Do a factory reset

If you cannot repair your mobile phone, you can perform a hard factory reset on your phone. It’s easier if you have an Android-based head unit as it allows you to perform the job more quickly. Even if your device is completely unresponsive, you can still perform the operation using a USB keyboard.By doing a hard factory reset, you can fix any software problem that you have and re-calibrate the device. So that will help if you need to repair your car stereo’s touch screen. Most car stereos come with a manual that explains how you can perform a factory reset.

Power off completely

Another solution to try out is to power down the car completely via the key fob. This is because doing so will ensure everything powered by the car will shut down with it. So, this is a way to do a complete reset of the car, which may solve your issue. Simply get out of your car, use the key fob and lock the doors shut, and then reopen the door and try turning the engine back on. You may find that resetting the infotainment system this way can solve your issue pretty easily.
