  1. Bluetooth issue with car music playing car DS5. All above tryed. Connection OK no sound. Also the control buttons in the car don’t operate.
    When I go to Bluetooth settings on my note 9 and tap the setting button on my car connection. I got 2 options, 1) call 2) audio.
    Set audio settings off, wait 10s and switch it on solves the problem. I need to do it every time again, which is pretty annoying.

  2. I have a Mi A2 lite and a BMW 320. They paired correctly until I upgrade my phone whit android 9. Now they pair but when I make or receive a phone call, my phone restarts. Any suggestion? Ty

  3. I’ve done all methods you explain and I continue with problems in my bluetooth connection in my Samsung galaxy s9+

  4. I can not make or receive calls on the Hyundai i40 Bluetooth car, I tried the 4th method, but still without success.

  5. I tried all your 5 ways, but the problem was not solved. Phone Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite with Android One, OS Android 9.0, car – Toyota Corolla 2016. The pairing is without problems. But incoming and outgoing calls are not broadcast on the car speakers without additional pressing the keys of the phone and the car. Music is broadcast without problems. What do you advise?
    Maybe I need to change the bluetooth profile instead of the current A2DP?
    There were no problems for previous OS Android 8.1

  6. Hello
    Problem not solved with above scenarios. Samsung Galaxy S8+ and Jaguar FPACE, connection is established but drops two or three times every minute, and after 3 to 5 seconds returns.
    State after 01 March PIE update.

  7. Great suggestions, thank you. I have an addl issue: Using Nokia 9 Pureview Android One Pie. Everytime when Galaxy Gear s3 watch disconnects (out of range), it does not auto-reconnect. When I look at Bluetooth devices it shows “Currently connected Gear S3 (0AE0) but when I click on this device, “CONNECT” is available – I need to tap it to reconnect to the Galaxy Gear s3 watch. I wonder what can be done, if anything, to eliminate this step.
    Any brilliant minds/solutions?

  8. I cannot connect my bluetooth to my 2016 Civic anymore. I was connected a few days ago and then again today except I couldn’t connect via audio. When I click on bluetooth and then audio to turn it on ot switches right back to off.

  9. I don’t have Pie…I have an LG V20. Until recently it worked fine with my 2014 Hyundai. Now I can use Bluetooth for everything but phone calls. I tried every trick, and BTW there were no phone updates, it just stopped letting me answer calls one day.

    • Remove the Bluetooth paired you have troubled from your LG V20 list and restart your phone. Also, delete paired from your car’s list. Now added it again and try to connect with your car. I hope it will work for you.

  10. Change avrcp from 1.4 to 1.3

    In developer option.

    My problem solved
