mvan231 posted a topic in Accessories & ModificationsI've had my 2016 Edge SEL for about a month and a half or so and I've had this issue since I got it. The speedometer needle is always showing faster speeds than I am actually traveling. The digital speedometer display shows the correct value (based on my trial looking at separate GPS speed). Is this due to some incorrect setting programming in the computer or is the speedometer gauge / needle controlled some other way? I wasn't sure if the wheel/tire size is separately programmed for the digital speedometer vs the gauge. It seems strange, but I know that sometimes there are different programming parameters for certain functions in the vehicle.
See Attached Photo Speedometer/Cruise MPH 80/74 mph 50/50 mph 45/45 mph 40/37 mph I've had the vehicle in to two different Ford Dealerships and they have calibrated it twice and recently updated the software with a new SD card. Can someone please teach my how to read a speedometer?
As my handle states, we have a 2008 Edge Limited, with no real complaints other than what I posted earlier (cooling fans etc). One thing that has really pestered me is while driving during the day. The speedo and tach faces are shiny while the needles appear to be a light green. The numbers look like they might be red. At night, I can easily see the numbers but during the day, I must rely on the position of the needles to see how fast I am going, plus I use the aftermarket GPS when I replaced the original radio. Has anyone tried a dash cluster upgrade? I saw another Edge (Sport?) with what I think was a white gauge face with black needles and numbers that were lightyears ahead of mine. I wouldnt mind upgrading to a digital dash if it were a direct swap. Any ideas? (Note: I edited this post after I re-read it, and read it again. I had two cars confused. On one of them, the speedo is easily read during the day but not at night. The Edge is barely readable during the daylight. Oops, my goof.)
