One of the easiest and safest features that Apple has introduced is Apple CarPlay. However, occasionally the connectivity problem prevents the user from having a seamless experience.

Make sure Siri and CarPlay are turned on on your iPhone before you start. Ensure that the “Press Home for Siri” option under “Siri & Search” in settings is selected as well.

Before you can use CarPlay, you must enable it in the infotainment system settings of your TrailBlazer. To achieve this, go to Settings, click the Apps tab, and ensure Apple CarPlay is enabled.

Why Chevy Trailblazer CarPlay Is Not Working

There are a variety of reasons why Apple CarPlay might not launch on your TrailBlazer when you connect in the USB wire and there isn’t a CarPlay icon in the list of apps on the infotainment system:

How to Fix Chevy Trailblazer CarPlay Not Working

Verify that CarPlay is turned on on your iPhone. Re-enable CarPlay since a number of settings may be interfering with it. Connect it to your car by going to Settings > General > CarPlay.

Go to Settings > Screen Time > Content and Privacy Restrictions > Allowed Apps if you have iOS 14 and have disabled CarPlay.

Verify that CarPlay is on in your locked vehicle. If it is prohibited when your phone is locked, it cannot be triggered when the screen is off. To fix this, navigate to Settings > General > CarPlay and choose your vehicle from the list of potential connections. Turn on Allow CarPlay While Locked after that.

Check to see if the USB cord is working properly if your car supports CarPlay. Look for any broken or damaged wire components to determine whether the wire is original. Purchase a brand-new, genuine cable because occasionally a frayed wire is the root of the issue you’re experiencing.

Another solution is to disconnect and reconnect to CarPlay. How to do it:
