Welcome to Just Answer My name is***** here to help you with your problem. Unfortunately we see this alot in this model. The bluetooth (HFL) Unit in the back of the console Has failed. It is not hard to replace If you want to do it yourself or if you have a shop replace it the labor is not that much. However no matter if you replace it or not it should be unplugged . When these fail like this they have a habit of draining the battery when the car sits. I can give you instructions on disconnecting it and the part number of the replacement unit If you post back the vin number of the vehicle .
