Installing Bluetooth Handsfree Car Speakers
Every car should be equipped with bluetooth handsfree car speakers. With the everyday use of cell phones increasing and the changes in laws limiting the use of mobile phones in vehicles, it is now the safest way to travel. Once the Bluetooth handsfree car kit has been installed, you will find the freedom of being able to focus on your driving and talk on the phone without jeopardizing your safety or safety of others around you, and adhere to the laws against using a cell phone without a handsfree kit. Having the bluetooth handsfree headset allows you to use the phone while driving down the road, activated by a simple push of a button. This device sits lightly on your ear and allows clear conversation without the use of both hands. By installing the bluetooth speakers in your car gives you optimal results for clear conversations between you and the caller.

Step 1: Is Your Phone Bluetooth Compatible
First verify your phone is compatible with using the Bluetooth. It should give you an option to enable (turn on) the Bluetooth.
Step 2: Bluetooth Speaker Car Kit
If your car does not already have Bluetooth capability, you will need to buy a Bluetooth car kit.
Most cars built after 2006 most likely do have this capability. Refer to your manual if unsure.
Try to purchase the kit closest to the present year. The newest models (i.e., 2009 Bluetooth Car Kit) will be equipped with the latest technology for maximum results.
Step 3: Mount the Junction Box
The best place to mount the junction box is under the dashboard. This protects it from moisture and dirt, away from deploying airbags and is functional for connection.
Step 4: Remove the Fuses
Remove the Fuses and tape them to their holder. Do not reinsert until you have checked all connections.
Step 5: Green Ignition Sense
Connect the ignition switch wire to its appropriate place on the fuse box. When the ignition is off the line of the sensor will be low due to no power.
Step 6: Entertainment Wire
Connect the orange entertainment mute wire to the automobile's main entertainment system. This mute system will only work if the radio is in operation.
Step 7: Primary Lead Connection
Connect the fuse kits red primary lead so that it is fused at 4 amp.
Step 8: Connect the Black Ground Wire
Connect the black ground wire to the base of the vehicle auto system.
Step 9: Inspection
Inspect all of your connections to insure that all wires have been properly fused together. If they have not, then the Bluetooth Kit will not function properly, if it will respond at all.
The yellow and blue wires are not needed in this connection process and will be the only two wires left not connected.
Step 10: Insert the Fuse Box
The last Step is to insert the fuse box. Secure the box and test that the kit is functioning properly by having a practice call made.
Turn on the Bluetooth function after installation and connect the speakers with the device the system will be connected to.
Note: When installing the bluetooth handsfree car kit, it cannot interfere with the vehicle's airbags.
