V36 Bluetooth audio connection keeps disconnecting

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I've successfully paired my iPhone 6S to my 2007 V36 Skyline.

It's worked well for years, although every now and then I wipe/reinstall iOS on my phone and have to do the painful pairing procedure again.

It's paired, but problem is it keeps randomly disconnecting.  In the past I solved this by doing a fresh iOS install on my phone and pairing it again, but this time the problem persists.  I haven't noticed any pattern as to why it drops out, and I have to keep reconnected it by switching to radio then back to 'disc' (bluetooth) again.  It's really annoying when I'm going on a long drive, it can happen as much as every 3-5 minutes or so.

Any idea why this happens and how to fix it?

Thanks!

Hi. I can't offer you any joy but say that the bluetooth phone connection has always been dodgy with my iPhone 7 in my 2013 Skyline Cross-over. Further, the music tags reported on the console screen never displayed correctly either. Only way I could get everything working properly was to directly attach the phone via a USB cable - then all good. 

But I don't know if your 2007 V36 offers a USB port. My 2015 coupe didn't.

Nah, unfortunately not.  It has a compact flash card reader (to sync song names) and AV input for video display, but no USB input.

Have you tried a non-Apple phone? Or a Aux→Bluetooth transmitter (for testing purposes, not as a solution).

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone had any luck fixing this issue? Im having the same issue on my 2009 Skyline Crossover, maybe not as severe as some though. Mine drops out, and reconnects by itself around once every 10 mins, although sometimes my music will start to stutter for a minute straight, but this is rare. Still yet to try a non iphone though.

 

Edit: also have the issue that the screen will show whats playing once it connects, then the screen freezes and doesn't update, and eventually goes blank even though something is still playing.

I lived with it for a long time, but have recently fixed it.

All I did was unpair and re-pair the phone again and my issues went away.  It does work slightly different now, I'm only using the audio streaming (Spotify, YouTube, Podcasts, etc) but not bluetooth for calls (I just use the iPhone speaker for that). 

Seems to work much better just like this.

Hmmm maybe I should give that a try, I seem to remember there was a setting for audio and phone separately, is that correct?

For the moment I gave in and started using a USB cord instead, which of course works really well but I run into the problem that theres a warning message over the top of the info area on the screen that says something about no audio files found. Which is clearly wrong as its displaying whats playing on the screen behind it haha.

Yes, there are two settings - don't ask me where they are though!  I use a translator app on my phone.  Phone via speaker seems fine really.  It may actually work again via the car audio but I haven't tested it.  Overall it works better like this, i.e. when I used to use Siri it would pause and flick over to the car's audio and was clunky, but just for music it's a smoother experience.
