Android Auto keeps disconnecting Ford

If you're experiencing connectivity issues with Android Auto in your Ford vehicle, there are steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem. First, ensure that you're using a high-quality USB cable that is compatible with both your Android device and the USB port in your Ford. Using a faulty or incompatible cable can lead to connection problems. If you're still encountering issues with USB connectivity, you may want to explore wireless Android Auto options.

While not all Ford models come with built-in support for wireless Android Auto, there are aftermarket solutions available, such as AAWireless. AAWireless is a device that enables wireless Android Auto connectivity in select vehicles, including some Ford models. By adopting Android Auto Wireless, you can eliminate the need for a USB cable and enjoy a wireless connection between your Android device and your Ford's infotainment system. Before purchasing an AAWireless device for your Ford, it's advisable to verify its compatibility with your specific Ford model.

If you're interested in purchasing an AAWireless device, you can find it on our webshop (Europe) or on platforms like Amazon (UK & US). However, it's important to note that compatibility may vary depending on the make, model, and year of your Ford vehicle. For the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding wireless Android Auto compatibility in your specific Ford model, it's recommended to refer to official Ford sources or contact a Ford dealership.

In case you are already using AAWireless:

  • Please make sure that you are on firmware version 2.0.0 or higher, after that please open "Device settings" and press "Wi-Fi settings" and try different Wi-Fi channels.
  • Please wipe the Bluetooth connection from the phone's side and try reconnecting to AAWireless.
  • Please enable Passthrough from the companion app.
  • Please check using different USB-C cables. Sometimes the cable causes connection issues.
  • Please make sure battery optimization is not on in your phone settings.
  • Make sure Google Play Service and Android Auto, Google Maps, Waze and Google app have all the permissions enabled.
  • Please clear the cache and storage of AA & Google Play Service and reboot the phone after that.
  • If possible, please check with another phone.
