Hi All,

Just bought a 2.2 Civic Mk8 EX and i'm trying to pair my phone with the HFT. Going through the process and when the car is searching for a device it doesn't find anything and I am unable to see anything for the Honda HFT on either my iPhone or android.

Tried various resets of devices and clearing the existing setup but nothing seems to help and done the HFT test by holding down the cancel button when starting the car and no issues there either.

Any ideas where to go next? Tried searching posts and nothing directly seems to be the same issue and as I haven't had the car i don't know the history.

Could be that someone has disconnected/removed the BT module as it seems that they sometimes give high battery drain.
Thanks! Any pointers of the best way of checking? or least where to start tracking the module and wiring down

I believe it's under the dash down by the steering wheel somewhere but I don't have your car.
Do a search, there's loads of stuff about it and I'm just off out or I would search for you.
Failing that, wait for someone who knows what they are talking about to pop up.

The old threads I've just scanned with HFT info all have broken pic links :(

So pop the end of the drivers side dash off to reveal the screw holding the under panel in place. Lower the panel under the steering wheel to reveal the HFT module ;)

If it's "just disconnected", it's probably because it has a high parasitic drain and flattens the car battery. It's a known fault and I can't really think of any other reason someone might disconnect it.

So I've taken the trim off and had a look the unit is still there and plugged in so unfortunately not a quick simple fix.

Can you see if it is actually powered or not. Fuse?
Does it not run on the same fuse as the stereo? As this all works fine.

I can get through all the steps of pairing with the HFT it just doesn't find my phone(s) or I can't see the honda hft bluetooth to connect from any of my devices. Not sure how much of this is driven from the bluetooth module or if it's another area within the system.

hello the module is located under the steering wheel you have to remove the plastic and the module and attached to it first open the door on the driver's side there is a small external panel that from the door to detach it and then find a small screw remove it and gently remove the panel under steering and in any case the module consumes energy when the machine is switched off
