Hi Guys...

I have samsung galaxy s2 .. i love it .. but since 1 week the phone is acting crazy .. and i did everything i know to solve that crazy thing
but it's not working at all
when i start the phone .. its fine .. but after a while like 1 minute .. driving mode enables its self Automatically .. and the voice talk comes on the screen ..!!
i tried to disable it .. but it comes on again and again .. and phone sometimes says that the USB is plugged on and charging .. when it's already not !! .. and sometimes it says that im plugging AC on the usb port .. when i plug it on my pc !!and the auto rotate for the screen is allways enabled .. even it was disabled on the settings!! .. and when i set the powr off .. it runs again by it self!
i tried to wipe data to factory,wipe cache, changed the Kernil , even change the whole rom to other roms .. but the problem is still comming ..!
Please help and i'll be thankfull
i love the phone and i dont wanna lose it

It's possible that it's a software problem, but I strongly suspect this is a hardware issue. Sorry to say that RTM may be the only answer!

Like I said, you can't rule out a software issue, but it sounds more likely that there's a physical problem with the USB port and it's making the phone think it's in car mode every now and then. If it were a software issue then I think we'd see a LOT more people with the issue. When you think about how many SGS2 users there are on XDA, and compare that to the number of people who have had this issue you'll see that it's a tiny number really. That definitely sounds more like a manufacturing issue than a software one.

i agree with you actually .. it seems like a hardware problem .. not a software one cuz i literally changed everything on the device .. kernel,rom everything .. but hardware !
let's wish that it's a software problem even if we were 99% sure that it's a hardwore issue ...
thanks again ..

I have the same problem with my Galaxy S2. It started like a week ago or something. I tried to upgrade the firmware to the latest, but it seemed like that only made it worse. I haven't rooted my phone, so I'm obviously using the stock rom. Any tips to what I should try to do? It's a really annoying problem.

Car mode is triggered by a certain resistance value between pin 4 and 5 on micro usb plug, either dirt, oil, sweat on exterior part of it (most likely) or some condensation/oil on the inner part- where it's soldered to the the mainboard.

My advice would be to take out the battery and try to clean it with small brush, contact spray ( make sure it dries out before attaching the battery)....or go to a phone repair center to have the plug cleaned...
it should do the trick

I tried cleaning it with contact spray but it didn't work. Haven't tried using a small brush yet, cause I haven't got one. Any other suggestions or should I just explain the problem to Samsung and send it in?

Edit: Nevermind. I noticed that car mode wasn't popping up later in the evening. I restarted my phone and now it seems to be working perfectly. Thanks for the help!
