Sync Problems on Home Screen

Recommended Posts

Have a 2017 MKX Reserve and love the car. Had numerous problems which dealers finally repaired. When no issues, love the ride, electronics, touchless gate opening and closing etc. 

Latest issue is the Sync system acting up on Home Screen. It randomly starts beeping then switches from clock screen to home. Tried to update but no luck. States last update unsuccessful on August 2020.

Am taking the car to a Sarasota Lincoln dealer for repair but I'm closing in on last 600 miles of warranty and dealer has been sometimes timely with repairs.

Any idea what may be the issue? Anyone experience the same problem? Could it be APIM failure? Oboviously want to get this addressed before warranty ends.

When you take it in, ask him to run a reserve load test on the vehicle battery. 


There are Ford coupons on line Coupon-Feb2021_batteries.jpg

for a new battery if needed. 


If it is the APIM or ACU, he will be also isolate by checking codes. Should be under warranty if so.
