Hello,
It seems like the microphone is disconnected.

When ever I click the talk button, it acts like it is waiting for me to say something, but I get the “Pardon,” “Please repeat,” or “Would you say again. response like I didn't say anything.

Where is the microphone and/or connections?
It seems like maybe the previous owner disconnected it somehow.
TIA
Nick

I found this:
Initiate the HandsFreeLink diagnostic self-test. - iFixit Repair Guide
I found the microphone is in the overhead sunroof/map light switch and such.
This is connected as I just had to replace the little micro switches for the map lights (they work now- Yay!).

Perhaps my HFL (HFT) module needs replacing? it sounds like this ($400+) module gets replaced if it doesn't even ask for an answer. Mine does ask.
I will follow the diagnostic test soon.

Maybe I will clear it following this setup:
This operation clears the HFL of
your passcode, your paired phones,
all names in the HFL phonebook,
and all imported phonebooks.
Clearing is recommended before you
sell your vehicle.
Press and release the Talk button.
After the beep, say ‘‘System.’’ The
HFL response is, ‘‘System options
are setup and clear.’’
Press and release the Talk button.
After the beep, say ‘‘Clear.’’ The
HFL response is, ‘‘This process
will clear all paired phones, clear
all entries in the phonebook, and
clear the passcode. Is this what
you would like to do?’’
Press and release the Talk button.
After the beep, say ‘‘Yes.’’ The
HFL response is ‘‘Preparing to
clear all paired phones, all
phonebook entries, and the
passcode. This may take up to 2
minutes to complete.’’ Press and
release the Talk button. After the
beep, say ‘‘OK’’ to proceed, or say
‘‘Go back’’ or ‘‘Cancel.’’
If you said ‘‘OK,’’ after a short
period of time, the HFL response
is, ‘‘System has been cleared.
Returning to the main menu.’’
