Sync Issues - 13 Plate

sync

Best Answer jamesm182, 10 October 2013 - 11:49 AM

I have a 13 plate Focus Titanium X. Up until this week I have had no issues with Ford Sync but for some reason when I plugged my iPod in the other day I started to have problems. It would recognise it was plugged in and then it would start indexing as usual but then it says there is an error. Then when you press the voice control button on the steering wheel it says there is no USB device connected. I have tried plugging in my iPad as well and it does the exact same thing.

Does anyone know how to fix this or anything I can try to get it working again? Thanks

 

You may have already tried this but have you tried holding down both buttons on the iPod until the apple logo appears in order to do a full soft reset. Apologies if you have tried this but I have been surprised how many problems this has solved for me in the past when plugging iPods into various bits of kit!

Thanks for your advice. I did this as well as trying another iPod cable. Turns out the lead had become faulty overnight somehow!

Random but I suppose it can happen! At least it's sorted!  :)
