  1. Matt, first double check ALL your fuses and make sure ALL your fuses are good. You can do this by using an Automotive Fuse Tester and making sure all of your fuses are not blown. If all of your fuses are good, your 2008 Kia Sorento may have a factory amp that needs to be turned on by your after market radio. The car radio amplifier trigger wire has to be wired up to turn on your factory amplifier to output sound from your speakers. We currently do not have any information on the 2008 Kia Sorento amplifier turn-on wire but hopefully someone from our knowledgeable Modified Life community would be able to chime in and help you out.

  2. My 2008 Kia Sorento stereo turns on but no sound. I have a factory amp under the seat. I am hard wiring with no harness. Help

  3. Great post, lot of information. I will definitely share this to my friend as well. He is an expert on this field. He might get interested with this for sure. Thanks for the info.
