Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Kia Sportage Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 152012

Sportage 2.0L

  • Manual transmission
  • 151,000 miles


The stock Kia radio now always says "CD-IN". I usually always listen to my iPhone via FM transmitter, but have a 90's cd in for when I have bad data reception. I pushed the "CD.C" button and the radio screen said "cd13" for a few seconds, then "EJEC" and ejected the CD. After the disc was out it still said "CD-IN" and pushing the CD.C button resulted the same cd13 and ejec. I tried the reset button and now it still says CD-IN but when you press CD.C the screen flashes "no-cd". If you put a disc in, it takes it but does nothing (doesn't auto switch to cd mode) and manually switching gives the same messages. If you press the eject button the screen will briefly flash "EJEC" and the disc will come out, but the radio continues to think it's in there (CD-IN indicator still on), will flash "no-cd" and continue on FM mode.
