Performing a Master Reset will restore your system to the factory default settings and will erase any bluetooth devices you have paired to your MyFord Touch system. Once the system has been reset, you will need to pair all bluetooth devices again. The Master Reset will not adjust your radio presets, it will only adjust your settings and revert them back to default.
