problem #28

  • 14,600 miles


I own this 2015 Edge for less than a year and less than 15,000 miles. Driving on a Sunday afternoon at 35 miles per hour to pick pumpkins and the transmission just starts spinning. We pull over and transmission is completely shot will not move car. Call aaa and have it towed to the nearest dealer carbone Ford in bennington Vermont. This is not where it was purchased but it is where I have it serviced. So the first thing they tell me is Ford will not issue a loaner vehicle nor will they pay for a rental. They tell me they first must "download the data from their computer to Ford, so that Ford can decide whether to fix it or replace it." This took two full weeks. In the third week Ford told them they could repair it and the parts were sent. In the fourth week I was promised the car Wednesday and then "absolutely Friday" it is now Saturday and no car. I have rented a car for four full weeks going on five. The killer is that aamco would have taken two days to fix or replace my transmission and Ford thinks this is somehow not their fault therefore no loaner vehicle.

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.

  • 6,200 miles
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.

My car is Ford Edge 2015 with only 439 miles on it. I was turning right when attempted to accelerate the car just shut off by itself. I managed to drift into a parking lot to stop the car.. no check engine light was on just a message displayed on the dash "full accessory power active" and the green light on the starter button was flashing. Had to put the car in park and wait 2-3 min until I could successfully restart it. Request research help

The contact owns a 2015 Ford Edge. While driving approximately 50 mph, the vehicle lost power without warning. The vehicle was coasted to the side of the road, turned off, and restarted; however, the failure recurred. The vehicle was towed to a local dealer, but the failure was unable to be duplicated. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and promised to investigate the issue. The failure was not diagnosed nor remedied. The failure mileage was 83,082.

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.

I Ford Edge has a bumping sound on the passagner side. It was a brand new vechile. But it made this noise. Come to find out after it broke down the throttle body and power train. I was told by the dealer that their was a recall by fcc said their was no recall. Fcc would not buy the car back. The dealership did "fix" it but what really is a fix ( a patch) which means it will break down again. The car would not crank or make any noises! it just stopped in a parking spot.

Fwd 3.5 V6, 7 month old car with 12,200 miles- driving on interstate when engine just quit with no warning. Wrench symbol illuminated on dash. After shutting down, car was able to be restarted, only to have the same problem after 3-5 minutes. Car was towed to Ford dealer, where problem was diagnosed as a faulty throttle body. Dealer said they see a lot of this problem and that I was fortunate that they had the part in stock. I felt I was fortunate to be able to safely pull the car over, without causing an accident. Car was repaired the next morning.

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 żdriveż 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. IżM 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.

I was driving on a busy highway at about 45 mph and I couldn't accelerate. Luckily I was able to coast off to the side burn. My car only has 6700 miles on it. They towed it to the dealership and the dealership told me that they can't get it into to look at until August 1st. The apparently won't even give you a loaner car in the meantime. Very frustrating. This could have been a very dangerous situation.

Driving with cruise on at 55 to 60, yellow wrench comes on after feeling the car shutter, cruise stops working but was able to keep it up to speed. Kept driving, at every stop light the car acts like it wants to stall but doesn't, then acts like it is in 3rd or 4th gear when taking off. Shut the car off and re-started and it acted fine. Then, the next day, the same thing happened when my wife was driving on her way to work in stop and go traffic. This yellow wrench came on about 10 months ago and it cleared when shutting the car off. Dealer said to keep an eye on it and it may have been a glitch. Spent a ton of money on this car and we don't even feel safe driving it! getting the throttle body replaced as we speak so hopefully that will fix it for good. Less than 15,000 miles on the car.

While driving home in my 2015 Ford Edge titanium, I turned into a side street and pressed the accelerator to continue driving. Car shut down completely. I could not advance. After sitting for a few minutes, everything came back on. I was able to restart the vehicle and made it home. A car that puts my life in danger like this could also put other lives at risk. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be addressed.

Etb electronic throttle body failed while driving putting me in danger on the road and causing my car to go limp. I was driving 70 mph in a 75 and lost power and control of the vehicle. It was all I could do to put the car on the shoulder without an accident. The wrench light came on the dashboard. It was towed to texarkana and I am in rockwall tx waiting on 15000 of these parts are on back order with Ford to come in for my car. This is hopeless. It's dangerous to have this car stall like that and to know 1.6 million have already.

Throttle body. Ford Edge titanium new car - have for roughly 6 months - 10,000 mileage driving on highway doing 65 - 70 miles an hour. Car makes a beep noise and a large wrench appears in the left screen on the dashboard. No ability to use gas pedal which is now locked up - cannot press down. Car is slowing down. Only options to go to side of road and turn off. Car can be restarted. Take to dealership asap (happens again on the way - this time only driving approximately 30 miles an hour). Dealership says it is the throttle body and they have ordered part to repair. Been without a car for a week. Still awaiting for dealership to repair.
