Bluetooth Issue in car

Post by stimpy »

I just bought a 2020 Hyundai Elantra.
Previous car was a 2017 Hyundai Veloster.
Never had any issues with pairing the phone with the car for hands-free.

With this car, every time I shut the car off and open the door, the Bluetooth connection gets lost.
I have to pair it again.

I asked the salesman to try his phone and it worked fine after shutting off the car and restarting, so I believe it's something with my phone.

Not a lot of options to the pairing setup.
And it works fine after I pair it each time I get in the car.

Any possible thoughts?

Do you have Android Auto installed on the phone?

Apparently you have to have to wipe out any other phones saved in the memory, if any.

I do have Android Auto.
Cleared everything out, reset the phone, same thing.
But......surprisingly......I renamed the pairing name for the car from "Elantra" to "Mine" and voila......works....???
