Yes! Works so much better with the steering wheel controls. Works perfectly with the iPhone.

Anyone looking for one, this guy has a pile of them for $249...unfortunately wont ship to Canada :(

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BLUET...item519862bee3 **doesnt seem to come with the antennae**

I want to do this to my car and will be installing the steering wheel controls prior. I've tried reading back but this thread is so long: here are my questions and forgive me if they were already answered previously

I have a 1SS M6

1) Is it as simple as just unplug old PCIM and plug in new PCIM w/bluetooth? Any new harness needed?
2) Does the Antennae just plug into the back of the PCIM?
3) What does the dealer have to do? Any activating or program updating?
4) What does On Star have to do?
5) Does the unit just work off the mic/wiring already in place for On Star?
6) Does the radio then act as the set up unit to accept your bluetooth device?

7) What am I missing or should be aware of??

Thanks a million for the help/advice

1) Is it as simple as just unplug old PCIM and plug in new PCIM w/bluetooth? Any new harness needed?
As far as installation, yes. Just unplug the connectors and plug the connectors in the same spot on your replacement onstar box
2) Does the Antennae just plug into the back of the PCIM? ?
3) What does the dealer have to do? Any activating or program updating?
4) What does On Star have to do?
For both of the above questions, you will have to contact OnStar and tell them you had a hardware update and that you need your account transfered over to the new box...at least that's the way it used to be done
5) Does the unit just work off the mic/wiring already in place for On Star?
Yes
6) Does the radio then act as the set up unit to accept your bluetooth device?
Yes, it will be done through the stereo

7) What am I missing or should be aware of??

Thanks a million for the help/advice
My answers are in red above

What are you talking about? I'm lost...... I'm looking for an OnStar module for a 2011 so I can use bluetooth for my phone calls. I have a 2011 thus I can use the iPhone app already......

Ordered and Installed

Hey All,

I just finished installing my Onstar replacement module that I ordered from ebay(posted above). My phone paired right away no problems, HOWEVER i do have a red light on my mirror. I decided to call OnStar from my cell phone and tell them I had to switch my boxes and asked if they could transfer my account. I was given a nicely put 'Hell No' and that I had to do everything through the dealership. Did anyone else run into this problem and know how to resolve it without having to go through the dealership? Also a little interesting piece of information, when I was going through the prompts through the OnStar module and said 'My Phone Number' I got an interesting number of 500-330-7569. Maybe these modules were never activated? If anyone has any input on this let me know.

Thanks

I called from the car and asked for technical asst. I told them that I need to matched this onstar box with my car. Nine times I was turned away and I finally got a rep who knew what she was doing. I got her at like 10 pm.

As shown in my writeup there are two separate onstar modules. to get bluetooth phone from the factory in base model cars you must order the convenience.

Above all, good installation guide indeed. Thanks!

Anyone know what the module part # would be for a 2011 LS? Someone mentioned that 2010s arent interchangeable w/ 2011s and that I need the correct 2011 module. I own a 2011 LS and have steering wheel controls ready to install and am awaiting the PDIM to install that as well. I would like to add this bluetooth but dont know which one I need.

I bought one from ebay, installed it and bluetooth works great. However, my red light is on now and when I press it, nothing happens. Any suggestions on how to resolve this? Or is it possible some of those are defective on ebay (there is a person selling that has several of them). Sounds like the exact same problem as firebirdycamaro.

If you're like me and don't care about connecting an ipod but do want phone support than for about a tenth of the price of the C&C package you can do the above procedure and switch your onstar box to one with bluetooth.
my 1LT has bluetooth??? but it also has the C2 pckge C&C for those who didnt kow C2 lol

Did you notify OnStar that you had a hardware change? They will need to update your account and "synch" it with the new module. Be warned: some users are reporting that some OnStar reps either don't know how to do this or don't want to do this. The "trick" is to just keep calling back until somebody does it for you.

I will try calling them today from a regular phone (Onstar button gets no response) to see if I can do it without going to the dealer first. But, the two responses I got below indicate i may need the dealer to help. I'll update as I learn more.
Thanks,
Tom

1) I received a PM on this question stating:
You can have the red light removed by taking it to the dealer. They have to run this module in it(forgot the name). After that I believe you're supposed to push the red emergency button to have the station ID reprogrammed(this is what the onstar lady said).

2) I also asked the ebay seller the question and he responded with what one of his other customers told him:
I finally got the OnStar module working. It was difficult because GM Corporate put out a warning message to technicians to stop installing Bluetooth enabled OnStar modules in cars not originally equipped with Bluetooth. Once I found a technician willing to ignore the warning, everything was fine. All the technician does is hook the car up to the GM Global Connect computer system, go to Programs, go to Program VCIM, click yes for Bluetooth, and let the update run. Once you get the car back you have to migrate your OnStar account over to the new module. To do this you press the blue OnStar button, ask for technical support, give them your account number, tell them you installed new hardware and request that they migrate the account over to the new hardware. It takes about one half hour for them to send all the programming codes to the car. Once they finish, everything should work great. However, the car will have a new telephone number. Let me know if you need me to help anyone with this modification. The hardware installation job was easy. Finding a technician willing to ignore warnings from GM Corporate and program the VCIM was the difficult part.
