MyFordMobile freaking out..!?

Now this is something I haven’t seen from My Ford Mobile(MFM):

Last night while out I went to check on my car via the mobile app. The app showed a popup that said: “Your vehicle has been removed due to Master reset recovery”!? Hmm the last time I did a master reset (last week) went well: I reset the MFT display and re-entered everything into MFM all seemed to be working fine.

After I returned home I re-added the car to MFM. This morning I awoke to an e-mail stating the same thing: car removed due to Master reset recovery. That’s odd. For the 3rd time I re-entered the car and immediately received the e-mail: car removed… what? Later in the day I figured: what the heck I’ll do another master reset and see if that clears the condition…Nope! After the master reset enter in the data and boom immediate e-mail: car removed…

This is getting a bit frustrating!

Lets see what else can I try? Ahha! I’ll create a new MFM account and try to register the car to that (don’t really care much about the “history” in the old account since MFM didn’t record any meaningful values for the car to begin with!). So far (knock on wood) that has stuck and the car *and* MFM are both waiting the 24 hours for the 2nd confirmation..crossing fingers..

Isn’t technology fun!

Update: After the 24 hour period the car did indeed ask the 2nd confirmation and my MFM access is now restored to its previously partially working status (partially because some data from the car never gets to the website like the Wh/mile value in the trip and charge log).
