The Radio died, the screen went black and we took it to a Ford Dealership. I don't know why Ford does not change the radios for free because it's their mess. If so, the repairs may be covered. I moved the car to a plug-in spot, turned it off and it is now charging with the radio on. I found a tiny piece of hard debris had fallen at the base of the screen and caused the whole issue.
I made an appointment with ford for repair went out the next day started the car nothing no radio no navi black screen backed out of driveway with no camera. This website has technology information, videos and offers downloadable software updates. Purchased car new and had the usual herky - jerky transmission, but Ford fixed that under recall after the car left us broke down on the side of the road. We tried the turn it off, disconnect the battery and wait then reconnect which did not work! Yesterday I downloaded the MyFordMobile app so I could sync my cat with my phone to be notified when my battery was done charging. Mine mysteriously alerted me to a low tire pressure reading although the tires are properly inflated.
Note: If connection times out or connection takes longer than a minute, cancel the connection and go to Step 4. Thanks, Michael Thanks for the reboot tip — it worked! You vehicle should have warranty coverage for any Sync issues. Once it had been off for an hour, the bluetooth indicator in the car next to the clock display turned off — and then the clock was settable. I've seen several other people complain about the same thing. I am going to drop it in the lake and see if that solves the problem, stay tuned.
There has been no disconnecting of the and no power drains. I have checked the fuse, as well as disconnected the negative cable from battery in hopes of resetting and that did not work. When it finally starts to change it will jump up 5 or so degrees at a time until the temperature is correct. Now my radio works completely fine but there is absolutely no sound coming out of the speakers. Keep this clamp off the pole for about five minutes. Within the Phone Menu, System Settings, there is a topic call Prompts. Let the vehicle run for at least four or five minutes.
Before the phone allows the phone book to download, it will show a secondary screen asking for your permission. Thanks Thanks for the question. Lost phone connectivity in my 2010 F-150 Platinum. Next I removed the cover to the fuse box under the glove compartment. The car is always off when I do this.
Or do I need a usb drive? Worked for a little bit. Change Street and the system will prompt for the street and save Eleven, wait a minute or so and your system will reboot and perform a scheduled system maintenance. The entire night while my vehicle was stationary periodically my car would cut in and off, and engage without the keys in the ignition nor present near he car. I've had to pull the fuse to stop the noise. What kind of phone do you have? To keep hearing how this is a computer in a car and blah, blah, blah is ridiculous! If your radio power amplifier is tripping out the main processor then it will override other nav system functions.
This refreshes the system and makes everything work better… I have a Ford Escape 2013. But I have no faith that they Ford have fixed the problems. The hard reboot will always reset the system. Four through six weeks of owning the stupid problematic vehicle from purchasing through a dealer shit and the radio dies. Suddenly the ambient light over the driver door controls will only glow red regardless of which color is chosen on the screen.
Restart your car and let it run for several minutes before resetting anything. These sensors actually based their feedback on temperature. I have not gone to the dealer yet but I was planning on it soon. I have a pre-owned Certified 2011 Ford Explorer with 31k miles. While driving there was a load popping noise through out the speakers and the screen on the radio went black.
