Hey Guys,


So I have a 4S with 6.1.3 IOS.  My Iphone connects to my Panasonic car stereo via bluetooth just fine except for one thing.  When I pull up Siri by holding the home button no sound comes out of my car stereo.  Everything else works fine......music plays through via Bluetooth, calls, and everything.  Everything except Siri.  Why is that?  Is it fixable?  Is there something I need to change in settings? 


Appreciate the help.  Thanks,


My car is a 2007 Chrysler 300 Touring model


Stereo is Panasonic DEH-X9500


I have also tried connecting to the stereo via USB to see if Siri works that way as well......it doesnt. 


And yes I have tried using siri while not connected to anything and it works just fine.

    Check this support document http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3647 about supported Bluetooth profiles. Not all car stereos will support the use of Siri. It has to do with the stereo's capability to connect to the voice control of the phone. You can look at this troubleshooting support document for car stereos http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3581. I am not sure exactly what Bluetooth protocol is necessary for the use of Siri, but you might want to check with Panasonic support about this. You cannot be the first person to ask this question.


    Seeing how Siri came out after your vehicle did, it is possible there would be a firmware update to your car stereo. Check with your dealer to check with the vehicle manufacturer for an update.
