Am I the only "old geezer" who longs for a LOT LESS computer controls in my vehicule ??? Yes there ARE places where computers do good in cars, but what happened that driving schools stopped to emphacise the computer we were all born with ??
Hello everyone. ?First off thank you in advance for any help on?this problem. I am driving a 2012 Transit connect XLT with the sync radio model ct1t'18c869-ab There is no display as this is a gen 1?? This is a company vehicle so taking it to the dealership is not an option unfortunately. Radio volume is fine no issues. But when I connect my phone via bluetooth and make a call I can barely hear anything. Same with trying to play Pandora even through the USB. So here is what I have done so far. I?currently have a samsung note 8, it connects and makes calls but at a very? low vol, have to put my ear next to speaker on the door. Tried an iphone same issue. Disconnected the battery for 10 min and reconnected same issue. Adjusted vol on phone and radio same issue. Did a reset and master reset same issue. Now I even got exactly the same radio from another transit STILL same issue. I am at a loss. Apparently there has to be another component causing this issue. I did stop by a local Ford dealership to ask what they thought, said they never heard of such a problem. ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks. ?
The HVAC control module controls everything except the blower motor. Hopefully you can reset the module. A scanner that can read DTCs would probably show a communication problem if the module is dead. ? Attached is the description of the HVAC control system. climate ctrl.pdf
I will check the service manual for info on how the climate controls communicate to the body control module BCM. In the meantime, the basic way to reset all the modules is to disconnect the battery for at least 15 minutes. This trick has solved a lot of weird problems.
I too just had this Issue... 2016 TC XLT? ? My battery died (MOTOCRAFT OEM)? and leaked all over, then after I painstakingly?put in a new battery into that stupid clip front box, the a/c and heat?wouldn't work, the damper and vent select wouldn't work either. The Blower fan and speed selector still?works?though. ? Checked codes with my $70 scan tool, nothing, so I had a shop check codes with their $5000 scan tool... NADA Continuity checked every fuse in the Van, all were good, no open circuits none shorted either. My TC also had a 7.5A fuse?in 71 where a 10A is listed.. ? Stumped the shop, they think it *may be* the control module, the A/C heat & damper are likely not a strait through connection whereas the Blower probably is. ? The only conclusion I can think of is the Battery was at 8-11v before I swapped it out. The temp selector had been?left on MAX/AC so maybe the under-voltage shorted the controls out..!?? ? I REFUSE to go to FORD dealership to diagnose it... Those limey bast*rds would probably charge me more than a I'd spend on 4 trips to Colorado just to tell me to replace fuse block or add Blinker Fluid.
