If CarPlay doesn't work like you expect, here’s what you can check. After each step, try using CarPlay again.

  1. Make sure that Siri is turned on.
  2. Restart your iPhone and your car. Depending on your car, you might see the CarPlay Home screen when you turn it on. If you don't, look for the CarPlay logo on your car’s display.
  3. If possible, connect your iPhone to a different USB port in your car.
  4. Try a different Lightning to USB cable. Make sure that the cable is certified.
  5. Update to the latest version of iOS.
  6. Check your car’s manual for help. You might need to install firmware updates for your stereo.

I have volvo xc90, 2007 year. I don't have carplay and any touchscreens. I have built in bluetooth handsfree and only one way how to pair mobile with car is via bluetooth pairing. In my case in for iphone 5s it is work, but for my iphone x car disconnect pairing after entering pairing code 1234 or 0000.

Thanks for following up with that additional information. Check the Volvo website below to ensure your device is compatible:

Then go through the troubleshooting steps in the previous article that was shared, including updating your stereo if possible, and contacting Apple Support if necessary:

If you're using Bluetooth

  1. Check your car stereo's user manual for how to pair with a Bluetooth device.
  2. Go to Settings > Bluetooth, and turn off Bluetooth. Wait for 5 seconds, then turn Bluetooth back on.
  3. Restart your iOS device.
  4. On your iOS device, unpair your car stereo. On your car's display, unpair your iOS device and any other devices. Restart your car and your iOS device, then pair and connect again.
  5. Update your iOS device.
  6. Install any firmware updates for your car stereo.
  7. If you still can't connect, contact Apple Support.
