1999 BMW 328i bluetooth

I can't find the instructions to operate my bluetooth. The manual does not explain it, just says it is equipped with it. Does anyone know where I can find the instructions?

Your '99 might be "equipped with bluetooth" which means the car is wired for it, but may not have the module(s) for it. same is true for the 6 disc changer in the trunk on the LH side. its wired for it, but not necessarily has it installed.

call your BMW dealership (parts dept) with your VIN (actually the last 7 numbers is all they should need) and they can tell you if the car is "wired for bluetooth" or actually has bluetooth installed.

Hi R_emmitte.

Yep! There's no instructions. I've 530 series as well. As a matter of fact I kind of like the bluetooth function within BMW designed. If you have the one knob for all access then follow:
1) Press Menu button near bottom of the knob then press down the knob from top to select information.
2) Pull the knob downward.
3) Turn the knob to your right to scroll down and select Bluetooth function.
4) If the setting of Bluetooth is not enable then pull down twice to set it enable to active.
5) Push the knob upward once to Setting location then turn the knob to your left to Phone menu then press down on the knob to select Phone option.
6) This is where you want to pair with your phone. Before selecting pairing new phone make sure your phone is in the search mode otherwise it won't work.
7) Once your phone has been paired then you all set.

Here's how it works.

1) Receiving call: You need to use that one knob and select Accept the call or not (Assuming you have the navigator screen.).
2) Making call: Navigate your phone to any number you wish to call then just press the Send button on your phone then all you have to do is talk normal within your car and you can here your conversation through the car speaker. The car microphone is on the roof by the SOS button or by the rear view mirror.
3) You don't have to press any button when the call is ended by other party.

Hope this answer your question. Please let me know this helps out.

Are you sure the blutooth is active in your car? Contact the local dealer and have them run a "DCS" and confirm the car is fitted with Blutooth. Then go to www.bmwusa.com and check that your phone is apporved to work with the car. Provided nothing is wrong with the car you can then follow the instructions below.

  1. make sure your phone's bluetooth is "always on"
  2. get your phone all the way to the "search screen" and stop
  3. press the "menu button on the radio
  4. press the button below the "phone" in the menu screen of the radio.
  5. press search on your phone to locate the car.
  6. after the phone locates the car press yes to "bond"
  7. the phone/car will now ask for a password, enter 1111 and press enter or ok.
Ifyour passwrd does not work you will have to go to the dealer to get the correct one or you can locate the TCU in the driver's rear inner panel in the trunk and get the number off the unit. It will say "PK XXX"
