Temporary means just that; if your car is in D and you use a paddle to upshift or downshift, the car will be in "manual" shifting mode for a short time period, then it will revert back to full auto if you stop using the paddles. E.g. If you are driving 60mph in D + Auto and you start applying your brakes with the aim to come to a complete halt, you can use the paddles to downshift for some engine braking. Whilst you are doing this, the car will be in manual mode and allow you to shift (ignoring the built in shift logic) until the car thinks you are done using the paddles e.g. when you stop shifting down when you got to 3rd gear and came to a complete stop. Same thing with upshift e.g. if you are parked and you want to pull away in 2nd, pull the paddle, the car will shift the car to 2nd but if you do not upshift yourself using the paddle, the car will takeover.
In S, once you use the paddles, the car will remain in manual mode until you shift the car to D or press and hold the right paddle. The car will not hit the rev limiter, it will auto upshift and it will not let the engine labor by auto downshifting - even when in S and you have engaged Manual mode by up or down shifting. In the Edge you will probably not damage the engine or gearbox with the paddles so feel free to experiment with it till you have it figured out.
I also have a '16 Titanium and I didn't know about the potential rear glass problem. It's my dealer who told me about it and offered to do the required modification at no charge. No problem with the steering wheel though.
The manual states:
With your vehicle in drive (D), the paddle shifters provide temporary manual control.
The system determines when temporary manual control is no longer in use and returns to automatic control.
It then finishes this section with:
Note: The system stays in manual control until you make another shift selection (for example, drive [D])
***The manual does not state what temporary means. Worse is states the opposite at the end.
How do the shifters function?***
I took the car out on some back roads and tried the select shift for about an hour and did the d s d & s d s modes for about an hour and I can't tell much difference .It still hangs in gears and down shifts w/rev match. Only Drive allows normal upshifts. Manual down shifting is what the shift paddles are for.
Maybe. I think it looks kinda like a torch. Has two lines coming off it. It has an electrical plug in that comes in from the main three brain box plugs. To the left of the brake fluid reservoir. In most Edge engine bay pics, it is right below the two bolts on the windshield cowling.
Right below the right hand bolt:
At least I have a name to look up in the factory book. One of the locking clips broke off and I want to try and replace it Thursday when I'm by the dealer.
You mean the EVAP purge valve?
Some things never change lol. Pinching the gasket on the firewall valve cover was a common problem on the Gen 1/2 SHOs as well. So some took to installing studs to guide the cover on and set in place with a dab of Permatex in that corner.
