Sync 2 -> Sync3 Upgrade - Climate controls reversed

Post by theroninhunter » Thu Jun 21, 2018 9:12 pm

Hi all,

I've upgraded my Sync2 to a Sync 3 and all functions work as per when I had a Sync 2, however I have noticed that if I change the temperature on the Driver side knob that the onscreen display will advise the temp change is for the passenger side (As per this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvXWGas ... e=youtu.be)

Any advise as I've copied my AS Built data pulled from MotorCraftService website

Hi,

Your car as built data can be applied to Sync 2 only. You should do it according to correct Sync 3 config. You can follow two ways.

1- Find a vehicle VIN with same specs with your car equipped with Sync 3. Apply it's APIM as-built
2- There are source spreadsheets like F150, Explorer etc. Use them to program your APIM as-built by yourself.

Also I want to ask where did you buy screen&apim and what's the price?

Regards.

Is that true? Because I keep getting conflicting advise about that and as per my starting thread ALL functions like Rear camera, Park Assist, Front sensors, FLAK Guard are all working perfectly. It turns out that UK cars with Sync 3 do not even come with the climate controls turned on by default anyway.

Most of the parameters are similiar as far as I know such as camera, parking aid etc. I dont know sync 3 very well but If I were you I will do that for sure. Enableing the climate quadrant is no big deal. As I can see from spreadsheets, all of the paramters in sync 3 are well known.

Also I’m wondering why didn’t you made the seller program it for you?

The seller did Program it but was certain that AsBuilt could be from Sync2 settings
