Samsung S8 Won't Connect to 2016 Santa Fe

I recently bought an S8, went on-line and did some of those so called quick fixes/power saving things. Now when I try to pair with my car, it shows paired but the Bluetooth setting on the Santa Fe says disconnected, asks to press 1 to disconnect or 2 to connect, and pressing either one still does not connet with my phone. I can play music through my phone to the car (but that connection notice is still there) but no phone connection. We also bought an S8 for my wife and her phone has no problems pairing and connecting.

I'm not overly technically minded so I'm guessing a setting I made has caused the issue but I don't know what to change. I've unpaired, reset Bluetooth connections, but still have a problem.

The only solution I can think of is to totally reset my phone and start again, adding contacts, and music etc from my old phone.

Any ideas to connect?
