  1. 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

    Page 194 of your owner's manual:
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  6. 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.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    Or you're asking the wrong forum. Check out https://edgestnation.com And/or on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1712293469050363/
  8. 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.

    Touchy brakes

    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.

    20” wheels on the 2017 Titanium and 2020 ST

    Hi Gary, Good news, Gen 2 wheels are interchangeable with any other Gen2 Edge. We just can't swap between Gen1 and Gen2 (different stud measurements). Swap away! Edit to add: If you ever want to compare car-to-car in the future you can always visit tirerack.com . Click for 'wheels' then input information for one vehicle and see what the stock measurements are. Do the same for vehicle #2. If they match you're good to go!
  11. Receiver, 4-pin wiring harness, sway control, heavy duty cooling system (note the fans are different and use a pair of fuses instead of a single fuse), higher output alternator. With all that you're still limited to maximum 3500 pounds. With your current setup you're limited to 1500 pounds.

    Potential 2.0 downfall...

    Correct. Ford issued a TSB in June of 2019 advising of coolant intrusion in 2015-2018 Edge with 2.0L engines (see attachment below). It's actually been posted quite a bit in those forums you mentioned with some owners receiving new engines under warranty but others having to pay full freight if they're not covered. There's another TSB for the 2.0 involving the flex plate that can detach from the crankshaft. I don't have a copy of that one but you can search all the TSBs for your year by visiting this site: https://www.carcomplaints.com/ . Navigate to your year/engine etc then click the TSB tab. 2.0 cylinder misfire tsb.pdf

    Should I be worried about water pump?

    You actually have several things going for you. The 2013 has the improved (new seals/bearings) water pump for starters. You're also aware of the potential issue so I'll guess you've changed your coolant at least once with the correct color for your year and are using pure synthetic motor oil. Those two items go a long way toward protecting not only the pump but your entire engine.
  14. I don't think so unless I was on that forum for the Solara. I did put together a couple of Toyota pages when I owned them. One was for the Solara and another was for the Avalon: https://www.gadgetjq.net
  15. If you like the car and the price is right don't let the roof stop you. The problems you've seen with the BAMR are mostly due to lack of maintenance. That's not really the fault of owners since there's no maintenance schedule or procedure mentioned in the owner's manual. Can they be shattered by a rock? Sure! Just like your windshield so glass coverage is a good idea. By the way, the moon roof maintenance doesn't have to be complicated. You'll find a how-to here along with a benchmark for testing that newly replaced roof: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/roof/bamr.html
