I can't wait until my lease is up to get out of the pos.
Do you have MFT? My SEL 300A with SYNC only has been excellent since day one.

non, I do not have have the MTF. Thank god, I'd most likely take a bat to the console. I don't know how Ford gets away with BS MPG estimates then the lack of system with Sync. Seems very broken. But 5/10 cars that work is great quality control and = the worlds number one selling car? sad.

Not to go off-topic, but my MPG meets or exceeds the specs.

I don't have a lead foot, but I also don't granny the thing around town, either.

I have a 2008 Ford Focus. I've never updated the SYNC software since I bought the vehicle in 2009 and decided to download the latest version/update to a thumb drive and install the update in my car. While the update was going through the 'Rebooting...' phase, I inadvertently turned the vehicle off. Just a force of habit, I guess, but now my car doesn't recognize SYNC at all. When I try to use my voice activation button nothing happens. When I press the media button and it selects each audio option (AM, FM1, FM2, SAT1, SAT2, SAT3, CD) it skips SYNC Line In. I believe the software is completely uninstalled. I unplugged the fuse power fuse underneath the hood release button in my car, but that didn't reset anything.

Any thoughts? Suggestions?

Rumps,

The SYNC software you downloaded to your flash drive is an Autosintall.lst file. Even though you interrupted it during programming, you should be able to re-insert the flash drive to resume the programming.

There are multiple rebooting stages depending on what software you are loading. So as long is it wasn't the last one you should be able to resume.

Sync keeps dropping phone

Sync in My wives 2013 Focus SE keeps dropping the cell phone.The problem started three weeks after we bought the car. I have tried 3 time to re-pair the phone and Sync, it works for about 24 hours then it stops recognizing the phone again. I updated the software on her phone last night, that may fix the problem, if not back to the dealer it goes and see if the can resolve the problem.

Did you get this resolved, Grahamski? If not, shoot me a private message with your VIN, the details, and make/model of her cell phone.

Sync update ever coming?

Greetings!

Got the 2012 Focus SE, and when I first used SYNC, I was happy, all worked great with my Windows Phone 7. Hands free was flawless and I was even able to have it read me my text messages. I got a new Windows Phone 8 and I have found that the Bluetooth is a higher version than the car and now the text does not read my messages and the Hands free sometimes gives me the In Privacy message. I tried to update Sync, but I seem to have Gen1 - V3.1.1.C, which is the latest according to the download page. I have read that an update would be coming which would address this. Is there any news on that? I consider it a safety issue as I occasionally have to pull over or find a parking lot to go call someone back or unlock my phone to make a call.

Thanks!
