2011 Mustang V6 Having some odd computer issues, are they all related?
I'm new to the forum and new to Mustangs. I just bought a "used" (only 3000kms) 2011 V6 and in the first 2 days I've seen some odd computer-ish type behaviors. I'm wondering if they could be related to one-another. I'm also curious if anyone has needed to have the computers re-programmed, or if there's been a recall around this stuff.
So here's the oddities I've seen:
1.) I plugged in a USB drive with MP3 files to use with SYNC. It gave me an error, I think it told me that the device could not be used for playing protected material. I reformatted the drive, put the MP3 files back, same thing again. Tried some other voice commands and eventually it worked.
2.) When I got in the car during the day, the gauges were white (instead of my selected blue color). I had the headlights set to auto, so I guess this makes sense. But when I set the lights to "on", the gauges didn't change (although I believe the actual headlights did change). I went into the menu to set the backlight and it told me to turn on the lights, which didn't do anything. So I drove home, it got darker and the backlight flicked to the expected blue color about half way home.
3.) I am now getting the TPMS fault message. I checked the pressure and they are all good. I do have winter rims on there, but I'm pretty sure they have sensors in them. They came with the car and the fault message didn't appear on the first day (nor in the test drive). Plus they're really nice rims/tires, I doubt the previous owner would spend this much on winter and not get the sensors.
So all of these things seem pretty minor, but if you put them together, is there a common problem here? Or maybe I'm just seeing 3 separate things. I'm going to go talk to the service department today, but I expect they'll be too busy to do anything.
thanks for reading my horribly long post.
