One of the features that the Hyundai Kona offers is a touch screen center display. This display lets car owners control their vehicle’s infotainment system. If you find that the touchscreen display on your Hyundai Kona is not working, then here are some possible issues and solutions that might work for you.

Check for a bad fuse

The fuse box on your Hyundai Kona is likely located under the driver’s side. If you find that the fuse is not working, then this could be the reason why your touchscreen display is not working. In this case, you should replace the fuse and try using your touchscreen again.

Check for a software glitch

If the fuse does not work and there are no problems with your car’s electrical system, then you should check whether there is a problem with the software on your touchscreen display. You can do this by going to “Settings” on your Hyundai Kona and then selecting “Systems”. After that, select “Troubleshooting” from the menu and follow any instructions that appear in front of you to fix any problems with your system.

Look for issues on the connectors

Even if you think the car stereo is working well, but the display is not working, it is possible that the connection is the problem.

Some stereo displays have electrical connections that are attached to the board via either a lead or through connector. So, if your car stereo has an electrical connection to the board that uses a connector, it is probable that this problem will occur.

Check for a loose wire

If none of these solutions work for you, then you should check whether there is a loose wire in your vehicle’s electrical system. You can do this by using a multimeter to test the various connections of your car’s electrical system.

Check for a faulty backlight

Assuming that the fuse is in good shape, but the radio light is not coming on, it might be a good idea to check if the backlight of the front panel is good or not.

Most car stereos have a display that is lit by a small-sized led lamp that is placed at the rear of the panel. In the first instance, you should check the backlight thoroughly, because it is possible that that is the source of the problem.

Tinker with the setting for the dimmer

The new car stereos come with a knob for changing the brightness of the display whenever you want to. That includes the Hyundai Kona. If your display is not working as it should, you can check the knob to see if someone else has turned it to a very low value. When someone accidentally sets it at lower values, you may think that it is not working.
