In addition to running on fuel – thanks to that internal combustion engine – your Ford is fast becoming a complicated electronic device. Your vehicle is a great multitasker – it can interface with your electronic devices and get you to the grocery store. As we all know, electronic devices can sometimes be temperamental, and just like your other devices, you may need to reboot your Ford’s MyFord Touch system if it’s not working.
Some of the more common reasons to reset the system are:
- Abnormal operations
- No connection to your cell phone, even if you have tried the reverse pair
- Your media player is not found by the USB port
In order to do a Master Reset of your MyFord Touch system, you will need to follow these steps:
- Go the Setting Menu. On the Home button, you will find the cogs that take you to the settings.
- On the right side of the screen, select the Settings choice from the list.
- Click on System selection at the top of the list.
- You need to scroll down the list and select the Master Reset choice.
When you do a Master Reset of your Ford, all of your saved settings and connections will be lost. This means that you will no longer have access to your Bluetooth devices or cell phones that you have connected to you MyFord Touch System. A reset takes you back to the factory settings, so you will need to pair all of your devices back to the system. The reset does not affect your radio presets, but it will revert any sound settings back to the factory default.
You may need to consult your owner’s manual for information on how to pair your equipment to the MyFord Touch System on your vehicle.
If you find that this does not help you with your situation, then you may need to consult with your local Ford dealership.
