    The only awkward part of this app is that you have to open FordPass before anything works. Then, it gives you all the instructions which takes additional and unnecessary time. Ideally, it would just be great to be able to say Alexa, lock my truck which automatically would envoys FordPass.

    I’ve been asking Ford this question for over a year now. Now, more than ever, it seems more important. If you ask Alexa to lock or unlock your vehicle, how do you know it did it? They need to enable 2 way communication on the status page of FordPass to let you know the status of your door locks. How simple? Light up the button of the lock status, lock or unlocked. Simple. Why can’t they do this?

    I haven’t been able to get it to work for me. Won’t accept my VIN.

    Try contacting your dealer or ford support via phone.

    I’ll try by phone. My dealer is over 3 hours away.

    Ford Pass works on my Moto G5 phone. I agree with the previous comments and would add it would be nice to open and shut the windows remotely (or check their status).

    Got it to work. Some good stuff, some stuff that could be better. Overall handy, though. Works on my iPhone without any issues.

    It's been great on these cold days...starting the truck in my office parking garage while I'm logging off. Nice and warm by the time I get there. Overall, the app is OK, but improvements to the interface and feature list would be great.

    If you use the FORSCAN as seen in other threads, you can program the truck windows to go up and down with your remote. Not with Ford Pass though but still a pretty nice option.
