iPhone 6S Plus Sound Stops Working When Car Engine Starts

Problem: As soon as I start my car engine the sound disappears from iphone 6S and this is preventing my grandson from playing his games on it in the back seat of the car. The minute we stop and I turn the engine off, the sound returns. He also gets the same problem with my ipad air but strangely not on his own mini ipad, Any ideas why this happens, as it hasn’t always been like this. Only in the last couple of months.

Solution: One possible reason why this is happening is that when you start the car engine a Bluetooth speaker connected to the car turns on. Once this is on and the phone has connected to this Bluetooth speaker previously then it may connect to it automatically thus turning off the sound from the phone speaker and directing the sound to the speaker. If this speaker volume is set to its minimum level then you won’t hear anything. Try turning off the Bluetooth of the phone then check if the issue still occurs.
