What if my vehicle is stolen?

Stay safe. We’ll walk you through the steps to get your vehicle back. See the step-by-step process.

Theft Protection Alerts

We provide Theft Protection Alerts through the FordPass® App should someone unexpectedly impact, enter, or move your vehicle. This includes attempts to perform a Factory Reset of your vehicle from the in-vehicle screen. You will need to have push notifications enabled to receive these alerts.

24/7 Assistance

Our agents are always available to help if your vehicle is stolen. They can provide the vehicle’s location to the police and answer any questions on your mind. Contact them through the FordPass App. For general questions, you can reach us at 1-866-861-0420.

Vehicle Systems Protection

We keep your vehicle connected in the event of theft. This ensures that only the authorized users can override the vehicle’s connectivity settings, and we can continue to track its location.

How does Stolen Vehicle Services work?

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

If you happen to attempt a Factory Reset during the time your vehicle is stolen, you’ll notice the function is unavailable. That’s intentional — a Factory Reset would hinder recovery efforts. If you need to perform a reset for some reason, you can enable the reset function for one hour with the FordPass App, although we recommend waiting until after your vehicle is recovered.

Availability and Activation

Your 2024 F-150 truck includes a one-year Stolen Vehicle Services plan. You can activate the service through the Connected Services tile in your Ford Account, no credit card required. If you haven’t already, you’ll first need to activate your modem in your vehicle through the FordPass App. This feature is currently available on 2024 F-150 models, with the exception of F-150 Lightning®.
