    Did someone had to ORDER their Edge?

    although i like the new ones, if you offered to give me either set, i would take the '16 ones. i really like those ones. let me know if you want to get rid of them

    looks gorgeous. hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
  3. I've searched the web a bit and can find bits and pieces of information but I was wondering if there is a comprehensive list of the things you can modify on the Edge with the Forscan software. If such a list does not exist, how about a thread where people can add specific settings that are modifiable and ask about ones that haven't been mentioned yet. There are loads of little things that I would love to improve (from my subjective viewpoint) on the edge but I don't want to buy the OBD unit and spend time learning about the software if none of the things I want to do are possible. An example of one extremely insignificant setting would be the number of flashes the turn-signal makes when you just tap the stalk. Three is simply not enough. I would like at least six or more. I know perfectly well that that I can simply hold the stalk and that this is really nit-picking but these are the types of details I'm thinking about and I'm just curious to know how much I can mod the car. Another thing is that this car makes more beeps, bings, and gongs than a video game. They're annoying and ridiculous and I don't even pay attention to them anymore. I'd love to reduce or even eliminate some of them.
  4. okay, got it. thanks. i misunderstood.
  5. are you saying that the climate control was not functioning or just that you didn't see it displayed on the panel? i have noticed that when remote starting the car, the various indicators like seat heating and AC don't light up but the seats are warm or the AC is working. it's bizarre and i've wondered why this is so but it is what it is.

    New Edge with 20" wheels, ride sucks HELP

    the ford.ca (i'm in canada) website lists the following sizes for the SEL, SE, Titanium, and ST respectively: 245 60/18 245 55/19 245 50/20 265 40/21 as you can see, there are four different wheel diameters available. They all have a tire diameter of 29.6" except for the ST which has a diameter of 29.3" the car's dynamics are very much affected by wheel diameter, offset, and tire width. braking for example is much less effective with a larger diameter tire. simple physics and geometry. ABS, traction, stability are all affected by geometry that is different than stock. it may be true that the internal parameters in the system may have different settings but for the purpose of the OP's question, he does not need to change anything for the new tires if he got tires that are a standard factory size.

    New Edge with 20" wheels, ride sucks HELP

    the whole idea of larger wheels is that the tire has a shorter sidewall and conversely, the smaller wheels have tires with taller sidewalls. the overall diameter, and thus the circumference, is the same on all edges from the factory no matter what the wheel size is. go to https://tiresize.com/calculator/ and plug the old and the new tire/wheel sizes into the tire comparison tab. that will give you the circumference which should be the same. if it's the same then the wheel will rotate the same number of times in a given distance and your odometer and speedometer will be correct.

    Car theft experiences?

    i have arlo cameras. you can set up the hub and/or your phone to make an alarm when the cameras detect motion. you can also set up zone on the camera so it only activates when people step onto your property but not walking by on the sidewalk. plus it's free to record and it's stored for 7 days.

    Double Honk when Locking

    ah, i assumed that you meant lock for both cases. so you're saying that it double honks when you unlock it? it isn't even supposed to honk at all with a single tap to lock it. just out of curiosity, i went to my garage and opened the hood of my edge. i clicked on lock and no honk. i unlocked and no honk. so i doubt it's that. i have had cars in the past that used the honk when locking to indicate a fault with the alarm system. i'm wondering if that's the same with the edge.

    Double Honk when Locking

    i assume you mean "locking" the car rather than unlocking as you have written. from the user manual: Mislock If any door or the luggage compartment is open, or if the hood is open on vehicles with an anti-theft alarm or remote start, the horn sounds twice and the direction indicators do not flash. You can switch this feature on or off in the information display. have you checked the hood and hatch?

    Hi guys, Italy here!

    Is the basic sound system amplified?

    all sound systems are amplified. otherwise you wouldn't get any sound. the question is how much i.e. how many watts.

