Does anyone know where I can get a carphone operator's manual downloaded (preferably for free!)? I don't seem to have the manual with the car. I have a button that is to do with the carphone that looks like someone speaking on my steering wheel. Also, there seems to be a microphone above my head next to the reading light, and in the armrest between the driver and passengers seats there seems to be a socket but I don't know what it's for! Can anyone tell me how to work it please? Thanks!
Did you click on the links to the manuals? Of course it will not look the same (different attachments for different phones), but it is the same system.
WHat you need to do is read the manual in the section where it talks about pairing your bluetooth phone. If you have the bluetooth system, then it will work. If you are only prewired, then it will not.
So that means that you DO NOT have a bluetooth module installed. Your car is just prewired for one, like most E46's. The socket comes into play when you do install a bluetooth module and a phone cradle.
So where does the module go when you get it? I've taken out the glove box and see several empty slots for storing -there??? It says prewired so I also pulled out the back panels and exposed all kinds of connections waiting to be plugged into somewhere. Where do I get info on those and what they go to?
Thanks - that was verrrra helpful. I was actually hoping that purple connection in the back was an am antenna possibility. My tinted windows are taking out the reception. Think I will fix that first then tackle the bluetooth.
