    2016 Bluetooth sync disconnecting

    My 16 FPIU bluetooth sync kept disconnecting. My iphone was still connected to make and receive calls, but Apple Music & Pandora wouldn’t play. Got message to connect a bluetooth device. Searched here for the fix, didn’t find it. But found the same problem on an Escape. That solution fixed my...

    Bluetooth suddenly stopped working

    Yes I tried searching, but got 4,000+ threads, and the first 15 or so didn't really help me. I'm not sure what else to try, or if anyone else has a similar issue. The Ex is a 2018 Limited with Nav. I've only had it 2 months, but it has 45k miles so no warranty, thus a trip to the dealership...

    2010 Explorer with sync - how to have default sync mode be bluetooth and not line-in?

    When I turn on the vehicle, my phone's bluetooth automatically connects, but it says line-in instead of the bluetooth audio connection. The only way i can switch it is to enter the voice menu and say "bluetooth audio" or "bluetooth menu" and it will switch to bluetooth audio and immediately...

    Bluetooth is flaky

    I hate that the bluetooth in my Ford Explorer limited 2014 is so unreliable. Calls get dropped all the time and its a 50-50 chance that It even works at any time. Is there anything we can do to make the bluetooth connection rock solid and reliable?

    SYNC/bluetooth fails with iPhone music

    This is my 1st post, I have been lurking here for a few weeks but this sync system is driving me crazy. My company bought this car about a month ago, 2008 Explorer XLT V6. I am quite frustrated with the radio. I have the radio with sync (no sat nav) and I cannot get my iPhone music to play...

    No head unit, Bluetooth direct to amp

    I've gotten rid of my HU because I didn't like it. In the past I had done a 3.5mm jack direct to my amp and played music from my Zune and it worked great. Zune had built-in FM. Now since I have a smartphone (Galaxy Note) I'd like to do a similar setup except have it connect with bluetooth...
