    How many Fords have you owned?

    I ordered a Bronco Sport in March and took delivery on June 23. I traded In the mariner at 20200.4 miles.

    Thinking about Hood Struts

    HI All. I have read though some of the other discussion on hood struts . Some of these threads are years old and I am curios if anyone is having rust issues with these in the northerns states. I have a 2014 that I plan to keep and would like to add them. I plan on getting a bolt-on set for my Bronco Sport. However the model for the Ford Edge require Drilling. Does anyone have a status update for their installs of these kits?
  3. So. I called etrailer. The model they make for SPORT is not compatible with SEL. They even added it to the faq. https://www.etrailer.com/question-525555.html?fb=yes Now, I did find that Ford offers a oem hitch on the accessories site. It also claims no drilling and not sport compatible. So I may have found what I was looking for. https://accessories.ford.com/trailer-hitch-8755.html#2014/Edge I'm looking for install directions. Part number BT4Z-19D520-A

    14 Edge radio swap

    Curious. I have a 2014 with sync2. How can this be achieved? I have searched and not found a good guide yet.
  6. OK, This worked. I can confirm you can install ford a Ford Plug n Play remote start kit in a 2014 ford Edge SEL w/o power liftgate. These Kits are sold for F150, and super-duty trucks. Watch any truck install video and it give you an idea. The pictures from another post show where the target module is behind the driver's rear quarter trim panel. Use care when pulling it out. I did not take a picture, but you don;t have to rip the entire panel out. Just pull it back near the top of the seat belt. The TPM module is mounted to the Trim panel. Purchased parts - BT4Z-19G366-A Hood Switch - BC3Z-19G364-A Remote start kit. 2 (generic) keys, antenna, and RF cable. I did not have to mess with As-Built codes as it had "presets" ready to go for BdyCM and IPC module. IPC changes were expected from previous posts. With all the Remote options added, just one row of AS-built changed. BdyCM changed as expected, however, it did change block 57. I compared exports before, after and then compared them with win-merge. I forget to take screenshots of block 57 in forscan. Since the Keys were clones, the Key Transponder had to be programmed separately from the remote built in to the key had. For the remote part, I had to program with 8 key cycles then press buttons on the remote. For some reason, generic keys are just a transponder pill and and remote fob kluged together The Clone keys have a 2x button, but it takes 3 presses after lock to start the car remotely. I am not sure why, but it does guarantee a start every time. Here are links to amazon items that I ordered. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08YQT3V2Y/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BI1CHCE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  7. My key settings is really to see how many programmed keys there are. I'll find a video of the menu for you. I'm still hazy on the parts needed. I updated another thread asking to confirm parts. You should pull the driver rear quarter trim panel. That will show you if you have the remote start antenna. You can also check your Vin with a free account at etis.ford.com. You can pull your as built config from the factory wit Motorcraftservice.com/asbuilt
  8. It's odd that your key would have a 2x start button and not have remote start. It could be that the key you have is all that was available to the dealer or the previous owner when a key copy was made. You can sign up for an account with the Ford site below and check if you had remote start from the factory with your Vin. Etis.ford.com Also, how many keys do you have now and have you lost any? You can check the number of programmed keys in the cluster (IPC). Look for my key if it is an activated feature, it will tell you how many total keys, admin keys there are and how many "mykey" keys. Mykey is in the cluster settings, be sure not to "demote" your only key to a mykey. If there are more keys than you have, it would be likely, it was the only keyblank available. It would also be a diy programming or an inexperienced Lock Smith as a dealer would have erased other lost keys. If remote start is as plug n play as we are lead to belive, you need the following done. - Hood pin switch on the driver side. - working key with a 2x button that you already have. - a bar type antenna behind the quarter panel on the driver side. - (lastly) remote start enabled in your body control module. You can check the body control info with a windows laptop, obd reader like obd MX and a free copy of forscan for windows. This is in the bdy as built codes. Check out the quarter panel first.

  9. I have a 2014 SEL with a non power lift gate. I have re read the thread and I summarize i need the following. Would a forum adult please check my work? I plan to do all the work and not need a Dealership trip and Rotunda IDS. I have seen talk about needing a VSS module or an RMST module. IS that still a requirement on 2014 as i heard it was just Add the bar antenna, enable in IDS, and cut/program keys. I have no requirement for Cellular remote access. I only want to remote Start with IKT. I have no want for another fob to hang off my keys. - Hood Pin Switch - BT4Z-19G366-A.

MY OEM keys are 3 button and My 2014 SEL has w/o power lift gate. I have programmed late 90;s fobs to it and they have trunk release buttons, but they do not release the liftgate for manual opening. On my Mariner it releases the liftglass. Since the ford Edge has no lift glass; is the double press trunk button able to be enabled for vehicles w.o power liftgate? I think I answered my own question, but is the trunk button only meant to power liftgate. Since I have no plan to add power liftgate, would I be best off with 4-button remote start? Update: 4/28 I'm going to order the following and see how it goes. - antenna module with rf cable and 2 keys - a hood pin switch I feel the RMST module may not be required. Update:5/3 . The kit arrives on Tuesday. I'm anxiously waiting. I'll only cut one of the keys for now; as the primary driver is the one that cares for this feature.
  10. HI. I know this thread is two years old, but did you ever find the IPC as-built code to remove Sirius from the cluster entertainment screen? Asking for a friend.

    keypad entry

    It's been two years. Did you get a chance to perform this mod? I added this to my 2003 taurus years ago. I have diagrams for 2014 if you want. Do you have have a door with the cut out or are you using a grinder?

    Seat cover 2014

    She is quite happy with it, and the seat heater still does its job. I like the front pocket. I'm going to order a second one for the passenger. There is even a drilled hole in the seat Frame for the attchement hook. She's happy and so am I.
  13. I'm gathering a bill of materials to add remote start to my 2014 sel. I understand the process changed in the first generation after 2013. I do not have a powered lift gate. I'm not trying to hijack your thread, but we can work together. Link: Adding OEM Remote Start - Kits & Parts Explained (detailed) - 2011+
  14. I have a 2014 Edge. In the factory configuration for 2nd Generation Edge, 5th Gen Explorer and PIU; the owners guide states the interior lights (dome and map) come on with illuminated Entry and Illuminated Exit. Enabling Dark Car does disable that functionality. It's pretty much the same as the first through fourth Generation Explorer with analog cluster illumination dial in the full down position all the time. This is in manual section labeled Panel dimmer Control in the owners guide going back to 1998. Though it may have existed in 1991-1997, it isn't documented. Rolling the dimmer down to the lowest setting defeats the dome and interior lights from coming on with Door ajar. In the intervening years, this has changed to a dome override on button as apposed to a Dial that at the apex in either direction will override the dome on and defeat the dome off. I also enabled "Dark Car" in my Ford Edge so I don't have the dome light or interior lights come on when I open the door. Though I could compare the As-built codes before and after, I have not. So I don't know what changes are made with this setting in forscan. i do plan to make that comparison. With Dark Car enabled, I can override by pressing the Dome override button and the interior lights come on and pressing a second time (defeats) turns the dome and map lights off. Is there an as-built change that will, enable Dome defeat but in a way where the dome comes on with Door Ajar like factory, but pressing the button once, defeats the dome, like it does with the 2nd press with Dark Car enabled.?
