Customer Question

My Friend has just got a 2008 mondeo, I have tried to link her Iphone via Blue tooth, but it will not work.
I can go through the menu get to the part where its "searching" but the phone does not detect it. The phone does detect my Bluetooth ear piece and I have tried a different phone, still nothing any ideas??

I have not tried that as I am trying to pair the phone via Bluetooth??

Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.
The reason I ask is the vehicle may not have the Bluetooth voice control function fitted
Do you have the registration number so I can check the setup of the added extras fitted

Thanks back to me, but I dont understand, the blue tooth logo is there on the screen interface you press it it goes to the screen it gives you the option to pair with the phone, it goes to a state "ready" and then you press pair and it says "searching"

if it did not have the function that would not be there and all the steps to get to it.

Its not the Bluetooth voice control I am trying to set up, its pairing with an iphone??



Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.
Andy thanks
You mention the interface shows Bluetooth icon
What unit is fitted to your Mondeo
As Iam suspecting someone may have fitted a retro unit to this vehicle
In most cases these rarely work as the systems aren't connected on the can bus (data network the modules share abd talk to each other )
As this doesn't have Bluetooth voice control from the factory
If it did it would have a voice button in the indicator stalk
Kind regards ***** *****
