    Seat cover 2014

    No. We have tried al different leather cleaners. Nothing seems to prevent legs from sticking to the leather on a hot day. I'd be happy to do a cloth swap. We only need a decent butt-cushion cover that doesn't look horrible. Any thought? I tried salvage, but nothing newer than 2010 is there. Tasca parts shows that 2012 - 2014 are compatible. Would a 2008 or 2010 cloth cover work? Has anyone changed OEM seat covers?
  2. Are there any good recommendations for a seat covering for the front seats? My wife doesn't like the leather sticking to her skin. The seats seem a bit "gurthy" compared with other car seats..
  3. So i started looking for other device mounting options for the Edge. I have installed a panavise InDash mount. however it being on the right of the touchscreen is a bit farther than other vehicles. I found that pro clip, as previously discussed here mounts above the ignition cylinder. I am ready to order that and a vertical extension plate get it out from behind the wiper stalk. Then I found that A-Tach mounts makes one for 2007-2010 and 2015-current. There is a gap in the middle; so I reached out to customer service asking why that was the case. The wrote back with the following. So I guess if you want something other than proclip or Panavise for 2011-14, send them an e-mail and show them there is some interest still.

    How many Fords have you owned?

    I gew up with my parents owning these 1990 Econoline 150 conversion van 1994 continental 1998 Town car 2004 Town car My own Fords 1998 Explorer sport - trans died 2003 Taurus SES ax4s - trans died 2008 Mariner - still running at 200,400miles 2014 Edge SEL - inhereted Now my wife wants to add a 2022 bronco 4 door.
  5. Thank you. I did not see this option when I checked prior. Perhaps I did not scroll far enough. I have an SEL not sport. Do you think that would be fine?
  6. All the aftermarket tow hitches for a 2014 SEL I see requires drilling two holes out of six bolt holes required My wife and I will rent a 5x8 uhaul trailer once In a while. There will be no camper pulling here, unless it's a tiny tear drop one under 2000 lbs. Does anyone have a recommendation to prevent rusting where holes are drilled? I live in upstate NY and, well winter.

    Reorder Radio sources 2014

    I got the net effect I was looking for by removing Sirius from the lineup on the Touch screen,. I almost never use the right cluster screen. I still need to remove it from there. At least this looks better to me. Thanks DaMiFo for stating that the order is fixed.
  8. I just skimmed through this entire thread, looking for, and did not see a dedicated shared spread sheet to First and second Gen Ford Edge. I have a blank one started. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rJsdm8IpDyhjgKjnugyd-Xv4ULdl3JCQU7lS7TvsIPQ/edit?usp=sharing
  9. I have a 2014 Edge and 2008 Mariner with Redundant Radio Steering wheel controls. Both of them function in the same manor and I would like to change this default behavior. Currently, tapping the Previous << and Next >> buttons will scroll through the radio presents in an expected direction. Holding or long-pressing them will seek the radio to previous/next available strong station. I would like to swap the behavior around . This would make SEEK the tap operation and the next-preset operation be the long-press or hold option. I have found few threads talking about this and no threads talking about it here. I have cross-posted to ForScan Forum. I know when I added Steering wheel controls to my Mariner I had to edit the row. My original As-built 727-01-01 0040 D08B E0XX I changed the D to a 9 and the E to a 6 727-01-01 0040 908B 60XX Does anyone else desire this same swap? I find it funny that tap'to-seek is the default function on my 2014 jeep patriot.

  10. I have attempted to research this but am coming up empty. Has anyone here tried changing the Order of the Radio inputs with forscan? I would like to move the BT audio a little higher in the list, as it is on the the second "page". I think i may have to accept that the order is static and I should removed Unused inputs. Perhaps removing Sirius radio from the list would help. I found this to remove Sirius, but have not had a chance to change it.

  11. In case you were wondering, yes a wireless charge cradle this close to the ignition will interfere with PATS on start. I found it best to cradle the phone after starting the engine going forward. I plan to move it a bit higher. Not a problem, more of a PSA.

    I agree that web-formatting aside, it is nice to be able to consolidate all the forums I post to in the same app. Like a podcast aggregator for forums .
  13. I know this thread is six years old. However for those coming in from web search, I had the same problem. I solved it with the following: - windows laptop - Latest version of forscan, and a two month extended license trial. - a newly cut copy of an 80-bit key (non integrated remote) from Amazon.com- cost is under $15 - obdlinkmx Bluetooth dongle from Amazon.com - Discontinued now. You can use forscan to program additional ignition keys. I didn't have to erase all, just add.

  14. What about Gen 1? I am working on a 2014. Once you use one of four pinch welds to jack up, What's the appropriate place for a jack stand. What do you all use.?
  15. I too am looking for a guidance on jacking and lifting this vehicle. I guess we solved the Jacking point issue. We should Use a cut hockey puck or rubber pinch weld adapter. What are good Jack Stand location, besides, "there are plenty". Many owners have felt confused on where to find a appropriate lift point. I would think some senior member would be nice enough to clear this up with a pinned post on what "their" jack points and jack stand recommendations are.
