Hi Daniel,

Thanks for reaching out. Communications error 12 usually means that the Car is not responding when connecting to Android Auto. If possible, please try connecting with a different cable to see if this might fix the issue. You could also try clearing cache and data.

To clear cache:

Open phone Settings > Apps & notifications > Android Auto > Storage > Clear cache and clear data
Open phone Settings > Apps & notifications > Google Play services > Storage > Clear cache

Sometimes comm error 8 indicates that your date and/or time settings are not the same between the vehicle and the phone.

I started having the same issues about a month ago. I tried 3 different cables. Android Auto connects to my Ford Flex SYNC system, and as soon as I bring up Google Maps, I get a red screen on my phone and a 'communication error'. The first time it did this, the phone gave an alarm sound and said there was moisture detected!  There wasn't a drop of moisture anywhere, and it was a clear dry day outside!
