Voice recognition help

I have just got a voice recognition module but cannot find the blue connector in by the sat nav/cd player. I have got a UK 05 X5 with sat nav and bluetooth. I have looked at the how to article and there is a spare blue connector but it is towards the rear and much 'squarer' than the one in the picture or to fit the module. I tried to check further up behind the side cover but cannot get it away much. I took one of the plastic things off the boot (Trunk) floor but although can get to a lot of wires cannot see any spare connectors.

Any ideas?

John

I don't know it the UK 05 X5 is any different than mine but it was right in front of me when I looked for it. Remove the drivers side panel in the back (or boot as you brits call it) where the CD changer goes . If you have Navi look behind it on the bottom of the shelf and you will find a blue connector with a black jumper connected to it. At first the jumper looks like wires going to something else but they are only going in and out. You gotta take that jumper out. (key off of course) and plug that blue connector into the voice module. If it was a snake I would have been bitten a half a dozen time.

So I took the whole back end of the car to bits (well what I could easily) and could not find a connector. Does anyone know of other places where it might be hidden. I could not get the boot (trunk) side panel off but got a mirror and looked behing it but could not see a connector. I had the sat nav, cd changer and assist module out but still nothing.

If that is true then it bloody well sucks since I have been thinking about installing the voice recognition module on mine as well.

What year X5 do you have? If you have the Assist/Bluetooth combo you should be able to connect at Voice Recognition module.

Mine was located right behind this stuff on the bottom.

HI again

I have a sept 05 model.
I have found this on the web
http://www.advancedautovations.com/e530402.html
which implies you cannot have both voice and assist. My assist does not work anyway it says "problem with phone".

I took the assist module out to check the connector just to see but it was different (not the blue one) so I do not seem to have blue one at all.

John

You might want to look again. Best place to find the Blue plug is BEHIND the CD changer. The location is right in the back there. The 05 has the Universal II phone wiring harness, so anyone telling you that there is no SES wiring is wrong.




Here is how to get into that area
