    2019 Ford Edge ST Towing

    Well I resolved the towing issues today. Dealer gave me more than we paid for the ST 15 months ago and 2K off MRSP on this F150. I guy really needs a pickup truck! It has the 12" sync 4 screen, co-pilot 360, 10speed with the 2.7L 325/400 and many other things the Edge did not have including more conformable seats. Quieter and smoother on the road.

    My '20 Edge ST Towing Experience

    I averaged 17.5+ at 68 MPH on a 1450 mile trip for Arizona to Washington last month. I think this is more in line with Ford's intended towing for the Edge.

    I kind of think you have the wrong trailer or wrong tow vehicle for such trips.

    2019 Ford Edge ST Towing

    So I tow my Can Am Spyder from Arizona to Washington on an open trailer 3 weeks ago and it did just fine. When I get back to Arizona I have a Kawasaki KRX 1000 waiting for me. It is going to be heavier and I think I will install electric brakes on the trailer. Could you give me a run down on the brake controller you are using and the wiring that you had to do? Thanks Chris

    New 2020 Edge ST owners

    Depending on when I was built, make sure it has had the transmission software update. TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 8F57 Transmission - Harsh Engagements And/Or Harsh Upshift/Downshift 20-2190 02 June 2020 This bulletin supersedes 19-2313. Reason for update: Incorrect or Incomplete Symptom Model: Ford 2019-2020 Edge Transmission/Transaxle: (8F57) Lincoln 2019-2020 Nautilus Transmission/Transaxle: (8F57) This fixed a lot of transmission issues.

    Start Stop Disable

    The Auto Stop button is NOT a can bus device. I installed the Auto Stop Eliminator a while back and love it. I had an issue after they tried to reflash my trailer module for the running lights coming/staying on when the vehicle was off. So I contacted them and here is their answer. Hi Chris, I'm sorry to hear about the issue with the Edge. No, I'm confident our device is not related to these issues. The AE003 is a simple analog device, not a CAN device. When you press the auto start/stop button on your vehicle, it mechanically touches a signal wire with 12v to a ground wire. The signal wire goes from 12v to ground to tell the vehicle to toggle the auto start/stop. Our device just does the same thing. It takes the signal wire and momentarily connects it to ground to toggle the start/stop. If start/stop isn't toggling, then the device isn't actively doing anything. It sounds like the tech missed a step that is causing the U2100 code (Initial Configuration Not Complete). Anytime this code is present, the start/stop will be disabled. It's how these vehicles are programmed and has nothing to do with our device. This is why when the device was removed, nothing changed. Travis Lambert TRL Automotive

    Recall/Service writer/Catch Can

    Well, it is not the Auto Stop Eliminator causing the issues. Here is the response I received back from Auto Stop.: "Hi Chris, I'm sorry to hear about the issue with the Edge. No, I'm confident our device is not related to these issues. The AE003 is a simple analog device, not a CAN device. When you press the auto start/stop button on your vehicle, it mechanically touches a signal wire with 12v to a ground wire.

They said the U2100 is still present, and asked for more time to disconnect the battery and wait 20 minutes and then try to flash the trailer module again. RESULT, now has a different code! They left todays ticket open and are contacting Ford again. They think Ford will say replace the Trailer Module. Stay tuned. Chris

    Recall/Service writer/Catch Can

    Well it appears that the Auto Stop Eliminator caused an issue after the trailering module update. Tech got a U2100 code after update that he could not clear and now auto stop does not work. Sort of a yeah! I removed the module and it still is screwed up. The Trailer lights do not come on with the vehicle off, so we got something right. They were waiting for a reply from the Ford hotline. I have the vehicle back.
  10. Took the ST in for the rear camera recall and the service bulletin on trailer running lights staying on. The service writer was looking the SUV over and even opened the hood. He saw the catch can and said that is a good idea to install that! I release the auto stop button so they would not know that I have the inline module install to the button. Chris
  11. Thanks, I will take this to the dealer when getting the backup camera recall done.
  12. I am noticing this same issue, has anyone found a resolution to the issue?
  13. I just got a new aluminum trailer to transport our Spyder Trike on our annual migration fall and spring. The LED running lights are coming on and/or staying on when the vehicle is turned off or is off. Searching and Googling did not turn anything up. What gives.

    Remote Windows

    While reading the manual learning how to do the global windows, I found the programming steps to set the FOBs to the seat positions, which the dealer electronics checkout guy failed to show us. You turn the can on without starting, then hold the seat position button of the door for the FOB you want programmed to that seat position, after the second tone/beep press the FOBs lock button within 3 seconds. Now that FOB or opening the drivers door while carrying that FOB will set your seat position. Up to three FOBs can be set to the three buttons on the door. On our RAM the two FOBs were preset to the two memory seat positions, it also remembered mirror, radio and HVAC setting for each FOB. Guess I will have to spend so time in the owners manual and see what else I have missed.

    Thinking about going Edge

    A lot of shifting issues were fixed last June with an updated firmware flash.
