How do I reverse pair a phone with SYNC®*?

Revertir la vinculación es un método alternativo para conectar tu dispositivo a tu sistema SYNC.  

Please use the standard method of pairing first.  Si no puedes establecer una conexión con el método estándar, puedes intentar el método de vinculación inversa. 

Identifying Your Ford's SYNC Generation

These are two resources to help you identify your vehicle's SYNC generation:

  • SYNC and Navigation Updates page, which allows you to enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or log in with your Ford credentials, and select Check for update. Your current SYNC generation will appear on the right-hand side of the page.
  • SYNC Visual Reference Guide, which has example images of each generation of SYNC Ford has offered.

SYNC Reverse Pairing Instructions

Important: Ensure that your vehicle is on and running in a well-ventilated area, and it is in Park (P).

Before reverse pairing your phone, make sure you have:

  • Turned on your phone's Bluetooth®**.
  • Put your phone in discoverable mode. This is normally a timed function, so you will want to work quickly to complete the pairing from this point.

Note: The pairing process can be different on each phone. Watching both the phone and the SYNC system for any messages is the best way to successfully pair a phone.

Select your SYNC generation from the drop-down options below.
