Hi there!

We have had a 2006 S-Max Titanium X since 2007. It has the DVD based Colour Touchscreen Sat Nav with Bluetooth installed.

This has been working very well since we got it and we have connected all of our phones to it with no problems.

A few days ago my wife received a call on her phone while in the car and only then noticed that it didn't come through the car stereo as it has for the last five years.

On the screen she then noticed that the Phone on-screen button had simply disappeared. Pressing the Phone hard button above the stereo simply mutes the stereo.

Where has our Bluetooth gone and how do we re-enable it?

Any ideas?

cheers
Mark

I would try disconnecting the battery for a while and then reconnecting to see if that resets it.

the bluetooth moduile is fitted behind the glovebox and not actually part of the stereo itself so their may also be a lose connection between the stereo and the moduile since the stereo doesnt know the bluetooth moduile/feature exists recently since its not displaing any of the bluetooth functions.

Hi Guys,

thanks for this. I found the fuses for the radio (not sure if I needed both) and disconnected them for a while.

However, when I plugged them back in, the stereo wanted a PIN code. Should have read the manual! Looked everywhere through all my documentation and could not find it.

Will have to call the dealer today and see where it would have been written. For my other car, I have a little card with it written and it is also written in the front of the service book. But not here!

cheers
Mark

Hi All,

 

apologies for resurrecting an old post.

 

I managed to find the code etc and the bluetooth started working again.

 

However, it has gone again and no amount of pulling fuses will make it work.

 

I took it to my Ford Dealer and they pronounced the bluetooth module dead. They said they tried plugging in a new module and that worked fine.

 

They now want £360 for the new module plus fitting! This seems very steep to me so I want to look at other options.

 

I see there are a number of cheap chinese stereos on eBay that seem to be a straight swap if you have the CD player. Has anyone tried one of these?

 

Of course I don't have the CD player and my Climate Controls are in the stereo. So if I went down the route of changing the stereo, how would I access my climate control?

 

Also does anyone have the model numbers for the stereo and the bluetooth module that I have please? I can't seem to find them anywhere!

 

Many thanks

Mark

The Chinese stereos are utter crap.

 

If you search the smax owners club forum you will find so many tales of woe -including some having caught fire.

 

You can get 2nd hand Bluetooth modules from ebay & scrap yards for about £80.

Agreed.
Look for the serial number on your existing module and search ebay until you find a matching module.
You'll be looking at anything from £40 - £100.
Far cheaper than Ford and you're helping the cute cuddly polar bears by recycling too :P

Guys, still not got this working!

 

Tried to find the module to look at the serial number.

 

Any clues as to where it is or how to get it out. I can't locate it at all!!

 

Many thanks

Mark

Have a look on the s-max owners forum. There are lots of posts & how-to's on there about Bluetooth modules, how to identify which one is right for your car & how to replace them.

Hi there and thanks for this.

 

Are you absolutely sure about this? I finally got the glovebox out last night and the module had written on it: Nokia Type RX-2C 6M2T 19G488 AF

 

Mine is a 2006 Titanium X S-Max.

 

Do you think the 7S7T one will be compatible?

 

Many thanks

Mark

Darn it I signed off on Friday at 12 and have only just seen this (why don't I get email notifications - it is set to send me emails!)

 

I bought one on Sat morning from the 'Bay for £80!

 

I guess I need to stick with that one for now. I will let you know if it doesn't arrive or something.

 

Thanks for the offer though I would have snapped your hand off if I had seen it in time!

 

Many thanks

Mark
