    Default Sync 3 "hidden menu"

    Good afternoon,

    I have a 2021 xl with the sync 3 unit. I've seen videos of people holding the next on the dash and next buttons on the steering wheel together and a speaker test starts. I've tried this and more combinations but it doesn't work.
    Please share with me if anybody knows how to get into that menu.

    Regards
    Andrew

    Hi Andrew

    Get in car, close driver's door. Ignition on, not just accessory on. Display must be on audio. Press and hold next on steering wheel with next on centre stack control. Hold approx 2 seconds. Speaker test starts.

    Hi GKE,

    Thank you for your reply, I've tried this a few times now, door closed, ignition on and still no luck. All that happens is the radio scans through FM frequencies. Any other ways to do this?

    Regards
    Andrew

    What is the speaker test for?

    Or, why do you need to do this?

    Hi Hedgehog,

    If you can get into the menu you can change backgrounds of the display, themes etc and there are few more settings in the "back end menu" that I'd like to fiddle with.

    You sure it's a sync 3 unit? If it does not have Navigation, it could be Sync 2.5. I have XL Sport and that comes with sync 2.5
