How do I clear the HandsFreeLink system?

Sometimes, you might find it necessary to completely wipe your HandsFreeLink® (HFL) system. Perhaps you’ve decided to sell the car, or maybe you’re handing it down to your child. Whatever the reason, clearing the system of all phonebooks, passcodes, PINs, and paired phones is pretty easy. This is what you need to do:

  1. Press the talk button

  2. Say “system setup”

  3. Listen to the prompts

  4. Say “clear”

  5. Follow the HFL prompts

Tip

You can use the same method to clear/reset the HFL if you’ve forgotten your security code, but you’ll need to re-pair your phone and import your phonebooks again.
