Ford Mustang Owners Manual: 911 Assist™

WARNING

: Unless the 911 Assist setting is set on prior to a crash, the system will not dial for help which could delay response time, potentially increasing the risk of serious injury or death after a crash.

WARNING

: Do not wait for 911 Assist to make an emergency call if you can do it yourself. Dial emergency services immediately to avoid delayed response time which could increase the risk of serious injury or death after a crash. If you do not hear 911 Assist within five seconds of the crash, the system or phone may be damaged or non-functional.

WARNING

: Always place your phone in a secure location in the vehicle so it does not becoming a projectile or get damaged in a crash. Failure to do so may cause serious injury to someone or damage the phone which could prevent 911 Assist from working properly.

Note

: SYNC 911 Assist feature must be set on prior to the incident.

Note

: Before setting this feature on, ensure that you read the 911 Assist privacy notice later in this section for important information.

Note

: If 911 Assist is turned on or off by any user, that setting applies for all paired phones. If 911 Assist is turned off, a voice message plays and/or a display message/icon comes on when the vehicle is started after a previously paired phone connects.

Note

: Every phone operates differently. While SYNC 911 Assist works with most cellular phones, some may have trouble using this feature.

If a crash deploys an airbag (excludes knee airbags and rear inflatable safety belts [if equipped]) or activates the fuel pump shut-off, your SYNC equipped vehicle may be able to contact emergency services by dialing 911 through a paired and connected Bluetooth-enabled phone. For more information about 911 Assist, visit www.SYNCMyRide.com, www.SYNCMyRide.ca or www.syncmaroute.ca.

• For information on airbag deployment, see the Supplementary Restraints System chapter.

• For information on the fuel pump shut-off, see the Roadside Emergencies chapter.

Setting 911 Assist On

If your vehicle is not equipped with a navigation system, perform the following:

1. Press the phone button to enter the Phone Menu.

2. Scroll until 911 Assist appears in the display.

3. Scroll to select ON, then press OK. Set On appears in the display.

If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation system, perform the following:

1. Press the PHONE hard button.

2. Select the Settings tab.

3. Press Advanced. Select 911 Assist, then turn the system on.

To make sure that 911 Assist works properly:

• SYNC must be powered and working properly at the time of the incident and throughout feature activation and use.

• SYNC 911 Assist feature must be set on prior to the incident.

• A Bluetooth-enabled and compatible phone has to be paired and connected to SYNC.

• A connected Bluetooth-enabled phone must have the ability to make and maintain an outgoing call at the time of the incident.

• A connected Bluetooth-enabled phone must have adequate network coverage, battery power and signal strength.

• The vehicle must have battery power and be located in the United States, Canada or in a territory in which 911 is the emergency number.

In the Event of a Crash

Not all crashes deploy an airbag or activate the fuel pump shut-off (which would activate 911 Assist); however, if 911 Assist is triggered, SYNC tries to contact emergency services. If a connected phone is damaged or loses connection to SYNC, SYNC searches for, and tries to connect to, any available previously paired phone and tries to make the call to 911.

Before making the call:

• SYNC provides a short window of time (about 10 seconds) to cancel the call. Failure to cancel the call results in SYNC attempting to dial 911.

• SYNC says the following, or a similar message: “SYNC will attempt to call 911, to cancel the call, press Cancel on your screen or press and hold the phone button on your steering wheel.”

If the call is not cancelled and a successful call is made, a pre-recorded message is played for the 911 operator, then the occupant(s) in the vehicle is able to talk with the operator. Be prepared to provide your name, phone number and location immediately, because not all 911 systems are capable of receiving this information electronically.

911 Assist May Not Work If

• Your cellular phone or 911 Assist hardware was damaged in a crash.

• The vehicle’s battery or SYNC system has no power.

• The phone(s) paired and connected to the system was thrown from the vehicle.

911 Assist Privacy Notice

Once 911 Assist is set on, it may disclose to emergency services that the vehicle has been in a crash involving the deployment of an airbag or activation of the fuel pump shut-off. Certain versions or updates to 911 Assist may also be capable of electronically or verbally disclosing to 911 operators the vehicle location, and/or other details about the vehicle or crash to assist 911 operators to provide the most appropriate emergency services. If you do not want to disclose this information, do not turn the feature on.
