We will show you how to fix the Kia Telluride CarPlay not working issue and make sure that your vehicle is functioning properly.

Common Reasons for Kia Telluride CarPlay Not Working

The failure of a Kia Telluride CarPlay system can be due to something as simple as a loose USB cable. This is because there are times when the USB cable can be damaged and in that case, the Kia Telluride CarPlay system will not work.

This can also be due to connectivity issues with the vehicle itself. There are times when the Bluetooth or Wifi connection may be disrupted. This can be due to something as simple as a power outage or even a software glitch.

Kia Telluride CarPlay not working can also be caused by outdated or corrupted software. It is very important to update the software on your Kia Telluride CarPlay system to ensure that it works correctly and it will also improve the overall performance of your system.

Ensure that Airplane Mode is disabled on your phone before you start using it, because doing so will disable all of your wireless capabilities. If the Airplane Mode toggle is green, just tap on it once to disable it. That way, you will be able to pair your car wirelessly.

Restart the system

If it still doesn’t work, check if the CarPlay icon on your car’s display shows that you can’t use CarPlay with your iPhone. If it still doesn’t work, try restarting both your iPhone and your car.

How to restart an iPhone depends on the model of your iPhone. Those who are experiencing problems with their car’s infotainment system should first consult their user manual. If the problem still occurs, try restarting both iPhones and trying to use CarPlay again to see if it works.

Check the USB cable

If you’re using CarPlay while your phone is attached to the computer via a hardwire, there may be a problem with your Lightning cable. Test that you have a valid cable by checking it externally to make sure it’s working. Then try it in another setting. You might try trying to charge a different device by using the cable to see if it charges that device.
