  1. So the car runs fine, but you will not buy it because the app does not work? ugh....
  2. Oil life would be nice... but the O, I can look at my car for that. 😎 The Lincoln App for me wasn't working for a while... crash, or it kept thinking I was in Detroit... took them 4 months to get it so it was working again... So maybe in a few months it will for you.
  3. not a big loss... I never used it anyway.....
  4. Probably still using Windows XP, or System 9

    File Not Found

    doubt you'll get a response from Ford on this.... What do you have, what are you attempting to do?

    Updating to 4.6

    it might be 3... it's been a few years since I've done that... like I said, make sure it's USB 2, not 3.... I've tried a few USB3s that I have, and none work... so I always use a USB 2.... slower but it works. Sync 2 can be very picky....

    Updating to 4.6

    Make sure you are putting the files and folders on a USB 2 flash drive, not a USB 3 drive... there can be issues there. there are 2 files, and one folder also , make sure there is nothing else on it... and it's formatted as fat32 or exFAT

    voice recognition not ready 2016 ford sync 3

    Deleting the app, doing a reset of the Sync 3, and reinstalling it might work https://www.ranger5g.com/forum/threads/how-to-master-reset-sync-3-to-setup-activate-ford-pass-app.1859/ From a truck forum, but the same principle applies

    voice recognition not ready 2016 ford sync 3

    Yup, my brain was still thinking of the 2016 from the OP... and yes, a reset, or a visit is needed... Hard to believe it has been that long already...

    voice recognition not ready 2016 ford sync 3

    again... a 2017 will not have Sync 3, unless you did the hardware upgrade.... Even with that, I've seen that you might have to install the files again... or it was not programed right....

    New SYNC 3.4 update available

    The VHR is no more.... Ford got rid of it over a year ago....
  12. Yup, but putting it back will tell him if it's his changes... if it still does not work... then he knows it's not his changes

    Fail to Sync 3 Update

    3.3 and 3.4 came with the 2019's and beyond (some 2018's) and yes there is a way, but Ford does not cover it. So you would be on your own for that if you decide to go that route. and now the 2021/22's will be 4.0 (TBD on which ones) Oh, and as far as WiFi, just go into the settings and turn off the Wifi, or at least the requesting to use it. 😎

    Fail to Sync 3 Update

    Download the file unZIP the file to where you know it is. you should get 1 file that has content, and 1 file that is a 0K file ( both are ok ). autoinstall.lst and DONOTINDX.MSA then you should get a SyncMyRide folder with files in it, leave them all alone. If you are on a Mac, it will work, you just need to Create the SyncMyRide folder and drag the contents of the SyncMyRide\filename.tar..... (etc) files into it, and rename them to just the file names, minus the SyncMyRide\. (don't do anything to the other 2 files) On Windows it seems to be ok when unpacking the .zip file you get from Ford/Lincoln On a USB stick (some have luck with 3.0 sticks, most have better luck with 2.0 sticks, what ever works for you). format is exFAT (Or Fat32) ONLY have the 2 files and the folder (with other files) on it... it is safer this way. (do this in an open area so you don't get exhaust) insert the USB stick, start your car... let it got for 20-30 minutes (or till it tells you it is ok to take out the flash drive, you can leave it in there long after just in case) You might have to open the door, and wait a minute then close it.... it should finish, and the verion should show up.... sometimes it takes a minute or two to show up (being you started with 3.0, it will stay 3.0. just the revision will change (3.0.xxxxx to 3.0xxxxxx)
  15. As troubleshooting, put it to the stock config, and see if you have any issues... if not then YES
  16. Yup, AA and Carplay do the same thing.... Yes it would be nice to be able to control Sync 3.x via your voice when AA or CarPlay are running, but that is not how they made it... Sync 4 is supposed to be more friendly about that, but then you might not need AA/CP at that point, because the maps will be more up to date, like Google or Apple Maps...
  17. Sync 4 will be that way..... or that is the plan anyway. 😎

    Need Help

    The long and short of it is that yes you can upgrade, but it will cost you . Most likely about 1000-1400, or more There are lots of ways to do it.... buy it ready to go and pay to have it put in , or buy the parts for less and pay to have it put in... OR, you can trade in your vehicle, and get what you want.
  19. Probably got it out of something that was not the same vehicle... will need to learn how to use Forscan

    Sync 3......confused, help please

    A 2017 would only go to 3.0.xxxxxx by default. There are ways to move it to 3.4, but there is a possibility of bricking it... rare but it can happen. Your 2017 APIM should be able to handle it , but in the long run it would be better to get a newer APIM (about 300 or less depending on where you get it) from a 2019-2020
  21. A 2013 would not have come with anything over 2.x stock... so someone upgraded it for you before you bought it. https://sync3programming.com/ Dan might be able to assist (for a small fee) I've used him a couple times over the years for the programing.... he's worth it...
  22. Depends on how and what you upgraded, hardware and software.... No Sirius, might mean your ESN number changed and they really don't know where to send the signal. The voice commands are in a file that you might not have installed the right one, or there isn't enough space for it.... LOTS of reasons why....
  23. I don't see mine much, I use Google Maps or Waze But when I do see it, it's translucent... not solid like you showed.... It would be nice it there was a toggle, and that it is only there for a couple seconds....
  24. I dont think you can .... if I'm wrong, someone will post a fix
  25. yup, for some reason the unpacker doesn't like the names for the files in the SyncMyRide folder Dran them in ,and rename them without the SyncMyRide/ names.... so that you get those files with the xxxxx.TAR.gz name in the folder... Soud get something like this
