    Check Charging System alert 2013 3.5L

    Bad chassis ground?

    No Response to throttle pedal

    I’d say throttle body is the most likely culprit.

    2013 Edge, 2.0 oil leak

    The oil on the tailgate is from the oil leaking out while driving. The sensor does not measure oil level only oil pressure so it may or may not be bad. My guess is they used the wrong gaskets or I stalled them incorrectly or left something loose allowing the oil to leak out rapidly.
  4. That’s the ONLY way to do it!

    Car won't rev past ~4k in neutral/park

    It’s a safety feature. First vehicle I saw that did this was a 2000 Lincoln LS. Protects the engine and transmission in case you decide to redline it in neutral and drop it into gear.

    Swapping 20" wheels for 17"

    Not that big a difference. This is the 2013 Edge 17” vs 20” OEM tires and wheels.

    Swapping 20" wheels for 17"

    But you can put whatever size 17” tires that match the factory 20”. Not limited to the OEM sizes.

    Swapping 20" wheels for 17"

    Not if the tire diameter is the same.
  9. So one fob works now but the other doesn’t? Or is it only working intermittently? Parking toll passes or cards with chips can cause interference.

    whats the Grey Car Icon on info display?

    I think that shows doors open, etc.
  11. Did you try a different fob? If neither fob works with fresh batteries then it must be the receiver but that’s probably a dealer visit.

    Driver headlight no power.

    There should be relays in the power distribution box in the engine bay. Could also be the smart junction box.
  13. Then maybe RFID is the backup system, but if your fob battery gets too weak then you won’t be able to start the vehicle with the fob in your pocket. It will say key not detected and then you have to put it in the special slot that allows the rfid to be read passively. Even Ford says the first thing to do if you get key not detected is to change the battery.
  14. The RFID does work without a battery which is why you can start it with a dead battery but it has to be very close to the transceiver. To work further away it needs the fob battery.
