    Dash Camera Installation

    Here's the layout for a '16, it 'might' be the same for your later model. Be sure to check using a multimeter or test light. Note, the left side of the photo is actually the 'top' of the fuse box.
  2. Wait, you don't get a call from someone named Leslie or Suzie a couple of times a week offering to extend your warranty?

    A drag race is 1320 feet. A 60 foot race is for pedal cars.

    Since you're just beginning the exploration process with your Edge you might find the following pages handy. This one will help explain some things in the manual and add a few items that 'should' be in there: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/tips/quick_tips.html This page adds a few other things that are handy to know (and aren't in the manual at all: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/stuff/stuff.html And here's a link to the main page that'll help when you start modifying your new Edge: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/ Have fun!

  6. Yes, it's pretty well documented in this forum and assorted Edge groups. Try doing a search for "liftgate close" and see what pops up. The liftgate closing unexpectedly is usually caused by the owner/operator placing their feet under the bumper while loading or unloading then moving a foot toward the rear. This is the exact motion that triggers the sensor (as opposed to side to side movement). Two possible fixes. 1. Open your liftgate and pretend you're loading/unloading groceries. Note where your feet are. If the toes are under the bumper move back and be conscious of where to stand the next few times. Try standing to the right or left of center. Eventually it'll be automatic (muscle memory) 2. Unplug the sensor. I don't know exactly where the plug is in the '20 but for earlier models it's on the right side and slightly in 'front' of the bumper. You might be able to see/reach it without disassembling anything but it's easier if you remove the panel under the rear bumper. If I remember correctly, someone posted a photo of the plug in this forum a year or so ago. 3. A third way requires the use of Forscan. You'll find that 'how-to' on my Edge tips page here: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/forscan/forscan.html#lgate
  7. In the U.S. we miss out on the "obscene" stickers. Ours are just a bunch of safety warnings that common sense says we should know anyway (warning, this vehicle will tip over more easily than a sports car during high cornering speeds)

    Backup warning conflicting with trailer use

  9. Hi John, That's odd, the links don't work and all the photos have vanished from this thread. No problem, the tutorial 'is' on my web page ( https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/index.html ) It's the first item on the left Here's a direct link to the camera page: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/Front_Camera_Edge/front_camera.html The link to the camera at AliExpress is https://bit.ly/3s2CTGp and for the module it's changed to https://bit.ly/3duMZM6 Cheers!
  10. The salesman was actually correct and the condensation issue is mentioned in your owner's manual (page 85). If you're under warranty and 'if' the moisture is very heavy (puddling at the bottom and large drops on the lens) you can probably get a replacement. Otherwise, just fix them. You'll find a 'how to' here: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/stuff/stuff.html#conden Since you're a new owner you might want to check out the rest of the site (click the back to home page link at the top of that page) for some tips/tricks that'll make your ownership a lot more fun. Cheers!

    Engine cover for 2020 Edge Titanium 2.0L ??

    Life lesson learned. BEFORE taking delivery of a vehicle (new or used) open every door, look under every cover to make sure everything you expect to be there really is. A lot of buyers are surprised their vehicle doesn't have a spare tire (sometimes from the factory) or tools are missing or items you had on an earlier model of the same vehicle are gone like....engine cover, hood insulation, storage space top center of the dash, storage cubby lower left in the dash and one of the two horns.
  12. What you need is this little guy: https://amzn.to/3eMxZrN It steps 5 volts up to 40 kilovolts, enough for an eye opening shock but the amperage is really low so you won't actually kill anyone (probably). You'll find 'how to' videos on YouTube showing how to rig your door handle(s) with a switch so when someone gives the handle a tug (with the vehicle locked) the current flows from their hand to ground. It has the makings of a really fun video.

    Or you're asking the wrong forum. Check out https://edgestnation.com And/or on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1712293469050363/
  14. Didn't you ask this question and get an answer a few days ago? Maybe it just looks (very) familiar. Answer as Perblue said, all gen2 wheels will fit all other gen2 Edges. You just can't swap between gens 1 and 2.

    Are you using a code reader known to work well with FORScan? Some of the cheap eBay readers can't see a lot of Ford's modules (computers) so can't make changes/adjustments.
