Default 2011 Impala LT bluetooth question

I just bought a 2011 Impala LT it has the onstar and xm radio but doesn't seem to be able to do bluetooth with my phone. Is there anyway to hook up this feature and what is the cost or trick?

Thanks
Jack

Hey Jack,

I have a 2010 Impala. First, make sure your phone is bluetooth, which it should be these days. If you go through the set-up in the owner's manual it should connect with your cell phone. You can also check the devices in your cell phone menu to ensure the bluetooth is enabled to sync with another device, in this case, your car. Meaning that, the cell phone has to be in bluetooth enable mode. I went step-by-step from the owner's manual and mine connected with no problems.

Hope this helps,
Rick

It sounds like the vehicle did not come equipped with the "Bluetooth for phone" option. This has been discussed many times but I have not yet come across an official way to retrofit the option. You can probably swap in the OnStar hardware out of a donor vehicle that came with the option but then you won't be able to subscribe to OnStar due to wrong VIN association.

Try this out. Have been using this since I bought my 2010 Impala. Works fabulously.

You can go to the dealer from where you have purchased and ask him how to operate it. He will definitely help you.

If You have a phone button on your steering wheel, press and hold the button till a phone symbol appears on the stereo (Radio) and when it prompts say "Bluetooth". I have a 2011 Impala LT and have just set mine up.
