Its been 3 days since my sync3 has been completely blacked out. Initially there were issues with connecting phone via bluetooth. After rebooting my phone, it got reconnected to SYNC however SYNC blanked out in few minutes and then never turned on. Currently my radio, navigation, bluetooth everything is not working.



I tried pressing the power and tune+ buttons at the same time for few minutes, but nothing happened. I also tried removing the fuse, turned the car on for few minutes, then turned it back off, put the fuse back in. However no help.

Please suggest any alternative method to resolve this issue, or is my module dead? I am thinking of showing it to a dealer, however my car is past the warranty. Any idea how much would the dealer charge for consultation and repair work? I am currently driving a 2012 Ford Focus SEL.

I know this thread is a bit old, but my Sync started having issues a little over a year ago. Completely dead, blank screen. I've determined the APIM is dying, but I am able to kick it back to life for a while by pulling the fuse and letting it sit overnight. The 5 minute pull does not work. Fuse put back in the morning and it reboots, but it's shortlived. At first it was good for a couple months and would happen again. Now I can get maybe a week at best before it dies... I am not giving Ford $800 for a new APIM, that's insane! Trying to hold on to the car for another year before I trade it in and don't want to invest much at this point.
