Connecting to Ford SYNC® 3

When it comes time to “Sync my ride” so that you can place phone calls, play music, and more, there are a few steps you must take. With your phone in hand and turned on, and you car started, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your phone’s Bluetooth® functionality. Make sure your phone is considered discoverable.
  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.
  5. SYNC® will indicate that pairing is successful.
  6. Decide whether to activate or deactivate the 911 Assist feature via your SYNC® 3 system. This feature automatically calls to emergency personnel in the event of a crash. You can also opt in or opt out of automatic contact downloads.
  7. Press the “Finish” button.
