I've read and heard that pulling a fuse if your having problems will help.
Does anyone know what fuse on the 2013 will accomplish this?
Thanks
Lenny

The manual has very good fuse diagrams. Start on page 207

Thank you!
I saw #67 but also saw #79 as a possible one. As well as #81 that list something to do with the radio.
I didn't want to guess or start pulling more than one.
Thanks again

Once you find the right one and pull it out, just throw the little effer away.

Number 67 is the only one you have to pull to reboot MFT. There is a fuse puller tool attached to the inside cover of the fuse box in the engine compartment, it makes it a lot easier to grab the fuse, I keep mine in the glovebox. Also, don't throw any fuses away.

Thanks everyone. I'm starting to have issues with my USB flash drive and mp3s. Freezing, indexing and building voice comands.
I took the flash drive out turned off car and put it in the other port. So far back to normal.
Does pulling the fuse erase all my presets, my phone, clock, and everything else?

No It just makes the system reboot like turning off a phone or computer.

If frequent rebooting is gonna be the norm, I'm gonna have to wire a toggle switch to the center of the dash to cut power to the circuit.

Didn't I read here somewhere from a lady, who works with Ford, that a fix (finally) is due out by end of month? (I hope!)

Thanks again everyone. I haven't had to pull the fuse yet, but was planning to wire in a switch also.
Maybe in the center console, or the glove box. (It's within reach, and might be easier)
