App and car updated yesterday. Thought may, just maybe PaaK would work for the first time ever. But nope, same error. 4 months later.

There is a disclaimer when setting it up now, something like "PaaK will work but is a work in progress and may have problems". I dont remember the exact wordage, but thats the gist of it. They should replace "will" with "may".

Park of the issue may be what Ford's definition of "brief" is.

Their definition of "is" would be a whole different discussion.

I gave up and bought a remote and had it programmed for less than $150. Wife said she needed one but has only driven the car once!

Anybody know if there are any downsides to deleting and reinstalling FordPass? Is that gonna screw up PAAK or anything else?

I’m considering doing this because my FordPass doesn’t even tell me when the car is plugged in or charging. It used to, but that disappeared over a month ago. And apparently it still “works” for some iOS users.

I keep hoping it will return with every new release, but not so far.
I have successfully deleted it and reinstalled and it fixed my issue - sort of... I have a new Galaxy S20+ phone which apparently isn't "included" yet -so PAAK is spotty for me... works occasionally - I hope that they catch up with the PAAK feature soon. For now I carry the keys...

Ironic thing is that I bought a new phone because I knew the car was coming with all of these features and I wanted to be sure my phone was up to the task...

Shockingly it actually lists things and not just "bug fixes and improvements". Nothing that leaps out as something to celebrate for me though.
I looked in my 'Account>settings' and see 3.23.0 , but I don't see any release notes, release date, or anything in msg center with any details at all.... Where do you see any details on what was fixed/added in 3.23.0?

I can say that my phone has completely failed to connect with PAAK for a week or so and I've been either using backup startcode, or FordPass 'Start' button. I have gotten nothing but 'no key detected' on the dash, even though my regular phone functions connect just fine.

I used to be able to re-connect if I turned bluetooth off and back on, but that doesn't seem to do the trick any more.


Does anyone know if there is a sub-section of FordPass that controls PAAK? i.e. is there a separate update just for PAAK, or will it be in the next release/update of FordPass?

I updated the app and have a bunch of "terms and privacy policy" to read when it opened - 23 of them according to the table of contents.

Of course as I was scrolling to review the app crashed and won't re-open!

For the past few days I was trying to set up PaaK but every time I started it would say there was a network error, try again later. Tried everything including clearing storage and deleting/reinstalling the app.

This afternoon I reinstalled 3.22.0 and, surprise, everything worked.
