Take your phone apart, an using a soft toothbrush clean the CN302 connection at the base of your phone, next to the connector there's a U204 IC with identinfication AAD1 on it. Those are the main areas that needs to be cleaned. For better results you can use a bit of NON-alcoholic cleaning detergent. This will solve your problem.
Best of luck

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

I have an LG LG-VX8300 cell phone. It's stuck on ''car kit'' and I can't use it. I have no idea how it got on ''car kit''. How do I fix it?

I can almost guarantee that if you look closely at the contact pins in your charging port, you will find they are either slightly (or extremely) corroded, or bent out of shape. Try cleaning the contacts with a toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol.

"Car Kit" is a device that you plug into the charging port of an LG phone for hands-free use. If you are not using a device of this nature, and still see "Car Kit" displayed, it means that you got the phone wet or otherwise damaged the charging port.

you can also try resetting the phone
#1) press soft key for menu
#2) then press 0
#3) you'll have a service code prompt, type 000000
#4) then type 2 (it should be field tests)
#5) then type 4 (clear errors)
#6) choose yes for clear errors
#7) press clear once
#8) type 1 (Service Prg)
#9) choose ok soft button (in the middle) all the way through until the end. Then the phone will reset.

Car kit is on and i can't turn it off.

I would rub a piece of metal where you plug the charger in on the bottom. A paper clip seems to work well. This will reset the phone and should be ok. It worked for me when my phone got wet and was stuck in car kit mode.

Good Luck

Car kit on display screen

It's actually something wrong with your phone. The connector on the bottom of the phone may have gotten wet. If you are comfortable taking the phone apart you can clean the connector w/ 99.5% isopropyl alcohol and a soft bristled brush. Good luck.

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.
