Welcome to Just Answer!!!Have you activated the blue tooth on your phone to be discoverable yet ??
I know the vehicle comes with the button on the steering wheel but does the vehicle have the blue tooth option on your vehicle ??
honestly...I cant see any bluetooth logo anywhere in the car...but thought bluetooth was standard in all the 2012 cars. what the passat website says. so why do you have all the handsfree system in the car if it is not bluetooth enabled. this is very puzzling!
It should have it , does the phone show the vehicles blue tooth module when your searching for it ??
no sir. it does not. nothing at all. if you press the phone button on the radio console, it just only mutes the sound of the sytem if you play the radio. infact, went through the manual, and it says that this would happen if the phone sytem is not activated. should send you the chassis number number of the car
Ok here in the U.S the Passat comes standard with the blue tooth which is believed it did world wide , more then likely you just need to have it activated by the dealer by having it recoded but this needs to be done at the dealer because it needs to be done with a factory scan tool . I hope this helps Please dont forget to provide excellent feedback for the time and help provided thank you !!
can I buy the factory scan too myself. What is the cost? pls provide details. thanks.
No you can not purchase the scan tool it is only sold to certified Vw dealers . I hope this heps.Please dont forget to provide excellent feedback for the help provided thank you !!
