Towing Tips Needed FORD EDGE 2014

Recommended Posts

Would appreciate flat towing assistance from anyone who has an Edge.  Trying to figure out which fuses to remove to shut off the Dash Computer to prevent battery drain.  I try to start it while traveling but that doesn't always work and so I have to boost/charge batt off the RV when I get to my destination.  Is the issue simply resolved by removing the negative batt cable?  Matt

For a 2014 I think you will have problems reconnecting the fuse or cable with the on-board computer. It is going to reset everything.  I have a 2013 Lincoln MKX and it is an Edge on aesthetic steroids is all.  I have the same problem as you.  Mine is key less start.  Then manual for the Edge states the same thing my manual does.  Start engine and run for 5 minutes and every 6 hours (to long), shift to D then R then N,  Ignition in accessory mode,

My battery will run down if I do not stop every two hours (2-1/2 max) and restart the engine and let run for 5 minutes.  I typically have to take a necessities break every 2 to 2-1/2 hours anyway.  Since I have been doing that I have not had a problem.

The other solution would be to use a "charge line." Here is an example of one type: Charge Line
