Question about LG VX9800 Cellular Phone
My LG VX9800 cell phone displays "car kit" across the screen and when it says that i cant hear any sounds and no one can hear me. How do I remove the phone from this setting?
Hello everybody. This morning I woke up and my phone said car kit on it. As the other people have said above, I tried to starighten out my prongs as best as possible. Then, I plugged my charger into the phone, while on, and I made sure that it was securely plugged in. Once it was securely plugged into the phone, I wiggled it back and forth and voila, it worked all of a sudden. As I was wiggling it, the car kit message was coming on and off. Once I noticed that the message was off, I took the phone out of the phone charger and everything was good to go.
This is a very strange problem, but luckly it is fixable.

Yea I dont have the prongs either they are all attached onto a chipboard that keeps them together, however I still stuck a pin inside the charger port, turned the phone back on and it turned off the car kit message. Thanks Much~!~

How do you bend the prongs? Mine are all on like a plastic board that dosen't allow them to move seperatley. I am so confused. Someone please give me more detailed instructions on how to fix this stupid carkit. Thank you.

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

Theyr'e Right!!! I have an LG phone and I had the same problem for like 2 months. I read the solutions and I looked where my charger plugged in and sure enough there was a bar bent. I took a nail and pushed it back up and Presto!!!! Car KIT_no MORE. I made a *611 test call and it went through.

I just had the same problem out of nowhere this morning. After reading the advice above, I noticed one of the pins on my charger area was out of place, actually bending over another pin or two. I moved the pins back its normal location with a little wiggling, and voila, no car kit error. I guess when certain pins touch each other, it f's up the phone. Just be careful not to bend the pins too much or you may break them.

I had the same :"car kit" message, and Verizon had no clue. I noticed that a couple of the pins in the charger port had been bent, and were touching each other. I carefull straightened the pins so that they were each the same distance apart from each other, then turned the phone on. Phone fixed.

I had the same problem after my 8 month old drooled all over (and into) my wife's vx9800. I read a fix on another phone's solution and decided to modify it and gave it a try:
1) Turn off the phone and take off the battery.
2) Dry out any readily visible moisture and allow the phone to dry for a couple of hours.
3) Take a pointed object (I used a pin) and gently scrape around the inside of where the charger plugs into the phone. Clear out any dirt and/or corrosion that has accumulated in that area.
3) Put the battery back on and turn the phone back on.
PRESTO!!! The "Car Kit" message is gone, and my wife is able to make and receive calls again.

"car kit" usually means the phone got wet...
unfortunately there is no way to fix it...
