Default Text messages over car bluetooth stopped working

I had my Droid Maxx working perfectly with the bluetooth in my Honda CR-V. Speed dial, phonebook access and text messages - all working great. I deactivated my Maxx a few times, and used a few different phones. Now, I have reactivated my Maxx, and the text message function will not work consistently.

Before, the bluetooth notified me when I received a new SMS, and it would read the text message out loud to me if I wanted. Now, half the time when I select Text Messages from the bluetooth menu, I get "Text message function not supported by phone" on the screen, and it almost never notifies me when I receive a message. At other times, it works.

I have tried unpairing the phone (and restarting the phone), clearing the handsfree system in the car, and repairing the phone, with mixed success. I can always make and receive calls, and I have access to the phone book, but not usually text messages. The very first time I paired this phone, I was prompted to allow access to phonebook, and call history AND I got a second request to allow access to messages. Now when I pair, it only asks the first question.

Is it possible that something is wrong/corrupt with bluetooth services on my phone? Is there some deeper setting that I need to clear? Do I need to do a factory reset?
