Radio and Climate Control Switches not working in 2012

Hello and thanks for any help!

My car is a 2012 Mustang V6 Deluxe convertible. After not using it for a while, the battery died and I had to jump start it. On restart, none of the center instrument panels switches (radio, climate control, and heated seats) work. They do illuminate, however. The radio itself works via the steering wheel controls, and the climate system remains stuck on the setting last used (blowing warm air) before the battery drained, but there's no way to control them without the center switches working. I checked the fuses and all of them seem to be good. Perhaps I missed one? Does anyone know which fuse is assigned to these switches? The diagram in the owner's manual isn't very clear.

Thanks for any help!

I have not. The battery seems to be working fine, now that it has a charge. The car starts fine, and all the other electric components work.

Unhook your positive battery cable for approx. 5 minutes then hook her back up. Hopefully that will reset whatever's causing your problem. Dang computers go crazy sometimes when the battery goes dead. Good luck.

Thanks for the tip, but no luck with that either. Still getting nothing from any of the central switches.
