    2011 Edge Factory HID's Dull

    Has anyone changed the factory HIDs to something brighter? The headlights in this thing seem dull and terrible at night. Should I convert them to LEDs or are my HIDs just getting old an weak?

    I ordered some new HID bulbs and see how those work out.

    2011 Edge Factory HID's Dull

    Nope, I've never replaced them. My wife drove it a few nights ago and mentioned how dull they are compared to the LEDs in my 2017 F150. Are new HIDs comparable to LEDs?

    *Click* Noise when accelerating from stop

    At one time I had a clicking or popping from the front end when accelerating from a stop or when going from park to drive or reverse. The dealer replaced both front wheel bearings and hubs and the noise never returned.

    2012 Limited pulling right

    Does it have the 20" wheels with Pirelli's on them? Had mine in the shop for 2 weeks while they aligned, realigned and adjusted the sub-frame. The fix was to replace the Pirelli's with Michelins.

    Dome Lights Stopped Working

    If all the other interior lights come on when the door is opened, then it sounds like it's just the bulb.

    Grinding sound and feel from anti lock brakes

    Mines been doing the same thing and the grinding was becoming more consistent. We could tell it was coming from at least one of the rear wheels but every time I checked the brakes, all looked fine with plenty of brake pad life remaining. Yesterday, I decided to pull the passenger rear wheel and once again, brakes looked fine. This time however, I made the decision to pull the caliper off and check the inner pad since it was difficult to inspect on the Edge. Not expecting to find anything wrong, I was surprised when the inner brake pad was down to the rivets and the outer pad had plenty of life. I had to replace the rotor on the passenger side since it was deeply grooved and new pads on both the rears. Although the drivers side rear brakes were fine, they also show evidence of unequal wear but at least the rotor was in good shape. Car no longer grinds and stops great but I wonder why with all the technology built into the Edge, Ford seems to have forgotten to put in something as basic as brake sensors. No warnings or codes that I feel should have given advanced warning that something was wrong. I hope this gives everyone a place to look as the culprit for their Edge grinding noise. Best of luck.

  14. I also have a 2011 Edge with the 20" wheels but the Pirelli's caused my car to drift to the right. After driving 4 other new 2011's with 20's and Pirelli's on the lot just after I bought it, the GM at our dealership replaced my tires with 4 Michelins and the problem has never returned. My recommendation although much more expensive than Pirelli's are Michelin's. Good Luck! Ron

    Back up camera - guide lines have disappeared!

    I had the same problem with my 2011 Edge and the software was up to date. Backup guides had disappeared and all the normal fixes went out the window. The fix was to replace the APIM or Accessory Protocol Interface Module which is basically the entire Sync computer behind the screen. Since it's been replaced ALL of my Sync issues have disappeared and Sync works flawlessly! I'm glad it was under warranty because I understand it's quite expensive. Good Luck!

    Ford Edge engine noise getting worse

    No way! Even with the sync problems it's still a great car with great features! Drives like a sports car and is nice looking. That said, I am hopeful though that a release comes out that stabilizes the system and that Ford starts to use Garmin Maps instead of the crap we have now. TR

    Hardwire radar detector - where to connect hot wire?

    Here are some pictures that show how I hard wired our radar detector into the fuse (#35) panel.I used a mini fuse with a tap and then attached the ground to an existing bolt that already had other grounds connected to it. It works perfectly and turns on the car is running and off when it's not. Entire job took me less than an hour and I was in no rush at all. Good Luck, TR

    2011 Ford Edge Limited Alignment

    Any update from others that were having this issue? The tires were the fix!!

    2011 Ford Edge Limited Alignment

    We purchased our 2011 Ford Edge Limited about 2 weeks ago and my only complaint is that it pulls to the right. The first time we brought it to the dealer with this complaint, they swapped the front wheels but it still pulled to the right. The second time, they actually aligned the vehicle but it still pulled to the right. The third time, they swapped the wheels and tires from another brand new Edge Limited and it still pulled to the right. The fourth time, they aligned it again and guess what, it still pulls to the right. The General Manager of the Dealership is now involved and a Ford Engineer will be coming out next week, hopefully with some answers. Since all the numbers are in spec and I have copies to prove it, we have no idea what is causing this pull. Has anyone else had this problem that knows the secret code to fix it? Thanks, TR
