How do you delete a Bluetooth device from the 2013 Chevy Silverado?

I just bought a used 2013 Chevy Silverado, and I haven’t been able to connect my phone to Bluetooth because it’s still connected to the previous owner’s device. How can I delete a Bluetooth device from the 2013 Silverado?

Ah, that’s frustrating! Thankfully, deleting a Bluetooth device from the 2013 Chevy Silverado is pretty simple once you know the steps. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
  • Make sure your vehicle is on and in Park
  • Use the touchscreen to go to the list of paired devices
  • Select the name of the device you want to remove
  • Select “Delete”
  • Double-check to see that the phone name is no longer listed under paired devices
Once you’ve removed the unwanted device, here’s how to add yours:
  • Tap the “Phone” icon on the touchscreen
  • Look for an option stating “Add Phone,” “Pair Device,” “Connect Phone,” or “+”
  • In your phone’s settings, turn Bluetooth on, and select your Silverado from the list of devices
  • Verify the code on the screen matches the code on your phone
  • Select “Pair” on the touchscreen
Once your phone is successfully paired, it’ll show up as an available device on the touchscreen, and you can enjoy the Bluetooth life!
