I tried to use sync services for directions. After 10 tries throughout the first few days of ownership, the call would just end and directions would never complete the download. I tried 1 more time and finally completed the download and no directions or prompts came up so I gave up. The next 8 hours of driving had random directions to who knows where pop up at various times without a way to cancel. Finally cleared out. Don't think I'll be using that again. Way too quirky.

Sync re-set... how do I pull fuse?

My MFT on my new Focus has been frozen (again) for the past 2 days. I saw on here that I am supposed to pull the fuse and replace but I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to pull the fuse. Is there a tool to pull it out?

You can carefully use a pair of needle nose pliers if you have them handy or buy a dedicated fuse puller which is just a small plastic piece. Quick and easy though is if you look in one of the fuse bays under the hood, there is actually a fuse puller included and you can just use that. Be careful with the pull though because I blew the fuse when I went to re-insert them.

Is there a way to change the SYNC ring tone when somebody calls you?

Sync Head Unit Location?

I have a question regarding the Sync with MyFordTouch on a new 2012 Focus. I have had prior a 2009 SEL Sedan that was killed in an accident and then a 2010 SEL Sedan that I had just traded in. On both of these cars, there was a hidden USB2 port available directly on the Sync head unit that was reachable via the passenger side dash. This was useful as it was a powered USB port and it allowed me to utilize larger size external hard drives without the need for another power source. Function was selectable via voice command.

With my new 2012 car, I cannot find the actual Sync head unit. I have looked through the forums here and have not found yet a location map as to where the actual Sync head unit is. I have the 2 USB in the center armrest configuration, but I was curious is maybe the head unit has a 3rd usb port that I can directly wire into. If anyone has details as to where the Sync head unit is located in the car with this model year, it would be appreciated as I'm not looking to want to tear through the dash unless I have to.
