It worked fine yesterday. This morning....same problem. Can't start. We cleaned the sensor and valve. Two days ago. The problem started when we removed a tracking system. Since then, it cranks but doesn't start, till the sun is out.....then it starts. What do you think ?
Ford Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

when it cranks and doesnt start does the security light go out?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'll need to check that. I haven't notice. It started today by getting out of the car, locking the door, waited 5 minutes, unlocking the doors, got the key in and voila!!! It started. It will work thru out today, will check the security lights tomorrow if it doesn't start. Or does this give you a clue?
Ford Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

thanks, ***** ***** security system was interfaced with the tracking system andthe key fobs and/or immobilizer must be reprogrammed or its going to keep acting up.

2013 Ford Edge Remote Programming

FORD REMOTE – THIS PROCEDURE RESETS ALL REMOTES FOR THE VEHICLE. ALL FUNCTIONING REMOTES WILL HAVE TO BE REPROGRAMMED DURING THE PROCEDURE

There are a few different procedures that will program your remotes depending on what vehicle that you have. You can find your exact procedure in your owners manual. If you do not have your owners manual you can try any of the procedures below until you find the one that works for your vehicles

Make sure that you don’t press the brake pedal at any time during or before the procedure.

Procedure A:

1.Close all doors, then open drivers door and press the Unlock button on driver’s door while it is open, insert key into ignition.

2.Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 8 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode. (if the door locks do not cycle, then it was done incorrectly. You must start over by removing key and beginning from step 1)

(Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)

3.Within 10 seconds press any button on the first keyless remote to be programmed. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. If you only have one remote then skip to step 5.
4.Within 10 seconds, press any button on the second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming. Repeat step 4. for all other remotes.
5.Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

*If this does not work try the procedure with the door closed.

Procedure B:
1. Fasten seatbelt and close all doors
2. Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 3 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition OFF. The system will chime to confirm programming mode.
4. Within 10 seconds, press and hold any button on first keyless remote. The system will chime once to confirm programming.
5. Within 10 seconds, press and hold any button on second keyless remote. System will chime once to confirm programming.
6. Turn ignition to RUN to exit programming mode.

Please note: All steps should be performed in fairly rapid succession. If you never get the initial chime or door lock cycle, that means the vehicle has never entered programming mode. You should remove key from ignition, open and close the door and start over.

I couldn't fix the problem. The vehicle only start when the sun is out
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
My mechanic has checked everything. Seems no solution. Today the engine was cleaned with water and it refused to start. I'm guessing a sensor is having issues and wouldn't start when cold. Any idea?
Ford Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Does it crank when trying to start or no crank?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It cranks
Ford Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

You need to check spark, fuel pressure, injector pulse when it will crank and not start and see which one you do not have.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
