I have seen a reboot module coded only a few weeks ago. You download to flash and insert. System asks you to run code and it reboots. Works well. I cannot recall where I saw it but it was on one of the MFT sites.

I'll simplify things, you only have three options.

1) Install updates from syncmyride
2) Master reset, fuse pull, master reset, fuse pull, master reset...
3) Dealer visit

To answer your questions of is it possible: Yes. The early versions of MFT used to freeze for 30 seconds every time the auto-dimming kicked in at dusk, so that's connected. Some versions of MFT have the ambient light selection, or at least were designed to, so its possibly connected.

This is bizarre, but it's not quite the most bizarre (the speaker thumping when unlocking the car is the most bizarre in my opinion). It used to be a weekly experience for me: crashes, reboots, random unresponsiveness with unpredictable changes in volume, inability to turn the system off, system wouldn't turn off until accessory power expired (5-10 mins), etc.

I had the new update installed a week ago and so far it's a step backward for me. I really had no issues with my car since last June when I bought it. But now the issues I have are with satellite radio, the station information is lagging for 2-5 seconds when I change channels. Then the bluetooth stopped working with my iPhone 5. I thought it was my phone but it paired with other items. I tried deleting the phone and re-pairing, didn't work. So I did a total master reset and that fixed it, for now. Pretty disappointed in this "update."
