Apparently, you’re not the only one with this problem. I googled for it and came up with several articles about problems with iOS 8.3 and bluetooth. Many of them indicate that restarting stuff usually fixes it. If not, then you’ll need to wait for 8.4 because Apple is aware of and working on the problem.
By ‘restarting stuff’ I mean:
- Restart bluetooth: just swipe up from the bottom to reveal your control center. Tap the bluetooth icon to turn it off, wait a second and turn it back on. See if that helped
- Restart phone: power it off, wait a second, power it back on. See if that helped
- Re-pair the devices. To do that, you need to tell your phone to forget about the car radio, so you can set it up from scratch. Settings->Bluetooth->tap the i next to the car radio->Forget this device See if that helped.
- Last resort: Reset all network settings. Settings->General->Reset Network settings. This is a drastic measure, only if nothing else worked. Be prepared to reset up all Wi-Fi and other network settings.
