2018 XLT Scab 2WD 2.7eb

So this morning my SYNC screen was blank (NOT SYNC 3). No clock, tried volume/power button, nothing. Got to work, shut off truck and re-started, voila! all is good. Now I have observed 2 or 3 times in the past, that when I went into reverse, the screen was blank. I would shift out of reverse and back to reverse and it would work. This morning I did not use reverse so that had nothing to do with the blank screen today. Any thoughts? Would the computer store any information on this? Hate to take it to the dealer if it's working.

If still under warranty I’d make them check it out. Could get real broke once warranty is out and real expensive

Exactly! I believe @djfllmn stated that some models experienced APIM issues and some could be corrected with a flash and some needed to be replaced (creating a national backorder). If replacement is needed, the APIM module is quite costly if not still under warranty. ;)

Just to be clear. This is the basic SYNC display, no navigation, no touch screen. If it is not acting up when I take it to the dealer, will they be able to see a "history" of it in the computer? I hate the idea of just throwing parts at repairs hoping something works. I feel like that just creates more problems down the road.

they might be able to see a stored code, they will go through a guided diag test and see if it fails that. If so you get a new APIM
