    I hope it's something that simple I mean I don't know how the Bluetooth works in that system is it a separate system from other things in the car it might have its own views but if it's built into the radio and the radios working well then I would think not so much

    That is interesting buddy I don't know how Bluetooth would just disappear I mean did something update to make Bluetooth disappear I don't think so is your radio connected to the internet and can update firmware all by itself or something along those lines wild stuff 169 bucks for Toyota to give me an update and they should be able to tell you with that firmware update what was fixed what will be fixed that should be known issues it's not magical The technical service bulletin should specifically say what this will help with and if you needed at all and that's the paperwork you need to see

    So then in your owners manual it shows how to work and use the Bluetooth or you don't have your users manual have you looked at a user's manual for the car to see briefly just what it says and all of that like I say I wouldn't think an update would take care of much of this because Bluetooth shouldn't just disappear That's hardware and firmware built into the device it can't just vanish

    I'm not paying the dealership anything they wanted $90 $50 $100 whatever it is to read codes I laughed in their face I spent $700 on a dealer tech stream computer from a closed dealer with a big old file on it with every update for every computer for every model of car through 2021 I think so I don't need to get online to update anything unless stuff that comes out after I don't know the 8th month of 21 which will not be covering me I don't have anything that new and don't care to so that's good for me so now every time I need to read codes 7 or 8 times is things paid for itself so they say
