    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 .

    Default Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    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!!

    Default Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    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.

    Default Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    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?

    Default Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    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

    I had a similar issue with my GS4 and resolved it by updating the sync software. Log into owner.ford.com and follow sync update instructions from there assuming your sync software is not already upgraded to the latest version. I recall downloading the new sync software onto a USB stick from my laptop, plugging the USB stick into my cars USB port, and then following the install steps that the ford website provided.

    Lightbulb Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    I own a 2014 Ford Escape (the most basic model you can get with base model Sync). I've been able to stream Slacker, YouTube, etc with no issues up until about 2 weeks ago when it just quit. I was streaming, got a phone call, disconnected the call once done, and...NO MORE AUDIO. I've been able to use my phone just fine through the bluetooth in the car, but no streaming audio worked AT ALL. I tried everything as far is master reset, power cycling my phone, unpairing and pairing, forget the device, you name it.

    Disconnecting the battery is a no go, since the design of the car is not made for just anyone to reach the negative post. I found the fuse box under the glove compartment (as per the owner's manual, of course). I disconnected the fuse marked "F67" for "SYNC, Multifunction display, Global positioning system module". Once I disconnected it, I powered my car off, let it set for about a minute, put the fuse back in, and started the car. Bluetooth was still set up, so all I had to do is go through the menu to listen to bluetooth audio. I was happy to find that IT WORKS!!!!

    Talking Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    Thanks to everyone that provided the disconnect battery/pull fuse idea.

    My problem was with the iPhone 6s and Ford sync in a 2011 escape.

    I sometimes in the past had problems where I had to turn off/on bluetooth on the phone before sync would connect. Also had to do a master reset 1 or 2 times. But this time sync microphone would not even work and going to connect bluetooth via dash buttons would only give me the "connect" 2 seconds wait "bluetooth media disconnected".

    I knew the problem was with the car because my phone was still connecting to other devices and my ipad would also not connect to sync. Removed sync, rebooted phone, master reset on sync, turn off/on car. Nothing worked.

    So I googled it, found this tread and pulled the #3 fuse at passenger's feet compartment; real easy on the 2011 escape. And it works right away

    Thanks again. Saved me a visit to the dealer and big $$$ for a simple 3 second pull fuse operation.

    Default Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    Well, I also have a 2011 Fusion and now have this issue. Interestingly, I did have my car recently serviced -- although it still worked after that. As I parked for work one day, it suddenly just stopped playing audio, and I have tried everything (Master reset, pulling phone battery, etc.) to no avail. It sounds like the battery disconnect on the Fusion is the solve, I might try that.

    Then again, I might try pushing the damn thing over a cliff on highway 1, and using the insurance money to get a new car that has a bluetooth system that works!!

    I have a 2011 Fusion, took it for service, battery replacement, after that my sync stopped working and Bluetooth on car continously said 'bluetooth off'. Did all resets on car, still no luck. Looked at this site, tried pulling fuse, no luck. disconnected ground (black) cable from battery for 30 seconds, reconnected battery, and everything started working again, immediately!

    Holy crap. This worked. After two system resets, and taking out my phone battery I was about to head to the store to buy a socket wrench to disconnect my car battery. Glad I tried this first.

    Thank you!!!!

    Default Re: Ford Sync no longer streams my bluetooth audio.

    Registered on this board just to share that I've hit this issue twice in my f150. The first time I fixed it, I was trying to find the fuse for the bluetooth and ended up starting to pull the main fuse out. At that point I realized I had no idea what I was doing and just put things back as they were. The next morning, everything worked. I attributed it to a loose fuse. Fast forward a few months, now when I hit play on my phone, the bluetooth device says its disconnected. I tried several things and then googled it and found this thread. I'm sharing this because it appears there is some sort of hang in the system that requires a reboot to fix.

    Reboot the Sync if it gets stuck!

I can still say "Bluetooth Audio" and it connects my phone and says that it is streaming. My phone confirms that it is connected via bluetooh but it won't play music (unless I turn off the bluetooth button at the top right of the music app and make it play through the phone's speakers). It may be worth noting that using my car's "next track" buttons do NOT change the track that is supposedly streaming from my phone. Notification sounds still play through my car, however.

    What I've done so far:

    1.) I made sure the volume was up on both my phone and my car (obvious, I know...)
    2.) I unpaired my phone with the car and repaired twice with the same results.
    3.) I confirmed that my phone will still stream bluetooth audio to other bluetooth devices.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!
    I got mine to work on my 2012 Ford Focus. Disconnecting the battery didn't work but by taking out the Bluetooth fuse (located under the glove box) and putting it back in it works 100%. Not too difficult to get to, you may want to use some needle nose pliers to help you pull the fuse out. My phone is an HTC M9.

    Hey.

    Easier fix Get someone to call your phone when in the car.
    Try and answer and 9 times out of 10 it wont be able to.
    following this the screen will freeze.
    Then take the key out the car and open the door. This will turn the electrics off.
    Then put the key back in so electrics come on.
    After a few minutes sync will have initialised and music should work.
    I do this everytime the sync stops. Its not a permanent fix but good if you really need it to restart.

    I can also confirm fuse removal works. 5 amp fuse on the top right of the fuse box. Remove the panel under the wheel, remove the fuse cover, pull the sync fuse for 10 seconds and put it back, good to go. Check manual for more details on fuse location
