Hi, dorough -
How soon after starting the vehicle are you giving a command? The SYNC system needs time to detect and connect to your phone.
I recommend checking your SYNC Owner account for an available software update:
If you're currently running the latest, I suggest an alternative pairing process. Certain phones are known to hold the best connection when they're Reverse Paired. Instead of the usual process of your phone finding SYNC, SYNC will find your phone. Before doing so, you'll want to perform a Master Reset on your system. This will restore settings to factory defaults, but should help with the issue you're experiencing. Instructions for both processes are below.
Let me know if this helps or if you have any questions.
