X3 2008 Bluetooth

I have a 2008 X3 the bluetooth to connect to my iphone 5s only works when the temperature is above 73 degrees and now it's got to the point that it's got to be above 83. Does anyone know of a fix without replacing the whole computer unit? Is this happening to others?

Funny, but first time hearing such issue. Try battery disconnect for 5 minutes and retry.

does the module look like it had water on it or it has ever got wet? IF so, that is the problem. replace it with a used unit from ebay.

It is very common for the sunroof drains to get plugged and rain water down on the telematics module in back.

check your specs

download your owners manual and check if you have bluetooth etc.....http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Content/Owner/dgh.aspx


you can input your VIN in this link and get details of your X build specification
http://www.bmwarchiv.de/vin/bmw-vin-decoder.html

you can input the last seven of your VIN in this and get all your parts info

or if it did not come on your X .....obtain the kit....they have good youtubes on installation

If you have to replace the unit look on Ebay. I bought my unit there. You may find a deal
