Bluetooth connectivity

Recommended Posts

Well, I finally have my S Type :)

 

My iPhone bluetooth finds the car and connects using 1313 but when I press the telephone icon on the side of the touchscreen, it says:-

 

"No telephone fitted"

 

Please can somebody let me know what I have to do?

 

Thanks

Can anybody help with this please?

 

I know it has had a working bluetooth phone because the required hash codes are written on the front of the driver's handbook

Mine says the same.

When I looked up the build spec from jaguar it says no phone prep.

If you've got it there should be a module above the satnav DVD player in the boot.

Have you ever had your phone connected via bluetooth??

Thanks :)

 

There is no obvious module, However the phone is finding and connecting to a bluetooth source in the car called "Jaguar"

 

The phone was successfully used with my previous Rover 75.

OK,

 

I've had my car's spec from Jaguar and it clearly states "bluetooth telephone connection".

 

There is definitely a bluetooth module in the car as my phone finds it, called "Jaguar", however, contrary to what i believed, my phone does not pair.

 

There is no telephone module in the boot where it would normally be situated above the Sat Nav DVD.

 

Now, why would somebody have the bluetooth module but not the Telephone module?

 

If anybody has the telephone module in their S Type PLEASE can you take a look and let me know the Jaguar part number?

 

Thank you.

The bluetooth module is under the cubby box in the centre armrest.

I think the one in the boot is for the voice control.

Also, some phones won't connect. Try a different phone model.

 Try a different phone model.

 

I should have thought of that ;)

Three different phone types produce the same result.

 

I'm even considering giving the car to my local dealer for diagnostics.

Happy now :lol: Problem solved. Replaced the phone controller mounted behind the Kaiser panel in the boot. Works perfectly with iPhone 6 :D

 

As a matter of interest, I took the car to a local dealership, who wrongly diagnosed the problem as a faulty bluetooth module, charging me £84 for the privilege, and offered to replace it for me for a very reasonable price of £991.

 

Considering you can buy the module on fleabay for, sometimes, less than £20, and fitting it takes five minutes, I thought that a very reasonable quote... NOT
