Broadcom BCM43228 card - WIFI works fine but Bluetooth does not (Ubuntu 16.04)

Asked by Rainer Glaser on 2017-11-05

- Broadcom BCM43228 card [14e4:4359] in a Dell Precision M4700
- Ubuntu 16.04
- Broadcom STA Wireless driver (Proprietary) - but tried others as well

WIFI works fine but Bluetooth can't be activated, sudo service bluetooth status gives me

"Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset Active: inactive (dead)"

Any pointers/ hints would be highly appreciated

Thx
