2012 Traverse LT1 FWD - Lt1 but no bluetooth or rearview camera

I just bought a used 2012 Chevy Traverse LT1 FWD and I wanted to see if anyone could clarify the following questions.

It has the phone buttons on the steering wheel and I also went onto Chevy sites and it said Bluetooth was standard on these vehicles but it seems this vehicle doesn't have the bluetooth capablitlies. When I press on the phone button all it does it muted the stereo. This is the first traverse I've ever owned so I am a bit confused! I also notices on Chevy's website that these vehicles also coming with a rearview camera as standard, i think i read somewhere that the rearview camera is on the rear view mirror. I looked all over for the rearview camera in the back of the vehicle and all i see our the sensors and no camera where it should be. Also looked for wires going to the rearview mirror for any indication of a possible camera and nothing!! Could I have bought a LT1 which didn't have these options installed?

All i know for a fact is that this vehicle was a rental before and if I look it is car fax report is listed both the bluetooth and rearview camera as options on it. So I am confused. Can anyone help out and clear this up for me. Like I said is it possible I have a LT1 without this options or maybe as far as the bluetooth the factory stereo which came with the vehicle is not capable of the bluetooth eventhough the buttons are on the steering wheel. Maybe it is a matter of installing a different oem stereo.

Thanks beforehand to all whom responds.

as soon as I read that it was missing Bluetooth-- I thought... Must be a prior rental...

Re: 2012 Traverse LT1 FWD - Lt1 but no bluetooth or rearview camera

having the buttons- does not guarantee BT. (Ive read of many salesmen thinking it does because of the buttons being there).

The camera- is not standard on the 1LT. It is an available option. (just bought a 2012 LT1 recently and we looked for a unit WITH a camera. Not all LT1's came with it.

Ill look up more info on the BT tomm-- im having problems getting a file...

Re: 2012 Traverse LT1 FWD - Lt1 but no bluetooth or rearview camera

I wonder if rental companies just disable the bluetooth. Can anyone tell me where the bluetooth mndules is located? Maybe all i have to do is reconnect it. Or maybe it never came with it ..

Ask your dealer to pull the build sheet on your vehicle and look to see that the vehicle had it ordered from the factory. This will also show all the options on your vehicle. Also, did you review the Driver Information Center (DIC) to verify that the Parking Assist was turned on? There might be a prompt for the BT there also, not sure. Some rental companies have the ability to delete equipment that would otherwise be standard if you were ordering it from the factory.

Re: 2012 Traverse LT1 FWD - Lt1 but no bluetooth or rearview camera

You said you press the button and it mutes only. you pressing and releasing?
To make calls/BT you have to hold it down until you hear the voice prompt.

BUT...........



Open your glove box and look at the option decal.
Look for these codes... UPF, UE0, U2J, UVC, DD8

For 2012-
Bluetooth is shown as being PART of the TRIM Levels LT1, LT2, and LTZ--- so its included.... EXCEPT....
when UE0 is ordered.... which is ONSTAR delete... which is a FLEET or Government option code.

#2 is referenced for the LT1.

UPF-
UPF Bluetooth for phone, personal cell phone connectivity to
vehicle audio system, includes (NP5) leather-wrapped
steering wheel with redundant audio controls
1 - Included with (PDC) Bluetooth Connectivity for Phone.
Not available with (UE0) OnStar delete.
2 - Not available with (UE0) OnStar delete.


Under LT1- it references # 2....
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 (PDC) Bluetooth Connectivity
for Phone.
2 - Requires Fleet or Government type orders only.


Also- Look for U2J

SiriusXM Satellite Radio, delete
1 - Requires Fleet or Government order types. Requires
(UE0) OnStar delete.
Whenever selected (U2J) must be included to delete (U2K)

Also if your vehicle came with the rear view camera.. it will have the Dimming OUTSIDE mirror. You can tell its a dimming mirror because the glass has a black plastic border around the glass. On the 1LT- this mirror appears only if the vehicle came with the camera. If no camera-- you have a normal mirror. Non dimming. The 2LT anfd LTZ shows this as standard..

DD8
Mirror, inside rearview auto-dimming
1 - Included and only available with (UVC) rearview camera
system. (on LT1).



On the LT1- it shows the Rear Vision Camera is Available on the trim.. but not standard.

UVC-

Rear Vision Camera, integrated into inside auto-dimming
rearview mirror

RB you beat me to the punch!

I had just looked up the codes

Of course yours was much more detailed then what I was going to post


Don't forget that a phone has to be "paired" with the system before it will work.
However like RB said push and hold - then it should say - "say a command" if I remember correctly.

Read the manual and it will tell you what you need to know.

Re: 2012 Traverse LT1 FWD - Lt1 but no bluetooth or rearview camera

yeah- im aware it was a prior rental..

though im surprissed Carfax showed that you 'should' have BT and camera..
unless they simply throw that in based on it being a 1LT.

If youre missing Onstar burrons on mirror-- that pretty much means BT will be out.

How did things go when you got home last night? Have you contacted the dealership about this yet?
