Unlocking Convenience With The FordPass App: What Is Ford Pass?

In today’s fast-paced world, convenience is key. Everything is at our fingertips, From how we shop to how we communicate, and now, thanks to Ford, this extends to how we interact with our vehicles. The FordPass app is changing the game for car owners, bringing a new level of convenience and connectivity straight to your smartphone. Join Bill Brown Ford Sales Support Rep Melissa Lelekatch as she demonstrates how to schedule your vehicle start time in advance with the FordPass App in her new Ford Edge. 

I traded in my 2022 Escape after my custom-ordered Ford Edge arrived. Vita helped me through the process and ensured I received all of the available rebates and my Ford Z-Plan discount. I love how easily integrated all the features are with the FordPass application; everything I need is in the palm of my hand. I’m enjoying how smooth the Ford Edge drives, and I can’t wait to test it out on upcoming Northern Michigan road trips,” said Melissa Lelekatch. 

Schedule Your Vehicle’s Start Time In Advanced With The FordPass App

Step 1: Download the FordPass App

First, you need to download the FordPass app onto your smartphone. Available on both Android and iOS platforms, this app is your gateway to a range of features designed to improve your Ford experience. Once downloaded, open the app and create a personal account. This step is crucial as it links you directly to your vehicle and all its specifications.

Step 2: Add Your Vehicle to the Account

After setting up your account, the next step is to add your vehicle. This process is straightforward: enter your vehicle’s details as prompted by the app. This action connects your phone directly to your car, giving you remote access to various features.

Once your vehicle is added, you’ll receive a prompt on your vehicle’s screen asking for permission to connect with the FordPass app. Hit ‘Yes’ to initiate this link. This connection is vital for enabling all the remote features available in the FordPass app, including the ability to schedule start times.

Step 4: Navigate to Scheduled Starts

Within the FordPass app, locate the vehicle tab at the bottom of the screen. Here, you’ll find various options, including the ‘Scheduled Starts’ button. This feature is the key to ensuring your vehicle warms up and is ready to go when you are.

Step 5: Set Up Your Scheduled Start Times

Under the ‘Scheduled Starts’ section, you can set up the times you want your vehicle to start automatically. This feature is incredibly handy, especially if you leave your house at the same time every morning. By scheduling a start time, you can avoid the morning rush and enter a warm, ready-to-drive vehicle.
