I get an error 911 Assist fail contact dealer for assistance ..... anybody ever have this problem?


My dealer doesn't even have any parts changers that can spell "assistance"


They had my truck for over 4 months and replaced the PCM, BCM and all the ?CM's and modules trying to get it to run, now I just have this problem and a couple more.


The truck is in another shop right now getting deleted and runs fine finally. (other than limited to 50 MPH)


I think it is in the SYNC unit, but I don't know what to do and neither does my dealer.

If you are seeing it on the touch screen it might have something do do with the sync unit that has to be mated with a cell phone.

Amen. My neighbor asked to use my truck. A few minutes later he was back holding the keys asking, “Where’s the remote? How do you unlock the doors?” Um- put the key in the lock and turn...

There is a Sync help phone number in your owners manual that you might try calling.

1-800-392-3673

You might also have to reboot the system.

I had that as an intermittent problem on my ford mustang with SYNC3. It has only happened twice in the car in two and a half years, and I have 911 assist set to off. The service manager at the dealership said they can't fix it unless it is broken when I take it to them.

I also have 911 assist set to off in my pickup with mytouch. After the latest updated it asks me every time if I want it on.



I feel if I need 911 I'll make the call.

Yes, I have it off, but the popup saying it is broke still pops up, AND like you sometimes it asks me if I want to turn it on.

were you able to upload the file that showed Ford Owner you upgraded Sync? Mine will not upload due to an error on the website.
