There's no such thing as developer options on the Huawei p8 lite. - Reply

Go to your 'about phone' option in settings and press 'build number's seven times and you'll have a message saying 'youre now a developer'. Press back and above the about phone there will be 'developer options' available.

I have the same problem but came across a solution that might work for you. For bluetooth put your phone in flight mode and switch on bluetooth. For wifi you should remove your media card that could be damaged.
