Sounds like your phone needs to be replaced. When a phone wont come off of car kit, it means that there is something wrong with it. My friend had this same phone, and verizon told her to replace it. Its an older model phone, so I'm guessing you have had it for some time. There is a chance that you could have it fixed, but it would probably cost you more to do that than to just get a new one. Good luck.

Phone says


Car kit mode means one of two things, first it could have a piece of lint or paper stuck in the charge port making it think there is a car kit plugged in, or second it could be that some moisture got into the port and its giving a indication that something is plugged in. There is no specific setting to turn on or off 'car kit' mode

Car kit mode


Car kit mode is usually caused by debris in the phone's cable connector (at the bottom of the phone). The debris causes two or more contacts to be electrically connected to each other, causing the phone to think it's connected to a car kit. Remove the battery from the phone and clean the cable connector contacts with some rubbing alcohol and the corner of a towel. Also, try using an opened paperclip to scrape the contacts in the connector, this will remove any corrosion that may have built up.
Also this can happen due to shortening of the 2 power pins at the bottom. Try using an alluminium piece cone shaped and toggle the pins. They will come out. Car Kit mode comes sometimes due to moisture in the power pins, shortening it.

My phone is in car kit mode i cant use my phone how do i take it off?


You have not mentioned the make and model of your phone. In the settings there must be some place where you had specified the car kit. Put it back in the normal mode in the settings. It must be in connectivity thru USB or some such place. Try to find the car kit option and change it.

Same problem as this person.


Hello

Im sorry to hear about your problem.

If this problem happened directly after getting water on your phone then it could have been a result of shorting out and putting the phone in car kit mode (the mode for when you are using it along with a car kit) . If this is the case then your phone can't be fixed.

If the problem did not appear after the water damage then you may want to refer to the manual to find instructions on switching the phone off of cat kit mode.

Post back if you have any further questions. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Car kit mode


ok take a paper clip, and lightly graze it inside the chargerport of ur phone, slowlymove it left and right, lightly rub it against the top half of the little piece inside the charger port, look at yr creen andwait for car kit to turn off. if ur phone turns off, dw. turn it backon adn dont rub the area u were rubbing wen it turned off.
once car kit turns off, it most likely will turn back on, repeat thisstep. eventually,it will go away forever.
it took about a day for the car kit to stay away completely for me.
trust me, i've been were u are. i tried everything and it never worked. then wen all hoped seem lost, at 11:30 at night, i found this and it worked beautiful.
also, u dont need to use a paper clip, anything metal will work. but paper clips the best because of there size.=]

Car Kit mode on


Have you used the start up mode on your phone? Take out the sim card and restart the phone on off line mode then close and when you turn on your phone with sim card restart in general mode.

Car kit mode???


The Car Kit message is usually caused by corrosion in your charging port. Yes, holding * may revive the phone, but your best bet is to get some contact cleaner and a toothbrush and clean out your charging port.
