Default Bluetooth question

As I am new to the site, I was curious on bluetooth.
I have an 09, but I was not sure that mine came with Bluetooth, or how to get it to work. I tried with the steering wheel controls but it only goes to Onstar not my phone.

If yall could help that would be appreciated.

Thanks

Barrett

2009.5's came with Bluetooth. Does your car have pull out cup holders in the center of the bottom rear seat cushion? Easiest way to tell it's an 09.5.
If not, you don't have Bluetooth

I would say, if the 6 digit VIN number "DOES NOT" start with a 3, you are pretty much out of luck.

No cup holders in the rear.

Just looked at the sixth digit on the vin which is a 5 not a 3.

Thanks for the help..

Now here is another little question can you change the onstar module or is it tied in with something else?

^^^^ Let me try this another way. It would *ONLY* be a 1 or 2 or 3. The last 6 characters of the entire VIN #, are the serial numbers. If the (1st number of that 6) is a 3, that would indicate the car is a 09.5
If that 1st number is a 1 or 2 it would tell me it is an 09. As stated, if you can find a push bar centered an located in the leading edge of the rear seat cushion, that is an additional pop out 2 cup holder, you would then, most likely also have a VIN serial # starting with a 3.

In the "search" function portion of this G8 Board forum, type in the word *Bluetooth* There are a bunch of threads related to this subject. For sure, they will provide you with the most correct P/N, where you might be able to locate one, and whats required to get it to work in your car.

If you push the phone button on the steering wheel, wait for the auto greeting, and say "bluetooth", and it hangs up on you, you don't have bluetooth.
