Audio System Fade Setting Not Saving

Discussion in 'Kia Stinger Technology Discussion' started by Never thought, Dec 29, 2017.

Are you having to set your audio system fade each time you start your Stinger?

  1. Yes, my setting reverts back to standard every time.

    36.4%
  2. No, mine saves exactly where I have it set.

    36.4%
  3. I leave mine at the default center setting.

    27.3%
  1. I was wondering if anyone else has this issue. I keep having to correct the fade of the sound system. For some reason, it keeps defaulting to the rear seats.

    When you change the bass and treble, does it ask you to SAVE the settings or does that happen automatically?
     
  3. Automatically.

    Well. There goes any chance of an easy solution. :eek: Let's see what others have to say. I imagine it doesn't work differently for the fade...

    I've not noticed this. I'll have to keep my eyes on it.

    Welcome aboard, @redgt! Thank you for signing up! And congratulations on your brand new Stinger! So... This seems to be an issue, huh? I'm going to change the name of this topic to attract more attention to it. We may need to bring this up to Kia Corporate...

    P.S. I've also added a poll...

    this happened again to mine

    I'll set it dead center and then a few days later it will be faded almost all the way to the rear

    I am having the same issue with my audio, wonder if they can fix it with a software patch.

    This does appear to be an issue as multiple people are having the problem. Has anyone brought this up to their dealer yet?
     
  12. I did. They said they are hoping for software updates. Nothing they could do. But hasn’t happened for a while for me

  13. Add me to the pile. When I looked the balance was completely faded to the rear. I drove most of the day wondering why my audio was sounding so shitty. And since my Stinger is the perfect mechanical and technologically advanced machine the likes of which we've never seen, I spent the entire time blaming first Android Auto, then my Pixel 2 XL. :rolleyes:

  14. Per the dealer, it should default to the middle anyways. It’s odd.

    There are many more settings that affect audio quality besides the Fade setting. Just saying.

    This happened to me yesterday for the first time I've owned the car since Dec. 12th. I'll see if it happens again.

    I'm not too bothered by it yet as it has only happened once to me so far. Now if this happens everyday I will have it fixed.
