  2. Navigate to “Add Device” on your vehicle’s SYNC® 3 touchscreen interface.
  3. Search for SYNC® on your smartphone as a pairable device.
  4. Check that the PIN displayed on your phone matched the one that appears on the screen. If not, or if nothing appears, enter the PIN from the SYNC® screen into your phone.
