Because this was not the native system to your car, it could be a host of items.


I'd begin by trying a master reset or a SYNC 3 reset.


For th he Master Reset:  Start by pressing the PHONE hard button, then choose the SETTINGS tab, select ADVANCED and select MASTER RESET from the menu. Press YES to confirm and the system will reset.


For the SYNC 3 reset: select the radio. Then hold in the POWER button (center of the control knob) and the RIGHT SEEK button at the same time. Hold for at least 5 seconds until the display indicates that SYNC is resetting.


Question. How did you reprogram the nav system to your VIN?
