FordPass App Functionality

These days, we can do just about anything from our phones. Now, the FordPass App allows Grand Junction-area drivers to even monitor and control their vehicles from their devices, including functionalities such as:

  • Remotely start your engine, or lock and unlock your doors from anywhere.
  • Check fuel and fluid levels, and locate the nearest gas stations to fill up.
  • Access vehicle information and service history, and even set vehicle health alerts and service reminders.
  • Use FordPay with stored credit or debit cards to easily pay for your Ford service from the FordPass App.
  • Make monthly loan payments via Ford Credit on the app for a quick, convenient way to handle your vehicle’s financing.

How to Set Up Your FordPass App

Need help downloading and setting up the FordPass App? Follow these instructions:

  • Download the FordPass App from either the iPhone App Store or the Google Play Store. If you already have a Ford Owner account, you can log in with your username and password. If not, you can create an account via the FordPass App.
  • Create a four-digit PIN for security. iPhone users can use TOUCH ID.
  • Add your SYNC Connect-vehicle to FordPass using the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
    • Tap the My Vehicles card.
    • Tap Add Vehicle.
    • Enter the VIN bar code, found on the inside of the driver’s door of your vehicle, by scanning with your phone’s camera or manually typing it in. You can also create a nickname for your vehicle.
    • A confirmation message will confirm your VIN.
    • Tap Finish.
    • After you add your vehicle, a screen will display. Tap Activate.

Activate Your SYNC Connect-Vehicle

Once you have entered your vehicle information in your FordPass App, continue the SYNC Connect activation process in your vehicle.

  • Start your vehicle.
  • A pop-up message will appear on the SYNC 3 touchscreen. Touch ALLOW.
    • Once you’ve completed these steps, you can access the remote features though FordPass.
      • If you miss touching ALLOW, the pop-up message will appear until you touch ALLOW or within the next consecutive vehicle start-ups. If you do not touch ALLOW, you will need to restart the process from the beginning.
