Bluetooth

Post by Megalot » Sat Aug 10, 2019 3:04 pm

Hi

I have a 54 plate D3 HSE. It has all of the phone controls on the head unit and steering wheel and I’m assuming, from the handbooks, that there is a Bluetooth unit in there somewhere too. I have an iPhone XS which will not pair with the car, is it possible that the Bluetooth unit in the car is faulty? If so are they easy to replace. To get a hands free unit fitted is in excess of £250 so a replacement Bluetooth unit would be half that. Whereabouts in the car is it locatde

Thanks

Possibly it’s had the steering wheel changed.

Factory fitted it’s in the boot panel drivers side.
Dealer fitted its under the gear selector console.

If you lift the centre cubby lid, if there’s no electronic connector in the lid, then it’s dealer fitted or you don’t have it fitted.

Just been to the dealership that sold the car in 2005, they gave me the build details. It doesn’t appear to have Bluetooth installed. That explains why the phone won’t pair :D

A parrot system looks like the best bet now
