This can mean your charger port is dirty or damaged. Look in the charger port, see if there are any little pins out of place, (Take out battary). and then try pushing them back in place. If that does not work, take it into store and have them check it. I have the blue one I love it, (even though every one else thinks its old) lol If it can't be fixed hopefully the tech can get you info out. The LG phones have been doing this "car kit" thing for many generations of LGs. I wish it was an EZr fix but it usally means something is wrong. Good Luck

Ok well try just turning off the phone and taking out the battery and then put the battery back in and turn it back on. Let me know if that fixes it.

Lg vx8300 verizon says car kit display have no


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. and thats why you're not getting any sound. There is no specific setting to turn on or off 'car kit' mode you can use a paper clip or something and mess with the port a little bit to see if 'car kit' goes away or replace phone

LG "car kit" switch


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. From the indication you are giving sounds like some moisture got in the phone via the charge port, you can try taking phone and battery apart and let sit overnight or put in bowl of rice to remove moisture

Car kit?


No you won't, all you have to do is, while the phone is on, stick a piece of tin foil (a SMALL piece, preferably folded up) into the slot where you plug in the charger and wiggle it around until the phone shuts off. Then plug it in, turn it back on, and everything will be back to normal. The same thing happened to me and this advice was given to me, so I tried it and crazy as it sounds, it worked. Don't waste your money getting it repaired when it doesn't require anything more than a little foil. The number one cause of "car kit" is: babies sticking the phone in their mouths. :)

I cant get my LG VX8300 verison wireless cell phone off of car kit.


I had the same problem. I used a hair dryer to dry out the port of the charger on the phone. Then I put the charger back in overnight, and in the morning the Car Kit was off of it. I was surprised it was so simple.

Car kit


there is no setting to find. clean charger port with rubbing alcohol and a tooth brush, be gentle. turn off - let dry and recharge for 2 hrs. worked for me. pain I know. taking battery out will not help. but should check battery conections to see if they are clean,do the same as above. if purple you have water damage. verizon warranty is void if this is the case.
