    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    I bought the BlueStar PnP for my '02 STS and it works. But, the LED backlight for the mirror buttons won't turn off. Any ideas? I sent an email to costar tech support but haven't received an answer yet. I want to fix this ASAP.

    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    I installed the BlueStar PnP on my car and it works but my mirror button backlight stays on constantly. I ohmed out the module and there was no short. The backlight stayed on all night. Luckily hasn't drained my battery. Anybody have any ideas?

    Found a guy on Trailvoy forum that helped with the additional steering wheel commands, but he only had the talking mouth, no end button.

    My post for help in the regional section went unanswered.

    Sorry for the delayed response, been out of town for a while.

    I thought my BlueSTAR was doing the same thing. It turned out that the module stays on for a few minutes after the last door is closed, and turns on as soon as the car wakes up (remote unlock or door open). I thought the light was staying on all the time, but it actually just takes a while to go off and instantly lights up when you get ready to get in the car. Go out and look through the window without pressing any buttons on the remote or the door handle after the car has sat for a while. You will probably notice the light is off.

    This might be the car's Battery Guard is turning off the power to everything in the car. You'll also notice it if you leave the interior lights on or leave the trunk open. After about 10 minutes, the car will turn all electricity in the car off in order to save the battery.

    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    I've done all those things. I approached it without unlocking it and the lights were on. I sat in the car with it locked and with nothing on and key out of the ignition (boring as heck too) with no change. It is alright though CoStar responded and said the first couple of PnP units they made had this defect and that they would gladly replace. These guys are great customer service reps.

    Agreed. They have great customer service. I had a low volume issue, and it was repaired quickly. Now, I have a new problem. I recently bought an iPhone and sadly the iPhone doesn't appear to be compatible with the Motorola HF850 that the BlueSTAR uses. Anyone here using the iPhone with their BlueSTAR?

    I recently bought two PNP units for a 2003 and 2005 Escalade. Products work perfectly as advertised. Also, I contacted Chris about a problem that I created during installation and all I can say is the custom service and Chris are the best. Love the product and love the company....

    Well, I'm trying to adjust to the connection delay on incoming calls. Chris offered to refund my purchase, but if I can get my usual callers to get used to waiting about 10 seconds before we can talk when they call me, I may manage.

    Hmm wondering if you have the latest Firmware for the iPhone? It should pair no differently than any other bluetooth accessory, one would think. I have a 3G and have a Scosche bluetooth receiver (audio/phone) in my car (not a car kit, but rather has audio out), as well as a motorola ear receiver.

    Yes, I had version 2.2 firmware when I posted the above, and have since upgraded to version 2.2.1 hoping it would help, but no change. Apple has taken a stand that they don't need to address the issue because Motorola has discontinued the HF850.

    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    RustyBlazerDude,

    Just a note if you ever find an STS with the BOSE/NAV with voice recognition and the TALK/END button on the steering wheel:

    If you push the TALK/END button up, the car's voice recognition system waits for a voice command. If you HOLD that button UP, the car's cell phone waits for a voice command.

    In other words, that button controls both the NAV/BOSE and the CarPhone's voice recognition systems. Push momentarily up and you get the NAV/BOSE voice recognition mode. Push and HOLD up and you get the Cell phone voice recognition mode.

    Hitting END (pushing TALK/END down) terminates either/both NAV/BOSE and CellPhone voice recognition mode, whatever mode you're in.

    Hope that helps.

    If you're ever in my area, give me a holler and you can hook up your CAN2 Bus sniffer to my car. I think you're on the other side of the country, so this is prolly unlikely.

    Hi Thu,
    Thanks for the offer and info. I've been alerted that some of the voice commands that work the nav go through the onstar vcim. Obviously, if that gets removed, this function will no longer work. I'm working to see how we can get around this and keep this feature as well as use it for the phone as described. First, though, I need to get the GMLAN version working.

    What first started as a simple mod to my vehicle is now getting out of control! But too late to stop now.
