Question about 2008 Volkswagen Passat Sedan

1 Answer

Bluetooth Compatibility I recently bought passat 2008 with bluetooth installed. However i am very upset that most phones are not compatible with the set in the car. Online it said to contact car dealer to send me a list of compatible mobile phones , but the list they sent was wrong and they wouldnt or couldnt offer more help. I would like to know if such a list exists and if so where can i find it. This is my final attempt of a solution, i hope u can help thanks in advance Gv

Bluetooth is pretty much universal, in that if you have two bluetooth devices and they are paired correctly you should have full connectivity.
If you have not purchased a phone based on the info given by VW, just try and pair a friends phone up to the car, it will do no harm.

The "phone" button quit working on my 2013 F150. Can't sync with my cell phone. Any suggestions?


This may be a problem with the ribbon contact under the steering wheel know as the "clockspring drum" It can also be the switch. Before doing any work make darn sure you disarm the Airbag system, it can go off and badly injure you.

Just bought a 2008 Taurus X Sel. It does not have a manuel. The Radio/CD player has a phone symbol on it. When I press it, it says no phone connected. How do I connect a phone to it?


Most likely that is a Bluetooth connection. You need a phone capable of Bluetooth connection and it should work automatically. If you have a phone with that capability, but it is turned off, then just turn the Bluetooth in your phone on and you should be good to go. If your call phone is not Bluetooth compatible, and you happen to have a friend with a bluetooth capable phone, have your friend sit in the car and give it a shot -- if the phone button still does not work, then there might be some sort of hard-line that you have to connect, but in a late model car like a 2008, it is more likely that you just need a phone that can talk to the car.

All bluetooth connectivity stopped with my 2010 Equinox. Icon will not display and cannot pair any devices.


The picture Im sending you is the information on your vehicle based on what I can get from General motors tech website to inform you if your intstructions in owners manual are unable to correct your situation.There really no way to quick fix the issue.here is the page information; Before reading note there are unavailable sections or links because it is pasted from a General motors page unavailable to public.
You are looking at a trip to General motors unfortunately unless you can find a shop with a tech 2 scan tool.

Circuit/System Description
The Bluetooth ® antenna is a small fixed antenna connected directly to the telematics communication interface control module and is used to send and receive signals from a Bluetooth ® enabled cellular phone. The antenna utilizes no cabling and is not external to the vehicle.
In order to use hands-free calling, the cellular phone must be paired to the vehicle. Up to five devices can be paired to the vehicle at one time, but only one can be connected at any given time. To pair a phone, the customer must know how to operate the Bluetooth ® functionality of their phone. The pairing process must only be done one time for each phone, unless that phone’s information is deleted. For safety reasons, the pairing process is disabled while the vehicle is moving.
Diagnostic Aids • The purpose of this diagnostic is to verify the ability of the telematics communication interface control module to pair to a Bluetooth ® device. • Before performing this test, verify compatibility of the cellular phone(s) the customer is attempting to use with the vehicle. Based on the cellular phone’s service provider and the manufacturer’s implementation of Bluetooth ®, not all phones support all available Bluetooth ® functionality. A vehicle and feature compatibility list will be provided via the GM Bluetooth ® website: http://www.gm.com/vc/bluetooth/ • If the vehicle passes the following tests and a compatible device is being used, the concern may be due to a device malfunction or an incomplete/improper pairing attempt. • A Bluetooth ® test tool or equivalent can also be used to verify the ability of the customers cellular phone(s) to pair with another device.

Circuit/System Verification
  1. Verify DTC B2485 is not set.
  2. → If DTC B2485 is set , refer to DTC B2485
  3. Set up a Bluetooth ® test tool or equivalent.
  4. Ignition ON, perform the discovery/search operation with the test tool. Verify the vehicle appears in the list of available devices.
  5. → If the vehicle is not in the list of available devices, repeat the discovery/search operation. If the vehicle is still not in the list of available devices, replace the K73 telematics communication interface control module.
  6. Follow the instructions provided in the Vehicle Owners Manual for pairing a device. Verify successful pairing with the test tool.
  7. → If pairing is not successful, repeat the pairing process. If pairing is still not successful, replace the K73 telematics communication interface control module.
  8. Refer to Diagnostic Aids.
Repair Instructions Perform the Diagnostic Repair Verification after completing the diagnostic procedure.
