    thanks but its fixed now. When it goes in car kit mode you hold down the * button and its going to vibrate and then your phone should go back to normal. i had taken it to the verizon store and thats how they fixed mine.

    Thank you so much. I dropped my phone in the sink while it was on and it went into car kit mode (at first I couldn't use any of the buttons). After using a hairdryer on it's warm and cold setting and throwing it around the room a little (only into soft objects like the bed), it still wasn't working. I came to this solution (of using a toothbrush on the charger port), and though I didn't have any contact cleaner, I just used the toothbrush while the phone was off, powered back up, and it was no longer in car kit mode! Thanks so much!

    I have the same problem. My phone got semi-wet(not soaked) and it kept working but then i noticed it in "car kit" mode and I can't get it out of that mode. I just tried the suggestion of holding down the star key and that did nothing for me.

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.

I also had 'car kit' appear on my cell phone and i took a cue tip with alcohol and cleaned the slot where you insert your charger and then i took a little brush and cleaned it. I turned the phone on and there was sound. It works now.

In the charge port, make sure none of the pins are contacting each other, if any of the last three pins on the right are touching, it will go into car kit, this is how I fixed mine.

LX VX5300 stuck on car kit


I have the same phone. I have had that same problem before. What i did to fix it was to take a blowdryer (on the cool setting -not warm or hot) and take the battery out and blow the phone with it. The reason it says carkit is because moisture got into the phone somehow. Mine first started saying carkit when my friend dunked my phone in a cup of water. I hope this helps you with your phone. Also if the blowdryer doesnt work then try using a can of pressurized air.

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.
