  1. Hi all, I have now received the parts I need from the US to upgrade the cruise control to active cruise control. I have all the modules and settings that need to make it work as well. Is anyone interested in me making this a How To: on the Edge Forum? If not, I'll just sloop off and do it quietly. Happy Friday everyone. Daddy Nev.
  2. Update. DAB is back and is great. Put the rear dash cam in this PM and the DAB cut out straight away. Moved the camera away from the rear window and still no signal. I had to un-plug and keep the camera away from the tailgate to get signal back. So if I want to keep DAB I need to find a new home for the rear dash camera where the camera and cable is not routed near the existing antenna feeds. So Unofix is correct that rear dash cams kill DAB signal. I'll try a metal spiral wrap cable shield or ferrite core if all fails but I'm not feeling confident. I'll not get to look at this until the
  3. Not as half as I am. I can't believe that someone has played with it under their PCP contract or Ford fitted the wrong module. No way did Ford fit the wrong module, so someone has played about with it before we had it. I'm just glad I've got it working for such a low cost, but has taken 5 months and a lot of phone calls and emails and tests to resolve.
  4. Hi all, I am VERY pleased to say that we now have DAB working. Andrew at Vospers was right when he said the RED antenna isolator was the wrong part. How very interesting considering this is how I bought the car. Our Edge was a PCP return, so unless it had a problem before and someone tried changing it, it was fitted with the wrong module. Never mind, I'm slightly over £70 lighter for the two isolators that were needed, but I have working DAB.

  6. So here are the parts we ordered to fix the DAB issue and a little extra to enable the ACC. Update to follow later. I seriously hope the DAB works after this!
  7. All parts have now arrived. Will be fitting this Saturday... Keep you posted
  8. I'd just like to offer my 10 pence worth here. I also have issues with poor halogen projectors and DRL/High beam. I resolved the projector candle lighting with Osram LEDriving 6000k H7 units. I chose these after spending hours and hours trawling the internet for testing and reviews in the US. They are available on Amazon.co.uk for £75 a pair and I rate them at 9/10. They are so good and the build quality is fantastic and not a cheap chineseium crap. The improvement is equal to 50w HID and I would highly recommend. The second but most problematic is the DRL/High beam. H15 is a f
  9. Oh yes. Thank you very much Trent Edge. I have used your info with mine with Vospers Ford and have now found the correct module. 2371298 which is priced at £14.57 inc vat. So thanks Trent Edge and Andrew at Vospers 🙂 I have now ordered and looking forward to getting my radio back
  10. Please can anyone help me. I need a picture of the Ariel amplifier isolators behind the tailgate cover. This is mine below and we believe the red module is the wrong one. Need a close up of the all the info on its covers please.
  11. Hey Guys, I'm having issues with the DAB on my Edge. I have a topic open in the audio forum on this. Is there anyone out there in Edge crew that is willing to pop the rear cover in the tail gate and take a photo of their two DAB modules for me please? I need to compare against mine as the new part number Ford have given me is for the complete apim module rather than the antenna isolators. New ford part No: 2374661 Thanks.
  12. Hey Guys, Still having issues here. Is there anyone out there in Edge crew that is willing to pop the rear cover in the tail gate and take a photo of their two DAB modules for me please? I need to compare against mine as the new part number Ford have given me is for the complete DAB radio module rather than the antenna isolators. New ford part No: 2374661 Thanks.
  13. Hi TrevorB. The car is from one the UK's largest Ford dealers in London and the warranty is by Ford through that dealers network of over 20 branded garages. It's still work in progress, but there is progress. A local Ford dealer has agreed to take the work on (warranty) after I pay the diagnostics fee. However, they need the car for the day and they are not loaning out yet due Covid. So I've to wait until June!!!!! The modules were from a crashed Mondeo with sync 3 NAV and DAB same as the edge. The owner says all was working with the sync and enjoyed DAB every day. I was in No
  14. Update Saturday 1st. I wasted nearly the entire day phoning different Ford dealers, audio specialists and the warranty company yesterday. They all said the same thing. I pay for it up front and claim it back via the extended warranty. Great if I had that kind of money just sitting in the bank, but I don't. The dealer I purchased the Edge from is over 2.5 hours drive away and they will not pickup or loan. So I've had words with Ford customer service and explained everything. They will be getting back to me on Tuesday. So it's a waiting game now and lets see what Ford Motors UK are going to
  15. Todays update. Wife drove into Norwich city this morning and reported Kisstory DAB is working fine. Good signal and clear sounding. Now my assumption is this. Kisstory is only available as Internet and DAB only service. The Tailgate mounted red and black modules must be working as AM, FM and DAB are clearly working. The DAB signal in the city must be higher or better than the outlying little village we live in, or the shark fin antenna is banjaxed. Now the GPS and phone system work phone and that's part of the sharks fin. So where do we go now. Is it that the DAB on sync 3 Edge is just a poor
