The Kia Telluride is a very attractive crossover SUV. It is also a very expensive vehicle, but it offers an excellent level of standard equipment and it is well built. It is one of the best Kia vehicles in the U.S., so it should have a strong resale value when you decide to sell it on.

However, if you want to learn how to fix this problem yourself or how to avoid having it happen in the first place, read on.

Troubleshooting Kia Telluride Clock Not Working

Damaged horn

You might not be able to honk as loudly on your Kia Telluride anymore, it could be that the horn is too worn to work correctly. Horns rarely fail; they last for many years and are often necessary to maintain your Kia Telluride. But they fail to work if you regularly use them. If the horn on your Kia Telluride is working but the sound is gone, it could be that one of the horns is worn out.

Test the horn in your Kia Telluride by checking the voltage at its horn connector or by using a test light to shine a test light on the horn.

A blown fuse

Your horn on a Kia Telluride requires electricity to work. If there is a faulty fuse, the horn will not function properly. When a fuse blows, the horn does not work. Check the fuse location on your Kia Telluride by looking in the owner’s manual or on the fuse box cover. If the fuse blows, it is very important that you replace it with a fuse that has the same amp rating as the fuse that is blown.

If a fuse blows, take it out of the fuse box and hold it against the light to see if it is damaged. If you see a metal strip that breaks in the middle and it shows that a fuse has blown, it is clear that a fuse has blown. Replace the fuse with a fuse with the same voltage and, therefore, of the same color. It does not matter which way you insert the fuse, as long as it is located in the correct place.

Fixing Kia Telluride Clock Not Working

Before looking for a replacement, it’s a good idea to try resetting the clock on your Kia Telluride. To do this, you need to press the GPS button on the radio to turn it off momentarily, which will usually reset the clock.

You can also try ejecting and reinserting the SD card. Finally, try removing the multimedia fuse, letting the car sit with the power off for a bit, then reinserting it.
