      Perhaps Ford learned a lesson from when they rolled out MFT in all models and ran into many issues. Sync 3 was rolled out in stages in some 2016 models with the Explorer being the last to get that in the 2017 models. I believe they may be doing the same with the Sync Connect feature.

      Current conspiracy theory from Dearborn is that Sync Connect is included in all the low end Fords to accommodate the lazy Millenniums. It was deemed unnecessary for anyone who has a job and can afford an Explorer. The FordPass app should be renamed to the FordAss app.

      In reading the posts in this thread, I don't think it's possible. I believe you require Ford Connect in order for Ford Pass to work and 'Connect' just came out with the 2018.

      My Explorer has this an I finally made it to the dealer about getting it up an running and they were clueless. I bought mine used and have all the included paperwork. The manual states the activation pin code was valid one time and to see the dealer for a new one. Obviously that did no good. They actually called the Ford custom accessories place and they stated they need to instruct the dealer on how to hook my car up to their computers to get a new code. Such a convoluted process it seems. And of course the dealer wants to charge me. I was mainly looking to get it set up because there's still an active membership on it. Anyone ever have to get a second pin to get this going? Also, the card that has the original pin and ID number, there was clearly a sim card in it. Is there a sim card slot in the explorer?
