Do you have a Kia Sorento with a UVO radio and the screen is blank? I'm going to show you how to reset it.

This radio, the screen is blank on this vehicle. No matter what you do, none of the buttons work. What you do is take a pen, and you're going to push this little button right here, with the key on, and now it's reset and the screen works. Let's see if it works. There you go. It works.

So, that's how you reset the radio. Now, it's important to note that this is just what you do in an emergency situation. If you're far away from the dealership, you can push this to get yourself out. Keep in mind when you hit that reset, that just resets the radio. That does not mean that you fixed the radio. There probably is an internal problem with the radio. You're going to want to call the dealership. Let them know that you got stuck and you had to reset the radio, and they will probably have to see the vehicle, so you may want to make an appointment.
