    Randy Young, radio security codes are usually written in your car manual or given to you when you purchase the vehicle. If you don’t have the radio security code, you would have to obtain it from the Kia dealer. Hope this helps.

  • Reply ModifiedLife July 21, 2009 at 1:53 am

    Trey, you may have mixed up the battery constant and accessory switched wires. The battery constant always sends power to the radio to save your radio stations and other audio settings. The accessory switched wire sends power to your radio only when the key is in the ignition and your car is on. Check your wiring and make sure the correct radio wires are hooked up to the correct wires on your factory harness. Hope this helps. Good luck with your radio installation.

  • Reply ModifiedLife June 17, 2010 at 12:19 am

    Heidi, most late model vehicles do not have rca inputs to feed an mp3 audio signal to your factory stereo. You would have to install automotive auxiliary input adapter. An automotive auxiliary input adapter will allow you to input any mp3 player or portable music player into your factory radio. Here is the adapter you will need:

  • Reply ModifiedLife January 3, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Lisa, double check ALL your fuses using an Automotive Fuse Tester because certain vehicles may have a wire tied into another circuit not labeled as car radio. You may have additional fuse boxes by the driver side of the dash, passenger side of the dash, driver kick panel, passenger kick panel, under the steering column or under the hood. If all of your fuses are good, your 2003 Kia Spectra radio may be faulty. We suggest you take your car to an experienced audio installer or mechanic and have them troubleshoot your problem. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2003 Kia Spectra stereo troubleshooting.
