  1. If the car has been running upon cutting the car off the accessory outlet remains energized for a lengthy period of time (30 mins or more) it eventually cuts off. On the other hand. Once off...if the radio is powered on...the circuit cuts on...cut radio off circuit cuts off. You can cut radio on and off without keys by pressing on button. I want my device I use for work to come on and off with the switch but not to cut off an hour later. Fuse 23 shows as delayed accessory I may have to see if this operates the way I need it to.
  2. Can someone explain to me why sometimes my accessory outlets are constant power and sometimes they are accessory switched? 2016 Ford Edge
  3. Has anyone removed the front emblem badge from grill on a 2016 edge yet? If so any shortcuts, photos etc? Making a custom Lexan lighted badge replacement...just trying to save a few steps on the removal of the original one
  4. I got directly from the battery. On a 2016 there is a factory grommet on the firewall to the left of the steering column...comes out under battery box...I ran to the right (from under dash) and used factory wire secure points. See photos of how i made custom bracket to hold fuse holder as near to battery as possible.
  5. The one that is already there acts a a crossover for the tweeter and protects the tweeter from low frequency. If you apply a capacitor to the entire speaker it will effect the frequency the tweeter is crossed over at but should not be an issue unless you are building a sound quality vehicle and need to adjust more precise.
  6. Which brings up another question now that you mention it. I wonder if there a way to change the splash screen image?
  7. I installed a Directed 5X10 and Smart Start GPS on my 2016 today. Love it. (6) wires to do remote start (2) wires for security. Service cost is $99.00 yr Does GPS tracking, Remote Start, Lock/Unlock, Panic, complete vehicle status such as which doors/hood/hatch are open, battery status etc all from cell phone Uses factory remotes (3X remote start)

    What phone holder did you buy?

    I love my Scosche Magnamount. I got the suction cup mount to windshield style. It has stayed in place since the first time I adhered it and the grip from the magnet is super strong. No worries of it falling off. Mounted on the far left corner of driver side it was easy to run a USB charge cable to it and access navigation with eyes on the road.
  9. I am in and out of the vehicle constantly. Getting samples out etc. just to name one example. Also the car is switching on accessory power for devices I use for work. on and off, on and off, on and off I just wish it would not waist its time booting up every time I open the door or hatch.
  10. You read my mind. I have removed many a door panel but was like "am I about to break this?" I finally got it but you are correct it took a lot of upward pressure to release the (2) clips in the handle cup. Sorry for the delayed response. Thanks for the reply.
  11. Any way to disable the instrument cluster "pre" boot up upon opening of doors on 2016 Ford Edge? Every time you open the door the cluster lights up and pre-boots for lack of a better term along with the 12 outlets...I just want my dome lights to come on. Any suggestions?
  12. I ordered this vehicle specifically with a base audio system so upgrading would not be as difficult to integrate into vehicle. As for now I am using factory ford sync head unit (not Sync 3) with a Euphoria EDSP31v2 DSP unit from DB Research. I tapped signal behind the (ACM) Audio Front Control Module "AKA the CD player unit" I would have to research to see where the Sony premium systems best available place to connect LOC at.
  13. I have replaced all factory locations with upgraded speakers and amplification. (still working on center stage speaker) I ordered this vehicle specifically with a base audio system so upgrading would not be as difficult to integrate into vehicle. As for now I am using factory ford sync head unit (not Sync 3) with a Euphoria EDSP31v2 DSP unit from DB Research. At some point in the future I will upgrade head unit. Hoping an aftermarket kit manufacturer will have a kit available after CES this year. If not I will be forced to custom modify dash to accommodate an aftermarket unit. I am very pleased with factory unit for now. The EDSP31v2 has high level input availability plus auto senses signal and comes on and off with factory head
