E46 factory bluetooth not working

Hi all,

Just purchased a 2003 facelift 330ci m sport coupe.

It has he factory nav and built in Bluetooth, however it doesn't work with my iPhone 7.

I can get it into pairing mode and my phone finds the car. The car shows pairing sucededded, but then goes back to pairing mode and disconnects.

Any ideas?

Thanks Matt

Bluetooth of that era was designed for phone calls and not music.

Thanks mark, not looking to stream music, I'm aware that it won't do this but it won't connect to make calls

Bluetooth of that era didn't work.
It wasn't until 2005 they had a TCU that worked for calling.

You need to look at the TCU and get the part number to find out if it is real bt, or the flawed bt that shouldn't be turned on.
