Does it get any power? If there is no power it could be that you fuse for the OBD port and the cigarette lighter is blown, that is a 20A fuse, check your manual for which fuse exactly. Or, it could be that the Edge is locked because the previous seller did not return their vehicle to stock.

Andrew, I think if you're getting a black screen, you've simply got a blown fuse for the cigarette lighter. Please check/replace that and try again before you post any further questions.

Next, if the fuse is good (does the lighter work?), what year is your truck? This is important information, because you MAY have bought an incompatible model, and, if so, nothing will make it work on your truck.

Finally, if you bought a "locked" unit, you will have to get the unlock code from Edge. There is no other solution. It is not something any of us can give you! They will charge you a nominal fee for this, but it's better than a unit that doesn't work, right?

Is it a new body style 2004 or one of the bastardized old school looking 2004's?
