Default Bluetooth problems - 7th November 2013, 07:20 PM

On my home tonight I noticed that my phone was no longer connected via Bluetooth to the car........I have not done anything unusual so I'm baffled as to why it should have stopped working.

I've checked my phone and it displays the bluetooth symbol plus the car still thinks it's paired.......any suggestions?

I wondered if it had just lost its marbles and therefore should I disconnect and reconnect or is it more serious......

Anybody had this or something similar?

'Forgetting' a pairing seems to be a regular occurrence on my car. A low phone battery doesn't seem to help but I'm not sure it's the cause.

Deleting the pairings and recreating them seems to be the only cure and I'm getting rather fed up of doing it every couple of months or so.

Thanks for that......I will try it tomorrow.

Seems strange though......first time it has happened in 18 months!!

Dammit - speaking out on this subject has made my car forget its pairing (does the car read this forum?).

Curiously, it will do all the pairing and code-sharing bits fine, so communication isn't the problem, but everything hangs at "Connecting...." for enough minutes for me to give up.

Arrrgh, technology!
