My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you no longer need help post a simple reply to let me know.

From what you have described here this sounds like a fault with the blue tooth receiver/control unit itself.This can act up/fail internally causing this issue here with it needing to be replaced.I would let the dealer know that the fix they did did not repair this issue and to see if they can check the fault codes first to see if any codes are set then re-diagnose the fault to see if the receiver needs to be replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
