Went out of town for a week. Came back to this.



This is after the dealer did the update. MFT will not master reset, finds my phone but no longer as bluetooth media device. I cannot remove and re add my phone either. It's just stuck.

MFT worked like shit before the update. It's gotten ten times worse since they "fixed" it.

How can you be sure?

As you said, yours is "stuck" (because it needs a reset -or- you have a hardware problem).

Sorry to hear of your troubles . I really wanted to love my new Focus as well and have given the dealer multiple attempts at fixing my vehicle to no avail. I even tried to negotiate a trade to a 2013 but I wanted Ford to come to the table with a little bit to help ease the cost of the trade....Thanks to the wonderful CSM at Ford Canada with the comment after 2 months almost....."sorry my hands are tied"....oh that's why they can't return calls etc.I give up and am enlisting the assistance of the CAMVAP arbritation here in Canada. I don't mean to vent either but you are not alone.

With all the electrical problems you're having it sounds like one of the computer modules had a stroke or something is wrong with the wiring. There's a diagnostic mode available through the MFT that might help.


(shamelessly copied from the Internet)
- Make sure there is no CD in the system
- Set MFT to AM/FM
- Press and hold the eject button and...
- Immediately after press and hold the right arrow on the center wheel while still holding the eject button
- Hold both buttons pressed for about 12 seconds
- Screen goes black and MFT enters diagnostics mode

I move a lot for work. Recently from Phoenix to Huntington Beach. Put some miles on the car the last few days. Had to reset MFT multiple times. MULTIPLE times. I use the nav on my phone. Good times! Would not sync with my phone. Would not even power on some times. Again, the car would not lock/unlock...on a road trip! Tonight I pulled into my hotel and turned the car off. Made some random beeping and then the panic alarm went off. There were cops in the area who proceeded to question me for a while as to why I couldn't get it to shut off and if it was even my vehicle. The transmission has gotten even worse. It's a JOKE. Taking the hit. I'll gladly spend an extra 7k to get out of this gigantic pile of shit that ford has done nothing to help me with. Last Ford product I'll ever own.

Some people will complain about ANYTHING.

But seriously, the car is behaving this way because it knows that you are angry with it.

I like the FORD racing one, but can you make one that says powered by Troyer? (or Troyer Performance?)
