Subject: Nokia hands free - Bluetooth

I have a Nokia 6310i so it seemed obvious to fit the Nokia CK-1W (update of CARK112) Bluetooth kit to my UK Saab 9-5 (late 1998). I have read various installation instructions online. Those that came with the kit are rather short. Fitting has been straight forward. I bought the handsfree wiring harness from my Saab dealer, and fitted the two jackplugs to the harness, together with the power connectors, and the remote control button. All seemed ok. On turning on the ignition and the phone the bluetooth is recognised (and paired). So far so good. A call can be received - i.e. the stereo speakers mute, the SID says "TELEPHONE", and all goes quiet - and stays quiet. I cannot hear the incoming call and they cannot hear me. Similarly if I try to make a call and try using voicetags the phone display simply says "Not recognised" even though it does if not connected to Bluetooth. It is as if the microphone is not functioning. Adjusting the volume makes no difference. I thought the built in Saab microphone may be faulty, so I plugged in the microphone from the Nokia Kit instead, but it makes no difference. Nor does it make any difference if I plug in the separate Nokia speaker from the kit. I am puzzled. So far as I can see I have done the installation correctly. The Bluetooth unit certainly appears to work - it talks to the phone. I have not connected an aerial. There is no mention in the installation instructions. There is a pre installed aerial cable but I have seen somewhere that it is not required - so presumably the Bluetooth system it simply utilises the aerial in the 6310i. Any bright ideas? I suspect that I have omitted something blindingly obvious. Many thanks to anyone who has read this far!
