Hey Michael I just thought I...
Hey Michael
I just thought I would write you to let you know that I stumbled across a forum and one person stated that if you unplug the fuse for the hands free system ( fuses under the hood) for all if 5 seconds and the plug it back in; it will reboot the system and solve the glitch.
I tried this his morning as I hadn't recieved my new module yet.
It worked.
My entire system is back to normal.
Figured you could put this in your book of tricks.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
I was simply trying out my Google app and I asked it about the hands free module and this was what I got.
Have a great weekend.
