Re: 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.

HiCan you play songs ? If you can play songs then your earpiece is damage or short circuit and at the same time even if you play songs there is no sound then the problem comes from the Sound IC or its related components.So, if you can listen music just change the earpiece(the smaller speaker which is facing front side).Good luck
I just had this same problem. It is a hardware issue. Call verizon back explain the situation, they will call your phone to verify that the mic and speaker aren't working and they will send you a replacement within 2 days.
A temporary solution is plugging a wired headset into the phone and taking it out, it will work for a few hours.
I've read about this problem alot. The other people have resolved it by plugging in and removing a headphone adapter very quickly in rapid succession like 10 times. The problem is that your phone thinks there is a pair of headphones attached. You need to plug and unplug headphones quickly several times until the phone fixes it's glitch and figures out there isn't anything attached.
I just called LG and they said that when the CAR KIT mode comes on it means that it's a warning that the speaker is not working. There is no way to take it off (from what the guy at LG said). My phone went into CAR KIT mode and I think it might have to do that it got wet or something. (my daughter might have had it in her mouth!) Just an FYI.
I reinserted the wall charger a couple of times and it made the "car kit" go away. My guess is that two pins in the little connector inside the phone somehow got shorted together (dust or something). I saved the butter knife soloution for my last ditch attempt as I wasn't sure that shorting all the pins wouldn't increase the chances of damage to the phone. The post above definitely go the creative juices flowing since we had no idea how it got in "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.
