How do I reset the Bluetooth in my Kia Sorento?

I just bought a used Kia Sorento, and the previous owner’s stuff is still in the Bluetooth menu. I’ve deleted some of it, but is there a way that I can just reset the whole thing and start fresh?

You can reset the Bluetooth on a
Kia Sorento
by pressing Setup > Phone Connection > Bluetooth > Default > Yes on your Kia’s infotainment screen. This will set the Bluetooth back to the factory default settings, and you should be good to go.
This will wipe absolutely everything from the Bluetooth, so if you’ve already paired any devices of your own, you’ll need to do it again. As an important side note, the four-digit factory default authentication code that you’ll need for paring is 0000.
It’s not just the Bluetooth that might need a reset on a used car—it’s a smart move to take your Kia in for a
tune up
to make sure everything is in working order. From there, you can move on to the fun purchases, like
steering wheel covers
and dashboard ornaments!
