Take a very small amount of rubbing alcohol on an old toothbrush and gently clean the charger port. Then get a paper towel and carefully dry up what you can. After that take a blow drier and blow out the port for about 2 minutes. Your phone might keep going back and forth to car kit mode. Clean it out again, dry it, then blow dry it again and it should switch back to regular mode. Keep doing this until it works. Note: I also threw mine at my bed and dropped it on the ground and that might have helped :) Your phone will survive anything. This is the best phone LG has ever made.

When mine was stuck in car kit mode, I used a hair dryer to dry the charger port. After I did that, I put the charger back in and let it charge overnight, and the car kit went off.

Most likely exposed to water...even at low levels. I put mine in a bowl of dry rice. Worked great to dry it out. Worked in one day.

SOURCE: car kit mode activated

I found this on another site, it worked like a charm... roll a VERY THIN piece of aluminum foil, and slide it (almost jiggle it) in the POWER SLOT. I tried it and it worked . Apparently saliva, water or anything liquid will make the connection to activate the phone into the 'car kit mode', so the aluminum foil acts as a conductor and switches your phone out of car kit mode...

Peace

SOURCE: vx8300 stuck in car kit

I just ran into this problem myself (besides that fucked up white main screen i have). So after reading all these other solutions i played with the thing and found that its one of the right-most pins in the charging port. Probabily a pin touching the metal housing or another pin completes the same electrical circuit used to determine if a car kit is hooked in. I figured this one by shoving a knife through the opening to clear out any debris and every-swipe made the "car kit" banner dissappear. so check for pins touching something it shouldn't. ( i said F-it and ripped that pin out!)

Hope this helps more

Stuck on car kit mode


I tried just taking out the battery, turning it off and on, and screwing with the settings. I took the battery out and a ran a mental fingernail file across the top and bottom of the pins where normally charge the phone from. I put the battery back in and it was out of car kit mode. It is working fine now! You can try this too.

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 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.

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.
