when the battery went flat it may have reset the SYNC system and it lost the link to your phone, so you have to repaire your phone to the SYNC system , first go into your phone and erase the SYNC system from you blue tooth conections ,, then re sync your phone to the radio and see if this works,

The problem is that the phone menu has disappeared from the car menu so I have no way of repairing the phone again..I have tried to rescan the phone which shows....'Unable to connect to this device'. I remember this happening before and the car went back to Sunshine Ford on the Gold Coast and they took forever to computer it. Surely there is an easier way

the only thing you can try is a reboot , witch is to remove the negative battery cable from the battery for 3 min , then put it back into place, start the car up and then wait about 2 min and see if the system is working properly,

I have removed the negative lead for three minutes, replaced it and two or three minutes later there is no result.

So will you be saying that there is no alternative than, to visit the dealer?

By the way.... I worked for many years at Ford of Britain and later as a supplier.

Regards *****

ps. I presume you meant, turn the ignition on and not necessarily start the car up?

I have continued the conversation on the 16th. I have not received an answer

Thank you

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
