  1. Hey guys- Not sure if this is the correct forum for this. About a month ago, 4 different times I started the truck I got a "adaptive steering fault" warning. I called the dealer and was told that I could only bring it in when the light was lit up. It wouldn't store the code. Pretty hard to go to the dealer when it wasn't happening all the time. It did happen over the course of 2 days. Fast forward to yesterday and had it come on twice. Now it is off again. Has anyone had this issue? Thanks Forgot to add: 2016 Sport

    Tire pressure - 21" rims

    I'll start by saying I never check my tire pressure. My bad, just never do. Anyways out of curiosity I checked what they were at according to the in vehicle gauge. Cold, they were 3 with 30 psi and 1 was 31 psi. I checked the door jamb and recommended pressure is 35 psi. So 3 questions. Does everyone with these rims and tires maintain the 35 psi? And at what psi would the car tell they are low? Is the 30 psi really bad for the tires? Thanks!
  3. Personally, I think AA has a buggy connection in general. I've used maybe a half dozen usb cables and while at the beginning AA works good, it is short lived and have to find a new cord. Have no idea why it does it. It'll connect for a couple seconds, then disappears. A lot of connecting and re-connecting. I think I read that version 3.0 has updated AA.

    I'm of no help, but if you're not a member of Ford Edge World Wide on Facebook, you should be. Lots of people there to help. And I know somebody will have an answer for you. https://www.facebook.com/groups/fordedgedriversunited/

    The problem is that the maps are provided by a 3rd party, and both Ford and the 3rd party don't seem to care about them being outdated. Really strange as the updates cost us money, you would think this company would be interested in making money.

    The maps are so out of date it is sad. I'm guessing at least 4 years old.

    Adding Bass

    Hey not sure if you decided on something, but just wanted to share my experience. I had this http://www.bestbuy.com/site/kicker-hideaway-8-subwoofer-with-enclosure-and-integrated-150w-amplifier-black/3526208.p?skuId=3526208for 2 weeks and returned it. It did add more bass, but not nearly enough to make a difference for $300. What I ended up with was http://www.bestbuy.com/site/kicker-cx-series-cxa6001-1200w-class-d-mono-amplifier-with-adjustable-kickeq-bass-boost-black/4781400.p?skuId=4781400 and this https://www1.crutchfield.com/p_206VCWC122/Kicker-44VCWC122.html?tp=112. WAY better bass than the 8". I know you said she was worried about taking up cargo space, but it's pretty compact and doesn't weigh too much to remove if you need added space for a trip. Hope this helps.

    Tire pressure - 21" rims

    Thanks for the info! I really never had paid too much attention before, but these tires are expensive! I've put in in Google calendar to check them monthly from now on.

    Hey just noticed recently that the skip button is no longer on the Sync 3 screen. Version 2.0 is missing the button. Used to be there, not sure if the update took it away. Anyways, the skip or forward button on the steering wheel does not function either. Is there anyway to skip now without using a thumbs down?

    Upgrading Amp

    Hey Shawn- This is the only other thing I bought (except for the bass control). Not sure if the kit included it or not. Sorry couldn't be more helpful. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/kicker-z-series-2-channel-amplifier-installation-kit/9906707.p?skuId=9906707

    Upgrading Amp

    I too wasn't happy with the sound. I wanted to replace all the speakers and add a 10" sub. Talked to guys at Best Buy and they talked me into leaving the speakers already in the car alone, and just adding an amp and a sub. I ended up getting a Kicker 12" in enclosed box and an amp. I turned the bass on the Sony system all the way down and just use the 12 for bass. It works perfect for me and I think the sound is great for the total price paid. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/kicker-cx-series-cxa6001-1200w-class-d-mono-amplifier-with-adjustable-kickeq-bass-boost-black/4781400.p?skuId=4781400 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/kicker-comps12-12-single-voice-coil-2-ohm-loaded-subwoofer-enclosure-black/9065468.p?skuId=9065468

    Adaptive steering fault

    What did they replace last time? I had the clock spring and a new steering wheel replaced early this year and no issues again.

    Adaptive steering fault

    Thanks for the offer. I don't anything to tell which software I have. Frankly I'm tired of having to steer the dealership in the right direction each step of this process. I really wish the communication between the dealership technicians and Ford was stronger. I have only owned Ford products in my life. I traded in 2009 ecpape that had zero issues EVER. Now this issue, while only one issue, is just testing me. MAny phone calls and visits since last May about this issue and still jot resolved. I'm not one to say "i'll never come back" after an issue or 2, but this is just constant ball dropping by both Ford and the dealer.

    Adaptive steering fault

    I get all of that. My thing is I think the headscratching started a week ago, with them having no clue on how to enable this. Why wasn't the dealer being "offered" these resources before? I'm really not sure whose fault it is at this point. I'm thinking they are a little inept at the dealership if they can't figure this out, but ford says I need to go back to this one again.

    Adaptive steering fault

    I did call Ford. They made a case and told me to call the service manager directly and that they will offer all their resources to the dealership. Shouldn't they have been doing that since the beginning?

    Adaptive steering fault

    Ok I'm going to get this thread back in line. So I got my car back a while back. Everything seemed fine. Then I read on here that somebody got their vehicle back and the adaptive steering selections were greyed out. Went to check mine, and sure enough mine were also. Been going on 2 weeks now that the dealership is "looking" into this issue to get it resolved. Beyond frustrating!

    And actually, I wasn't scared driving it with the wheel like that. It wasn't loose or anything, that was just the new center. Just if something did happen I didn't want to be liable. They actually wanted me to come back the next or following day when they would have a loaner for me. After thinking about it for a bit, the service manager miraculously found a car for me.

    Adaptive steering fault

    I assume they are seperate parts. On my 2nd or 3rd visit (in September), they determined that I needed the clock spring but Ford didn't have an updated part for it. I called in November. Still no part. Finally end of December the wheel issue happened and drove it straight to the dealer. Couple days later it was determined that I needed a new steering wheel (also?), but they were back-ordered. Why couldn't they just pull one off the line? I dunno. Like I said fingers crossed.

    Adaptive steering fault

    Finally (crossing fingers) my saga is over. Clock spring and new steering wheel for me. It was in the shop this last time for 13 days and got it back on Tuesday. No new error msgs yet! The messages came and went many times, but this last time when I brought it in my steering wheel had not been straight. Gave me a 17 Fusion loaner car. It was nice, but super pumped to get my sport back! This was steering driving straight!

    Yes, I have the current version.

    Sync 3 Voicemail Playback

    Ok. Tried it again this morning in my loaner Fusion. It did NOT work correctly again. Stops after 6 seconds. I did get it to play completely through after that though. I reset bluetooth on my phone and played again. Not sure if resetting the bluetooth helped it. My guess actually though is if you have already heard the message, and attempt to replay, it works fine. Only issue is when it's a new message. I'll keep playing with it.
