2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Bluetooth Beep

May 28, 2014

2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI

After about 30 minutes of working just fine, the Bluetooth streaming in our 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI decided to stop playing music and start playing a single, high-pitched tone at stupid-high volume.

Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?

If I switched to the radio (XM or FM, I didn't try AM because I don't think that band exists anymore), the beep stopped. Back to Bluetooth and there it was! This went on until I pulled over, stopped the car and restarted it. Then everything was fine.

    Another solution is to become old and decrepit like me and that frequency is no longer audible!
