Engine goes to idle while underway, orange wrench appears on panel, no response from throttle. Happens without warning at any time, high or low speed. Extremely dangerous. I cannot imagine why there has been no recall on this.

My 2015 Ford Edge suddenly lost power without any warning as I was driving at a slow speed on my residential street. Fortunately I was not in a high-speed traffic area, as this situation is obviously a serious one. The next day I took my car to the dealer and they were aware of this issue happening in Ford vehicles. It was a defective throttle body and they were able to replace it the same day. I am hoping this new one will not pose the same problem. I am also seeing online that this same issue has been occurring in the 2015 Ford Edge, as well as other Ford vehicles in prior model years. I cannot understand why there is not a recall on these vehicles, and if this issue has been out there for several years already, why is there not a permanent fix" the vehicle loses power and either you "limp" off the road with hardly any acceleration, or worse power whatsoever. How can this not be considered a life threatening situation especially if the semi truck behind you cannot slow down in time when your car decides to turn itself off" or making a turn in a busy intersection... an oncoming vehicle may not be able to avoid crashing into you as you desperately try to restart your vehicle. This is not rocket science. It is clearly a dangerous issue that needs attention. Do the right thing and issue the recall and see to it that this part gets a permanent fix.

Vehicle lost power, engine continued to run but would not move. Problem started after stopping at light. Dealership said throttle body problem and reset computer. This has happened on several occasions but it does not store code, so they will not fix it. I have safety concerns about getting vehicle in traffic.

I've had my 2015 Ford Edge for only 4 months and with only 4600 miles on my way home from work Sept. 15th going down a two lane road my car lost power without warning I could not accelerate and the wrench and air bag warning lights came on. Thank god I was not on the freeway going 70 miles an hour I was able to coast to safety so I pulled to the side of the road. The vehicle was making a very loud noise. I called Ford road side assistance. When he came out he turned the vehicle off and on and the warning lights came off and the vehicle drove normal. I was able to get home. I decided to take it to the nearest Ford dealer the next morning however they could not help me till Wednesday or Thursday of the following week. I decided to go home and call the dealer where I purchased the vehicle and as I was driving up my driveway it happened again this time I decided to record with my phone the warning lights and the noise it was making. I called the dealer and they told me to bring it in to them right away however I was not about to drive it again knowing it was probably going to do it again. (very scary). Called Ford road side assistance again and it was towed there. I received a called later in the day saying that the throttle bodyneeded to be replaced. Got my car back that afternoon. However, 2 weeks earlier my vehicle was at the dealer because the engine light came on took it in and the catalyst converter was bad he to be replaced. Of course no part available had to wait. My vehicle was in there for 10 days. (they did provide a rental at no charge)

I purchased a new 2015 Ford Edge titanium fwd in June 2015. It stalled twice in the 1st month I owned it at a stop light and then a stop sign. Then it didn't stall again until Sep 2016 after exiting I-79 and coming to a stop to turn. On all occasions the engine start button was flashing green and the dash was fully lit up with a notice that full accessory power was available. On all times the engine restarted ok. The dealer could not find any computer fault codes and even put on a flight recorder(black box) but in 2 weeks it didn't stall so I could not set any data by pushing the joy stick. Rather than do nothing I asked if the could perform tsb 15-0123 PCM recalibration with the latest software just to be sure that wasn't a problem that I noticed on other websites and Ford has a record of it. It just now a wait and see if there's any further stalling. There is also a mention that a throttle body could be the problem but Ford doesn't want to do anything until a computer says there is a problem and with what! this could be dangerous. The service dept. Filed an engineering hotline case#307336. Don't know what became of that.

The contact owns a 2015 Ford Edge. While driving approximately 65 mph in two lane traffic, the vehicle randomly stalled without warning. The contact was able to coast the vehicle over to the side of the road. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was determined that this was a known issue by the manufacturer and that the throttle body needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and provided no solution. The approximate failure mileage was 4,500.

At 6200 miles on a clear warm day of about 95 degrees, at about 40mph on a flat city road, the car lost all power of acceleration, and I had to pull over and come to a complete stop. The engine light and a wrench light appeared on the dash display, and hill start assist unavailable message appeared. I put car into park and shut off engine, waited about 2 minutes, and restarted engine. The engine idled roughly and the accelerator pedal produced no results when pushed. Shut engine off again and waited about 5 minutes and restarted. Accelerator pedal worked normally, and drove off. Wrench light went out and engine light went out after about 20 miles. No accidents were caused as there was enough time to react and travel was on a local street while going straight.

