Adding a Bluetooth Module

Hi there!
I just got my 2009 LT1. Unfortunately it doesn't have Bluetooth, but it is something I really want to add. I was wondering if it is possible to buy a Bluetooth module that comes from a wrecked LTZ and just plug it into my car? Does anyone know if that will work?
Thank you!

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

I am also very interested in adding a bluetooth module to my 1LT Traverse.

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

very interesting question.
I wonder if any more software updates would have to be done since the vehicles radio gets involved with playing the sound.

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

I believe the bluetooth module is just a different on-star box that you would need to install. I'm not sure how you would associate a different on-star S/N with your car. It doesn't actually play through your radio, but it does play through your speakers. Do you have radio controls on your steering wheel? You need them. FWIW, the bluetooth works very well. I have it in my '09 Acadia. I used it for a couple of weeks, but installed an after market navigation system with bluetooth, so I no longer use it. You can't download your mobile phone's phonebook to it, but because you are teaching the names, the voice recognition is excellent. All in all I thought the implementation was very good, and extremely easy to use.

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

I do have radio controls on the stearing wheel. That confused my sales rep in telling me that I had the Bluetooth option on my 1LT Traverse.

I called the service dept. at my dealer and the guy was clueless. I had some doubt about his knowledge when he was not even able to tell me the difference between a 1LT, a 2LT and a LTZ Traverse.

Anyway, if it is a question of only replacing a module, then it should not be difficult and I should be able to do it myself.

I only need to know which module it is.

Daniel.

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

I hate it when the salesmen dont know the product theyre selling.
Thats why I do my own research on the vehicles.
Sometimes I ask a questions that I already know the answer to... that gives me a good idea of his knowledge

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

Still very good questions without answers!! I just bought a 2010 LT1 without OnStar or, apparently, Bluetooth! Do I have to have OnStar to add Bluetooth capability?? I do have the sterring wheel controls. The one I thought was for Bluetooth only mutes the radio!!!!! I press it (right side of steering wheel, and the radio mutes - it does not "say" anything!!

I would REALLY appreciate some technical help with this!!

Thanks!

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

It sounds like you bought an EX-Rental Traverse.
Vehicles built for rental companies (and govt) will usually have Onstar, Bluetooth, XM deleted when built.
Look in your glovebox for these codes on the decal

U2J XM Radio, delete 1 - Requires Fleet or Government order types. Requires (UE0) OnStar delete.

UE0 OnStar, delete 1 - Requires Fleet or Government type orders only. Whenever selected (U2J) must be included to delete (U2K) XM Radio. Not available with (ZQ2) Fleet Driver Convenience Package or (PDC) Bluetooth connectivity for phone.
2 - Requires Fleet or Government type orders only. Whenever selected (U2J) must be included to delete (U2K) XM Radio. Not available with (PDD) Personal Connectivity Package.


chances are you are missing this code from your decal
PDC -NEW! Bluetooth Connectivity for Phone, includes(UPF) Bluetooth for phone and (NP5) leather-wrappedsteering wheel with redundant audio controls
1 - Not available with Fleet or Government order types.Requires (UE1) OnStar.

The easiest option is probably to get the PARROT bluetooth kit-- someone on here has this system.

Re: Adding a Bluetooth Module

Dear Kemosabe,

I have looked at the OnStar site. There is a new product that is called OnStar FMV (For My Vehicle). On this site you can find out if this product is compatible with your vehicle. Here is the link to see if your vehicle is compatible with this: http://www.onstar.com/web/fmv/vehicl...bility?panel=1

If the above link does not work, you just have to visit www.onstar.com. The home page has this product information that you can click on and get to the page to find out if your vehicle is on this list.
