How do I accept Ford Power-Up software updates?

If either   or    icon appears on your vehicle's SYNC®* screen, it means that you need to accept a software update.

Important: If Automatic Updates and Notifications are OFF, your vehicle will not receive any updates. This means your vehicle will not receive any new features or critical updates via software updates.

Choose your SYNC version from the images below (U.S. models shown) to learn how to accept updates:

*Don’t drive while distracted. Use voice-operated systems when possible; don’t use handheld devices while driving. Some features may be locked out while the vehicle is in gear. Not all features are compatible with all phones. 

Actual screens may vary. See your Owner’s Manual for information specific to your vehicle.

FordPass™ Connect, (optional on select vehicles), the FordPass App., and complimentary FordPass Connect Service are required for remote features (see FordPass Terms for details). Connected service and features depend on compatible cellular network availability. Evolving technology/cellular networks/vehicle capability may limit functionality and prevent operation of connected features. FordPass Connect Service excludes Bell Wi-Fi hotspot. 

At purchase, the FordPass Connect modem is connected and sending vehicle data (e.g., diagnostics) to Ford. To disable, or for more information, see in-vehicle connectivity settings. Learn more at
