Ok take a paper clip, and lightly graze it inside the chargerport of ur phone, slowlymove it left and right, lightly rub it against the top half of the little piece inside the charger port, look at yr creen andwait for car kit to turn off. if ur phone turns off, dw. turn it backon adn dont rub the area u were rubbing wen it turned off.
once car kit turns off, it most likely will turn back on, repeat thisstep. eventually,it will go away forever.
it took about a day for the car kit to stay away completely for me.
trust me, i've been were u are. i tried everything and it never worked. then wen all hoped seem lost, at 11:30 at night, i found this and it worked beautiful.
also, u dont need to use a paper clip, anything metal will work. but paper clips the best because of there size.=]

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

there's 2 things you need to do to get these 2 devices to communicate. One is to make the bluetooth kit "findable" (for lack of a better term). and also have your phone search for the searchable device. I'm not sure what your phone car kit is.... but check the instructions on how to put it into search mode. (I know that with a bluetooth headset, you hold the on button in and the indicator will change to a different color indicating search mode. once you figure this part of the equation out, then access the phone menu for blue tooth and search for bluetooth findable equipment and it should list your car kit on the phone screen. After that it is just a matter of entering a typical 0000 id code if needed and it should be paired with your carkit. hope this helps...
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. Also this can happen due to shortening of the 2 power pins at the bottom. Try using an alluminium piece cone shaped and toggle the pins. They will come out. Car Kit mode comes sometimes due to moisture in the power pins, shortening it.

OKAY THERE IS WHAT YOU DO:
1.GET A PIN OR NEEDLE POINT.
2.LOOK AT THE CHARGER PORT
3YOU WILL SEE THE COILS OR THE PRONGS THAT YOUR CHARGER CONNECTS TOO
4 NEXT TO THE COILS, EITHER ON LEFT SIDE OR RIGHT SIDE THERE IS A SMALL BUTTON. LIKE A CIRCLE LOOKING THING. IF YOU CAN NOT SEE IT NO BIG DEAL
5. STICK YOUR PIN INSIDE PUSH THE LITTLE CIRCLE. IF YOU DON SEE THE CIRCLE PUSH IT ON BOTH SIDE

This is an old post but in case anybody searches and finds it...The infamous "car kit" mode on LG phones is a problem I had. Your service provider will claim the phone got wet (they will look at indicators in the battery compartment and on the battery itself that turn blue in the presence of moisture. Trouble is, they will eventually turn blue just from humidity even if the phone wasn't given a bath). Search the web; there are one or two forum threads with many suggested solutions (such as resetting error codes in the service menu, scrubbing out the battery connector with a toothbrush, plugging/unplugging the actual car kit connector, etc.). None of these suggestions gave a permanent fix (YMMV) for me and I eventually bought a new phone.
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...
