No Bluetooth music...what am I doing wrong?

So I've played music through BT before, but it doesn't seem to work now...I recently hooked up my iphone 5 thru the USB and I recalled that maybe I had to unplug that for BT music to work again, so I did so and still didn't work..I even restarted the car to see if that was it, but no go. So can anyone tell me what the secret is to get BT music from my iphone 5 to the car is?

I know this is probably something simple, so have mercy on this 550 newbie.

Edit: OK, found answer in another thread. Need to re-pair. bah.

Don't plug your iPhone to USB in center arm rest, it resets audio profile for the device.
Use cigarette-lighter to charge your iPhone

haha, yes! FYI, the correct answer is in the post before yours and also note that if you had read my post all the way through you would have seen I had already found the answer before anyone responded.

Try repairing (and make sure to check the Audio option), plus on the iPhone, you have to pick which "speaker" it goes out to.
