I have an '04 TL and my handsfree works fine. My wife has an '06 TL
and when she receives a call, the caller hears the radio and nothing
else, then the call gets dropped. I had deleted and reinstalled the
phone from the car but that did not fix it. Is this something that is
covered under warranty? (I know - "call the dealer and ask them")
Maybe she needs a new handsfree link system??
Any other suggestions?
I have five articles from Honda having to do with HFL problems. One of
these specifically mentions dropped calls (I can send it to you if you
wish). But nowhere is there a mention of the odd symptom of the radio being
audible to the caller immediately before the call is dropped.
I wish I had more to offer, but calling your dealer may be the only option
here. the problem with that is that the dealer may or may not be able to
bill Honda for the diagnostics work, and/or may be afraid to ask, so this
option might be a non-starter.
Technically, your car may be eligible for a "goodwill" warranty fix, but
such things are not certain. But you never know until you ask.
If you want to try the official Honda fixes yourself, I can send you all
five docs, and you can play around with it and see if that fixes things.
Let me make sure I understand this correctly. Your phone works fine in
your '04 TL but your wife's phone doesn't work properly in here '06 TL.
Is this correct?
If so, have you checked to see if your phone works correctly in her car?
I have an '06 TSX and my Motorola Razr sort of worked. I could receive
calls fine, but when I called someone, I could hear them, but apparently
the HFL software didn't detect that the person I called had answered,
wouldn't connect the call to my phone properly, and the person I called
couldn't hear me.
When I got a Motorola smart phone and paired it to the car, it worked
Tegger or someone might know the url to the official Honda/Acura web
site that lists cell phones and indicates whether they will work with
the car. I'm afraid I don't seem to have the URL. In my case, my Razr
was listed as not working but the older Razr was listed as working and
the newer one also was listed as working.
exactly the situation with my father's AT&T Pantech phone.
Fortunately for him, someone at AT&T knew right away that his phone
didn't work well at all with car systems, so they shipped him a Nokia
But keep in mind, that list says the Pantech works--which, technically,
it does, but in reality it doesn't. So take the list with a grain of
