Boothtooth Doesn't Seem To Working

Okay, today I picked up the CPO X. Got several things reprogrammed/upgraded. HomeLink is working, Nav OS to 27.1, Nav Maps (NA 2006.2) downloaded/burned and working. So here's the dilema...

X is suppose to have Bluetooth and has a phone cradle in console. First indication that something is wrong is that "Telephone" does not appear in Nav Menu. There no response of any type from the send/receive button in the console or on the steering wheel. There is a white "credit type" card in the owner's manual that has a Bluetooth Pairing Code on it.

Assuming from the buttons next to the handsfree microphone that the X also has BMW Assist. I printed the instructions for BMW Universal Bluetooth Hands-Free System (ULF) [pre 2005], but following those instructions hasn't yeilded in results. Oh yeah, there's always Sirus Radio installed and working (don't know if that has anything to do with it or not)

HELP!!!!!! (But be gentle... I'm still a newbie)

The 2004 X5 came with the Bluetooth system inoperable. In order to make it functional you have to replace the ULF. If your production date is pre-April 2004 then your only option is to install the Visteon ULF (which means you'll lose Assist). If it is post April-2004 then you can install either the Visteon ULF or the Motorola combo Assist/Bluetooth module from a 2005 nor newer vehicle.

A significant number of the 2004 models were shipped with the BT pairing card/code, but without the needed BT module. So, it is likely a hardware issue. Unless you can convince your dealer that the ULF is broken, and you need a new one (that should coincidentally work with your phone), you are stuck with buying one for several hundred dollars cash.

Edit: Wow, Jeff, you are fast on the keyboard!!

My production date is 11/2003. The truck is used (of course) and according to the dealer Bluetooth was working with the previous owner. What should I look for as far as components possilbly already installed or what would I need to buy. Right now, bluetooth nor the Assist seem to be working. And since I knew that you'd lose Assist with the addition of BT, I assumed that maybe the dealer was correct in saying that it was working before. If not the perhaps I can make a stink about it since the BT option was a feature that they pushed in selling the vehicle.

If it's not showing on the nav display then either it's not installed or the module is defective.

RESOLVED. The ULF Module 84.21 6-934552-02 was in deed installed under the Nav DVD Player in the rear compartment on the left side. For some strange reason the ULF was unplugged. Possibly an oversight when the Sirus unit was installed (I don't know). Anyway, I removed the black plastic floor board piece, plugged the ULF back in. Verified "Telephone" on the Nav Menu. Followed the direction to pair the phone. And VOLA!!! after a few second it looks like all 218 entries from my address book were downloaded. Made a couple of test calls. Works like a CHAMP!!!!

Hey Guys, thanks for the insight and quick response. Loving the forum and the truck so far!

Interestingly I also discovered another module labeled "BlitzSafe". Description on back states it's BWM 3 & 5 1996-2003 Apline Changers 601, 602, 630, 634 - BWM/ALP DMX v1. Any idea what this does?
