bluetooth

Hey Guys and Gals
As you can see been a member for some time don't post often normally I find the answer by reading and searching. Here`s my problem I had my Bluetooth system working fine with I phone4 .
I installed a new battery (I even connected battery to system to help prevent power loss) last week now its not working when i try to activate the system nothing at all I checked the wiki and owners manual and fuses and all connections, other forms and Google found no help. So if anyone has a solution for this issue it would be appreciated

Thanks
VanO

VanO this may sound overly simple but have you tired to repair the phone with the car?

although i have an 06 it says only activate ignition once ,car not running, by going through menu on the radio press phone then bt till bt says yes then press phone again to activate it should say bt on then press again. when i got a new battery i had hard time also. try a different phone. if it does'nt say bt on in radio. your doing something wrong.
