Steeering wheel buttons not working...?

I have a 11' ses with sync and over the weekend 3 of my audio buttons on my steering wheel quit working ( the button 2 and the second from the button on the left), my USB port quit working, and also when I push the aux button on the dash it goes to fm... Any thoughts or suggestions?

you have a warranty right? take it in to the dealer and let them deal with it.

It could be faulty wiring or a loose connection somewhere.

I have a '11 SE and something similar happened to me...I plugged my mp3 player (30gb Zune) into the USB and it would act like it's charging but wouldn't recognize it on the screen. If i hit the aux button it would just go to FM radio and it was that way until i turned the car off a few times and then it got back to normal....not sure i think it may just be a glitch with the sync system's software. let me know if you take it into the dealership or not and what they tell you! I may take mine if they tell you it's actually a problem

Hi, manpreet2007 -

For the concerns you're experiencing, I recommend performing a Master Reset on your system. Here are the instructions for both radio styles:

Standard radio:

http://Support.Ford.com/sync-technol...ter-reset-sync

MyFord Touch:

http://Support.Ford.com/sync-technol...c-myford-touch

This will restore your settings to factory defaults, but should resolve the issues you're having.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Jaclyn
