A problem that many people experience with their Kia Seltos is their display screen not working correctly or showing a blank screen. This is a troublesome error, as many users rely on their Kia Seltos display screen to show important information about their car. This error can be resolved with the following steps.

How to Fix Kia Seltos Display Screen Not Working

Check the fuses

If a fuse blows, the display on your car won’t work properly. If a fuse blows, your car won’t start or your car stereo won’t start when you turn it on (OR, it won’t turn on) because of the damaged fuse.

This fuse sits right where the display unit is and where the power goes. If you replaced the stock stereo with a newer one, you might have an issue where the aftermarket stereo won’t turn on because of a defective fuse. It’s normal for a fuse to blow and cause your power to go off. It might be that a fuse blew while you were away, but now you’re having problems.

Check the wiring

Problems with car display units may also arise due to the configuration of the specific wires that are used. Sometimes the screen in your car will stutter a bit, and other times, it will be completely blank.

The screen being blank when you turn on your car display sometimes is due to bad wiring. When wires are used, chances are that there will be loose wires. Wires can get damaged even when they are being tensioned. If your stereo display is acting strangely when you turn on your car radio or it is blinking brightly while you are driving, it might be time to check the wiring.

Check the LCD panel

Even though the display in the stock LCD units are known to be quite resilient, there might still be a bad one in there. If your display is defective from the factory, you probably need to get it fixed or get a new one installed.

Even if your display isn’t showing any problems, a damaged LCD panel will soon show all the defects it has. If you thought that your LCD screen was good, you could still be wrong. Some people are having problems where they have a car radio that works perfectly but has no display. This might be due to a defective LCD panel.

Check the head unit

Every electrical component could malfunction for a valid reason, and the main electrical unit in your car is very susceptible to damage. But even if the electrical equipment in your car has malfunctioned, it’s possible that they would do better if they had a bit of regular maintenance. Dust could build up inside the circuits, which would cause them to stop working properly.
