Mein Auto: 2007 X3
bluetooth?

Hello, I just purchased a 2007 X3 with 88000km. The previous owner stated they could never get the Bluetooth to work. Well I look to where the module should be and of course there is no module.
Did the 07 X3 ship with everything in place for Bluetooth capabilities but no Bluetooth module? The vehicle has the Business cd option.
I have the Bluetooth "puking" man on the steering wheel controls...I see the large wire plugin in the Bluetooth module area along with 3 small coax (black/blue/white.
Can I simply get a Bluetooth module (TCU?) and have it work in this X3?

TIA
Tony

You need a cream FAKRA coax, a 54 pin connector, a microphone, a BT antenna. Check for each of these things.

these are the wires located where the Bluetooth module should be.... so what am I to look for in a ULF/TCU?

Either one, If you get a ULF you'll need a pairing button, the TCU goes into pairing mode automatically.
