    Hello from the Gulf of Mexico

    They switched from dual to single horns. Lots of DIY dual upgrades on Edges. Do a forum or Google search

    2017 MKX Oil leak-recurring

    Main seal leaks are pretty rare even on higher mileage vehicles. Is it possible the oil wasn’t changed on schedule or that it ran out of oil? There was a problem with the 2.7L oil pans on some vehicles.

    2021 Nautilus front tire edge ware

    Well that’s about all you can do at this point. Maybe try running 2-3 psi higher than specified. If it persists have a good tire shop look at it.

    2021 Nautilus front tire edge ware

    20” or 21” wheels? When was the last rotation? Do the rears have the same pattern? Thats typical of low pressure but you said you checked it so I’m at a loss.

    Try rebooting sync 4 by holding the power and right seek buttons together for 20 seconds.

    Water issue spare tire area

    Check the weatherstripping around the rear hatch. Also look for holes in the floor.

    Is it the horn or a chirp?

    Only a small percentage of water pumps fail but when they it’s bad. Keep the coolant changed every 2 years or so and chances are you’ll be fine, The double beep is because your wife exited the vehicle with the only fob so it’s warning you not to drive off without it. To avoid it keep a fob in the vehicle, don’t close the door all the way or turn the vehicle off before shutting the door.
