  1. Since this type of thread hasn't been started yet, thought I'd give it a little push. Very popular on other forums, hope to make it a success here as well! Posts should generally be short & sweet, detailed postings better placed in their own thread or added on to existing appropriate threads. That's the idea. I replaced the fog lights on my Edge yesterday. They were looking somewhat anemic compared to my Osram NB Plus headlights. Went with Optilux (Hella) H11 Extreme Yellow bulbs for visibility. At least I can make out I have fog lights on now! Still to be tested at night. Next up, polish the fog covers to maximize the light.

    Frustrated, no heat driver side.

    Check blower fan operation and coolant level. Coolant should be at the top of the COLD FILL RANGE for best results. When was the last time you changed the cabin air filter?

    Bad brake booster?

    Good to know

    Gaz smell!!!!

    Is it gas or propane smell? Is it under hard acceleration or under cruise / mild acceleration, as long as A/C is on? The exhaust flaps behind the bumper cover may be stuck open. The flex pipe in the exhaust may be cracked or broken. Propane smell usually happens on AWD vehicles when the PTU fluid leaks out.

    Wiring diagrams book for my EDGE 2017

    You can subscribe to any number of online services that will give you access to shop manual type stuff. Chilton, Mitchell, Alldata etc. Plus you would gain access to TSBs and Recalls relevant to your specific vehicle. You can also purchase a PDF / searchable PDF of the shop manual, I have not tried that route though.

    Downpipes (2016 Edge Sport)

    Not only is it hard to initially source the product, but then you have to work equally hard to find a replacement. Kudos for breaking down the walls.
  7. Excellent info and trackdown. Thanks for adding your experience to the forum.

    Motor will crank but not start

    If the failure is intermittent, there could still be a problem with the starter (e.g., internal short). Did you by any chance observe the RPMs at the time when it was spinning but not engaging? When you had the starter tested, was there a readout of how many amps it was pulling? The expected values for a 3.5/3.7 setup: General Specifications Item Specification Normal engine cranking speed 200-250 rpm Starting circuit maximum voltage drop (Engine at normal operating temperature) 0.5 volt Starter motor maximum load current draw 800 amps Starter motor no-load current draw 60-80 amps Starter motor normal load current draw 130-190 amps

    Battery Saver Message

    The longterm thing to do in such cases is keep the vehicle on a tender.

    2014 edge limited tuner

    I know the X4 does, not sure about the Livewire, best to ask an SCT tuner like Unleashed Tuning to make sure. Have the strategy code handy.

    Motor will crank but not start

    How many miles on your Edge? Don't typically see issues unless located in the "hot zone" - Arizona, Louisiana, Florida, Texas or the like. Failures are really rare. Have you checked the battery and cabling?

    Grinding noise only when all wheel drive is working

    Check the RDU and the driveshaft in that case. RDU is not nearly as frequent a failure point as the PTU, but it does fail albeit with the same symptoms as the PTU. Symptoms might also fit a sticking caliper, need to remove and inspect. Rear calipers more frequently have an issue than the fronts since they serve doubleduty as master brakes and parking brake. Especially if you park on a hill and use the parking brake. That is the brakes locked up after getting hot, heatsoaking, and causing all kinds of problems if left that way longterm, especially in humid weather or freezing conditions.

    Grinding noise only when all wheel drive is working

    Grinding can also come from ABS components / traction control in action. It is hard to distinguish traction control from AWD and ABS as they all work together to provide their functionality. Passenger side would be cause to check the PTU fluid more closely, maybe run a test for ferrous particles.. How many miles do you have on it? It MAY be perfectly normal tho, given that you have inspected the usual suspects and found nothing.

    anyone here have a 2020 4cyl?

    I will hit the revs in my 3.5 (2007) and enjoy the engine growl. But seriously, Ford is also biasing powertrain performance, so I wouldn't put it past them to make the 2.0 look good while the 3.5 languishes. Just the way it goes as older products get decommissioned.

    Water Pump Failure Prevention

    Modern coolants have water pump lubrication and rust preventatives built in. See Prestone's Cor-Guard for an example. No need for adding such products. Just change coolant regularly. As far as police interceptors, they live in high stress environments. They are mandated to have PTU fluid changes every 30K, but police depts prefer 10K because that's what gets them a troublefree PTU. 50K can be overly long considering how much idling these vehicles are subject to.

    Wrench symbol on dash.

    Pull codes even if there is no CEL. That might provide clues to what is actually the matter. At this point, it could be trans related (TSS/OSS), engine related (plugs & coils/PCM), or ABS related (tone ring/wheel speed sensor).

    Diagnose this noise?

    could be wheel bearings, yes, already. has happened on gen 2 vehicles before. at those speeds, i would not rule them out. especially if turning left vs turning right at those speeds makes a good bit of difference in the sound. tires you can try to rule out via rotation and balancing. but if all 4 are defective, you have a conundrum.

    Engine Start after Flat Towing with Key on

    Fuse 65 in the Battery Junction Box / underhood fuse box.
  19. Wow. That is not nice. Could have said it a lot better than you did. Best of luck with your research, hope you find what you are looking for.

    Misfire Cylinder 1

    May just need new plugs. Tuned vehicles burn up plugs a lot faster than stock. No other codes, right? The arrow in the diagram points to the belt side of the engine, or the "front" of the engine.

    Engine Start after Flat Towing with Key on

    Do you notice any fuel level changes between startups? Could it be the brake system is starting up the PCM? Also could be a fault with the transmission range sensor, even stray voltage maybe, that causes the vehicle to think it is in a particular gear when in reality it is not. From the 2014 towing guide: (3) All-wheel-drive/Intelligent 4WD vehicles cannot be towed on a dolly. (4) Maximum speed with automatic transmission is 65 mph. (5) Start the engine and allow it to run for five (5) minutes at the beginning of each day and every six (6) hours thereafter. Emergency towing In case of a roadside emergency with a disabled vehicle (without access to wheel dollies, car hauling trailer, or flatbed transport vehicle) your vehicle (regardless of transmission powertrain configuration) can be flat towed (all wheels on the ground) under the following conditions: • Vehicle is facing forward so that it is being towed in a forward direction. • Place the transmission in N (Neutral). Refer to Brake-shift interlock in the Driving chapter for specific instructions if you cannot move the gear shift lever into N (Neutral). • Maximum speed is not to exceed 35 mph (56 km/h). • Maximum distance is 50 miles (80 km).

    2008 Edge stalls and won't restart after turning off

    The intake temp sensor? That is built into the MAF sensor. Almost never see it go wrong unless the MAF is severely degraded, and almost never a code unless the MAF is disconnected. I guess you could check to make sure the fuses and relays are firmly seated in the fusebox, but these symptoms do not seem typical of that either. Could be a crank sensor, you would think it would throw a code tho ... Fuel pumps might cause the stall, then restart after it has had time to cool down. Do you hear it prime when you turn the ignition key to ON (but not START/RUN)?

    2008 Edge stalls and won't restart after turning off

    What are the codes? My guess would be throttle body as well. The sensor is available separately as you can see on rockauto.com. Thing with throttle body codes tho is that they are temporary and are erased upon restart. So if the stall happens again, read codes with ignition on, but do not attempt to restart.
