Since so many technical solutions have been forwarded earlier, i have only some small check out list. try these and if the problem is solved i will be happy.
1. check if the electrical wires connecting to the audio speakers are working properly.
2. you can check where the problem lies by checking the following things
a. see whether the bluetooth module works up with other audio speakers (e.g friend's car speakers)
b. and also the vice versa for the statement above.
c.you can find where the problem lies actually by doing the above two things.
3. check if both the speakers and player are switched on with the bluetooth.
4. when the company installed everything did it work atleast for the first time.
5. if no you have to add the device (speaker) to the player blue tooth when you switch it for the first some times.
if all these dont work you have to contact the company who made the system for you, and will repair it for free if it comes under warranty period.
thanks for using fix ya!

This unit has a seperate audio (mono) output.
You need a ELK800 amplifier and speaker - it will not play through the factory speakers... well it WILL - but it is un amplified - so reall it's NOT LOL
older BMWs without dsp have the telephone wire harness setup such that the telphone speaker signal only goes to the midrange speaker in the driver's door, unamplified. This makes it hard to hear the person yo uare talking to without crawling down into the footwell and at highway speed forget it, no chance of hearing it over even slight road noise.
So this is a simple low cost solution. Newer BMWs or even older ones with DSP wiring, have the telephone speaker dignal wired through the cars amplifier and then sent to all the speakers, so you can hear it fine.
If it is not loud enough - add an additional speaker.
The 1997 does not have phone audio inputs.

As of now the biggest problem for you is SES which is responsible for voice recognition Since you are retrofitting, one bluetooth devise will not respond to two different voices. So first change that module and its picture is given at this webpage: http://www.europeanautosource.com/product_info.php?products_id=306 and picture location is: http://www.europeanautosource.com/images/ses_jumper.jpg.
My instinct tells me that once the SES problem is solved all the feature including sound will start working.............................................................................sodeep

If the mic and speaker DO NOT work, the
issue is most likely the SES jumper plug. Ensure that you
have one installed in your 08/00 build date or higher BMW (some
euro cars may not have this wiring)
If the mic works but the speakers do not it is possible that the issue is the Telephone ON circuit. Telephone ON in cars built prior to 03/02 is in the eject box. Ensure that you have a jumper wire located between pins 11 and 14. If the jumper wire is fine, try another SES jumper plug. I have heard of bad 038 P/N jumper plugs often enough to mention it. Also if you have non-stock Speakers in the front, ensure that the speakers installed were installed correctly. It is possible your car had 4 wire speakers replaced with 2 wire speakers and they left the telephone audio wires disconnected.
