    Fix. Blow usb plug with compressed air then clean out with a small brush & a tiny bit of metho, cleaning alcohol, or something else that won't damage ur phone. Then blow it again. This worked for me. Also u can disable auto launch in car mode settings

    my s3 keeps switching on car mode by itself and then switching it off again a fraction of a second latter. On, off, on, off, on, off it's driving me nuts! I never selected the car mode in the first place (and don't know how to anyway!) it's making using the phone difficult at best and now i've had to switch the sound off on my device as it's constantly bleeping on and off! I need help please!
    turn flight mode on and off it worked for me!

    Just wanted to thank you for the "clean with toothbrush" suggestion. I had the same annoying problem with my Galaxy Mega and cleaning the connector with an old toothbrush -and- using an air-pressure blower seemed to have fixed the problem.

    Seriously? Why should people type out the EXACT same issue they're having as all the others? I came here because I too am having these issues (that I will not type out word for word because everyone else has for me.) The main post says it all for you when we say we're having the EXACT SAME problem why do we need to type it all out?

    But as I got on this post all I noticed was yours and that other dudes "solution" being so unnerving and OBVIOUS that I'm wondering how the heck you think you both are helping ANYONE? Come on. You don't think we've ALL restarted our damn phones? Why would we come here BEFORE taking the battery out? You can't POSSIBLY think you're helping anyone. Christ!

    So yeah.... don't act like you can't solve a problem because its OUR fault. Seriously.

    I too had the same problem. I switched off the Hands - free mode off and the car mode was gone. Try and see may be thats the problem.

    Just whom are you relating to? "Yours", and "That other dude" don't make any sense.

    Hi David I just had the same thing happen to my phone and it started doing that car mode thing which is annoying. I finally got it to stop by downloading Antivirus security app in the play store. The app symbol has red, yellow, blue and green looking flags. After downloading it then click scan and once its done the car mode should go away.

    I was about ready to through my phone in the river, blowing out the charge port with a can of compressed air fixed it. The driving mode kept turning it self on and off for a couple of weeks...my phone works as it did before.

    Hello, where did you download this app as I cannot find 'disable car home' app in google play. I tried searching 'disable car mode' and also nothing. I only found an app called 'Car Mode Off', I installed it and it hasn't solved the problem.

    My S3 is doing the same car mode thing. It started with the last update on July 4 weekend. Also when it goes into car mode I can't turn the phone off without it turning right back on by itself. Seems to do it mostly when battery power drop below 70%. Also since last update the phone doesn't seems to not recognize the charger when plugged in; I have to remove battery and put it back in then it will be okay until power drops again.
    My phone did the same on both counts. Did not recognize the charger and could only charge when power was off and then also car mode that went on and off within seconds. I fixed this by cleaning the usb port with a toothpick. (toothbrush did not work for me as there was thick gunky black stuff stuck to it like glue). I stuck the point in there and cleaned around the sides and the middle thingy on top and at the bottom. The most goo was at the bottom of the middle thingy. After that my phone recognized the charger and no more car mode on and off. Hope this helps.

    seriously do everyone just have a car compressor hanging around? lol, ok i did the brush clean method but still happened tho less so (a little less), then went into settings display wake on plug and disabled it (so screen will not come on when connecting or disconnecting charger), it seemed to make a difference and it was the closest thing my phone would do. to the previous advice given earlier.

    working so far touch wood, Cheers I was starting to think my phone had been hacked
