      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. LED build change over.

    My brother got back to me saying that he has been unable to find out so far, he is still looking into though. I also contacted my dealers to ask the question, they said they would get back to me, am still waiting for them to answer. Will let you know when I find out more. Dave
  2. LED build change over.

    Good point, I had not considered that one. Will also check out (if I can). Whilst looking at another vehicle's forum, I came across an article that was talking about Led lights having different lens's to their halogen counterparts. I have just emailed my brother who works at Fmc to see if he can shed any more light on this. Dave
  3. LED build change over.

    I have read all the comments on this topic as I am looking at converting to Led headlights myself. I thought I would start by following Tanisla2's link to the ebay page suggested. On the lower part of this ebay page, I used the Vehicle compatability chart to check my Edge, and got the result of not compatible. But as some of the contibutors to this subject have already fitted these to their Edge's I wonder if the compatabiltiy means light output rather than physical mounting. As an electronics engineer myself (amongst my trades) I take on board all the comments about current draw over wire size, heat produced through a silicon junction, heat sink size location and functionality (as in mounting to basically a plastic frame in the headlight unit). I don't really want to get the brighter halogen''s as also mentioned so I will keep looking at 3rd party led units to see if I can find any that in my mind are more suitable for light output, etc. If I do find any, I will post my findings on here, for others to make thier own minds up as to how good.

  4. Tyre life

    Hi NeilRs Suprisingly I have done just over 10250 miles in my Edge. Tyre wear good, still look like new, all look to have worn the same amount. Dave
  5. Sync3 and Climate screen

    I have Sync 2 with the leather lux pack option. When my seats are on sync 2 displays what heat setting, with small red blocks and when seat cooling is on sync 2 displays small blue blocks to show cooling setting. Dave
  6. security

    There were no codes for either fault or activation of alarm. Which is the bit that I found strange as you would have expected one or the other (or both). Dave
  7. 6 Months On And Still Faults

    I had to cancel the road rattle test as on the day all the rattles had vanished whilst driving to and from work. Will wait to see if/when they come back and reboot.
  8. Auto Main / Dipped Beam

    I have not had this problem with my Edge (though I have had quite a few other problems). Just a thought, could the little window where the front facing camera is be fogged up causing the sensor to malfunction. As noticed one day on my car that was fogged up causing lane assist problem (different from when lane assist totally stopped working in my car). Dave
  9. security

    Thats just it though. It has been to dealers who plugged it in and could not find any fault codes, hence added to my list in the faults diary. Dave
  10. security

    Ooops just realised posted this in wrong section. On subject of security though, my alarm has gone off twice now for no apparent reason. This has been added to my faults diary that is on going. Dave
  11. 6 Months On And Still Faults

    Hi All It seems to me that a couple of my posts have not appeared for some reason. Car went in to have oil leak sorted and other problems, rattle from tailgate, N/S/F door rattle. N/S/R door rubber seal replace, Pdi wax. Oil seal replaced, door seal replaced, wax done, no action on rattles as could not detect anything. Going back next Tuesday for a road rattle test. Faults diary already being filled up, seat belt warning (when I was wearing it), Sensors in car park, etc. Once I get what I think is enough, then back to the dealers for the next round of repairs. I am still really enjoying my car though, despite all these problems. Dave
  12. servicing

    It seems to me that a couple of my recent posts for some reason or other did not get posted on these forums. My dealers gave my car the interim service (as I think of it) after just having it for a year. During this service, they found an oil leak from basically the rear diff, telling me that an oil seal had gone (have not been excessive with my car, just normal road use). Got this work done on warrenty. As to the cost of the interim service, it was for free both parts and labour, due to the problems I have had with my car. Other faults now being committed to a "Faults diary" as requested by my dealers. Am going to take the three year warrenty to its limits (if necessary). Dave

    Hi Had my car take the 1 year interim "Service/Check Over" my dealer came back saying had found start of leak from transfer box (on further questioning dealer, found out was actuallyrear diff badically). This being sorted next week on warrenty. Service/Check Over did not cost me anything. Dave
  14. 6 Months On And Still Faults

    Hi At least your wife was able to get out of the car to open the gate, though I would not have expected the sat nav to put yourselves in that predicament in the first place, on some of the roads that we travelled down the foilage on either side was so tall that you could not see over the top of it to get warning of oncoming traffic, let alone get out of the car as it was so close (brushing against the doors). Latest update with my car :- Have got it back from dealers having had the tailgate motor repaired under warrenty. Have tried tailgate several times so far, each time it was behaving itself. But they did not look at any of the other issues (apart from the ones that I am doing a faults diary for). There was even a block of wood stuck to the bottom of my car where it had been up on the ramps for its "First Inpsection Service" as my dealers call it. I pointed out these other items that had not been addressed to the dealers, who told me that they would be looked at as my car has to be booked back in for a fault found during the service. This fault being that they discovered "an oil leak from transfer box that requires investigation". When I asked front or rear transfer box as 4 wheel drive? I was told the rear box. I asked if my car was safe to drive, given that there was an oil leak basically from the rear diff. They told me that it was perfectly safe, even if I were to go on a 200 mile short break trip, as I was/am planning on going somewhere away from it all (as the expression goes). I am now currently waiting for a date to get car booked back in for oil leak, under warrenty of course. When I get the oil leak sorted, I will update again with more news. Dave

    Well, my car currently in having the tailgate motor warranty repair done. And supposedly dealing with other items on list. When I dropped car off they told me would be ready later on today. I remain sceptical on that time scale, given my faults list. Also not to mention the free service they are providing me with, as well as the free of charge courtesy car, a B Max this time. Will let you know outcome when I eventually get my car back. Dave
