hey guys,

 

I have a 2016 edge sel with remote start, sync 3.  I just want to add the ability to remote start my edge using my phone.  There's no range limit on that, right?  also, what part(s) would I need?

Hey Knux, i'm not sure what parts if any you'll need actually.  Your car might already have the capabilities and you would just need to visit your dealer to have it activated  I'd call them first just to see.

 

There is no range limit as long as you have 3G or 4G service in that area.  But remember you will need to subscribe to the service at $49 / year in order to keep that feature going.

Trying to read through this and make sure I have everything correct before I make an order.

This will be installed on a 2014 Edge SE. Is this parts list correct:

Long range antenna - DL3Z-15603-C
VSS - DT4Z-19A361-A
Long range FOB - DS7Z-15K601-F
And finally the hood switch - BT4Z-19G366-A

Well here's what I ended up purchasing for my 2014 ford edge SE.

Hood switch - BT4Z-19G366-A
Series 100 w/1 key - BC3Z-19G364-A

Is there anything I'm missing that is necessary? The car is equipped with a factory alarm if that makes a difference. If these are the wrong parts please let me know and I'll return them and buy the right stuff.

That looks right. You'll need to have ford activate the remote start using their IDS software (typically 1/2-1 hour labor charge).

If your up to it, it can also be done yourself using a Bluetooth OBDII adapter and forscan software.

You'll be connective everything in the drivers side rear of the car (cargo area) to the TPMS module.

Need a little direction. I have a 2014 Edge with power hatch. I've added the hood sensor. I have the Ford keys with the 5 button remote. Do I just need the antenna and connecting wire now? I've heard some conflicting info, not necessarily from here. I don't need or want the vss nor the phone remote. Just the ability to start my car from my office where I can see my car 40' away. I know I'll still need to get it programmed, I just want to have the hardware in place before I go to the deal as I need to have a spare remote anyhow. TIA.

Are you looking for long range or just to use your existing 5 button IKT?

Just use the 5 button remotes that I purchased. These did not come with the edge, just one 4 button.

Found a dealer semi local, about 20 minutes away, that had the antenna kit. I ran up today and picked it up. Talked to the parts guy and he said that was the last peice of hardware I needed. So far I'm about $225 into it for 2 genuine for 5 button remotes, the antenna and the hood switch. A local locksmith will cut them for $6 and try to program them. He says he is 50/50 with the programming. If it doesn't work, no charge. I probably will still need to go to the dealer to turn on the remote start but I want to see what software the locksmith uses first.

from what i gather some locksmiths will "clone" the first key, rather than adding the second key as a separate/standalone key.  something to be aware of.  also the pats system has a max of 8 entries IIRC, hope you don't run up against that as an issue.

That's what this guy would do too.  I had him cut the keys and I'll schedule it with the dealer to program them as originals and enable the remote start.

It's at the dealer right now.  I am having them program the 4 keys and turning on the remote start.  She told me it "should" be $109.  I had an appointment for 11 but when I dropped it off, she said they likely wouldn't get to it until after lunch...  So much for having an appointment.

Hope the reprogramming works tho, it's pretty common to have to wait longer than stated, unfortunately.

Almost 6 hours in and no edge back. Supposed to be programming right now. Should have told me when I came in. Today I needed to be home early and I'm sitting in the dealership 20 minutes after I was supposed to be home.

Ok so I had 2 Ford branded 5-button keys and 2 Amazon supplied non-ford logo 5-button keys. They told me that they could get the Ford ones to work as they should but the non Ford's would only lock/unlock/start but not remote start. Fine, better than what I had before. Well now that I'm home, guess what all 4 work identical. The non logo keys went back together better. It's like the cover on the remote part of the Ford ones aren't latching. I messed with it a little but I guess I'll look more.

Wow! I do seem to recall that mine took awhile longer (maybe 1.5-2 hours). Six hours is staggering!

I was told mine took longer because they had never turned on remote start via IDS before and I was also the first customer there using the smartphone remote access.

They did throw me a free oil change for the delay. I suppose you should get a free maintenance visit!
