Why are my SYNC®* 4A audio settings returning to default after I turn my vehicle off?

If your vehicle is equipped with SYNC 4A, audio settings such as balance, fade, tone settings, speed-compensated volume, and sound mode settings will go back to their default settings after turning off and restarting your vehicle.

Ford Motor Company is aware of the issue and it will be resolved in a future Ford Power-Up software update.
