for anyone checking, I just swapped in an 06 vintage TCU into my 04 which had a TCU/Assist but no BT. No coding, no issues, straight plug and play. The only thing I dont know is which mic I have in the headliner, so I still need to look and see.

Hi Brian
Whila I am still waiting for my navcoder cable, I checked the eject box switch and it is working up to a small pcb in the eject box.
If I press the button, does it just simply pull a pin of the ULF to the GND?

Yes, all the pairing button on the eject box does is pull ULF pin 32 (I think) to ground. Verify the correct pin on the 54-pin ULF plug, but that is all it does.

hello guys,

i would like to have bluetooth at my 06/2002 Euro E46 and was searching for information.

what i found out is: i should have the second generation phone wiring as my car is produced later than 03/2002 and i have BIT2 phone.

so it should be plug&play to buy a ULF and use it instead of the BIT2 hardware.

but, i came across that i already have a bluetooth antenna under the ash tray as my car also has bmw assist.

doesnīt this mean that my car already has a TCU?

galaxy s2 couldnīt find it, should it?

am i right, that i could buy a GSM TCU with bluetooth support (which p/n is the first with bluetooth?) and just change the tcu? do i have to unmount the BIT2 completely?

just to be more precise, i will add the options list from my car:

Quote:
SA601 Analog TV
SA609 Navigation system Professional
SA612 BMW assist
SA620 speech input system
SA630 Car phone with cordless receiver (BIT2)
SA672 CD changer
SA674 Hi-Fi system Harman Kardon
any advice is highly appreciated

Just chuck in a late model TCU and you are good to go. I think they stopped making them in 2007 and the e83 and e85 shipped the last. Actually they were early hardware with new software (remanufactured)

I'm not very familiar with the BIT2 system, but doesn't it use bluetooth to talk to your cordless headset?
If that's the case, hopefully your bluetooth antenna cable (FAKRA style) will plug into the bluetooth connection on the new TCU. If not, you may need to remove the plastic casing around the FAKRA connector in order for it to plug into the TCU.

Well, it turns out to be a little bit more complicated then i thought...

plugged the tcu instead of the bit2 and blowed fuse #7

i unplugged the SES and the BIT2 phone and tried a new fuse: didnīt blow #7, but unfortunally the tcu wonīt be shown in inpa and dissapeared in the widescreen.

i donīt know if the tcu is blown or the wiring is still faulty

Fuse no. 7 actualy for the MKiv system. I mean without it u wil turn off every thing related to the mkiv. I had it burned a couple of times while i was installing my tcu. Just make sure to disconnect the eject box totaly. And 4 the piaring button i didnt install also.
