When I have my car radio on and someone speaks the CK3100 somehow thinks it is me making a call and starts dialing a phone number I have previously saved. This doesn't happen all the time, just intermittently.

Has it always done it with this phone ? Does it make a difference where you place the phone in relation to the Parrot (ie how far away) ? And is it calling the same numbers or always different ones ?

Yes it has always done it with this phone. Position of the phone does not appear to make any difference. 99% of the time it calls the first number on the list alphabetically, eg: AAAHOME, but occasionally will call another close to the start of the list. I did have three phones paired with the device leaving little memory, so yesterday I deleted one of them to see if it makes a difference, so by the end of today I should know. Thanks for replying, I will let you know how I go.

Thank you yes please do.... and you got there before I mentioned it but I was going to say to start deleting any profiles for other phones that may have been connected.

After deleting one phone to allow more memory it still occurred, but I noticed one thing that I hadn't seen before: Both the green and red lights were on in the standby situation and twice within 2km these unwanted calls occurred. On the return journey neither of the lights were on and none of the calls occurred. Although I have had this CK3100 for about five years I can't remember if the lights are on or off when in standby mode, I am guessing off and when they are on indicates a short in wiring or similar? I didn't install so I won't accept the blame if that is the case. I have adjusted all the volume settings, but nothing appears to make a difference. I did ask Parrot what the original volume settings are, but never received a reply.

The problem is solved and thanks for the help. I had three phones saved on the CK3100 leaving little memory, so deleted one. I initially thought that this did nothing, but for some reason when I first start the car both the red and green lights on the CK3100 stay on for about two minutes. It is now only in these two minutes that it makes unwanted calls. When both lights go out it then behaves as it should, so I can live with that two minutes. I would like to thank this forum for giving me the opportunity to ask for help and will keep an eye on it to see if I can help others in the future.
