HFT Bluetooth Issues Fixed
Long story short my Bluetooth was working fine up until a few months ago. then all of a sudden nothing, nothing happened when i pressed the HFT button, not even a beep. I of course messed with it and got it to recognise and pair and then stopped working again, scoured all over to find fixes other than 2nd hand or brand new.
looked at all the fuses
The wires in the connection and further up
clean dry area for a few weeks etc...
Finally today i bought myself some WD-40 Specialist Contact Cleaner - Took everything apart, sprayed generously all over both circuit boards and contacts including the connector in the car. Let it dry and gave it a clean over with a micro fibre cloth to remove scum like deposits.
and WALA it works perfectly, connected fine and works like it used to - Such a simple and easy fix i wish I did months ago and for less than £10 and maybe 15 minutes work.
