SOLVED: Help: Sync 3 upgrade minor climate, display, steering wheel button issues

Post by kingminivan » Wed Jan 23, 2019 5:40 pm

Hi all, I have a 2014 Ford Edge SEL that had MFT, and I bought a used Sync 3 module from a 2017 edge. I have, with forscan, programmed what I think needs change for the APIM to enable dual climate, but I’m left with a few issues I a hoping you all may have some insight on.

1. Climate
- I have dual climate and heated seats in my Edge. I have selected the options for dual climate, auto, and heated seats only in the APIM forscan. What I’m left with is a climate screen with buttons that have no effect. I was able to remedy this somewhat by changing the “climate strategy” from “NA climate strategy” to “EU climate strategy-C1MCA”. This change allowed most of the buttons to work, and I can see them reflected in the physical buttons, but the auto temperature always reports “Off”, and the heated seats buttons do not show on climate menu. They are on the homescreen, but do not enable heated seat function.

2. Steering wheel controls
- the voice/call rocker button and song-skip rocker buttons on the edge do not work, though everything else including the volume do. Seemingly just the ones that would interface directly to APIM.

3. Display backlight remains on after vehicle shutdown
- the sync 3 display backlight stays on after I shut down and lock the vehicle. It hasn’t killed my battery overnight, but I still don’t want that on all the time. I’m not sure what is keeping it awake, but since I have a matching stereo unit, I’m going to upgrade the acme stereo physical unit and see if that has anything to do with it.

If anyone has similar experience or ideas how to tackled these remaining issues I would appreciate the help!

For reference for anyone else who has had this issue, I have resolved it thanks to help on fordedgeforum:

The CGEA (common global electrical interface) version is set in 7D0-01-01 xxx*-xxxx-xxcc. For my 2014 Ford Edge SEL, this requires 1 for CGEA 1.2, which is what I was missing. I hope anyone else who has had this issue can be helped by this.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this. Can you further elaborate?
