    Hi Guys,

    I had the same problem that you are experiencing with my new Ford Fiesta ST 2013. The fix was very simple. the solution as follows

    1. I removed all BT devices on the Ford SYNC
    2. Switch off your BT device
    3. Remane your BT on your phone/device
    4. Switch BT on.
    5. Connect your phone/device with Ford SYNC by following the steps.

    and then you are sorted, It worked for me.

    Hope this helps gents

    IF you have a focus here is what you have to do it has nothing to do with jelly bean

    Click on media sync button top of phone

    then click on menu button it will ask you for media source click OK
    then click up button tell you see USB or line in or Bluetooth media

    select Bluetooth media and you are set that what works .

    Hi guys,

    I can confirm that by disconnecting the battery (ford focus 2013 make (UK) makes the bloody thing work again. By far is easier and quicker than attempting to get to the fusebox.
    I can also confirm that by doing master reset on Sync or by adding/removing devices (including factory reset on the phone) will not make it work, not in my case any way. My problems started after I've done a service on the car. The phone I'm using is a HTC One.
    So, as a piece of advice - remove the battery cover and leave it like that for 10 seconds. It will def work after. All I'm praying now is that the bloody thing stay like that and that i wont have to do this every other week.
    Regards,

    check my last reply to the thread. Don't bother with anything else, just disconnect the battery leave it for 10 - 20 seconds and then connected again (3 min job tops)

    Ok. I have been thru this at least 6 times in the 6 months I have had my 2011 Fusion. Usually, I can pull the fuse (#13) and re-sync my Droid Razor Maxx, no problem. Now, my Bluetooth keeps turning off every time I try to re-sync. It is very frustrating. Its like what is the point of having all this crap if it DOESN'T WORK!!

It's been a problem for years, and they should fix it, and then offer a recall (to apply the fix) for all the affected vehicles.
    I know this is really old, but this just fixed my issue. Motorola even sent me a replacement phone and all I had to do was pull my CAR battery. What a stupid, but simple, fix!!

    I'm going to try the Battery Pull this week and I hope it works.

    My RazrMaxxHD started this Bluetooth skipping thing in my 2009 Ford Taurus Sync right after the Kit-Kat update. It worked perfectly for years before that update. I deleted and re-added all the profiles in my phone and car, factory reset my phone. Now Streaming in my car is impossible. Was looking through these forums for signs that the issue is not my car nor anything I can correct on my phone but I will try the battery pull and let you know how it goes.

    Had same problem in my 2011 F150. All aspects of Sync worked fine for entire time of ownership until the other day. For some unknown reason BT media stopped working; "no BT devices available", despite the phone feature continuing to work fine. Tried master reset, etc.. The thing that worked was removing Neg. battery cable for a couple of minutes.

    Update, Pulling the Battery on the car did nothing. To be fair, there is a Ford Sync update that I have not gotten yet but here's the kicker. The streaming problem is NOT isolated to the car system. Any of you that think it is, then test it on another Bluetooth system and let us know how that goes.

    I have a Motorola S705 Stereo Headset that worked perfectly for years also but now has the same skipping problem. What I’ve noticed now is that after about 10min of listening to it skip, I’m noticing that is actually warping the sound like slowing down a record player, then stops the music completely. I have to go into the player and push play again. It’s doing this on 3 different music players including Google’s own music player. I also recently tried another 'New' Bluetooth speaker that also skips.

    All of this is such BS. I think the problem is in the software and related to the KitKat update. It seems to skip more while updating Running Apps. Like the processor struggles to stream music in order to update other apps. That's what it seems like to me.

    I just don't know if I can stand it anymore. Guess these super brain Android developers are going to force me to buy an iPhone so that I can stream again. My theory is that they continuously create new crap to cram into the OS that it forces you to buy a new model to handle all the processes. Keeps you having to upgrade the phone.

    My device is a couple years old with only 1gb of ram and I believe all the problem occurs when it creeps to about 700mb. Maybe the KitKat OS is just plain using more RAM than the previous OS. Anybody out there have a 2gb RAM device on KitKat that is having the same issue?

    Hi guys - I have had exactly the same issue and have done all the usual - resetting the car, restarting the phone etc. They were only temporary solutions. This is what works for me every time:

    On the phone, go to Settings. Under Wireless & Networks, choose Bluetooth. You should have a list of paired devices. Find SYNC in the list. Click on the Settings icon to the right of SYNC. Under Profiles, untick Media audio, then re-tick it. Come out of the menus on your phone. Click AUX on the car, open your Music app and press Play. It should now work.

    Hope that helps
