I have a 2015 FFE that is out of warranty that now has the MFT screen doing multiple reboots before it just goes to the black screen of death. This leaves me without radio, seat heaters or steering wheel heat. I see this was a common issue with previous years and Ford extended the warranty on the APIM with Customer Satisfaction Program 12M02. Of course this doesn't cover my vehicle year when I asked my dealer about it. I was told this car does not have the old style apim computer so it does not have extension. You more then likely need a software update.
My question is even if my car doesn't have this old style APIM it is doing the exact same thing that the old APIM did per this thread : http://fordcmaxenerg...een-goes-black/ Do you think a software update would fix this since the old APIM needed to be replaced when people had this same issue? I don't want to pay for a software update that isn't going to fix the problem.
