Ford SYNC has become a standard feature across Ford vehicles that allows you to connect your mobile device directly to your car, in order to access hands-free features like Bluetooth audio, voice commands, contact synchronization, and more. But before you can take advantage of the Ford SYNC system, you’ll have to pair your mobile device. Here’s how to do that:
  • First, unlock your mobile device and make sure Bluetooth is turned on in your phone settings
  • Next, use your Ford’s infotainment display to select the icon titled “Phone”
  • Select “Add Phone”
  • Return to your phone’s settings and select your Ford from the list of available Bluetooth devices. It may show up as the name of your vehicle (e.g. “Ford Bronco”) or simply as “Ford SYNC”
  • Confirm the six-digit PIN on your Ford’s infotainment display matches the PIN that pops up on your mobile device. Confirming the PIN will initiate the pairing process
Once you’ve confirmed pairing, your phone should automatically connect to your Ford vehicle! You may be prompted to allow or block certain features like contact syncing or 911 assist before you can begin streaming Bluetooth audio.
