    Bluetooth disconnects with OxygenOS 5.1.6 OTA for the OnePlus 5T
    I have wiped the cache multiple times too, disconnected and reconnected the bluetooth from the CAR.
    Forgot and added it newly, But still when I'm on a call or play music..it gets connected and disconnected n lot of interruption.
    Is any one else facing the issue with the new update and any way to fix this???

    Update: ISSUE RESOLVED WITH 5.1.7 update.

    I have the same problem. Keeps disconnecting randomly from my car. No problem with my Garmin watch. I had no problem when i was on 5.1.5 but with the latest OTA the BT just gave up. Tried repairing with the car but that did not help. Any tips to make it work again?

    +1... Connets or not, drop connection or not.
    Wiped cache with no results.
    This needs a fix asap.

    Just an update guys, I logged the bug and Oneplus team asked to pull some log of the activities..I have send them yesterday, the development team are looking into the issue.
    Even if you all can log a bug/complaint they would prioritize this issue.. Untill then pls let ur know ones know not to updated this version..
    I know with out Bluetooth its really tough these days!!!

    Yes, same problem here after update to 5.1.6. No Bluetooth-problems whatsoever with 5.1.5. The only thing that solves this issue is restarting my phone while connected to my car stereo; after that the phone connects at once without problems.

    I flash my ROMs manually, as i am rooted. I don't have this issue though. Maybe i do, will need to test it further, but i didn't face any bluetooth drops on my Mi Band 3 and QCY Q19 earphones.

    the only fix is to rollback to 5.1.1
    I have done the same. 5.1.1. is the most stable version right now.
    OP devs are sleeping.

    The bug was there since 5.1.5. If they cared enough, this update would have patched it. OP has changed and are copying apple's strategy to not give a damn about their customers.

    Same issue 5.1.5 was fine, 5.1.6 it just constantly connects then disconnects.
    Would be happy to send logs if you can direct me to where to do it? I tried logging a support request and the reply back was scripted and rather pointless in even trying to deal with.

    The problem is solved for me when I change the Bluetooth AVRCP-version from 1.4 (Default) to 1.6 in Developer Options!!

    Update: Alas, it worked only once... :-(

    The same problem. Start a 5.1.5 and 5.1.6 too. Bluetoth do not work. Do not turn on and kernel process "hal_bluetooth_lock" discharge battery. Phone never go to sleep mode, always in active mode

    Same problem here, cannot connect to car, it tries but immediately disconnects. Problem came after last update I did a couple of days ago.
