SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: car kit setting removal

I had this problem when I left my phone outside. It didn't rain, but it was 90 degrees and 80% humidity! I took out the battery and there was no moisture, so I scraped some with a knife into the charger port. Nothing. I kept trying, turning on and off and scraping and poking. I also plugged it into the charger and did a lot of wiggling. Something finally worked. No more "car kit". Thank God. My point? Don't give up, keep messing with the port and you may have luck. Better than buying a new phone, or even having to sign a new contract if you are eligible for a new phone

SOURCE: display says

Yes, it can be solved! This happened to mine and Verizon was no help. I finally found the solution on the internet. The little prongs inside the charging port are touching, get a magnifying glass and flashlight and you'll see it. I took a toothpick and seperated them and the problem was fixed instantly!

I cannot pair my HFS001 cruiser with my evo.


If, at the moment you turn your carkit on, the sentence 'Pairing mode' isn't heard, press and hold the answer/end button for some 5 seconds, until you hear that announcent. Then, make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a little while, your car kit should appear on the phone' screen. Select it and make it connect. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros, without the quotes).

By the way, you can download your car kit's user manual from this location. There, you will find detailed informations on how to pair it with your new phone. Hope you find it useful, somehow. Anyway, please, let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards, Carlos

Nokia 3109c with Bury car kit. Phone and car kit


Lawson,
did you solve the problem?
I have a similar problem, I can hardly hear my Nokia 3109C at full volume in the Bury carkit. The workshop told me that their Nokia worked fine, they suggested installing new firmware on my phone, however I have the latest version installed (7.21).

I can't hear you !!!!


Car Kit doesn't necessarily mean the phone got wet, but it does mean that there's a problem with the charging port. Most likely there's a lot of corrosion in there, and if you clean it out then it may get the phone working again.

The best way to clean your charge port is with some contact cleaner and a toothbrush.

If the problem persists after that, then you'll want to bring it in to a store and get the phone serviced or replaced.

Cell Phone Issue


Take a piece of metal like a bobby pin and rub it on the bottom of the phone where you plug the charger in. This will reset the phone. It work for me and saved me from buying a new phone.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!
