Great idea! Connecting to Bluetooth is one of the simplest ways to avoid distracted driving and stay safe on the road. The steps to connect to Bluetooth on a Ford Transit depend on whether you have Ford SYNC or not. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
With SYNC:
  • Open the Settings tab on your mobile device and ensure Bluetooth is activated.
  • On your SYNC multimedia system, press Phone > Add Phone to make the system discoverable from your mobile device. You may see a unique PIN displayed on the screen.
  • On your device’s Bluetooth menu, select your Ford SYNC system.
  • A message will pop up on your SYNC screen to confirm the pairing request—press YES or CONFIRM.
  • Your mobile device and Ford SYNC system are now connected via Bluetooth.
Without SYNC:
  • Open the Settings menu on your mobile device and enable Bluetooth.
  • Press Settings on the Feature bar on your vehicle’s touchscreen and tap Bluetooth.
  • Slide the Bluetooth toggle to On.
  • Touch “Add a Bluetooth Device.” You will be prompted to search for the vehicle on your mobile device.
  • Select your Transit on the device.
  • A number will appear on your device’s screen and your vehicle’s touchscreen. Confirm these two numbers match on the touchscreen.
  • Once confirmed, the touchscreen display will confirm you have successfully paired your device.
