    I'm trying to switch on pairing mode in dis as my pairing button in centre consol just doesn't seem to work
    I've tried the 3 second thing with the key as discribed in the handbook probably 100 times it just won't go into pairing mode. Screen in car constantly says "activate phone"



    I'm told I can activate pairing mode in dis but I can't seem to find the right page.
    I can turn bluetooth on and off using dis and inpa but can't find where to activate pairing mode.
    I can see the tcu in list and a quick test shows no faults.

    Anyone know where it might be or am I doing something wrong??

    It's getting very frustrating!!!

    Cheers. Jon

    Hi,

    Pairing button on the central console? What car is it and year please?
    Did you just fit the hardware and did some coding?

    Hi
    It's 2005 x5
    The pairing button is the storage compartment in the centre consol under the armrest, there is also a tray to place and connect a phone,
    I haven't fitted or coded anything.
    I bought the car a couple of weeks ago off my bro in law he said he always had trouble pairing his phone as well but he did manage to it
    And obviously it's not something you need to do that often.
    So I know that it does work. Or did work,
