I have anew issue now with my 2011 F150 FX4. The sync stopped working the day before. I got nothing when I pushed the Media button. No phone, directions,menu. Then it started working for a while yesterday then stopped, Later on it started working now it nothing. Who if any has had this problem, or stopped working altogether and found fix.

Reason: Corrected the year
I had this problem with mine just after I bought my truck almost 2 years ago. Dealer had to replace my radio. Everything was fine up until about 2 weeks ago and it stopped working again. I ended up having to replace my battery after the hard freeze we had last week and it started working when I reconnected the new battery, guess it needed a hard reset. Try disconnecting your battery for 10 minutes and see if it works right after that.
Just bought a 2011 XLT and have had the same issue happen twice. Sync would not respond at all on radio or steering wheel. Phone and Ipod would not engage or show up. Had to shut truck off and restart to get it working. It's a warranty issue but still frustrating.
Ditto for me.....I have new '11 F150 XLT, 5.0 with Sync......worked great first day........since then Occasionally it will drop the phone. I noticed this after a two or three minute stop (shutting down and removing key) like going inside store and getting coffee.....then I get back into cab and sync may or may not boot up completely. I have noticed that if I shut down completely & restart, most of time everything comes up ok.
Question: do I need to download updates from the syncmyride.com site and install?
I've never experienced this on other brands I've had with bluetooth phone.
IMHO truck is really teriffic despite this minor inconvenience!
