Blue & Me Module removal
« on: February 09, 2021, 10:09:34 PM »
Need to replace a clients faulty Blue & Me Module, can anyone point me to a guide for it's removal.
I know it's up under the dash, just want to make sure I don't miss a screw ect and damage anything when removing it.

Thanks in advance.

As I understand it, itís just behind the fascia panel on the dash (left).
Just unscrew (single screw in glovebox) and unclip/yank it off and then change the module

Take some pics and let me know if small hands can reach the air mix solenoids on the AC box (doubt it)

Sorry, didn't read your message properly. The screw in the glove box is apparently accessed by removing a small plastic cover in the top of the glove box.

Oh, by the way, I think you once asked me if it was possible to turn the "Start/Stop" feature off permanently because it annoyed the crap out of you, have worked out a way to do it.

The middle rocker switch on my 2013 Giulietta Sportiva turns the stop start off permanently, which is great because is a pointless pain in the proverbial.

He meant he wanted to turn it off permanently and also not have the warning symbol come up on the dash telling you it was turned off.

We ARE aware of the switch on the dash.  ;)

@bazzbazz you said earlier in this thread
"Oh, by the way, I think you once asked me if it was possible to turn the "Start/Stop" feature off permanently because it annoyed the crap out of you, have worked out a way to do it."

I've recently acquired a 2012 MiTo QV and "Start/Stop" appears to be off but I cannot find out how it was turned off. Did you ever find a setting? Don't think I want to turn mine on but I'm curious
