Can I ask a question in this thread as I have a 2005 and can't get my Iphone 4 to pair to my new to me car. I have the SOS button and a sharkfin. My situation is similar but different. I hit the R/T button on the steering wheel and it displays on the radio "Activate Phone". The BT on my phone finds the car BMWXXXX and I enter the passkey. The phone then says Pairing Unsuccessful and that the passcode is correct but the radio isn't ready. So what do I have to do to "ready" the radio or car?
I ordered a BMW scanner 1.40 last week from China, so I might need to wait till the scanner shows up.
Current Vehicles in my stable:
2005 BMW 330i - 111K miles
2005 Mazda Tribute s - 103K miles
1998 Ford Taurus SE - 111K miles
1987 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 - 238K miles
