E53 Bluetooth Issues

Folks, I picked up an 05 X5 with Bluetooth and BMW assist a few weeks back but cannot get the Bluetooth to work. The screen only ever says activate phone. I've tried all the pairing methods documented online, but to no avail.

I tried pairing through my Intravee but again no joy. Turning the module off and on via INPA doesn't kick start it either, and I don't see a specific pair option there. There are no fault codes in INPA for it either.

Is there any other methods I've overlooked? Can DIS be used to activate/pair the module? I have a copy of it but have never used it so don't know where to start.

I would expect if the module was goosed it would've thrown up a fault code in INPA, but is that not necessarily the case?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Quicksilver will become famous soon enough
Do you have the passkey? Notice the instructions require a pass key. Have it ready when you start the process. http://www.xoutpost.com/articles/all...tooth-ulf.html

Pass key is the last 5 numbers of the vin isn't it? So no secret there.

Are you sure you have the Bluetooth module?

if you cant activate pair, with the button or the intravee then i'd say you ulf is faulty.

You do have a ulf and not a TCU right?

ok, then the intravee wont be able to help, pairing happens in the first 30seconds of ignition on. (do the search when you first jump in).

Just got a June 2005 UK spec X5 and having the same problem trying to get the Bluetooth pairing... Car came with TCU unit.

I am however unable to find the Bluetooth enthenna on the top of the Nav drive (left rear)

My 2003 e46 M3 however was retrofitted with ULF module and works fine...
