Car jerks and anti lock/traction control system tries to engage during turns to left pulled codes from car they were P1650 power steering, dealer said this was tied to anti roll and also control transmission and brake system and would cost me $930 to repair, next code was P1703 brake switch, then code P1780 transmission control. Its obvious Ford Motor Company knows theirs a problem with this type of auto..research on internet show this same problem since 2007 or so to present!

problem #1

Edge 6-cyl

  • 32,000 miles
Started noticing a vibration in steering at slow speeds when pulling into or out of parking spaces. Took to the dealer for repair at 34,000 miles a few weeks later and dealer at first could not duplicate the issue, then with my help identified it as a power steering pump and replaced. The next day, say issue and they then stated it was a normal characteristic of car model. Warranty has since expired and has gotten significantly worse and mileage is currently 49K as I am a sales rep and log a lot of miles. I also began getting a loud popping noise in the front from both sides at about 38K miles, predominantly left side, especially when making low speed turns and/or going over small bumps, like when entering or leaving a parking lot. I have not taken it to the dealer for inspection but have had a local midas check for an issue twice with nothing found, but issue is also getting much worse.
