Ford Edge Titanium 2016 Remote start

Recommended Posts

Since the first day I have problems with everything related to external temperature sensor and I have 3 questions

If is is freezing and you remote start your Edge

 

Does the heating system goes on automaticly?

Does the heating of the driver seat goes onautomaticly?

Does the heating of the steering wheel goes on automaticly?

 

In my Edge the heater goes ON BUT NOT the steering wheel and driver seat heaters

 

In my wife Dodge caravan the heating goes on, the driver seat heater goes on and the steering wheel heater goes on

 

Thanks for your help

You should be able to adjust this in the settings menu on the left side. Go into Settings, Vehicle, Remote Start. There are settings there for climate control, seats and steering wheel.

The automatic settings are explained in the owner's manual, page 131.

《Automatic Settings

In hot weather, the system is set to 72°F (22°C). The cooled seats are set to high (if available, and selected to AUTO in the information display). In moderate weather, the system either heats or cools (based on previous settings). The rear defroster, heated mirrors and heated seats do not automatically turn on. In cold weather, the system is set to 72°F (22°C). The heated seats are set to high (if available, and selected to AUTO in the information display). The rear defroster and heated mirrors automatically turn on.》

 

The manual settings are explained on page 130.

Thanks very much, I found an english PDF of the manual and it is clear, I received the Edge with a french manual, very very poor translation

What do you do if the Climate Control and Seats options are grayed out and you can't adjust them? I thought I read somewhere in here that the dealer could make some adjustments? Thanks.

Sounds like a dealer visit is in order. The HVAC system or FCIM may need a calibration (firmware) update.

An update of the Firmware of the Edge save the problem now I can select Climate control Auto or OFF, Auto is using the external temperature to set it ON or OFF same for the seats and the steering wheel

Problem SOLVED

Trip to dealership - 40 minutes

Update software to fix issue - 45 minutes

Time spent looking at 2018 Explorers - 60 minutes

Trip home - 40 minutes

 

Not a bad morning.
