Some Ford vehicles come with a technology suite called FordPass, which provides enhanced convenience for drivers. FordPass allows you to start your car remotely, get directions, and see updates on your Ford's performance and health status. You'll need to have FordPass technology in your car and a compatible Android or Apple phone to get the benefits of Ford's innovative system.

Activating FordPass

To activate FordPass, you'll need your iPhone or Android phone to download the associated Ford app. If you have an iPhone, you can download the FordPass app from the App Store. If you are using an Android phone instead, you will need to visit the Google Play Store to get the app.

Set Up a Ford Owners Account

Once you've downloaded the app to your phone, the second step to setting up FordPass is creating a Ford Owners account if you don't have one. If you do not have an account at this point, you will be asked to create a secure account login. Additionally, you can customize access to your account at this point based on your personal preferences, which include creating a four-digit PIN or establishing touch ID recognition. Make sure to turn your car off at this point if it's on to complete the next part of the FordPass setup.

Pairing Your Car and Phone

Once you've set up your Ford Owners account, you can sync your vehicle with your smartphone to complete the setup. On the homepage of the account, you will see a feature called "My Vehicles." You will then have the option to add a vehicle. At that point, you will need to enter your Ford's VIN, which can be done manually or by scanning the VIN. If you need help locating the VIN on your car, our staff will be happy to assist. Afterward, you'll want to hit the "Finish" and "Activate" buttons to complete the setup.

A helpful note for your FordPass setup is that you can also activate the system with your Vehicle Controls Card that comes with FordPass. Setting up the card also gives you an alternate method of accessing your vehicle if your phone isn't working.
