I just purchased a Kia Forte EX yesterday. I was trying to pair my bluetooth phone to it this afternoon, following the instructions in the manual. I press the button, say "setup", and a voice says something in a foreign language. Is there some way to make it speak, and understand English?
thanks,
Mike

Tried again today, and still can't get it to work..I press the button on the steering wheel, and there is no voice till I say something....I say "setup", and the voice replies "delto". One time it said something pretty fast in English, but I couldn't understand everything it said....I again said "setup", and it replied "delto".
thanks
Mike

If you want to change the language, there must be no cellphone paired with your Bluetooth system. Unpair your cellphone and try what (K)illed (I)n (A)ction said.

I never got my cellphone paired with the car. May be one from the previous owner...How do I unpair one? I still can't get my cellphone to pair with the car. All I get is the "Deldo" when I say anything. I hold the steering wheel button and there is no voice...till I say something.

Not just press... press and hold. From the response (or lack of one) I think you are just pressing the button. Hold it (around 15 seconds) until you hear the language prompts.

I've held it for much longer than 15 seconds. After a while, the radio display changes from "listening" and goes back to the radio station.

Here is my issue: I hit the bluetooth button, then hold it for a long time (>15 seconds). The french woman comes on and says "pardon". I never get a language change option/ voice prompt, even if I continue to hold the button. It just says pardon again twice then goes back to radio function. What should I do?

I finally got my language to change, after holding the button for a long time....almost a minute. Got my phone paired with the system. Couldn't get the voice dial, or phonebook to work. I could receive calls thru the bluetooth, but to make a call, I had to dial with the cellphone, then press the talk button on the steering wheel to transfer the audio to the bluetooth system..A couple days ago, I tried making a call with my phone, and it would only work using the bluetooth. I turned bluetooth off on my phone, and made my call. Now it won't connect again. I deleted my phone from the system, re-paired my phone, tried to connect, and it always says "connection failed".
Now what?

Sheesh just go to the dealer. When we took delivery of our forte 5 SX the salesman explained the bluetooth to my wife while i signed off on the walk around inspection.

The dealer should have never let you leave without getting it setup.

So, I hold down the hands free activate button (right hand side of the wheel) for as long as possible, but I never get any cycle through languages. All I get is "pardon" and then hands free shuts off. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?
