There are a few different things that can go wrong with your Kia Sportage bluetooth system that can cause it not to work properly or even stop working altogether. This article will provide you with some simple steps on how to fix any problems that may be causing your Kia Sportage bluetooth not to work properly.

Common Issues With Kia Sportage Bluetooth

If your Bluetooth devices can’t connect, it could be because they’re not in their normal range or aren’t in pairing mode. If you are having persistent problems connecting Bluetooth devices, try restarting your devices and allowing your phone or tablet to forget the connection.

Double-check that your mobile device, whether it’s a smartphone or other electronic device, is compatible with your Kia. If all is well, double-check that the AUX or USB cable that you are using works. If not, try using a different cable. Try using two different cables in a different vehicle to make sure that they both work and to see if there are any tears in the plastic. Bad cables could be the cause of all your problems. If it’s not a bad cable, try these other options.

Sometimes Bluetooth will not work between two different devices, due to a variety of reasons, such as being very near to each other, not being compatible with each other, interference from WiFi or other radio waves, or a low battery.

Try reconnecting

Restart your device and try connecting again. Turn Bluetooth off on your phone. When you are prompted to do that, go to Settings > Bluetooth and turn it off. Wait for about 5 seconds, and then try connecting again. So, turn off Bluetooth for about 5 seconds and then turn it back on.

Try disconnecting all your devices from the Kia and completely removing all the information that you want to see in the vehicle’s infotainment system. You should only be able to pair with one device at a time. Any other devices that you do not use should have their Bluetooth turned off to avoid any problems.

Clean the area

Remove all clutter, including any coins or pens, from near the vehicle infotainment system. This will enable a strong connection between the Kia and your phone. Then turn off Bluetooth on both your phone and your Kia. Start the car and then connect your device. Now that you have both devices restarted, try turning on Bluetooth on your devices. Then try connecting them again.

Charge up your device

Make sure that your smartphone’s battery is fully charged before you start driving. If your smartphone’s battery is low, it will make a weak signal, which causes problems, such as dropped calls.
