Bluetooth Pairing Issue

So I just got a Pioneer AVH-4000NEX and a new Viper alarm installed and I'm having this maddening issue. Before installation, I never removed my phone from the stock radio bluetooth list and now my phone is getting raped with bluetooth pairing requests.

I can't access the menu to remove my phone and it's causing TONS of notifications on my phone and randomly causing my music to pause itself (as a result I believe).

I'm afraid to disconnect the battery because I don't want my alarm to go off... gah how do I reset or get to this bluetooth module??

Does the bluetooth module even need to be plugged in?



PS: My bluetooth steering wheel controls ARE working with the new headunit

You can block a BT device in your phone BT configuration list. It will not be reported again.

Nope, this is not an option on my Android phone.

Can you point to me where this option is?

Ok, Android does not seem to have block feature (I've used it in Nokias), so you may try to connect an old phone or any other bluetooth device you don't usually use in the car to that handfree module. Now, when you unpair your phone from the module and turn off BT visibility you shouldn't get any more notifications.

Not 100% sure tho.

I can't access the menus for the stock bluetooth module and as a result cannot pair to another device. The bluetooth in the Civic can also pair to several devices so I don't know if this would be a solution anyway.

The only thing I could think to do is call this installer back and get him to reset this crap, or change my Bluetooth MAC Address.

I spent about 2 hours last night looking for a way to either spoof or adjust my bluetooth MAC permanently and I have NOT been able to find a way to do it (I'm rooted and have root access). You can spoof your WiFi MAC all day long, but not the bluetooth ugh

You don't need to touch the car module. you just hook it up to some other BT device you don't usually keep in the car so it should forget your phone as the last thing it saw and try to connect to.

If this didn't work, then you have one kosher solution left: pair the phone with the car module, go to bluetooth device list in the phone, select the paired car module and untick all connection profiles it has ticked there.

Thank you for trying to help, I do appreciate it.

The bluetooth module in the car is "invisible" to my device despite it's attempts to pair with my phone. I can search for it all day long and it will never show up. I can't pair a device to it if the module cannot be seen.

If the module WAS visible then I would need the stock radio to verify the pairing process (otherwise the module would reject any request that's incoming).

So there's no way of completing the pairing process from the phone or any other BT device?

Unplug the module from the car then, if you find it. Should be in an accessible location.

I think that may be the only solution apart from disconnecting my car battery for a bit and hoping that the bluetooth module forgets my phone.

I don't think it does. The configurations are usually stored in flash memory.

Installer say's hell pull the radio out, unpair it manually and put it back together for $40. I guess it's not a bad deal, I should have remembered to unpair!
