He may want to check that whole area, plus the spare tire well and the inside of the rear pillar cover for any signs of moisture past or present. That is a common cause for failure of that component and the moisture can damage many more over time.

I have a working, used Nokia PTI phone module sitting in a box in my garage, I am almost sure it is compatible with a 2005 RR (MOST infotainment system.) Part # is XVJ500045 and these modules should be plug and play. If your friend doesn't mind a used module, he can have mine for $75. Tell him to PM me if interested.

Thanks, I'll let him know but I think he wants the newest module that will sinc with his iPhone...I'm not sure what the part number is but when I had mine replaced in my 2005 RR under warranty, I was told by the service guy that they replaced mine with a newer updated model which came in the 2008 RR.

Yea it's true, from 2009 on, there is a totally different phone module fitted, it is from a totally different company and is oblong in shape rather than a bit rounded like the earlier Nokia unit.

Reports i have heard, suggest It has much better compatiblity and has much better acoustics than the unit it replaced. some saying the earlier unit provided inaudiable acoustics compared to as good as land line. It does however have a main plug that is only 2 rows wide compared to the Nokia units 3, so it is no direct plug in relacement, but those retro fitting it like me, have no need of the cradle connectivity and so just a 2 pin header providing power and ground is enough to give it power and it's Blue tooth Connectivity. Its MOST connectivity being the same.

New it costs only half what its predecessor did as well.

BBS SPY ,

Can you post a pic. I would like my iphone to work with bluetooth since these idiots passed a no hand held law while driving, but I did want to spend 500 on a new unit and i couldn't find a used 2008 one.

Do you know if the newer 2009 on units will stream audio through the bluetooth?

Before writing off the module it may be worth trying the following:-
Remove the cradle for the central cubby box - if the system has any 'memory' of it being fitted it gets very confused
Remove the multipin plug into the Nokia unit in the boot clean with Deoxit and reinsert
Also clean the face of the fibre MOST
Reset the AV system by removing the fuses waiting and reinserting

Cleaning the contacts on ours had a major impact on call quality it too was getting towards the unusable not really surprising if you try and run a microphone cable the length of the vehicle! This has also reduced the number of times that the BT module drops the BT connection. The problem is also iPhone firmware related so don't just blame Nokia/LR!!
