  1. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    My car doesn't have bluetooth. I'm not sure any of the older cars do. In any case, I bought an inexpensive bluetooth device. It's plugged into my cigarette lighter port and easily paired with my Iphone. I now need to connect it to an unused FM frequency. I can't get to one. Everything I do...

  3. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I have recently changed the 2 AAAA batteris in my webasto remote and now i can’t start the heater from the remote. It works fine to start the heater from the Idrive. So there is 3 buttons on the remote, I/O, start and stop. Normally you hold the I/O and release it, a green light is lit, then you...
  4. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    I have a strange problem with my bluetooth phones. I had 4 phones (MAX) paired. I updated my software to the latest and all the phones are missing in the list now. The phone still connects but if I try to play music or messages from the phone the system thinks that there is no phone and asks me...
  5. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hi, After numerous searches on various forums, I cannot seem to find a fix to my problem. When connecting my phone to the car, I cannot get my phone messages through the Office menu. There is no option for Messages in Office either. I have Nav Pro, 6NK. Using a Galaxy S6 Edge. Have tried...
  6. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Located Bluetooth PIN code in trunk. iPhone "sees" the BMW, but when I enter the PIN, always says "pairing unsuccessful". Hard rebooted iPhone, tried with BMW running and with BMW just in "electronics mode". Same result. Suggestions?
  7. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi I just purchased a 2007 X3 with the premium package w/bmw assist and flip up navigation. I have been trying to pair my phone and cannot seem to even get the X3 into pairing mode or get my phone to recognize the system. I have an iPhone 6. I could not find any instructions in the manual at...

  9. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi, My samsung Galaxy Note 3 Bluetooth pairs with my F30 but keeps disconnecting every few minutes. I've also noticed that every time I start the car, I have to "add new device" to pair. The phone doesn't stay in the f30's memory. I don't face this problem with my other car - Honda City. I...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I recently paired my HTC One M7 to my 2009 5 series and I noticed that it didn't sync my contacts. While I was syncing, I accidently selected "no" when it asked to sync my contacts as I was working on something else on my phone. I tried deleting the phone from the car and repairing it, but the...
  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Just got an HTC One via T-Mobile. I tried several times to pair it with the X3, and never got to first base - the HTC never sees the X3 bluetooth. Has anyone successfully paired these two, who might give me a hint as to what I'm doing wrong? What I've tried are various combinations of...
  12. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I love the new Z10 but I can't get it to pair with my 05 645. I go through the sequence of entering a password and confirming on the iDrive and then wait - always get the message - not paired successfully. Anybody have suggestions?
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I am just getting around to trying to pair my iPhone with my X5. I turned on the bluetooth on my phone and it detected my car right away, but when I tried to 'connect', the phone says "make sure the BMW is in range or is turned on"- I was sitting in the running car, so obviously I have an issue...
  14. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    This is a DIY on how to make your own pairing button for a BMW bluetooth module. This is specific to the E85 Z4, but should work for other models with slight changes for which wire to connect to. There is a plethora of information about E46 models and this borrows from that. The gist is that...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2011 335 sedan and just got a Motorola Razr Maxx phone. Unfortunately, when the car's Bluetooth pairs with the phone the names on the address list don't show up--just a bunch of phone numbers followed by entries with brackets [] instead of my contacts' names. I tried using a Bluetooth...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Has anyone been able to pair they're new iPhone 4Gs via bluetooth in their BMW and get connected? My older iPhone was connected flawlessly, however upon updating to OS5, I could not get that device connected also. So now both phones can not connect and get paired in my car. I took a trip to my...
  17. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Anyone know if the Bluetooth Pairing Code is hidden on the X3 anywhere? Bought an '05 in July and would liike to pair my Motorola Cell, but I can't find the password. Any help would be appreciated!! :)
