Many people know the Kia Seltos to be a reliable car that is manufactured by the Korean car company. But it does not mean that it is perfect, as this car has its flaws and defects. One of these flaws is the volume knob which can be broken or damaged when someone puts too much pressure on it.
When you use your car’s volume knob to adjust the volume of your stereo system, you may notice that there is no sound coming out from your speakers. This is because the volume knob has been broken or damaged and you need to get it fixed as soon as possible.
How to Fix Kia Seltos Volume Not Working
If you have this problem, do not worry as we have a solution for you! We will guide you on how to figure out exactly what is wrong with your volume knob and how to fix it. Here are the steps that you need to follow:
Check loose wires
It’s possible that you have a problem with the car stereo wiring or a faulty speaker. Because speaker wires are routed behind some things, like under seats and under the carpet, it can be difficult to visually inspect them.
See if you can find continuity between each wire and speaker ends, then that means that the wire that you need to connect to the amplifier is broken. If you don’t see any continuity between the wires, that means that the wire is a faulty one. If you see continuity, that means that the wires are short.
Check the fuse
Find the fuse box in the fuse box of your car. Locate the fuse panel in your car and follow the instructions in the manual to see what fuse is located where. Open the fuse box cover and look inside.
Remove the fuse that controls the amount of power your car stereo has. Look for cracked wires or burnt glass that may be leaking out of the fuse box. Replace any fuses in the same location that were damaged, and see if that was the problem. Then, move on to the next issue.
Check the speakers
If a speaker blows, your stereo will sound muddy and your music won’t be clear. Car stereo speakers can blow up due to old age or when they’re driven too hard, for a long time. When a car stereo speaker blows up, you’ll only hear a fuzzy, muddy sound that your car stereo is trying to recreate. But if you have a blown stereo speaker, you’ll need to have someone replace it.
You may also notice that some noise from the engine is picking up on the stereo. If you notice that the pitch of the hum of the radio increases and then falls with the engine being run, that’s what we call alternator whine. When a component of your audio system is not grounded properly, it causes the stereo system to not be able to reproduce the sound that it intended to reproduce. It happens when a component in the audio system is not properly grounded. If that happens, have your technician test the system to find a weak connection in the ground.
