Yeah, this is an extreme measure But I think that you have other advantages than "just" the blue and me v2

Re: Blue&Me Control Unit - Price?

Hi,

I recently purchased a Fiat Bravo T-Jet 150 2007 reg, battery ran flat (was the original battery, just died on me) and killed the blue and me system (blue and me buttons on steering wheel wouldn't function for blue and me purposes and couldn't connect my phone or access menus, would play music from a USB stick but I couldn't skip songs). Took it to Fiat Dealership (Vale Motors in Wincanton), they fiddled and re-programmed the unit and made it so that i could skip songs on my USB stick, but said that I needed a new Blue and Me unit to fix the blue and me side of it. They quoted 444 for the part (part no. 51862515) and 100 (all inc VAT) for labour. Big NOPE moment.

Long story short I had a look on eBay and purchased a used B&M unit (part no. 51826504) for less than 20. Took the used item to the same Fiat Dealership and they fitted it in about 30 minutes, charged 50 inc VAT, all now works as new.

Also, when the battery died the electric front windows wouldn't function perfectly. The one touch wouldn't work (hold down the button for 2 seconds and they go up/down automatically) and holding down the lock or unlock button on the key fob wouldn't make the windows go down or up as they used to. Said fiat dealer was able to fix this in 5 minutes and didn't charge any extra for it, i guess if that was your only issue then they would charge around 10, so worth a trip!
