Question about 2008 Ford Focus SE Sedan
Just picked up an 08 focus and tried to use the ipod in the usb port and it comes back no usb attached. Cords are fine. Then I heard to pull the fuze and reset the sync. Now I cannot find the fuze box. Manual stated its on driver side next to brake pedal, but its not there there is one inside the engine compartment but that is main power distribution box.
Any ideas on problem and where is the fuze box?
Actually, I've had this happen twice to me. The first time I **** at the dealership (the car was just 2 weeks old). They took the car for the day and fixed it but wouldn't really tell me what they did. The second time it happened I fixed it myself. DO ALL THIS WITH THE KEY OUT OF THE IGNITION. Under the driver's side dash, right to the left of the steering wheel column (or to the right if you are hanging upside down trying to see down there ;-) ) you'll notice a black plug-like object with a thick bound cable running out of it. The thing to note here is there is a white locking lever on the plug. If you pull down the white lever, the plug lock will release. Then, gently pull the plug away from the base it is plugged into - you have now unplugged sync. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. Be very careful to guide it in correctly as it has tons of pins and you don't want to bend any of them. Once back in, re-engage the white locking lever. Finally, turn your car back on. Once on, the USB port should now work but most likely Sync will still have problems recognizing the device (especially one thats been previously paired/indexed). If it does, perform a 'master reset' of sync through its advanced menu. After doing all of the above, I was able to re-add my iphone as a USB music device and bluetooth phone. Let me know if this helps?

Hi there... Main reset didnt help so I was planning to follow the first solution...I came up with another way. (I didnt want to risk bending the pins) I popped the hood up, disconnected the + side of the battery, waited 30 minutes. Hooked it up again.. I saw the USB right away...
