After a couple more times of not leaving the car on for 60 minutes (it wouldn't let me exit the update), I finally sat there for more than an hour and it did not finish the update. The last half hour the screen was just black. Now when I turn the car on the screen is just black. Every 5 or 10 minutes it does a system maintenance thing and the radio turns on but I only see the maintenance screen for like a minute then it shuts off again. What do I do? I really don't want to bring it into ford cuz thats going to take forever. Anyway to reset the system?
Might try pulling the fuses(search this site) or disconnecting the battery. I'd put the update in the USB before reconnecting.
