Roadside Assistance

Vehicles Sold In The U.S.: Getting Roadside Assistance

To fully assist you should you have a vehicle concern, Ford Motor Company offers a complimentary roadside assistance program. This program is separate from the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The service is available:

  • 24 hours, seven days a week.
  • for the coverage period listed on the Roadside Assistance Card included in your Owner's Manual portfolio.

Roadside assistance will cover:

  • a flat tire change with a good spare, if provided with the vehicle (except vehicles that have been supplied with a tire inflation kit).
  • battery jump start.
  • lock-out assistance (key replacement cost is the customer's responsibility).
  • fuel delivery - Independent Service Contractors, if not prohibited by state, local or municipal law, shall deliver up to 2.0 gallons (7.5 liters) of gasoline or 5.0 gallons (18.9 liters) of diesel fuel to a disabled vehicle. Fuel delivery service is limited to two no-charge occurrences within a 12-month period.
  • winch out - available within 100 feet (30.5 meters) of a paved or county maintained road, no recoveries.
  • towing - Ford and Lincoln eligible vehicles towed to an authorized dealer within 35 miles (56.3 kilometers) of the disablement location or to the nearest authorized dealer. If a member requests to be towed to an authorized dealer more than 35 miles (56.3 kilometers) from the disablement location, the member shall be responsible for any mileage costs in excess of 35 miles (56.3 kilometers).

Trailers shall be covered up to $200 if the disabled eligible vehicle requires service at the nearest authorized dealer. If the trailer is disabled, but the towing vehicle is operational, the trailer does not qualify for any roadside services.

Fuel Shutoff


Failure to inspect and, if necessary, repair fuel leaks after a collision may increase the risk of fire and serious injury. Ford Motor Company recommends that the fuel system be inspected by an authorized dealer after any collision.

In the event of a moderate to severe collision, this vehicle is equipped with a fuel pump shut-off feature that stops the flow of fuel to the engine. Not every impact will cause a shut-off.

Should your vehicle shut off after a collision, you may restart your vehicle by doing the following:

1. Turn the ignition off.

2. Turn the ignition to crank.

3. Turn the ignition off.

4. Turn the ignition on again to re-enable the fuel pump.

For vehicles equipped with a push button start system:

1. Press the START/STOP button to turn the ignition off.

2. Press the brake pedal and press the START/STOP button (crank attempt).

3. Remove your foot from the brake pedal and press the START/STOP button (ignition off).

4. Press the START/STOP button again to re-enable the fuel system.

Jump-Starting the Vehicle


Do not use fuel lines, engine rocker covers or the intake manifold as grounding points.

Connect batteries with only the same nominal voltage.

Always use booster cables with insulated clamps and adequate size cable.

Note: Do not disconnect the battery from your vehicle's electrical system.
