    2018 3.5 Considering battery replacement

    Nice to hear the reset of the BMS in the video worked for you. That's the method I'll probable be using. So you didn't need or use forscan when you changed your battery? Thanks
  2. Received advertisement from my dealer for the "Fast Lane" motorcrafter battery replacement for $149.95 plus taxes and installation. Haven't called yet, but thinking this wouldn't fit my Edge? Installation? $100? Tempting

    2018 3.5 Considering battery replacement

    Thanks for the info. My car doesn't have stop/start and I don't want it! It strains the battery, starter and engine. Haven't changed my battery yet, but now keep jumper cables in my car. Having checked the voltage on my battery occasionally, it has been as low as 11.6 volts. When it's this low I put a charger on it and it come right up. My biggest concern is coming back from a trip and finding it dead in the parking lot, but they have a jump starter there so not a huge deal. I charged the battery before my last trip and when I came back the car started fine. I'll look into Advanced auto parts. Buy I'll probable just do it myself.

    I found this method for BMS reset and will give it a try. Still interested in Forscan sounds like something I should have. Thanks for the info.

    Not familiar with Forscan, is that a app? Where would I find it?

    2018 3.5 Considering battery replacement

    Probably following this procedure, If I hook up a 12 volt power source to the cigarette lighter would that work to preserve my radio stations and destinations when I unhook my old battery?
  7. Considering replacing the battery soon on my 2018 with 3.5L The car isn't a driven daily. This causes premature battery failure. Can I do this myself? Looks like reaching the negative terminal may be difficult but possible. Is this just a unhook the old battery and hookup the new, like I've done with other cars? Any hints, tips, suggestions like what battery to replace it with would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Walmart Supertech fluids

    Any thoughts on using Walmart Supertech synthetic SAE 75w/140 for the PTU lube change?
  11. All the time I park it's on a level surface, therefore I never need or set it when I park. Years ago on several cars if you put on the parking brake, it wouldn't release. The parking brake would stick in the locked position, this makes me reluctant to use it as well. My Edge stops better after I've set the parking brake. I'll have to remember to set it once in awhile.

    PTU hose down flush - what flushing fluid?

    Draining my PTU, exactly 400ml came out. Manual says should've got 530ml. When filled, could only get 400ml in. 3.5L v6
  13. Did a complete factory reset of my phone, last resort wipes everything out - but it works now. Restored my contacts from a backup, blue toothed to the Edge and contacts download fine. Spent most of the day backing up my phone, did the factory reset on the phone and then restored things back on the phone. Wasn't a sync problem.
  14. Reset and patched sync, all it got me was loosing my previous destinations, radio station and other settings. Why do text messages transfer from my phone to sync, but not contacts? Tried pushing individual contacts, but get a failed to transfer message on my phone, so it does seem to be the phone.
