Bluetooth connects then disconnects...
« on: June 09, 2018, 12:14:56 PM »
I know bluetooth issues have been rife - but grateful for some help.

I had fully operational bluetooth for a couple of months after buying the car - and it suddenly died. Did all the usual checks/fuses out etc but no joy - so bought a second hand unit on ebay. Just fitted it and pairing mode now works. I can find the bluetooth module with my phone (iphone6) enter the new pass key - and it connects for about 1 second and then immediately disconnects.

Any thoughts??? The second hand module has the vin number from whatever donor vehicle it came from as its identification name - but not sure if that’s of any relevance?

Many thanks!!!

E53 should be plug and play with those modules.

For no known reason.... this now works perfectly! Old module was definitely dead - new one is indeed plug and play and now works fine...!

Thanks!
