  1. Maybe you can "press and hold the + paddle" for a few seconds. This might exit SelectShift. [This works on an 2019 ST... not sure your MY/Model. Might just be for new 8 speed?]

    2019 Edge ST Finally got a build date

    Wait, you ordered one? Nobody (not even sales people) should drive it. I'd be pissed if it had more than 10 miles! Mine had one test drive by a customer and two by sales people (5 packed in it, then drew straws to see who drove!). With three test drives, there were 29 miles on mine. No leaks on mine. Built on the 1st day. Fingers crossed (check once a week... maybe should check daily!).

    New ST Owners (Tips, Tricks & Issues)

    Hi all new ST owners! I thought I'd start a thread with 'new things', 'where's my cheese' or 'issues'. 1. Heated Steering Wheel setting toggle On/Off. This setting is very hidden (Climate>Menu>Heated Steering Wheel). Solution: FORScan APIM module (used the non-AsBuilt module selection, then chose 'Show'). Downside: Sync appears to only start on the Home screen. 2. Rear windows One-Touch down. Is this present in your vehicle? The icons on the switch suggest they should go down with a hard push. Mine don't (have an appointment to have a Tech look at them). Yes, I've tried to 'Re-learn' by following the manual's directions. 3. Windows Up with remote long press after locking via remote. Only Down is available from the factory. FORScan does allow this change. Need to set both the Driver and Passenger separately. FORScan: followed the instructions/settings on this page (mirrors work too but there are better places for instructions). Anything in the IPC doesn't allow editing (either Ford encrypted it or FORScan can't do it yet). If you know of another method for any of the above, I'd be glad to hear (try).

    It can look like this with FORScan (or your dealer doing it... apparently some dealers do this by default).

    Got the Blue(s)?

    Finally got my Edge ST yesterday

    Agreed on shopping around. Some in my area are straight MSRP, others $1k, $2k and even $3k off.

    I'm 50/50 for it working on the 1st kick. The delay is frustrating. Sometimes I kick again... but by then, it is already closing. So it stops! I'd rather use the key fob or button.

    Yup, it's off in my ST. Buy a $30 USB FORScan device (ELM327 is best), use Windows (iOS can't edit) and the FORScan application (www.forscan.org). Toggle one box (or Hex if you like). Off and I don't care about the noise cancellation that is apparently also disabled. I hope to record the sound with it off vs. piped in noise.

    Yup, saw that last week. I love the matte black look of the car (stealth-like). Looks like a beast to carry that rig. Seems like it would tip over. High speeds too.
  10. Edge ST: has a button to either turn On/Off Stability Control OR Sport Mode (hidden: press twice).

    No moving parts. Just a spray nozzle. The camera bracket is 'split' at the top. *Don't seem to have the ability to upload a video (or any attachments). Video on Google Drive

    Garage opener: agreed. For me, I had to then reprogram my wife's Fusion (seemed to have taken over that frequency). Exhaust: this can be disabled with FORScan but that might also disable noise canceling (there are two boxes to toggle so maybe not?).

    #2... wow, you are correct. No 2 detents so no One-Touch, bummer. No 180 rear camera, only the front. No mention of a rear camera washer in the manual but there appears to be one there. It is activated with windshield washing just like the front camera. Just tested it and soap/foam was on the lens but didn't see the nozzle pop-out.

    2019 Edge ST Finally got a build date

    Ready.Shop.Go Quote was 'off' by $500. In my area, there is $500 cash and an additional $500 for non-Ford Credit loan (or cash). The salesperson tried to 'explain' that my number was the same as his. I'm not stupid. I could see that he was giving me $500 for a non-Ford Credit loan (at a high % so he could later 'find' a better one and lower the monthly payment). Also, was $2,300 lower in a trade-in. Dealer #1: $3114 below list. $19,800 trade. $481/mo Dealer #2: $2413 below list (but only $1913 on quote in dealer). $17500 trade. +$500 for red paint. $600/mo (higher than 1.9% Ford Credit) Dealer #1 won. I'm sure that #2 would have moved on the trade (#1 did a bit). No movement on the list price though (but I did hear that Ford was giving extra incentives to the dealers. Mine was trying to get some volume in STs so next year, they'd get more). There were lots of interest in the ST. As I was getting ready to sign papers, another salesperson came by and asked where the ST was. His clients ended up just looking at it while it was getting cleaned up.

    Both ST's I drove had the 21" all season tires (brake packages haven't hit the dealers yet). Got the black one... the 2nd dealer (red one, which looks so sharp!) was sneaky with trade numbers and dealer discounts (didn't match Ford's website) and we just walked out of the dealership.

    Test drove an ST last night ($3k off list, $500 incentive). Not a long or exciting route. Stiffer than a Sport. Still buying one. Another dealer has a 'extra' Ruby Red one (customer ordered but didn't want it??? What!). Black or Red is the question now (funny reflection in the hood from a light post)

    2019 Edge ST Update

    The article poorly worded. The 21" wheels can be separately ordered in the US, alone $995 or part of the $2695 package. Probably due to the 'Summer only tires'... for the brake package not being offered in Canada.

    2019 Edge ST Update

    Anyone have delivery dates? Local dealers are saying late Sept or early Oct. It's now end of Sept... going nuts waiting.
  19. I've owned multiple VW's. All had a programable number of 'Lane Change' blinks. That said, the 'USA' software didn't allow the consumer to make any changes. A cable and software (reverse engineering) allowed the change to either a different country (UK) then the setting appeared on a console.

    Max A/C reset temp

    Does anyone else have an issue with the Max A/C setting 'taking over' the temp settings? I have to reset the temp number every time I use the 'Max A/C' button (from LO to 72 is quite a few + pushes). Note: I also have a 2013 Ford Fusion where the setting is restored to the previous setting... just pressing 'Auto' temp restores back to 72 (or previous temp). I have tried a 'Master Reset' with no luck. Thanks

    Max A/C reset temp

    Yuck... just got the Fusion two weeks ago so maybe it is a new(er) software. Hoping I guess. Summer is soon over and I'll forget about it.

    Cupholders

    Solution for 'large' bottle => Upside down. Of course you need to have the cap very tight. I too am not impressed with the size. Got tired of the bottle rolling away.
  23. U-haul has a great offer. Order online only $50. Plus for only $5 more, you get a lifetime warranty (I know... who owns a car for a lifetime). But it does cover collisions/rust/etc. Recently got one from them. Just as you need, for a bike rack (no lights).

    73mm BBK throttle body works!!

    $385 on Amazon w/free ship too.

    Fog Lights anyone?

    In PA, I'm fairly sure that you can only have 'two' active light sources. So with headlights and 'fogs' (not really fogs), the 'lightbar' would make 'three'. A ticket might be issued. Also, I don't think a center mounted light is allowed. :-(
