Bluetooth phone icon stuck on and radio won't work

10

Asked by Mar 05, 2015 at 09:59 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was making a phone call with the bluetooth feature.  The phone icon appeared but the
call did not go through the car.  The phone icon stayed on the radio display and won't go
away.  Because of this the radio won't work.  I tried turning the car off, pressing the hand
up button on the steering wheel, etc.  Nothing has worked.  Any help would be
appreciated.

Have you turned your bluetooth off on your phone?And if so,remove the radio fuse from the fuse box,then replace it,should reset.

Thank you for the suggestions. I had tried turning the bluetooth off. I just tried removing the radio fuse. It made the phone icon disappear while the fuse was out but as soon as I replaced it the phone icon returned and it is still stuck on there and the radio won't work. For the heck of it I also tried removing the XM radio fuse to no avail.

Sound,s like the stereo is on the blink,meaning bad,but by removing fuse only,did not kill total power to it,try this,overnight,remove key from car,remove positive cable from battery,leave off for a while,or over nite,this will fix it if it can be fixed.

Thanks for the advice. I wasn't comfortable with my skills in removing the positive cable. Unfortunately, when I got up this morning my battery was dead, presumably because the bluetooth ran all night. AAA just gave me a jump and the icon is gone. If I had a few more skills, your idea would have fixed my problem. Thanks for the advice. If this ever happens again, I will definitely find someone to help me with the battery.

On a 2015 Chevy Equinox. The radio will not change channels , Bluetooth not working and backup camera is not working either. What can I do to get this fixed?

On a 2002 Chevy 1500 pickup. 4wd 5.3 engine. I had the knock sensors replaced. But , it is still throwing a code to knock sensor not working? what is wrong?
