How do I set Valet Mode with SYNC®*?

Valet mode is used to prevent others, who have access to your vehicle, from accessing your SYNC system. Enabling Valet Mode locks your SYNC system until a PIN you have chosen is entered.

Identifying Your Vehicle's SYNC Generation

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

  • El 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.
  • El SYNC Visual Reference Guide, which has example images of each generation of SYNC.
