I'm in a loop of death with bluetooth
The car is always connecting to the phone, if it's in or out of the car, the car is off or on/in motion.

I therefore can't delete the phone or add another on. I can't use carpal or android auto etc...

Surprisingly I could set up the Digital Key, but not then use that phone as a phone...

Any thoughts / similar stories?

Android ? or iOS ?..turn off Bluetooth ? and FORGET the device from phone or vehicle ?
Its an android that's stuck (Samsung flip z3)
Car refuses to forget, just ignores delete device.
Even if the phone isn't in the car it continuously tries to connect. I did a 6 hour journey on Saturday...

Can't add android or iPhone.

Is there a hard reboot trick like in a tesla?!?

Can you add a second phone and then try to delete the first?

Thanks for all the suggestions. Unfortunately it just refused to delete in any of the scenarios.
I ended up hitting the factory reset button for the whole system.
given the cloud settings this was less painful than expected

Thank you. I had the same problem. Resetting the iDrive worked for me as well. Here is a YouTube video for resetting. It took a bit to figure out how to hold down the volume button. In my opinion you push down the volume button.
