Sirius radio stuck on updating channels

Just go to the Settings button, then select “Clock” from the tabs on the left side of the screen to find and reset the clock information.

Since the My Ford Touch introduction in 2011, some Ford owners have experienced problems.

This workshop offers a way to reboot and reset the system.

Sometimes the touch screen moves at such a slower rate that it causes the system to slow down or “freeze.” A “freeze” results in a black screen as the system tries to self-reboot.

This is why the manual “reboot” with the battery cable helps.

Briefly removing the black battery cable clamp assembly is an alternate way to reboot as compared to “pulling the fuse.” Of course, it is highly recommended for an owner to visit their Ford or Lincoln Service Department.

Doing the manual reboot (by temporarily removing the black battery cable clamp) may result in the radio resetting to AM, or the clock resetting to , but those items can be easily reset.

Bluetooth is what it is – a low-power short-range way to connect devices wirelessly.

Often the system can get out of phase and cause connection problems.

Wait for the screen that says “Download Complete.” Now, everything should be working better with your My Ford Touch system.

Of course, if this process doesn’t work, then please, visit your Ford or Lincoln Service Department.

This is a general system “reboot.” This procedure varies from what is suggested in the Owner’s Manual, but it accomplishes the same thing.
