What are the Stolen Vehicle Services* available on the 2024 F-150 (excluding Lightning)?

The Stolen Vehicle Services feature is a Connected Service that offers peace of mind by keeping an eye on your 2024 model year (MY) Ford F-150, notifying you of suspicious activity, and helping with recovery if your vehicle is stolen.

Activate and manage Stolen Vehicle Services through your Ford Account via the Ford website or the FordPass App®**.


How It Works
Frequently Added Questions (FAQs)


The Stolen Vehicle Services uses various sensors and systems on your vehicle to monitor and report activity around your vehicle. The service will notify you of unusual or unexpected activity through the FordPass App.

In the event of theft, you can also use FordPass to report the theft and alert the police. This service then uses your vehicle’s cellular data connection and the ability to receive Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) data to track your vehicle. 

Note: Tracking can be affected by the loss of these signals, the coverage in your area, or the vehicle's surroundings.

Once the customer assistance team confirms a vehicle is stolen, features in your vehicle (e.g., the Factory Reset function) and FordPass will be disabled. The Stolen Vehicle Services team will work directly with law enforcement to support the recovery of the vehicle.
