Why is my Honda’s Bluetooth not working?
Technology is a beautiful thing…when it works. A perfect example of this is Bluetooth connectivity in your vehicle. It’s a great feature to have, but when it is dropping calls that’s when things can get frustrating fast. If your vehicle’s Bluetooth is giving you gruff, have no fear. There are a variety of things you can do to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Some of the most common reasons why your Honda’s Bluetooth is not working include interference, a low battery and device incompatibility.

- Make sure your device is fully charged
A device with a low battery will struggle to put out a strong signal to the Bluetooth unit in your Honda. Because Bluetooth relies on radio waves, a device with a poor signal will struggle with a bad connection.
- Is there another device with Bluetooth enabled nearby?
If you are trying to pair your device with Bluetooth and are running into issues, it’s possible you are getting some interference from other devices. This is actually a very common problem simply because Bluetooth uses an unlicensed part of the radio spectrum. To troubleshoot, make sure Bluetooth is turned off on devices in the general vicinity.
- When in doubt, reset
Perhaps one of the best things to do if you are having connection issues is to disconnect everything and start over. To do this, we recommend turning Bluetooth off on your device and removing your device from your Honda’s infotainment connection history. Then turn off and on your Honda and your device. Once your smartphone and Honda (vehicle in accessories mode or engine started) are back on, try connecting again.
- Is Bluetooth connectivity bad where you are?
Sometimes the interference could be due to where you are in the city or from a device inside the vehicle that has Bluetooth enabled. If you have tried everything and are still having trouble, you may want to drive a few blocks away from where you are and try connecting again.
