How to Connect Buick Intellilink

July 27th, 2021 by

One of the more convenient advances in automotive technology is the ability to connect your vehicle to your mobile devices. This connection enables you to seamlessly access your entertainment and your communications and contacts safely from your vehicle controls without refocusing your attention on your device. Most devices that offer Bluetooth connections can be paired with your Buick via the Buick Intellilink infotainment system.

Why You Should Use Buick Intellilink

Almost everyone likes to remain connected while traveling. Our mobile devices provide access to our music playlists and streaming services. They also contain our contact lists for phone calls and messaging services. However, trying to access these services while in the vehicle can distract you from driving, which is unsafe and often illegal. Buick Intellilink enables you to pair your mobile device to your vehicle’s infotainment system. You can then access your mobile device’s services without diverting your attention from your primary goal of driving.
If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, the knowledgeable sales team at Hiley Buick GMC Of Fort Worth can help you choose a vehicle with Buick Intellilink. Navigating our inventory with our assistance will make it clear which properly equipped vehicle is the one that’s just right for you.

How to Connect Buick Intellilink

Buick Intellilink can connect with any mobile device that offers a Bluetooth connection. You just need to ensure that the Bluetooth connectivity service is activated on your mobile device and that your mobile device is discoverable. Once this is done, your Buick Intellilink should be able to find and connect to your device.
You can connect your mobile device to Buick Intellilink in a couple of different ways — either via your vehicle’s Push to Talk voice commands or manually on your infotainment system via the radio screen or color touch screen.

Connecting to Buick Intellilink Via Voice Commands

If you’re pairing via voice commands, follow these steps:

  • Press the Push to Talk button on the screen, and then say “Bluetooth.”
  • The system will say “Bluetooth Ready” and beep in response.
  • Say “Pair” after the beep.
  • The system will say, “Please start a search on your Bluetooth phone.”
  • From your phone, initiate a search for all available Bluetooth connections. You’ll see your vehicle in the list of available connections. Select that vehicle from the list.
  • You’ll see a four-digit code on the screen of the vehicle and will be asked to enter that code into your phone, or you’ll see a six-digit code on your device that should match the code on your radio screen. Either enter the code on your device or confirm that the codes match.
  • Select “Yes,” “Accept,” or “Always Allow” if the system prompts you to accept the connection or allow phone book access/download. This process will enable you to use contact dialing while driving.
  • Your device should now be paired with your Buick Intellilink system.

Connecting Manually Via Your Infotainment System

If you’re pairing your phone with a radio screen:

  • Push the “CONFIG” or “Phone” button on the controls of your instrument panel, which you can find right below the screen.
  • Select “Phone Settings” on the screen using the “MENU” knob.
  • Select the option for “Pair Device (Phone).”
  • When the radio display screen prompts you to start a Bluetooth search on your phone, start the pairing process on your mobile device.
  • From your phone, start a search for available Bluetooth connections. You’ll see your vehicle in the list of available connections, identified by its make and model. Select the vehicle from the list.
  • You’ll see a four-digit code on the screen of the vehicle that you are asked to enter into your phone, or you’ll see a six-digit code on your device that should match the code on your radio screen. Either enter the code on your device or confirm that the codes match.
  • Select “Yes,” “Accept,” or “Always Allow,” when the system prompts to accept the connection or allow phone book access/download. This final step will enable you to use contact dialing while driving.
  • Your device should now be paired.

If you’re pairing your phone via a 7-inch color touch screen or an 8-inch color touch screen:

  • Press the “HOME” button on your color touch screen.
  • Touch the “Phone” screen icon or press the phone button.
  • Next, select the “Search Device” option on your touch screen menu.
  • Choose the device you want to pair from the menu. If your mobile device does not appear on the list, make sure your device has Bluetooth is turned on and that the phone is discoverable.
  • If your phone supports Simple Secure Pairing (SSP), the Buick Intellilink will pair with your phone automatically.
  • If your phone doesn’t support SSP, you will be asked to enter or confirm a code that will be displayed on the infotainment screen.
  • Select “Yes,” “Accept,” or “Always Allow” if prompted to accept the connection. This last step will enable you to use contact dialing while driving.
  • Your device should now be paired.
