  1. First post, but hopefully a useful one. This was a PITA to get out of Ford. I needed this info for installing a LOC behind the radio for the addition of an aftermarket sub. They gave me the diagram, but I discovered there's a typo. In the tech service document it shows the FRONT LEFT - as being Green/Brown, but that's incorrect. FRONT RIGHT - is Green/Brown. The actual FRONT LEFT - is Gray/Brown. Below are all the color combos as well as pin locations on the attaching wire harness. It's a 24 pin connector with numbers on the back of connector. 2020 Ford Edge, 6 speaker Left + (22) Blue Left - (10) Gray/Brown Right + (23) Yellow/Orange Right - (11) Green/Brown +12v Constant (1) White/Brown Ground (13) Black/Gray
  2. I discovered over the last couple of days that my navigation system says I have no GPS, I can not call out or answer calls verbally on my phone. Also the "Audio button" on bottom left of screen does not respond. There may be other symptoms I have yet to discover but that is enough for the moment. I checked/tested fuse # 32 (10 amp) in the passenger compartment fuse panel under the dash and that appears to be okay. I have done a master reset to no avail. This all started when last week the electric cooler fan would not shut off when I shut the car off. I got caught downtown with a dead battery and a good Samaritan gave me jump start with one of those new little jump start batteries.. Since it was late at night when I got home and the fan wanted to keep running I disconnected the battery over night and charged it up. I swapped out Relay #39 in the engine compartment fuse box and that solved that problem. NOW I have the problem described in the first paragraph. Can one or more folks give me some ideas as what to check next? I was sure it was the fuse # 32 (10 amp) but it looked both good and tested good. Any help will be much appreciated.
  3. So on my previous 2019 Ford Edge ST with the B&O sound system I never had this problem at all no matter the sound settings and no matter and the volume. But in my 2022 Ford Edge ST with B&O sound system that I just picked up even after changing sound settings just raising the volume to past half (15) will make the sub in the back bottom out and chatter and its only on the lower frequency sounds where you hear it otherwise it sounds like an “Upgraded” car sound system. I have brought this in and was told that there was nothing wrong and that everything was mounted, nothing was loose, there is no bulletin of this being a common problem, and its just a side effect of turning the volume up on this audio system. I feel that’s BS personally. I’m curious if there is any insight in what has changed between 2019 and 2022 for the B&O audio system and if anyone else has had this problem?
  4. Hi All, Few days back I opened the rear driver door for dampening and saw that the tweeter wasn't connected. I never sat in the rear seats so never noticed this but found this very disappointing as you can tell that something is not right when you hear song in the back seat. I am not sure how this is even possible but does anyone have any suggestions for this? Thanks!
  5. I have a 2008 Ford Edge Limited AWD and I have an issue with the sound system. When listening to music sometimes the Bass and Treble just stop working making the music sound awful. I found that turning off the stereo system then turning it back on after a second or two fixes the issue, but this problem occurs very often for me (about 2-3 times on a 3 mile drive). I believe the sound amplifier is the issue but I don't know where to locate the amp or which one I should purchase. Can anyone help with this issue? thanks.

  8. Been a while since I've been on this forum, but I wanted to share my latest project I've been working on for a while. Factory system was OK when I bought the car but always knew I wanted to upgrade at some point. Sounds great! My wife, which could care less, even commented on the sound! Infinity Reference 6832cf in all four doors (tweeter swivels upward) Audiocontrol LC7i processor (Acubass is incredible) Blaupunkt AMP1504 4-channel amp (150W x 4 RMS) and Kicker Hideaway subwoofer under the "40" seat (not looking for a window rattler, but surprisingly puts out a lot of bass) The LC7i makes the sub perform so much better and the sound is so much more full. Collected components over the years and bought when I could get a really good deal so only have about $500 in the entire system, including cables and wiring. It was important to me that the car looked stock so I wanted everything to be hidden with minimal modifications. I am even surprised at the improved sound. Well worth your time if you care about the music in your car.
  9. The navigation/maps in my 2016 Edge Titanium have gone crazy. The display will suddenly show what looks like a rifle scope and start jumping all over the place. We have watched it tell us we were in NC, TN, and KY in a 3 minute span. While using the navigation it has suddenly dropped our location. The volume on the radio goes up on its own to unbearable levels and it will switch stations. It will come on by itself. I had the dealer update the software and for about two weeks the problems seemed to be solved. Then it began again more aggressive than before. The update came with the Auto Android app. We started using the app and Google maps for navigating to avoid the Sync 3 craziness. Yesterday the Google Maps on the Android app started jumping all over the place! It's like there is a ghost in the machine! Has anyone else experienced this? What is the fix?
  10. So do to a rattle in my roof two years ago the dealer (this dealer was horrific and I eventually had to go to another one) took my roof apart to look at some stuff and I won't bore you with the details about it but basically after they had touched my car the sub lvls of the car were all screwed up and they thought nothing was wrong. So my issue now is the perhaps the AMP/DSP in the back of my car is messed up as as far as I can tell as if the crossover of the stock unit is now in the 100's for the sub and the lowest gain setting on the sync 3 audio menu for bass is basically worthless and before the dealer had my car it lived in the middle of the bar (lowest was not punchy at all to off in gain), now even off it thumps like crazy. I now have tools to pop off the plastics and look at things but I was wondering first if I could get some knowledge of what might cause this and if a master reset of the Sync 3 system will touch the audio crossover lvls internally or not. Thanks. Malcolm
  11. Hello, Sometimes I start the car and no sound comes out the speakers. I can tell everything is working, such as bluetooth, radio, ipod, just no sound. I can go 15/20 minutes, turn the car off, restart, and will back to normal. Very strange. I thought at one time it was only happening when it was very cold outside, But, it did it for the first time above 50 degrees yesterday. 2014 Edge, Limited Anyone have similar experience? Any solution? Thanks

