Are you a Ford vehicle owner? Starting December 2, you may download the FordPass mobile app to access Ford-specific support and content on your smartphone.
Available for Ford vehicles equipped with FordPass Connect or e-SIM internet connectivity‚ the app allows you to remotely access features such as remote start/stop, lock/unlock, and fuel level check.
If you’re one of those who easily forget where you parked your car, the app can also help you find your vehicle in crowded carparks through a vehicle locator feature.
FordPass is available on mobile devices running on Android 7.0 and above and iOS 14.0 and above, and can be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play Store.
Here are the features that will be available on the FordPass app:
- Remote Door Lock & Unlock: Lock and unlock doors without being near your vehicle.
- Remote Vehicle Start & Stop: Remotely start and stop your engine virtually from anywhere and cool the cabin with the last known setting of your vehicle’s climate control.
- Vehicle Locator: Forgot your parking spot? Finding your ride is now easier with this FordPass feature.
- Vehicle Status: You can check how much fuel you have as well as your odometer reading without having to hop inside your car.
- Access to Guides: A team of experts is available via phone call or email to answer any app-related questions.
How to install FordPass
