Phone - Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
To ensure you make the most of your smartphone’s connection with the Holden MyLink system, there are a number of things you can do to keep you fully connected on the road.
 
First up, always ensure you are running the latest operating system for your phone and all your favourite apps are updated.
 
Step 2
Keep the apps on your phone updated.
 
When using apps, such as Pandora, ensure 'conserve battery' or 'screen timeout' checkboxes are disabled in the app's settings menu, this will provide a more seamless app experience.
 
Step 3
To connect either an Android or Apple phone, make sure you use the manufacturer’s genuine USB cable for the best functionality.
 
Android users may find it helpful to unpair and repair the device.
 
Step 4
Ensure you fully power off and restart your phone at least once a week. Smartphones need to be refreshed on a regular basis to purge and clean up their memory and also correct various other glitches that can affect their performance.
 
Step 5
If you have any problems with your phone connection, you might find that disconnecting the USB cable and unpairing the Bluetooth connection will help. Once you have disconnected everything, also try turning the phone off then on again before you reconnect and pair it with the MyLink system to give it a full refresh.

Step 1
You car is fitted with an diesel particle filter (DPF) to help reduce emissions of soot particles. Over time the soot builds up in the filter and needs to be burned off and cleaned through a process called Automatic Regeneration.
Step 2
This cleaning process is fully automatic and is controlled by the car’s computer so most of the time you won’t know it is happening. However under certain driving conditions such as short, stop start journeys, or if the engine is turned off during the process, Automatic Regeneration may not be able to be completed. In this case, the orange DPF indicator lamp in the instrument cluster will come on or flash.
 
Step 3
If the DPF lamp is on or flashing, you should continue to drive at speeds above 50km/h, keeping the engine speed above 2000rpm, until the light goes out. This can take up to 25 minutes.
 
Step 4
If your speed drops below 50km/h, the Automatic Regeneration process will pause and automatically start again once the speed increases but it is important not to stop the car or switch off the ignition as this will prevent the Automatic Regeneration process from being completed.
 
Step 5
For information on the operation of the Diesel Particle Filter (Exhaust Filter), visit www.holden.com.au/ownership-and-servicing/faq or check your Owner’s Handbook.

Performance of your smartphone in Holden vehicles may vary in the future based on smartphone software versions and network coverage, therefore this information should be used as a guide only.