  15. My volume control button and the call hang up button on my steering wheel in my 2013 Edge used to work intermittently and then a few weeks ago they completely stopped working. Tonight, I took it the old one out and replaced it with a brand new OEM switch cluster. I put it all back together and the volume button and call hang up button still don't work. But the SYNC voice command button and everything else in the switch cluster work. Anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? Maybe bad wiring or a loose connection? I'm at a loss for what it could be. When it was all pulled apart all the wiring appeared to be fully intact. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

  17. I have a 2013 SEL with Sync/MFT, non Sony stereo. I have been trying to get HD radio for a while now, and found that the receiver is built in the CD player. So I found an OEM HD stereo/cd/mp3 player on Ebay from a totaled 2013 Edge. I noticed that it had the same plugs on the back as my Edge receiver. When I got it, I plugged it in and everything works, including picking up HD channels....except the volume! Do I need to take it to the Ford dealer to have them unlock it, or type my vin number in to make it work? That's the question. There has to be a way to make it work, as what if your car got stolen and they took your receiver, you would have to get a new one and have them make it work. Any help would be greatly appreciated on this topic.

  20. Ok so i brought a 2008 Lincoln Mkx OEM radio to put in my EDGE , the one that came with my edge did not have a subwoofer input, so i figured there basically the same cars , and same year , so i put it in. The radio sounds amazing , i found out that its a pioneer radio and the amp and sub in the back are audiophile. When i plug it up , nothing happens. The subwoofer has been tested working with a shaker 500 from a 2008 mustang, i didnt keep that one in because the CD player had a problem. =please help , can i make the subwoofer work with the lincoln oem radio? do i have to re-wire the inputs?
  21. Now, that I am the proud owner of a 2011 Limited with the Sony Sound System, I do feel it's time to change the speakers and amplification since things aren't as clean as I would like. Given that I am not a person who installs Audio, I will be turning my Edge over to Audio Expression in Mesa, AZ for the install.

  22. Yesterday, I drove to the gym and back, all the audio worked, normal radio, normal Line-In for the iPhone music. Today, I turned it on all normal normal, and while everything appears to be functioning correctly, I'm getting zero volume. I know CD's are playing because the track time is playing, I know the radio is getting reception because it describes the station... yet with the volume on, mid-range or all the way up, nothing is happening. No white noise, no high-pitched whines... nothing. I checked all the fuses for everything related and those are all fine. Any other ideas out there? Has this happened to anyone else?
  23. My new subwoofer setup. I just added this 12" low profile pioneer and its running on a Rockford Fosgate p500.1bd amp. The original subwoofer location still has the 10" pioneer low profile sub running a RF 400.1 amp. I'm still working out the crossover points between the two subs. Anyway, if you feel like it then please let me know what you guys think. Sorry about the lighting in the pics. We took them at night without much light in the garage. Thanks. The first pic is the rear escort ZR4 laser shifter. I think the tech took the easy way out on the install by not putting the rear shifter on the license plate. That would have required running the wire through the rubber tube that protects all the wire going into the hatch. I hear folks with the laser shifters rarely if ever get hit by laser from the rear. Il add some pics of the front install soon.