    Hi guys, Italy here!

    i stopped by a ford dealer in barcelona a few years ago to check out the euro-edge. i liked many of the features like fog lights and the stainless strip across the sill under the back lift gate. ours are cheapo plastic. i also liked the placement of the LED "signature lights" around the headlamp assembly much better than down on the bumper that we have here. be sure to post some pics when you get it. i'd also like to know what reaction you get when driving it. i think it's still pretty rare in europe, no?

    2016 Edge Transmission Hard Shifting

    i never tried disconnecting the battery. i just let the dealer deal with it.

    2016 Edge Transmission Hard Shifting

    maybe the OP didn't but i did. at my last service, they reset the memory or programming for the transmission and that did the trick. transmission is back to normal now. apparently disconnecting the battery is not enough. it has to be done with their computer.

    Mileage when taking delivery

    wow, i had no idea that the engine controller was that smart. so i guess the take away is that if you take an ST for a test drive, don't be surprised that it's slow?
  18. i just took my car out and did an experiment to test my theory. i drove away with my seatbelt off. the warning "bings" sounded i put my seatbelt on and they stopped. then a block away from home, i undid my seatbelt again. the warning light did not come on which i find to be strange. i didn't want to drive longer without my seatbelt so see when it would start warning me again. so my guess, and it's a wild guess, is that your car thinks that your seatbelt is not attached. when you start your car, do you see the seatbelt icon lit up? does it go off when you buckle up? i'm wondering if when you start hearing those 5x5 chimes, if you quickly unbuckle and buckle your seatbelt, the warning will stop. that's what i would investigate and i'm assuming that you wear your seatbelt.

    Mileage when taking delivery

    the original post never mentioned "huge power train failure." the OP mentioned that in a subsequent post. but how you treat the engine during break-in will affect how it performs in the long run. most likely it won't be a failure per se but it can lead to premature wear. pistons, rings, cylinders, cams, lifters, crank, and all those pieces that rub together need to "mate." if they don't, the engine won't blow up but you may end up with a very tired engine at low mileage. and just because you don't agree with what others say, it doesn't make them ridiculous.

    Did someone had to ORDER their Edge?

    i ordered my 2016 edge for exactly the reason you state. i wanted a black Titanium with no sunroof, nav, cooled seats, etc. if you can find a car that suits you, great. if not, order it. it'll take a couple of months but you get exactly what you want.
  21. what does 5x5 chime mean? "when i put the key in the ignition" do you mean while you're driving? 30 minutes between chimes?? no lights on the instrument cluster?
  22. i did these on my 2016 Ti 3.5 AWD: Turn Signal Flashes Change number of turn signal flashes on a quick tap of the stalk from the default of 3. (SCCM) 724-01-01 xxxx xXxx xx 0 = One Flash 4 = Two Flashes 6 = Three Flashes - (Default C02D 0600 xx ORIGINAL) 8 = Four Flashes A = Five Flashes C = Six Flashes E = Seven Flashes Door Close Double Horn Honk (Engine Running Without Keyfob Detected (PTS)): BdyCM 726-41-02 (2014+ MY) xxxX xxxx xxxx 1 (Enabled - Default) 0 (Disabled)

    Mileage when taking delivery

    70 km is way high. i don't remember how many my car had but IIRC it was fewer than 20. to me, the break-in period is important if you intend to keep your car for a long time. i would guess that people who want to test drive the new ST want to see how fast it is and are going to be flooring it right out of the dealer lot on a cold engine. personally, i wouldn't take that car. i wouldn't trust a car salesman to give me the time of day either. don't let emotions get you. you can find another ST or even order the exact one you want.

    162 FT LBS Needed for Wheel Nuts

    i put my breaker bar and a socket in the back of my car specifically for that reason.

    2019 AWD Titanium 13mph 'thud'

    if i were to guess, i would say it's the transmission downshifting especially since you say it doesn't happen in Sport mode. put the tach up on the display and see if there's a jump in RPM when you hear the thud.
