Question about 2011 Hyundai Elantra Limited
Stereo is powered on but no sound from speakers
I ran into the same issue... everything was working correctly from the display screen (AM,FM,XM,iPod,Bluetooth) picking up stations, and all controls were working, but no sound at all. I called the dealer and found out there is a reset button that reboots the entire nav/audio system. It is a pin-hole located just to the left of the CD slot on the console. You will need a paper-clip or somthing that size to push it. Hold it in for a few seconds while the system is on and it will shut down and reset. I have to warn you that it does erase almost all of your presets, but did seem to keep my Bluetooth pairings and my nav address book. Good luck!

I lost all sound on my 2012 Elantra with navigation today while drive into work. I went into my office, searched online and found this solution, went out to the parking lot, gave it a try and it worked. I lost the presets on my AM/FM/XM, but my phone pairing data stayed intact. Thanks for the solution!

I thought it was the fuse, I spend so much time check every fuse related to the audio and all the fuse check out. I was about to give up and figure I will google it to see if anyone else have the same issue. This really saved me a trip to the dealership.

Thanks so much!! I have a 2022 elantra limited and all of a sudden I had no volume at all, not even sure when or how it happened. I was all worried until I googled the problem and came across your answer. I ran out to my car with a pen and it literally took me 2 seconds to fix. Made my night!!

Thank you so so much!!!!! I had to use a pen, not a paper clip, it seemed like the paper clip wasn't strong enough to do the reset, but I pushed in the pen tip on the reset button, held for 5 seconds, and the sound came back on! Thanks so much, I was depressed thinking of driving to work with no music, news or weather.

I have a system I installed in the car and was working great for 2 years. Today the sound went out and I was terrified that I'd have to go to the dealer and it would be a massive headache! THE RESET WORKED BEAUTIFULLY!!! I took a photos of all my presets and was back up in no time!!!!

It is to the left side top of the cd slot not really a button just a little indentation. I just reset mine, it took 2 seconds. We drove 1 1/2 hours into Nashville yesterday without a radio, not pretty.
Thank you for your help.

Had the same problem with my 2013 Elantra. Just happened. Looked up solution on your website and it fixed the problem! Thanks

THANK YOU!!!! I have visited the dealer today and they told me that only one way to fix my radio is to pay $ 3,970.00. I have no idea why they even did not say anything about this button((( I have tried it and it worked...I have a sound again!!!THANK YOU SO MUCH for your post!!!!!!!!

Thanks! I have a 2012 Elantra Limited and like everyone else, the sound suddenly stopped even though the radio/nav/xm display appeared to be working fine. I found another post that suggested I check the fuses (which I did) but that didn't work. I thought I'd try another search this morning and found your post. I hadn't even noticed the nearly microscopic reset button. I am happy to report that I just got back from my care with a paperclip in hand and a smile on my face! I can't imagine driving without music! What did they do in the 'old days'??? THANKS!!!!

I have Elandra limited 2011 and the sound for everything went out all of a sudden. I researched and found out to reset. Which I did and it restored sound except my GPS Still haven't figured out why this isn't talking. It works but no sound. Any suggestions how to get the GPS to have volume.

Hello Guys, in my elantra 2013 I have this issue but i don't have a reset hole, is there another way to reset? maybe a certain key combination?

Another satisfied googler here! Wife called and said wasn't working, took car out this morning with fear to have to go to dealership on my birthday weekend. One quick push with an ink pen later, and presto! :)

It works! Dealership claimed unit had to be replaced. Will never return to that dealership again. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The Reset Worked Great!!!! Thanks a Ton!!

Awesome. Thanks for this post. Our 2012 Elantra lost sound and this fixed it saving us from the dealer replacing the unit for $2400. However, our Bluetooth is not working. If you try to do anything with voice commands, it just says "initializing voice commands" but nothing happens. Any input on how this may be fixed?

Thanks a bunch to all of you. My Glenburnie MD dealer said it would take a reset or buy a new radio. Thousands since I have 66K on my 2012. What a rip off. Maybe I need to go back to US cars 100%.

I tried the reset button and it didnt work! same problem everything works but no sound can some1 please help!

As described in answer 1, I was able to reset a friend's 2012 Elantra radio in a few seconds. Turn car on and radio on then push end of mini paperclip into tiny hole at top left of radio. Push clip in to reset unit. Radio will turn off after few seconds. Push Radio power button to turn on and hopefully you will have sound back.
The dealer didn't mention this easy fix when my friend called.. they simply said she'd have to come in so they can check it out. Happily today she canceled the appointment.

Fantastic!! Thank-you so much. We just had the same issue happen and we were at 38 months on a 36 month warranty for the sound/GPS system and the dealer said to bring it in and they would look at it, and I looked it up to really see if others were having this kind of issue and found this post, and two minutes later with my paper clip in hand all is back to normal. Thank-you!
