What are Vehicle Health Alerts?

Vehicle Health Alerts use data from your vehicle to provide you with updates on your vehicle's health. You can view Vehicle Health Alerts in the FordPass®* App.

Important: Your vehicle must have FordPass® Connect** and your modem must be activated

They will provide information about your:

  • Powertrain
  • Brakes and suspensions
  • Restraints and driver assistance
  • Checks, fluids, and filters

Each Vehicle Health Alert will tell you:

  • What the alert means.
  • The level of severity.
  • Actions or next steps required.

    Note: Recalls and Customer Satisfaction Programs will also appear on FordPass for non-connected vehicles as well as in your Vehicle Dashboard on Ford.com

You can view a detailed list of the alerts and their meanings on the Vehicle Health Alert Visual Reference Guide.
