How do you disconnect the bluetooth module?
I have a 2016 Nissan Versa SV with a Nissan Sentra SV stereo. I was using the wiring diagram from the 2016 Nissan Sentra; the wiring for the Bluetooth Module/stereo pins on the S model Sentra and the SV model Versa is the same. To disconnect it, you simply locate it (it was in the trunk for me) and unplug the 32-pin connector. We then bypassed the 3 pins as I mentioned, and now the steering wheel controls are all functional! I was able to finally get my phone paired, which is amazing.

I still have a bit more work that needs done, though. The microphone and the AUX port still aren't connected, but that will be done at a later time.

Thanks very much. As I analyzed the pin diagrams, my connections also look to be the same. I am gonna give it a go this weekend. Just need to figure out where the BT unit is in my car. Versa didn't change much from 15 to 16. So, I am hopeful that it must be in the trunk too.
The AUX seems to be an easy fix, but finding that 8 pin connector might be a problem. Please let me know if you can find one. Not sure about the mic though.

I actually used the 2014 Versa Sedan service manual to find the BT Module, so it should apply to the 15 as well (it's basically the exact same as the 16 as you said, just newer year). As for the 8-pin connector, it's likely that I'm going to have to buy a connector for that, and the microphone may just have to be re-wired all the way from the trunk to the 32-pin harness up front. I'm gonna likely go through with the microphone first, since I don't ever see myself using AUX in the foreseeable future.

Then, just for completion sake, I may later on add an XM antenna just so it works, even if I never end up using it. Probably won't be adding a backup camera though.

Gotta say though, having BT Streaming Audio is the best thing. That was the ONLY thing I didn't like about my 2016 Versa SV.

Also, I now realize how much of an idiot I sound like in my first post.

When I bought my Versa15, I didn't even know that bluetooth audio is actually a separate thing from bluetooth phone functionality.
I found it out the hard way after purchasing.

Same here. I chose my 16 Versa over a Ford Fiesta, because I didn't like how the Fiesta drove at all. But, it had Bluetooth streaming audio by default, I found out after it was too late.

O.K. Would you folks mind explaining Bluetooth phone use vs Bluetooth streaming. I have a 16 Note SV with one button (on steering wheel) then voice activated calling. I use an MP3 player most of the time, connected directly behind the parking brake.

I thought that music through Bluetooth was actually less less clear (if that is the correct wording).

How do you know you don't have Bluetooth streaming and why would I want it?

Thanks

Alan

If your head unit looks like either of these:


Then you will only have Bluetooth Hands-Free (on 2015 models and up), but not Bluetooth Streaming Audio. These units simply do not support it. The difference is, you can stream your music directly from your phone to your car stereo wirelessly. For me, it's a matter of convenience. I don't have to take a USB drive out of my car and manually transfer files over whenever I get new music, and I'm not limited to just MP3 support, since my phone can play back various file format types. Plus, you can also take advantage of the steering wheel controls (which you can do with USB, but not with AUX).

As far as I've been able to tell, the audio quality between USB (MP3) and Bluetooth Streaming on this unit has been the same.

Why would you want it? Convenience, basically. However, there is also the (unexpected) bonus of better sound quality that I've noticed with the Sentra stereo. However, you do have to keep in mind that doing this upgrade does require some rewiring to get everything working. If you're fine with AUX or USB, doing this upgrade isn't really worth it.

I'm about to put a '15 radio (with BT audio) into my '14 Versa Note (phone-only BT), so I'm going to have to do the same thing to my BT module. Do you have to remove the whole trim panel to get to the module, or is it possible to pull out just one side of it and reach in?
