Re: Bluetooth set-up
You are unfortunately the victim of an incompetent dealer, with incompetent salesmen. I know this because I had the exact same problem. I went to 2 different chevy dealers, and was looking at two different 1LT's. The salesman at both places swore on their life that the car had bluetooth in them "because it had the bluetooth button on the steering wheel". Nice thought, but that button with the picture of the head, and the phone, is NOT a friggen bluetooth button. It's a voice activation button, of which, one of the features is bluetooth setup.
Now when I went in there, I knew that 1LT's didn't have the bluetooth (unless the option was specifically added by at the mfg before shipped as an ala cart thing) , and that only 2LT's had them. I kept telling them they were incorrect, but they kept swearing it had it.
At one of the places, which I wound up buying mine from, the guy swore the entire time it had it, and said when you're done, we'll go pair it up before you leave, and I'll show you how. Even in Finance, I had to freaking sign some form saying that I was getting the bluetooth package (don't know what this was about). I even said to the finance lady, you know, you guys are incredible. Everyone says this thing has bluetooth and I refuse to believe it until I see it work because 1LT's do not have it, and it's not listed as an option.
And so, we go out to it after all the paper work is done. And I say, ok show me how it works. "Bluetooth. Pardon? Bluetooth. Pardon?" That went on for like 5 minutes. Then the guy said, ok, well you'll have to bring it into the service dept, because the system is broken.
Here is most likely what is happening, with my knowledge of electronics. The voice activation unit, probably has a couple of 'modules' that can be plugged into it. If the module isn't there, it can't respond to the command, so it says, Pardon? The message at the beginning when it tells you what you can say, is probably canned to handle all cases.
The salesmen today do not understand these cars with all this sophisticated electronics. It's sad. I had the same problem with my Pontiac Grand Prix GXP. The thing has an advanced driver info center, and a heads up display, navigation. They had no clue how to even demo it do me.
Anyway, that's my 5 minutes of venting...
