    This is a little awkward to describe, so here goes.

    My phone/car bluetooth pairing has developed a new quirk which has me baffled. (Nothing I can identify has changed on my phone (or car) to explain this new behavior).

    If I am in my car and on the road, after the phone has successfully (automatically) paired with the car, all works fine. However, if I then plug the phone into either on of the USB inputs or into the cigarette lighter (equipped with a USB adapter) to charge the phone, the phone immediately connects and shuts off the sound system (as if I am placing a call). (Below is the screen shot of the dash message that appears).

    When this happens, I am unable to disconnect the phone by hitting the "disconnect" (or hang up) button on the touchscreen -- the button is unresponsive. The only way I can get the phone to "hang up" (and thereby release the sound system) is to turn off the bluetooth on the phone. (If I turn it back on everything will work -- until I again plug the phone in to charge).

    I've tried deleting the phone from the car (and vice versa) but the problem returns.

    Any ideas?

    I don’t have any ideas, but if you told us what kind of phone you have then maybe someone with a similar phone might be able to chime in.

    Whoops -- should have mentioned that. It's an iPhone 5 (iOS7 + jailbreak).

    As a note, the image you have attached still has your phone number, even though the one directly in your post censored it out.

    Did you try deleting your phone, rebooting both car screens, then setting up your phone again?

    Thanks Gizmotoy -- fixed!

    Thanks, all, for your suggestions.

    I found the problem -- it was a jailbreak tweak that was somehow triggering siri every time the power cord is plugged in. I deleted that and all is well again with my Tesla.
