Hi y'all,

 

I have two 2016 Ford Edges. One has the technology package and the other doesn't. The one without the technology package is lower mileage and in better shape. Can I switch the APIM and thus change the technology package from one to the other?

 

Thanks in advance for the knowledge!

From the 2016 Edge Brochure:  Technology Package includes voice-activated Navigation System with pinch-to-zoom capability, and integrated SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link® with 5-year trial subscription, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, Remote Start System, auto-dimming driver’s sideview mirror, and 110-volt power outlet (requires 201A)

 

So if you get these,  no it cannot be switch just by changing APIM unless you transfer all the physical parts as well...

The only things the technology package has is remote start and voice navigation. Will the APIM swap switch the navigation?

Hi Sullyfamily. Just as an FYI: Directly from the 2016 Edge Dealer Order Guide, the Technology Package (available on the SEL, Titanium and Sport) includes :

- Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation System with Pinch-toZoom Capability, SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link
- BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-traffic Alert
- Remote Start System
- Auto-dimming Driver’s Sideview Mirror
- Power Converter 110V Outlet

 

An APIM swap can give your other Edge a fully functioning NAV system, as long as it has all the proper hardware that a NAV equipped Edge should have.

 

Keep in mind that if you have an extended service plan, switching the APIM may/will lead to denied warranty claims on the SYNC/Audio/Climate Control/Electronics/Electrical systems of the vehicle.

 

Good luck.

bbf2530 - thank you for the information!

 

Really the only two features I use are nav and remote start. How would I switch the remote start?

 

I really appreciate the advice!

You should have to know what hardware/wiring/buttons that is in the old one to move to the new one.... then know how to make the new car know it's there.

Could be done if you want to take the time (I'm talking days not hours) and maybe even spend the money needed

Hi Sullyfamily. Sometimes the parts/electronics are still in a vehicle, even when the vehicle does not have that particular option. It is just less expensive for the manufacturer to build them that way, instead of having different wiring harnesses etc. However, in this case, I do not know what remote start parts and electronics are in both of your 2016 Edges, and which parts/electronics are missing and would need to be removed from the donor Edge for the new Edge to make remote start operable. Sorry.

 

My opinion? There would be some combination of parts/electronics/electrical that would need to be removed from the Technology Package Edge and switched over to the non-Tech Package Edge.

 

Good luck.
