2015 Optima

I had been using Android Auto for years and then it suddenly stopped working. The behavior that I am seeing now is that I plug my phone into the USB port. The charging icon shows on my phone for a split second and then goes away. This cycle happens repeatedly as long as the phone is plugged in (icons shows, goes away).

Confirmed that the cable and phone work in other vehicles. Just replaced the whole USB assembly. Re-updated the head unit. Still get the same results.

Being as it won't even stay charging (to the extent that a car can charge a phone) I don't think it is an Android Auto issue.

Could this be a wiring issue? Anyone have any ideas on how to confirm?

If you happen to have an iPhone and iPhone charging cable around, test with that--this will test if you can completely eliminate your phone and/or your cable as the culprit. Secondary option is find another Android phone and another cable and test that combo.
