JPopNC Always take it to the dealer. No hassle and they usually will give you a loaner to drive. What could be easier than that?

Sinsneerly Similar thing just happened to me on the weekend , I went through the process of downloading updates on to a usb , put the usb in my car and the update started ie. the 60 minute message etc. while I was sitting there with car running the screen message said restarting system , screen went black approx. 3 hours later and car running the whole time screen did not come back on and hasn't changed over the last few days. No radio , no sync , I tried pulling and reseating the fuses and pulling the battery cable with no luck.

pozi240 You're not "screwed ", but you'll have to take it to the dealer and they will have to reset it with IDS and then reflash it again. No biggie.

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.

Text12 Bad news, you might be screwed. Something simmilar happed to me durring the update. I didn't kill the power but i got an error about 45 min into the installation and it screwed the radio. It's been broken for a month and my dealer is still working on it. After 5 trips into the dealer they finally got ford to condem the part but new units are on back order (with no eta) so they finally pulled the unit and sent it in to a specialist.

Your dealer is going to have to look at it. Hopefully your case is better than mine.

feta_mgp Neverrrrr kill power during an update!!!

But, Ford should be able to wipe it and re-flash it with the updated version.

1slofofo Consider making an appointment, I made one for the TSB and they took me right as I got there.

MyFord Touch update problem

I just tried to update my myford touch system with my usb drive. It said I was supposed to leave the car on for 60 minutes but after I started I realized I did not have that much time so I have to shut off the car after like 15 minutes. 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.
