Toledo Oh
This happened to me too. Did you ever figure out what to do?
I’ve had this happen on my 2020 aviator also. Sitting with it parked, I could get nothing to work like turning it off and on again or getting out of the car and back in. But I called the dealer and he suggested a reboot of the APIM. That means hold down the radio ON button, while also holding down the SEEK FORWARD button. Hold them down for a little while and the thing will reboot and the display will come back. I’m assuming it’s the same on the Corsair. That instruction was also hidden in the owners manual under the diagnostics for a SYNC. I don’t know why this happens, but this at least is how to get out of it.

Thank you! This just happened to my 2018 Lincoln MkC and it worked!

Thank you! This also worked for us in a 2020 Aviator! The dealer said we had to bring it in to reset it. So glad for someone simply telling us how!!

This just happened on my 2017 MKC and it recovered but I did this anyways - appears to have worked great - pushed in the middle of the volume button and the seek forward simultaneously until the Lincoln logo appeared on the screen. Thanks for this great tip!

I just want to thank you for the suggestion. The mechanic couldn’t figure out what was wrong and was planning to bring in a “specialist.” All I am saying is that the reset (holding radio power button and Seek forward) worked and it saved me a lot of time and additional headaches.
