Edge CTS Boost PID Issue

Hey guys, i put this under the performance section but no response so thought i'd see if anyone here ever experienced something like this. The turbo seems to be working just great. It's when i'm almost stopped and the PID is reading zero, it just starts beeping and flashing a red "0" at me.

Have you went in and looked at what your "alert" level is set at? I would think if it was at 0, it would do it at anything above but you never know.

I did check the alert and found it was sitting at 40 and the guy at Edge said it should be around 25, so i reset it to that. It's the weirdest thing, started a couple months ago with a random single beep and i never knew which PID it was coming from then finally one day it did it a bunch of times and I saw it was the boost PID. And there's no rhyme or reason and it doesn't do it all the time either which is really odd. It's completely random. It's done it when cold and just heading out to work, it's done it after driving 30 miles and good and warmed up.

Hoping there's nothing wrong with the turbo and after the Edge guys get back after new years that they'll send me a new CTS. They never heard of this issue before either.

Highly doubt it's a turbo issue. Does yours read through the MAP sensor or did you have to drill and tap the intake spyder and install a sensor?

No sensors for turbo on this one, all straight from the OBDC. I still need to tap a sensor in for the EGTs though.

Ok, then it reads through the MAP sensor. I guess it could possibly be intermittently getting screwy readings from it. I wouldn't buy a new one just to try that theory but if you know someone with the same truck, might be able to swap and see if the problem goes away.

Well hoping they'll swap it out under warranty for a new one, but i'll know what my options are in a few days. That's a great idea on testing someone else's. Thanks much for the info.

Wonder if this has anything to do with it. This time last year saw some oil drippage where i park my truck, got underneath, couldn't see where it was coming from. Got on top and saw a puddle of oil in the galley but still couldn't find where it was coming from. Took it to ford and they found i had that cac tube issue, they torqued a clamp and that was that.

Well, noticed oil on the ground late yesterday and checked it out this afternoon. Exact same deal, oil dripping to the ground, puddle of oil in the galley under the intake.

Maybe this is causing my boost PID on the Edge monitor to flake out at slow speed? Should have this squared away in next couple days and will post up if it solves my mystery boost PID issue. Also i didn't have the Edge monitor last year when this happened last time.

Dealer is saying it's a lpop seal leaking. Still working on the boost PID issue on the CTS monitor.
