Ford Edge 1997
ORIGINATE NEW MASTER KEY:
1. Put the new key into the ignition. Turn it to the ON position. The dashboard security light will flash for 15 minutes. Once the dashboard security light stops flashing, you have five minutes to begin Step 2.
2. Turn the ignition OFF and then back to the ON position. The dashboard security light will flash for 15 additional minutes.
3. Repeat Step 2.
4. Once the dashboard security light has turned off for the third time, the key will be able to function in the car. It has been programmed into the car’s computer and has replaced ALL previous electronic key codes — the computer will not recognize any other key.
ADD DUPLICATE KEY:
1. Put the current key into the ignition.
2. Turn the ignition ON and back to OFF.
3. Remove the current key and insert the new key, turning it ON. You MUST do this within 15 seconds.
4. The security light will switch on for two seconds, confirming that the key has been successfully programmed into the vehicle.

4. Before ten seconds have elapsed, put a new key in and turn the ignition ON. After one second, turn the key back to the OFF position.
5. The dashboard security light will glow for three seconds. This confirms the programming of the new key has been successful.
About Ford Edge
The Ford Edge was revised for 2015, with a new grille inspired by the Taurus and Explorer, new headlights, LED combo taillights, more interior space, and a rear-view camera. The all-new 2.0-L EcoBoost engine with a new twin-scroll turbo to increase low-end torque statistics is standard on this model of the Edge (only the displacement and bore-center spacing carry over). The 2015 model, unlike the previous 2.0-L EcoBoost, has a towing capability of 3500 lb and is available with all-wheel drive. The mid-spec engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that produces somewhat less power. The new 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 is the most powerful engine in the lineup, powering Sport versions.
Ford introduced the Edge to European markets for the first time (as part of the company’s “One Ford” strategy); it sits atop the Ford Kuga. Gasoline engines are not available in Europe; instead, two turbo-charged Duratorq diesel engines, similar to those found in other Ford Europe models such as the Ford Mondeo, are available. Both engines come standard with an all-wheel drive system; two-wheel drive is not an option. The two engines have 180 hp and 210 hp, respectively. The customer’s output is entirely reliant on the transmission, which comes standard with a six-speed manual paired to the 180-hp powerplant. The 210-hp engine is paired with a six-speed PowerShift automated dual-clutch transmission.
In Europe, the Ford Edge was marketed as a high-end big crossover with only high-end trims and diesel engines, with costs 50 percent higher than in North America. Due to low sales, the model was only available in a few regions in 2019, with the last stock sold in early 2021.
In January 2018, Ford announced that the entire Edge lineup (along with the renaming of the Lincoln MKX) would receive a midcycle facelift for 2019, which would include a new aluminum-alloy wheel option for each trim level, new exterior and interior color combinations, and a 12-speaker B&O Play surround-sound system. The Ford 8F35 eight-speed automatic transmission (with automatic stop-start technology) is standard on all Edge models, allowing the base 2.0-L EcoBoost turbocharged inline I4 engine to gain a 5-horsepower (3.7 kW) boost and all Edges to achieve improved US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel economy.
