  1. I used to do that as well on my Fusion since it didn't have CarPlay. I enjoy the option to have Nav with CarPlay vs AppLink
  2. Nice! Good idea! I'll keep this in mind when mine inevitably goes bad too

    Map update

    Ouch! Yeah I wouldn't do it either. Minimal benefit for the cost

    Hands free lift gate issue 2019

    Not true on my 2016. I just have to stick my foot near the bumper and it'll start on

    Backing up, very noisy

    Did you figure out the problem?

    2017 ford edge wind noise

    I had a similar issue on my 2013 Fusion previously and the issue was due to the weather stripping at the front small window. Different design, but it could be a similar issue. Somewhere the wind is getting caught

    Power Steering Leak

    Best to check the NHTSA site for recalls. what year is your edge?
  8. That was going o be my suggestion as well

    Map update

    Blows my mind that they charge that much for map updates still when so many other services offer mapping/updates for free

    My Touch or Sync

  11. Applink support is ending, but still works for now. I used to use it before upgrading my USB module to a CarPlay compatible version. I found that the applink worked decent, but still a bit laggy compared to CarPlay Do you just use your phone and text over Bluetooth?

    Backup camera wiring ?.

    You could probably tap into the relay or the fuse for the reverse lamps. Looks like fuse 15 in the passenger compartment fuse panel.
  13. You can also use Waze without using CarPlay if you want to use that feature. it just comes up through the AppLink service on the bottom of the screen. It doesn't work as nicely as CarPlay does, but its at least an option
  14. This is fantastic! Thanks so much for the great info!
  15. I had this same issue on my fusion when I had it. The self sealing fuel door was sounding like it was farting or vibrating because of the bad valve. Glad to know it's a similar issue here. The one for my fusion came with the tubes attached. This was the part I replaced on my fusion https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,2013,fusion,2.0l+l4+turbocharged,2002842,exhaust+&+emission,vapor+canister+purge+valve+/+solenoid,4936 looks like they have a different listing for the different engine types of the 2015 Edge. Not sure why but the 2.7L looks most similar to what i had to replace on my 2013 Fusion 2.0. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,2015,edge,2.7l+v6+turbocharged,3310415,exhaust+&+emission,vapor+canister+purge+valve+/+solenoid,4936

    Battery issues

    I am having a similar issue on my 2016. It seems to be the worst when it has sat overnight or for at least 8 to 10 hours. I am going to get a battery test done and see what happens with the results
  17. I believe there are just plastic clips that hold those in place. I'ts not the best solution though
  18. You could have a pending code that hasn't met all the criteria to set the DTC to present. If it was something like a starter or alternator, you may not see a code at all

    Towing ford edge

    Further, you may need a special harness to keep the battery charged in the Edge from the vehicle towing it

    3500 lbs towing

    Definitely agree that it's probably over the limit of a safe towing capacity with that configuration. Even if the 4 cylinder engines of today make similar power to previous generations of 6 cylinder

    3500 lbs towing

    I'm also curious about this. My setup doesn't have factory tow package

    ROOF LEAK from antenna?

    hopefully you find the leak path. Maybe there is a spot to seal it off. Those controls shouldnt touch the outside though. Maybe there is somewhere else it is leaking into the roof then it's coming through there to get into the passenger compartment?

    Towing RV?

    I'm also curious about this. The info I find is a max of 3,500 lbs for towing capacity if properly equipped
  24. When I drilled out the rivets that were holding on the bracket on mine, I just left the two holes as is. My Edge is black so it looks fine with two small holes there
