  1. I use FORScan Lite to monitor the exact ECT. Engine Coolant Temperature. Also Transmission Fluid Temp. It is a pain to reconnect the phone and app every time I start the engine though. I have seen the actual temp displayed in a 2022 Ford Bronco. Along with actual voltage. Would like to see that in my Edge.

    [update/conclusion] White smoke on acceleration

    I have a 2019 also with a 7-31-2019 build date. I had an addendum in the owners manual regarding the upgraded coolant.

    [update/conclusion] White smoke on acceleration

    Just an FYI. The correct coolant should be Motorcraft Yellow VC-13DL-G (prediluted) or VC-13-G. Not the Motorcraft Gold.
  5. The 3.5 V6 has an internal water-pump and if it fails it leaks into the oil and if not caught immediately it can destroy the engine. If you catch it right away or decide to proactively change out the water-pump, it is a more complicated and expensive job. Prior to 2019 (I believe) the 2.0 EB has had a coolant intrusion issue, where coolant leaks into a cylinder. Some people have been able to have the engine replaced under warranty. One thing recommended in your 3.5 is to change the coolant from the factory orange to the latest Motorcraft Yellow.

    Haz do you happen to have Order Guides for Ford's Police Vehicles?

    Edge Lift Gate

    They are on the bottom of my Gen 2's doors also. I believe the primary purpose is drainage.

    Windshield sunshade

    How does that one fold? I am assuming in half and then it twists into a smaller outline ? I use a nice, sturdy, roll-up, but it is awkward to handle.

    Cup holder lighting

    I have had a couple minor issues in my 2019 ST were I lost ambient lighting and also power to the front 12V outlet. Once was after my battery died, another time was after the trans was reflashed. Both times I ran ForScan and found codes that basically said components lost communication. After clearing the codes everything worked again.
  10. Rabbitslayer, when you read all of those codes mentioned, were you able to clear them? After my battery died and the dealer checked it out and said everything appeared to be okay, I ran FORscan Lite and had almost two handfuls of codes related to "..Lost communication with ..." I was able to clear all of them, they didn't return and everything appeared to be good. A year later I go to the dealer to have my trans updated to the latest TSB and then I notice my interior lighting wasn't working correctly. I ran another full scan and this time I only saw a few "...Lost communication with ....module" codes. Again I clear everything and the interior lighting returns to normal. It appears the interfaces between all of these modules and systems are rather wonky. If you can, try resetting any errors that you see (after documenting them) and see what happens.
  11. I had a similar problem with my 2019 ST. Battery only died completely once. But I got the 'going to sleep' warning about 5 times. Dealer checked it and said everything shows fine. Hasn't occurred in a while, but I hate feeling like it may happen randomly again.

    Edge 2017 transmission Leak

    Checking some ForScanLite screenshots, the highest my transmission fluid temperature got in the past month was 88 degrees Celsius / 191 degrees Fahrenheit. 2019 ST 2.7 Ecoboost.
  13. Can it learn a New York or Boston accent ? 😎
  14. I got the part from Lakeland Ford also. It comes with the clips. Pop off the cover, pop the drawer in place. Very easy. And I find the drawer useful.
  15. Recently from Ford: The global semiconductor shortage continues to affect global automakers and other industries in all parts of the world. While we continue to manufacture new vehicles, we’re prioritizing building our customers’ vehicles that were assembled without certain parts due to the industry-wide semiconductor shortage. This is in line with our commitment to get our customers their vehicles as soon as possible and consistent with our forecasted supply. To prioritize these builds, we are changing production plans at some plants in North America. Specifically: Chicago Assembly Plant will be down the weeks of July 5, 12, 19 and 26 and will run two shifts the week of Aug. 2 Dearborn Truck Plant will run two crews the weeks of July 12, 19 and 26 Flat Rock Assembly Plant will be down the weeks of July 12 and 19 Hermosillo Assembly Plant will run one of two shifts the weeks of July 12 and 19 Kansas City Assembly Plant F-150 line will be down the weeks of July 12 and 19, while the KCAP Transit line will be down the week of July 19 Kentucky Truck Plant will be down the week of July 12 and run two shifts the weeks of July 19, 26 and Aug. 2 Louisville Assembly Plant will run on a reduced schedule the week of July 19 Oakville Assembly Complex will produce Nautilus only the weeks of July 19, 26 and Aug. 2 Individual Powertrain and Stamping plants will provide specifics around their operating patterns as they are confirmed. Separately, Michigan Assembly Plant will be down the weeks of July 5 and 26 due to an unrelated part shortage. Our teams continue making the most of our available semiconductor allocation, finding unique solutions to provide as many high-quality vehicles as possible to our dealers and customers. Thank you for your continued commitment to build high-quality vehicles for our customers and dealers and for your flexibility. Stay safe! #BuiltFordProud John
