  1. Force updates to fix BlueCruise (which stopped working) ?

    Greetings all! I recently had my Blue Cruise stop working and when I called ford they told me that my Blue Cruise was out of date or “expired”. My trial ends in 2024 according to my account on ford.com. He told me I need to make sure automatic updates are on (they are) and if I have scheduled...
  2. How to set up Wired Carplay in Sync 4 in F-150 -- DIY writeup instructions

    I finally figured out a way to use Carplay via a wired connection. My goal was to skip the wireless Carplay feature so that I could stream lossless audio to the B&O unleashed audio system in my truck. As usual the eager salesperson at the dealership initially connected my iphone via the...
  3. APIM

    Hello, Reaching out to see if this is a common problem, or if there are any suggested fixes. I have 2021 F150 STX purchased in April 2021. In March of 2022 the radio screen became jumbled with text not displaying correctly and features not working properly. After trying hard and soft resets I...
  4. Partial update? Interface issues. Ford site shows nothing to download.

    I believe I got a back update from Ford while connected to wifi. The system shows that there is no update available, but the interface is horribly misconfigured. Unable to use even the manual on the unit. No nav, no carplay usability. I checked on the Ford site with my VIN and it shows there is...
  5. Enable the ability to use Ford Navigation keyboard on screen while in motion (Disabled by default)

    Ever wondered if you or a passenger wants to input the address while driving on the Ford Navigation screen but turns out you can't as Ford locked you out while the vehicle is in motion? Well thanks to @Livnitup, we finally can enable this feature! By using FORScan, you can enable this by...
  6. Call muted stuck on center screen

    Looking to see if anyone has had this issue. I have a ‘21 F-150 Lariat. Center display constantly shows “Call Muted”. I am not in a call. I have tried the soft reset on the Sync4 and that did not clear the issue. Any assistance would be helpful. Thanks!
  7. Anyone having trouble with Carplay changing Audio Inputs on vehicle startup?

    My problem is every time I get in the truck the radio will start out playing whatever I was listening to the last time I was in the truck. Within a few seconds as Carplay is connecting it will switch over to iHeartRadio from my phone and resume the last item I was listening to on that, even if...
  8. "Corrupted" Files Blamed for lack of OTA updates

    So... my dealer has had my truck for a week now... the update I received today: Boy... this does not give me the warm fuzzies... not at all.
  9. Sync CarPlay disconnects consistently

    I use CarPlay for Spotify, google maps, voice to text etc.... I can't get more than 10 minutes on a good day until the system freezes, stops audio, and disconnects CarPlay. 75% of the time it reconnects a couple minutes later, 25% of the time it won't reconnect to CarPlay without a power cycle...
  10. DRL Disable for Canadian Forced DRLs (‘21 F-150)

    Tested the DRL-disable option that can be disabled via FORScan, which is a great feature for us Canadians (not sure if it’s the same for US), I’ve gotten the codes from @Livnitup, huge credits to him! Works great, have zero issues. I tried it on mine and still have it for a few months now. I...
  11. Connected Sync 4 Navigation monthly cost?

    Does anyone that only had the 90 day trial of connected services know of the monthly cost to keep it after the trial? I didn't get the 3 year trial with my 501a, only the 90 day one. I like how Ford stepped up their navigation with Sync 4, if its cheap enough I will keep, but if its $10 a month...
  12. Sync 4 wireless CarPlay won’t automatically connect after setup

    Got my 2021 F150 King Ranch about a month ago. One issue I had with the sync 4 system is that I can successfully setup the wireless CarPlay with my phone and it works well. But as soon as I turn the car off, the next time I use the car, I have to setup the wireless CarPlay again from scratch...
  13. 2021 Sync 4 screen not responding

    So I just picked up my truck just over 2 weeks ago. Been awesome so far! The other day though I get in the truck, my touch screen will just keep going black every time I physically touch the screen. Time is no where near correct either. Truck goes into Ford Today so I’ll see what the issue is...
  14. Sync 4 Bluetooth

    I read somewhere that you can connect 2 phones to the Sync 4 system. If I do this, will Sync 4 tell me on which phone I am getting a call. And also, when I make a call, can I choose from which of the 2 phones the call needs to be made. Will wireless Car Play and Android Auto both work at the...
