  1. I was loading a U-haul connected to my ST last week and I saw the lights go on on the trailer for no reason. I didn't think much of it at the time, then I saw this thread.
  2. https://repairpal.com/estimator/ford/edge/sunroof-motor-replacement-cost That site says the motor replacement is $544 to $632 parts and labor. $15,000 sounds outrageous, more than the vehicle is worth. Shop around.

  4. That is one of the reasons I carry a jump start battery in the car. The other is I hate seeing people hook up 2 cars via jumper cables, there is so much that can go wrong and both batteries will suffer. IF I see someone in a parking lot with the hood up (and I have time) I will usualy ask if they need a jump start.

    Tire truth?

    https://treadconnection.com/plugged-tires/ 14,000 will show significant enough ware on any tire to change the overall size enough to mess up the AWD system. Didn't you get the road hazard warranty?
  6. I was experiencing the same issues in my '19 ST at about 21K, I wasn't going to take a trip to the dealer for them to tell me it was fine, I waited until it would not start one morning. Jump started and drove to the dealer. I saw the tech come and put paperwork on my service writers desk after parking my car in the service lane, the service writer wasn't at his desk so I went over and read the diagnosis: Battery cracked and leaking, replaced. Online service history says: SERVICES PERFORMED Electrical TOTAL COST $0
  7. It turns off the alarm telling you your car is too close to the drive thru sign. So that you are not distracted whilst ordering your favorite fast food meal or hot beverage.
  8. Why not something like this instead? https://www.amazon.com/iJDMTOY-Tow-Receiver-Brake-Hole/dp/B07VKCW64R?th=1 slides in to your hitch receiver and plugs in to the trailer light hookup, no fuss. Cheaper?

    Hello! Considering 2019 Ford Edge ST

    Welcome from a 2019 ST owner. Buy it - buy it now! (clean Carfax and everything else checks out of course) I won't tell you to have fun with your new ride, I don't need to.
  10. My guess would be that the recharge you put in leaked out the same way as the refrigerant that was in it, try a can of the recharge with the die in it to see where the leak is.
  11. Try pairing another phone to sync, a friend or relative, doesn't matter you can always delete it. Delete your phone from sync first. If the issue persists on the just paired phone then you've narrowed it down to sync, otherwise it could be a setting on your phone.
  12. Hmmm.....as a 38 year IT guy. your choice of phone OS makes me sad. 😔 (😁)
  13. 2-5 satellites seems to me like a very low number, where is the vehicle located? With an older unit the gps almanac has to be updated for the unit to track the satellites orbits. The almanac is transmitted every 12.5 minutes, so after a hard reset like you did, the cold gps start may take some time. If you are in a city with tall buildings you may be having trouble getting the almanac as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_to_first_fix#:~:text=Almanac data can be received,for up to 180 days.
  14. I really hate that android auto strips Waze of the useful features that make it unique. So I found a phone mount that requires no modification, and zero installation. When not using it it slides off and is put in that top compartment. It's magnetic attachment, but changing the phone attachment to a gripper is easy. It's inexpensive, I paid less than $12 for it. Seems Solid and sturdy. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08L7TCZJL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It is intended for the vent clip but I turned it over so that the opening of the vent clamp was at the bottom, you will need to extend the C Hook out quite a way with the locking knob. Then I just slip the C hook underneath the top dash panel where it goes into the compartment, close the lid and it will stay there, nice and secure (YMMV). Your Phone, depending on the size, might block your view of the upper left corner of the center screen The home button and the drivers side set temperature are obscured for me, but I can still press the home button.
  15. My 2019 has a 4G hotspot, but I don't believe the onboard navigation system requires any connectivity. The maps are updated via wi-fi or usb drive, the traffic updates are broadcast by SiriusXM Travel Link.
