My delete phone option or system clear button to remove my phone from the Bluetooth in the car isn’t lit up like I can’t click it.
ANSWER : I have looked online and this seems to be a pretty common problem. There are a couple things you can try: resetting the infotainment system to the default settings and rebooting the system. The latter is the recommended and it is performed by pressing and holding the audio button until the dialog box appears. It seems as though this is a bug in the software, straight from the factory. You might also contact your local Honda dealer to see if they have a software update available to fix the problem.

EPC light on 2004 Jetta. Code said brake switch faulty, but brakes lights worked. Replaced brake switch, now no brake lights.
ANSWER : Hi there. The first thing that pops in my mind beyond of what you have listed is perhaps the electrical harness attached to the brake switch. Perhaps the harness itself is damaged or you have an exposed wire, loose ground wire somewhere. You might want to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a brake lights not working inspection to help you diagnose this issue.
