    2015 SEL cha...cha...changes

    I like the grille. A TI VCT or ST or Ecoboost emblem on one side would dress it up nicely.
  2. My ESN is a combination of 8 letters and numbers and I can enter all of them. Are you on this site? https://syncnavigation.com/ford/home

    Navigation Update

    Yes sir. It's been posted since Sept 5th: https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/27424-sync3-map-updates-available-on-line/
  4. Ok, something is making the Edge believe that right front bulb is out (which it is) thus the hyper flash. I know you said you'd changed the right bulb twice so that's probably not the cause. It wouldn't hurt to check the bulb again but test it with a power source (9V battery works) or test for resistance with a mutimeter or swap it with the left side bulb. Take a close look at the connectors at the bulb and at the headlight housing. Is something dirty or burned? A spritz with some contact cleaner wouldn't hurt. If none of the above is the cause you're going to be looking for a broken wire which is very unlikely.

    Cabin Fuse 27 then 30 amp

    It's certainly better to be stuck closed than open. Is the interior panel sliding or is it non operative too? If both have failed then, yep, probably the fuse. You should always check that first anyway as the easiest solution is often the best solution. Cheers!
  7. That's kind of odd. The file(s) should unzip easily to a USB drive. If you're getting an error on your PC try a different unzip utility. Where people normally have issues is with the vehicle reading the flash drive. While Ford's instructions tell you to format the drive ExFat that frequently fails. Format to FAT32 and the drives always work as long as the files are all in the root of the flash drive. Give it a shot!

    Smallest Wheel Size on Ford Edge 2015

    I just checked TireRack.com and they don't list a 17" wheel for the Edge (they do show 18, 19, 20, 21) so my guess would be no. It's easy enough for you to check though. Measure the clearance from the brake caliper to the inside edge of your 18" wheel. If it's a half inch (13mm) or less then the answer is a hard no. As an alternative, go back to wherever you saw someone claiming they've mounted a 17" wheel and ask them about it. Cheers!

    Just bought 2015 Ford Edge

    Have your son watch the following video. It'll walk him through all the steps needed to remove and replace the existing radio. It's really just a few panels that pop off the center console then some easy to reach bolts and connectors. He can do it:
  10. I don't know but it costs you nothing to go to the update site and enter your VIN + ESN numbers. Once you do that you'll either be taken to an update page or be told the numbers are bogus. Give it a try! Cheers!
  11. Questions that need answering before anyone can make a suggestion: Is the bulb lighting just not blinking or is it not coming on at all? Is the passenger side rear working properly or not blinking? Is the left side working properly? If the right rear is working correctly (or hyper flashing) it indicates bad bulb or possibly a bad socket/connection on the right front.
  12. The Carfax should provide your engine and some other information. To determine 'all' of the equipment your Edge came with from the factory you can pay a couple of dollars to get the original window sticker. Here's a link: https://removeandreplace.com/2013/03/24/find-your-cars-window-sticker-online/ There are also links from Ford's web page like Etis: https://www.etis.ford.com where you can gather vehicle information but the site can be very confusing. The 'maximum' the Edge is rated to tow with a factory installed towing package is 3500 pounds, the hitch weight would be 350 pounds. Anything beyond that will exceed the Class 2 hitch capabilities. The trailer you shopped with a 3415 pound dry weight will easily exceed 3500 pounds when you fill your fresh water tank and load it with food, clothing, pots & pans and all the other 'stuff' that goes with traveling. Not mentioned in tow standards is the frontal area of the trailer. Be sure when shopping you minimize that area by using the type travel trailer with a roof that can be lowered like a classic tent trailer (though there are much fancier types these days). Enjoy the hunt!

    Congratulations on your new Edge! You might want to take a look at the Sync forum to learn all about your Sync2 system and any workarounds that will let you use your iPhone as an audio source if nothing else. Maybe there are some Car Play workarounds. Here's a link: https://fordsyncforum.com/index.php Scroll down to the Sync2 section. Cheers!

    keypad entry

    If you're referring to door lock/unlock keypads it's unlikely you'd be able to retrofit anything that would look original. Small keyfob batteries typically last for years and are easy and cheap to replace.
  15. STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM If the bolts corrode, the steering gear motor may detach from the gear housing resulting in a loss of power steering assist, requiring a greater steering effort, especially at lower speeds, and increasing the risk of a crash.
