How do I set Valet Mode with SYNC®*?

You can find the steps needed to set Valet Mode with SYNC below.

Valet mode is used to prevent others, who have access to your vehicle, from accessing your SYNC system. Enabling Valet Mode locks your SYNC system until a PIN you have chosen is entered.

Identifying Your Vehicle's SYNC Generation

There are two resources to help you identify your vehicle's SYNC generation:

  • SYNC and Navigation Updates page, which allows you to enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or Login with your Ford credentials, and select Check for update. Your current SYNC generation will appear on the right-hand side of the page.
