27 Responses to Kia MyUVO – Reset and Initialize UVO

  1. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and the media streaming suddenly stopped working. I unpaired and repaired my phone with UVO several times and it still kept saying “no media found. Insert disc or USB cable”. I didn’t want to make another trip back to the dealer (media streaming stopped working once before) so I did some checking on the Internet and found this blog. After a week of no media streaming it was restored in less than a minute to the last song that was playing last week when it suddenly stopped working! Thank you so much!

    Where is the “Reset” button?

    Thank you so much. I found the reset this morning and was able to enjoy my favorite music. Before finding you Doug, my daughter had convinced me to take my Soul in for servicing–you saved the day.

    Worked great on my 2014 Kia Rio. The reset button was on the right side of the dash, just left of the Tune button.

    2013 soul. I can’t find this reset button. Looks like I have a AC1A0CSAN radio. Kia rep at first told me there was a reset button on the front, later said I had to go to the dealer.

    My reset button was just above the Tune button, (below Setup). It worked and restored my Jukebox and Media functions. Thanks for the help.

    I have a 2013 kia optima SXL. Phone menu won’t come up when I push PHONE button and I don’t see a reset button. INITIALIZING BLUETOOTH HANDS FREE is the only thing it says. Any thoughts would be helpful

    I have a 2013 Kia Forte that the radio, Bluetooth and the one USB have all stopped working. Had fuses checked and that’s not the problem. Any ideas

    Exact same thing happened. Jukebox and Media buttons stopped working on my 2017 Rio. I reset it and they are working again, but a little annoyed. Have to set everything back up (although I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Jukebox still seems to have music). My clock will probably be wrong forever now!

    I’ve only had the car for 2 months. Love it… but I hope this is not a regular occurrence.

    I have a 2013 Kia optima I have tried everything pulled fuses and hit the reset button still not working

      same here Curtis. I have a 2012 kia rio and have done both of those and still no luck let me know if you find a solution

    • Ken says:

      Same here, Curtiss. I tried the reset button and nothing happened. I have a 2014 Kia Forte. Just 9000 miles ago, I had the whole audio head unit replaced, and now it’s happening again. Kia says I have to spend $650 to get another unit, and my argument is “am I going to have to replace this audio head unit every 9k miles?!”

    Thank you! This is such a simple fix but I never even noticed the reset button. No more listening through my phone speakers in the car!
