My Ride: 06 330cic ZHP
Please help me find my Bluetooth!

Hello all,
I just purchased an 06 330ci ZHP vert. I've owned an E46 before, but had replaced the receiver with a digital media receiver myself.

What I know:
-It has the stock Harmon Kardon audio.
-The previous owner was aware of (but never used) a older Silverlite/Dice Duo 100 ipod connector that had been installed in the glovebox by the original owner.

Last night out of curiosity I pulled up my bluetooth settings on my phone and lo and behold a new device appeared at the bottom: BMW40888. It connected but asked for a pin, which I do not have.

I have emailed the PO, but I don't think he knew much about the audio system.

Does anyone know what this Bluetooth connection might be? How I might find the pin?

Thanks!

Well I did a little more investigating and it looks as if I have the factory Bluetooth phone module. Now I just have to uncover it and find the passkey code.

If you have NCSExpert setup, you can download and use navcoder beta to discover the pin instead of yanking the modul out to read the pin.

Check the manual? There should be one for the sound system? And maybe somewhere is the pin?

Can't trust the sticker, bc they get lost (gifs card was missing in her car), and also because the module may have been changed in the past. I have an 05 TCU, (04 is on the shelf) but the documentation is for the 04.

On verts, the Bluetooth module is located behind the gray lining on the forward driver's side of the trunk. Hopefully, there is a sticker on the module that has your passkey code.
