Cell phone pairing

Hi, my mother has a TL 2008 w/tech package and an iPhone 6 running iOS 12.2.
Until recently she had no problem using her phone in the car. Now, not only the phone disappeared, but I cannot even find the options to pair it again.
She took the car to an Acura dealer and they could not figure it out. They said "the car is too old to pair with an iPhone"...
Any advice on how to make it work again?

whoever told you its too old... that person is full of shit.


Press the HFL button and say "option" then follow by "paring" (I am assuming your mother HFL still working like it should be)

Of course it is BS.
Is the HFL the only way to access phone pairing? Is there a button combination I could follow?

Yes, using the HFL is the only way to pair the phone.

FWIW, my 2005 HFL stopped pairing with my iPhone SE when it moved to iOS 11.XX from 10.XX. I'm on iOS 12.2 now.
Either my HFL is defective or it doesn't pair to iOS 11+.

The HFL works terribly and I cannot even get past "option"...
