Hi, I am trying to locate my Blue & Me system in my Alfa 159.
I am currently having the well known issues with the B&M system, including No Media Available when pressing the CD button, and English Language Unavailable.
My USB Port works fine, as my USB lights up when the key is inserted and ignition on, however, it takes 20+ minutes for the system to read the data and allow me to play the music on the USB (currently 2GB stick with 20 songs on)
The English Language Unavailable notification is also only presented after 20+ in synchronization with my media being detected on the USB and made available for playing, but until then, the phone and speech buttons on the steering wheel for B&M / media access are unresponsive and present no functionality at all.
Correct me if i am wrong, buts far as i am aware, an update on the B&M cannot be performed unless the media file paths and navigation system is available on the HUD, due to the option for downloading software from USB to system being located there? (same applies for installing language packs again)?
I have had a proxy alignment done to see if it would provide a fix for the above, but to no avail, with the exception of removing a flashing Odometer which was a plus.
The HUD Time is still flashing which means there is still a problem somewhere, and not just a completely fried B&M system, which gives me a bit of hope that once the still remaining problem is found and resolved, hopefully i will have my B&M back up and running.
I have learned from other sources that an unplug and refit of the B&M system, as well as giving it a clean may well solve the problem, as someone else found to be the case in their Fiat.
So back to my original question, where is the B&M located in a 159? Hopefully not hidden in the depths of the cars dash. (I pray)
Your guidance and any advice would be hugely appreciated.
