I have the new MCU and haven’t downloaded the .12 update yet, so i can’t reboot via across wheels.
I’ve powered down and exited > entered the vehicle to try and restart the screen boot sequence, but nothing.

I’ve called roadside, and they are out of solutions, and what do you know, engineers who can diagnose and repair remotely are not in on weekends :-/

My last chance to get this to work is to start the update right now, so we’ll see if that fixes things.

Otherwise, my car is stuck outside my coffee shop.

Since none of the steering wheel controls did anything on my current version of my MCU, my only options was to force an update (the touchscreen still worked, thankfully).

The update fixed the issue, and it now allows me to do a force reset using the steering wheel controls now :)
