Hello p7 friends,
I having issues with my Bluetooth not seeing my cars Bluetooth.
I will go to connect but it will not see the cars Bluetooth. I have a Ford Escape 2013 I've been able to connect all other phones and devices to the car. Could there be something that I'm missing with the connections? What VPN be an issue if it's connected?

Did you try to turn off the VPN reboot the phone and then try to connect to the car Bluetooth? I know when I was trying Google VPN and Android auto started on my car. It was blocked. I had to exclude Android Auto on the VPN to get it to work

Car stereos from that time often could only connect via Bluetooth for phone calls, not streaming audio -- but you're not even able to connect for phone calls?

This isn't the bluetooth problem per se, it is the Android 13 update. You can't clear the cache, as it is grayed out, and cache is stuck at 14.34KB. Numerous threads on the subject. Samsung and Android suck

Where you trying to clear cache?
