For a couple of months now, android auto isn't usable for me.
It starts normally when i connect the phone to the car (using the cable) but then, it gets disconnected, car reports "phone not responding" error message and then gets stuck in a loop of "reading USB" then "phone is not responding" and so on

I used a new cable, no luck
I connected my wife's phone to the car, it worked perfectly
I connected my phone to my friend's car, it worked perfectly
but whenever i connect my phone to my car, it doesn't work

Also, I've reaet the car's infotainment system, it didn't work
I've factory reset the phone, only installer Android auto on it but this also didn't work

car: 2017 kia forte
phone: Samsung s21 5G

It looks like you're having trouble with Android Auto in your Kia Forte. Since it works fine with other phones and cars, the issue might be specific to your Samsung S21 5G and your car's connection. You've tried different cables and even reset your phone, so it might be worth checking for software updates for both your phone and car.
Good Luck,
