    Bad APIM or ACM or....?

    Do you have a phone paired to it?
  2. Thanks for the info. Since I wasn't able to test drive it before I bought it (I had to have hand controls installed afterwards) there are a ton of little things that I never thought to check into.
  3. Thanks Omar. I know what Forscan is, I am not sure that is something I would want to mess with. Do you know if this is something that a dealership could or would change with their equipment?
  4. I've been stuck in a wheelchair for the last 20 some years. When I drive, I have to take my chair apart and pull it across my lap to put it on the passenger seat. I recline the seat so I don't get hung up on the steering wheel. My 2013 Edge drivers seat will recline all the way until it hits on the back seat. I don't think there is an actual limit, it sounds like unless I let off the switch the motor would keep turning. On my 2019, it seems like it will only go about 3/4 of the way back then it stops on its own - I am wondering if there is any way at all to adjust the limit on the recline so it will go back a little further?
  5. Sorry to dig up an old thread. This one kind of touches on 2 things I was trying to learn about. The first thing is with our 2013 SEL, now that my daughter is driving it, whenever she connects her iphone it goes into the scheduled maintenance reboot thing. I've only noticed this happen a few times over the years for me, but I use an android. I noticed a few mentions in this thread about Ford blaming issues on the phone? Second thing is about our 2019 ambient lighting. I was just wondering if there is any way to change the color for the courtesy entry from the default light blue? It seems the color change is only for when the car is running?

    kinda old kinda new

    I've been a member for a while with my 2013 Edge SEL, but haven't been around much. I just purchased a low mileage used 2019 Edge Titanium, so we could give the 2013 to our daughter. I think I am more excited for my daughter than I am for me 😊
  7. Does anyone have a picture of a 2019/2020 edge with the license plate bracket removed? For some weird reason I just don't like the looks of the bracket, and my state doesn't require it. I'm looking at buying a used one, they all seem to have the bracket. I know it will need the rivets drilled out to remove, I can't tell if there are holes in just the painted part of the bumper or the black plastic portion as well?

    another PTU question

    Yep purchased new, just now starting to look into the additional maintenance items. The ptu thing I wasn't even really aware of until I googled the smell
  9. Sorry to add more to the PTU heap, just looking for some help in making an informed decision. I have a 13 Edge with 61K miles. I recently started noticing the smell best described as propane or natural gas, so of course I googled it. That led me to all the issues people are having with the PTU. The smell is the only symptom I am noticing right now, I am not noticing any leak spots on the floor, or any noise or performance issues. I have an appointment with a local independent shop that has a good reputation (the local Ford dealer does not). The plan is for them to check for any leaks and go from there. I am leaving next Friday for vacation, the drive is 800 miles each way, the weather will be hot. Since I am not seeing any other symptoms, if there is not a major leak would I likely be OK just having the old fluid pulled out and replaced with fresh if it doesn't have any chunks in it? What is the point where replacing the unit is necessary? Not sure what to do! Thanks
  10. the clicking is coming from the engine compartment near the starter
  11. Tail lights do not flash with the clicking.
  12. I have a 2013 Edge (49,900 miles), and I am wondering if I am having a similar issue. I started having problems last week with a dead battery, so I took it to a repair shop (not a Ford dealer) and they put it on some kind of tester that indicated my battery was toast. I had the battery replaced, and no problems starting since. However, my wife started noticing a high frequency ringing noise coming from the vehicle with it not running, key out of the ignition. I cannot hear it. Yesterday, I noticed a random clicking noise again with the engine not running, key out of the ignition. I think the clicking is the starter solenoid. Between the noise my wife is hearing, and the clicking I am hearing, this seems to me like there is something staying active? I am not seeing any warning messages about the shifter not being in park, but I am not sure what else would be causing this issue?

    fledgex & www - Thanks for the welcomes! Bt- I was hoping to avoid needing to attach anything, but I might have to. Probably just try to find a screw somewhere on the gate I could use to anchor a pull strap from. Before I do that though, I am going to ask the dealer their thoughts on a shorter strut substitute. As for modifications, the only thing I needed was a set of hand controls to operate the brake/gas pedal. These can range from fairly simple to complex, depending on everything from how much you want to spend, to the severity of the disability. The set I use is pretty basic, and Ford actually has a program that will pay up to $1000 towards the cost to purchase and install when purchasing the vehicle new. If your cousin can get set up with something to drive, it will be one of the best things he could do for himself. If his paralysis is waist down, he shouldn't need anything special. If you have any other questions, just fire away.

    OK! If anyone read all that from my first post, I did end up buying a new 2103 Edge SEL about a month or so ago! My concern with not being able to get in/out from my wheelchair turned out to be not an issue at all. I love the vehicle, and am sure to have many questions for the members here. I'll start here with 3 that come to mind right now! 1. I did not get the power lift gate option, so when the gate is fully open, I cannot quite reach the hand holds to be able to pull it shut. Are there any shorter struts I could buy and have installed that would stop the gate from opening quite so far? 2. All the black plastic trim that runs along the bottoms of the outsides of the doors, and then the rest of the way around under the front & rear bumpers - I don't know if there is some kind of residue built up so soon or what, but the trim doesn't look too good already - are there any products recommended to be applied here to bring the black back out? The last time I cared about what my vehicle looked like, Armor All was the go to product for stuff like this..... 3. The USB thumb drive I play audio files from - everytime I start the vehicle, I get a message that the drive is not supported and to remove it. The music plays fine from it, and I can browse all the songs, albums, etc. it's just annoying. Is it a matter of randomly finding a different drive that works, or is there some type of formatting that needs to be done to it? Thanks, Tim
  15. I'm wondering about this myself. I have a 13 sel, and the my temp button does not turn amber when I touch it. It does make the sound though. Should it light up or not? Thanks!
