Bluetooth Car Issue: Can't Turn Off?

If I am on a BT cell call, and I switch the sources on my iPhone 4 from the car to the handset, I cannot turn off my car's electronics.

Even though the call is no longer coming through the speakers, the time count still appears on the nav screen and the car's electronics stay on, though the engine can be shut off.

Anyone else deal with this? I tried searching but I didn't know what key terms to use.

This only occurs when you are in a call, right?

You need to physically turn off bluetooth on your phone.

My 09's iDrive will stay on till i end the call or switch the audio source when i take the key out.

I can be on a call turn off my car, take my key out, and the call will still be running through the car's system until i switch the audio source on my phone.

Works fine on the "updated" idrive which is what I am told I have.

Okay I have the same issue but I dont think we are getting our point across. Here is what happens: You make a call from your phone - bt connects and no problem during the call. when the call is over you Cannot hang up - either from the phone or the idrive controller by acknowledging END CALL. You then shut off the car and the next time you start it you see the antenna icon flashing and the time of call counting up but no call is being made. You then turn off BT and turn back on and the phone connected is displayed and counting up with no call in progress. THIS IS DRIVING ME NUTS - what is the problem - even tried re-pairing still the same BS. Some one help please
