Who does this programming?

To avoid putting together an ASBuilt file myself, I used this guy's programming services: https://sync3programming.com/ but there are others on ebay and across the web. If you can find a newer SYNC 3 vehicle with similar options to your car, I have heard that you can also just use their ASBuilt file. I could not do this because I went from factory Sync 2 navigation, to a Sync 3 system without nav. I also wanted some custom options that I couldn't be bothered to program myself, thus I used that gentleman's programming services.

He will send you an ASBuilt file (with the options for your car/APIM and the custom options you want). Then using FORSCAN, you flash it to your car.
Videos like this help to explain the flashing process:

That's what I need. Going from Sync2 w/NAV to Sync3 w/NAV.

The basic FORSCAN hex codes aren’t difficult to change. Need to be very careful, tho. I just tweaked the code to enable the RV camera and to have the ST splash screen. If I remember correctly, I used my car’s as-built, not the donor’s.

I did some digging for part numbers tied to the APIM module that determines sync version and features.





This might be helpful for everyone.

So, my girlfriend has a 2017 Fiesta (non-ST) with the original Sync 1 system in it - the 14B120A front panel above and the non-touchscreen 4.5inch display. It's given her nothing but trouble and since I've upgraded systems in a number of cars in the past, including my own, I wanted to bump her up to Sync3 with touchscreen for Christmas. I'd like to do the whole stack, the Sony radio, the APIM + screen, plus the front panel/screen housing for it all.

This thread has been incredibly helpful in terms of info and parts numbers, but I was wondering if there's info on the model numbers for the different head units and if there are compatibility issues between those and the APIMs. Just doing my due diligence before I buy anything. Hopefully I'll be able to find a wreck with a full stack available.


Thanks. Useful to know, as I’ll probably go without Nav if I I’m able to upgrade
FYI OEM reverse camera was only achievable on the Nav version of Sync 1/1.1.
Any updates on this attempt?

Found a killer deal on another SYNC 3 APIM with navigation to replace the sync 3 unit I swapped in without nav. This one is out of a Mustang so I'll have to use my base programming code and figure out how to enable navigation. This is what I found for that:

"You can enable nav button with this option:
7D0-01-02: x2xx xxxx xxxx

Shows navigation map on screen:
7D0-01-01: xxxx xx9x xxxx "

I'm going to doublecheck on that with DanMc85 (the SYNC 3 guru) because I'd rather not flash anything I am unsure about. I will update all of you with what I find.

Alright, so new unit is installed and working great. All that was needed was this code change:
7D0-01-02: x2xx xxxx xxxx

Needed to be updated from version 1.0 to 3.0 which I was able to do without first going to 2.2 so that was easy. For some reason I was getting a navigation fault at first but after doing a master reset (after the Forscan flashing and the updating), it’s working without issue. 2E23AB80-9657-4677-9318-5683ECBEB1A0.jpeg

Did you update from Sync 2?

I previously updated from Sync 2 to a non-navigation Sync 3 setup. Found a deal on a Sync 3 navigation APIM I couldn’t pass up, so I just swapped that in.
The code change I mentioned was for swapping from a non-nav Sync 3 APIM to one with nav. I used Forscan to copy the current programming on my non-nav APIM, changed that one line, and wrote it to the new APIM. Worked great!

Really don't know why this one isn't stickied at the top of this subforum...

Such a worthwhile update to early model Fiesta ST's

I agree, I’ll likely be doing this to my FiST as Sync with MyFord Touch has decided to intermittently disconnect Bluetooth with my phone lately, and there’s a wealth of well presented info in here.
