Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Are you using a wiring adapter at all to adapt the new radio to the vehicle?
Is there a stereo/vehicle accessory install facility located where you live?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
Do you know if your model has the sound amplifier installed in it?
No in your vehicle.Is the stock radio set up set up with a factory amplifier installed in your vehicle?
O.k.,with the amplified sound system the amplifier provides the sound watts to the speakers.This indicates the stock radio sent signals to the amp for the sound but didnt provide the sound itself.So if your after market radio provides its own sound with speaker outputs you will need to install an after market amp in some cases or see if you can locate a wiring harness adapter for the amplified stereo system.This adapts your vehicles wiring to the after market radio.If you were to wire your radio now to the amp it can damage the radio and amp.I located this harness here for your model and is the best option to allow this after market stereo to work in your model.
