Honda Civic Bluetooth Not Working

From time to time, your Honda Civic’s Bluetooth may not work. There can be a few issues that are behind this problem. As a general rule, you should first check to be sure that you have Bluetooth turned on.

If the Bluetooth in a Honda Civic is not working, it may be due to the device’s pairing memory being full. To fix this, clear the Bluetooth memory through the car’s audio system settings and attempt to re-pair the device.

The issue might also be with the software of the car’s infotainment system. If it’s outdated, it may not function correctly with newer devices. Check for any available updates for the system and install them. If the problem persists, a factory reset of the system might be necessary, but be aware that this will erase all saved settings.

When it comes to Bluetooth, your Bluetooth may be turned on both your phone and Honda Civic, but no matter how hard you try, it will not pair. This is one of those issues that is so trivial that it becomes frustrating to deal with. The first issue to check is to ensure that your device is, in fact, compatible with your Honda Civic.

If your device is compatible and your Bluetooth is not paired with your Honda Civic, first ensure that your phone or device is fully charged. Even if your device is turned on, a low battery can produce a low signal, making it hard for your Honda Civic to pick it up. The way that Bluetooth works is by utilizing radio waves. If the energy level on your phone isn’t enough, these levels will be too low to pick up.

You may also be facing the issue of where a device that has been previously prepared with your Honda Civic is in range. If that is the case, you need to enter your Honda Civic’s Settings menu and make sure that your device is the device that it is connecting to. You can turn off the Bluetooth settings that pick up devices that are not the device that you are attempting to connect with.

Bluetooth is reliant on the signal from your device. If you are in an area where the signal is low, you might not be able to connect your device to your Honda Cicnic’s Bluetooth. If your Bluetooth picks up the connection as you continue to drive, then it is safe to say that this is the issue. 

If you’ve tried all these methods and are in an area where Bluetooth and cell service are good, perform a reset. On your phone, enter the Settings menu, and find the Bluetooth section, turn it on and off again. Also, delete your Honda Civic from the list of devices that your Bluetooth is connecting to. Reconnect it and check to see if it is working properly.