Car died while driving, because I was in traffic at 30 mph, going downhill on 20% grade, I threw the car in neutral and was able to restart the car. This action, according to dealer, cleared the computer and no incident was found. After 8 days of supposed diagnosis they tried to get me to pay a deposit of $500 to put a data recorder in my vehicle and said I would have to trigger it first before it would record future incidents, would this be before I try to save my life from the tractor trailer behind me moving at 70+mph

I was starting to drive on the busy street at about 30 mph when of the sudden the vehicle slowed down to maybe 5 mph within 2 seconds, mind you my foot was pressing the gas pedal at the time the car lost speed, light comes on, something to do with hill assistance, then the wrench light come on, luckily this happened just before the intersection and I decided to go to the left turn lane. I was able to pull to the side of the road at a 2-3 mph speed, turned the car off and back on with no problem, drove it home. This morning (7:00am) I drove my car to the Ford dealership in town, explain the issue to the adviser, she said sounds like the throttle body. They worked on my car, got the phone call around 3;00pm that my car was ready I picked up, this is what the invoice says: 4722 defective etb. Light off, obtain P2111, perform a datalogger road test and make a recording. Review recording. At time of power loss etc actual ande desired way out of spec, T/P readings are erratic and full of spikes, install a new etb, clear code and road test, engine runs good, full power, light off and no codes return. Will see how this works....

While driving vehicle, it shudders and the engine shuts off. The car lights stay on in the interior and exterior - but the information screen goes black and then the back up camera turns on. Car will not accelerate -- stays like this for a few moments then goes back to normal but then happens again -- usually 3 times within 3 minutes. This is the second time my vehicle will be going into the service dept. The first time I was driving on a major highway going 75mph, speed dropped to 60mph within a matter of seconds - would not accelerate and rear view camera was on. Second time, at a stop light and the car shuddered and turned off when driving through the green light the engine shut off again. Then, as the vehicle was being pulled off the road and out of traffic the engine shut off again. Vehicle was towed to service dept. Ford says there is nothing that can be found.

While traveling a freeway at 70 mph, the engine cut out. I was in the outside lane, luckily. I was able to drift over into the parking lane. I waited for a few minutes - started back up and resumed carefully to my destination. The next day it happened twice and in various conditions: From a stop, and then when I was accelerating to get onto a freeway. When I drove to my home 200 miles away. I was careful and stayed in the outside lane of the interstate. Just before home, out of the blue, the engine cut off. I was able to drift to the side of the road and stop and restart and get home. Today I called for an appointment at the dealer and was informed it would be three days before I could get in. I am very disappointed with this situation. My car only has 8,000 miles on it.

On 26 July 2016, I encountered a sudden and inexplicable problem with my vehicle that involved the loss of the ability to accelerate... while I was in traffic on a busy road. The gear shift was still in the ¿drive¿ position when the incident occurred requiring me to drift into a driveway/parking lot, narrowly averting an accident. I was in the process of attempting to pass another vehicle. Needless to say when this incident happened I found myself, and my grandchildren, in a very dangerous situation. As the moment the vehicle is unsafe to operate. On 27 July the same issue reoccurred three more times (all on local streets), once while I was in an intersection, while I was on my way to the cowles Ford dealership to have the vehicle serviced. The service manager, took my vehicle in (he graciously provided a loaner vehicle) and one of the service representatives, hypothesized that the problem might be related to the throttle. I¿M not sure if the issue was mechanical or related to the computer system. The service manager indicated that it may take about a week to service the vehicle due to the volume of service requests, so I will not know if the vehicle is drivable until after the first week of August.

See attached pdf file for complaint. While traveling at near highway speed (45 mph) on a late Saturday afternoon, July 16, 2016, my 2015 Ford Edge with only 9,000 miles, suddenly lost power and I could not accelerate. Fortunately I was on a decline of a bridge, so I was able to coast to the next corner and get off of the main thoroughfare. I was at risk of a vehicle crash, however, fortunately there were no cars following me at the time. The ¿wrench¿ warning indicator came on, and after searching the owner's manual, I called Ford roadside service to have car towed to dealership where it was purchased new only 7 ½ months earlier. There were no warning signs prior to this failure! on Monday (July 18), the dealer called to advise the ¿electronic throttle body¿ would arrive Tuesday and I could expect my car back Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday morning (July 19) I was called and advised the part is on back-order and not expected to be received until July 29. You can imagine my displeasure at hearing this, knowing I¿ll be without my car for two weeks, assuming the part arrives on schedule

Vehicle stalled in heavy traffic on the freeway and had to coast to the side of the road. Very dangerous situation. Amber check engine light came on and a warning light showing a yellow wrench came on. Vehicle ran in limp home mode only. Took vehicle to the dealership and the throttle body was replaced. On line reports indicate the throttle body has been a problem at Ford for the last several years and it apparently is still not fixed on the 2015 Ford Edge....updated 08/15/16
