Fortunately, pairing your phone to Bluetooth in a Subaru Impreza is a quick and easy process. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps needed to connect your phone to your car’s Bluetooth system.

Key Takeaways

  • Pairing your phone to Bluetooth in a Subaru Impreza is a quick and easy process.
  • You can connect your phone to your car’s Bluetooth system to listen to music, make hands-free calls, or access your phone’s navigation system.
  • If you have trouble pairing your phone, make sure your phone’s Bluetooth settings are turned on, and try restarting both your phone and your car.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Start Your Car

Make sure your Subaru Impreza is turned on and in park. This will ensure that your car’s Bluetooth system is active and ready to pair with your phone.

  1. Enable Bluetooth on Your Phone

Next, turn on Bluetooth on your phone. This can usually be done through your phone’s settings menu. On an iPhone, for example, you would go to Settings > Bluetooth and toggle the switch to "On." On an Android device, you may need to go to Settings > Connections > Bluetooth and toggle the switch to "On."

  1. Search for Available Bluetooth Devices

Once Bluetooth is enabled on your phone, it should automatically start searching for available Bluetooth devices. On most phones, you can also manually search for available devices by going to the Bluetooth settings menu and tapping the "Scan for Devices" button.

When your phone has finished searching for available Bluetooth devices, it should display a list of devices that it has found. Look for your Subaru Impreza on this list and tap on it to select it.

  1. Enter the Bluetooth Passkey

After you have selected your car from the list of available devices, you will be prompted to enter a passkey. This passkey is a security feature that ensures that only authorized devices can connect to your car’s Bluetooth system. The default passkey for most Subaru Impreza models is "1234," but you should consult your car’s manual to confirm the correct passkey for your specific model.

  1. Complete the Pairing Process

After entering the passkey, your phone should complete the pairing process with your car’s Bluetooth system. Once the pairing is complete, you should be able to use your phone to make hands-free calls, listen to music, and access your phone’s navigation system through your car’s speakers.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you have trouble pairing your phone to your Subaru Impreza’s Bluetooth system, there are a few things you can try:

  • Make sure your phone’s Bluetooth settings are turned on and your phone is discoverable.
  • Restart your phone and your car and try pairing again.
  • Check your car’s manual to confirm the correct passkey for your specific model.

If none of these troubleshooting tips work, you may need to consult a professional technician to diagnose and fix the problem.
