My Bluetooth on my Nissan Titan is hit or miss. Sometimes it will connect and work properly but the other half it won't connect at all. when I try and connect it manually it will just sit on the please wait menu indefinitely. I have to end up turning my car off and back on hoping the Bluetooth will connect. Has anyone had this issue and if so have you had it resolved? I took it into Nissan and they tried to tell me it was an apple software issue but it does the same thing on android phones. I am going to take it back in and have them look at it again because my phone has gone through multiple updates and the vehicle is still having the same issue. Thanks!

Have had the same issue and took me a while to figure it out. In order for it to connect you need to keep pressing the “aux” button until it’s on the screen for your Bluetooth and not for the cable/aux input. Hope this helps

If my Bluetooth was able to be connected then that would work but it won’t even connect to my car when I first turn the vehicle on.

You're not crazy and it's not your phone. I've been duking it out with Nissan Techline for over a year now about this exact issue. They're not that difficult necessarily I just live 40 miles from the nearest dealership and can't just take off work whenever I feel like it plus they have ONE tech that can do the full diagnostic and he is only there M-F 8-5 same as my work hours.

My logic on it is this: this is a $3500 component that is not functioning as intended that has already been replaced once with no improvement. Now we're looking at replacing number 2. That's $7000 in parts alone (!) not including the time that I've taken off work, the technician's billable hours, the loss of use of this feature on my radio, etc. If I had sunk $7000 in parts into ANY other part of this vehicle they'd be buying it back. Not to mention the fact that I've got a $7 Bluetooth speaker at my house that my wife found in the TOY section at Walmart and it connects EVERY time without hesitation. And this $3500 pile of Buffalo chips in my dash is hit or miss. Unbelievable.

Here's what's transpired so far: Had it happen on the first radio in my truck. Took it in. Dealership confirmed that it wasn't connecting and wasn't my phone. Replacement ordered. New radio was fine for about 3 months. Then it started to randomly fail to connect and always with the "please wait" screen under Bluetooth settings. Got to be nearly every other time I turned on my truck. I got Nissan Techline involved. They said that it was my phone because the service writer wrote it up as "Bluetooth will not connect, have to turn on and off to get it to work" So naturally the technician connected his phone to the radio (if he could get to the screen then it wasn't glitching!!) and then started turning his Bluetooth off and on ON HIS PHONE. So, lesson learned. I made sure to be able to talk to the tech this time. My truck is actually there now getting aaaaaaall of the stuff done that I've been putting off.

I was able to show the tech that the radio was unresponsive and that it wasn't my phone. I was also able to explain to him that it was tied to the BOOT procedure and not to the Bluetooth connection protocols. I also was explicit in telling him that it can be fixed by POWER-CYCLING the radio. There's a shortcut to turn off the radio without killing the truck that I use but it's still annoying. He asked me, "Oh so you don't even have to start the truck for this to happen???" "No. That's what I've been trying to tell you through the service writer! I had to come here in person to make sure that you understand EXACTLY what it's doing." He responded, "Yeah, I see what you were talking about now! Your radio is all jacked up!"

Fingers crossed that they upgrade me or I'm going to be screaming bloody murder until Nissan pays for an aftermarket system! They discontinued this radio for a reason!

They got some high-level regional specialist engineer to review it and replaced it with a new one. An actual NEW radio. The first replacement was a "refurbished" unit. So far so good, but I still see an aftermarket system in my future.
