Edge SEL 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles


The battery to begin with is way to undersized. Ford designers didn't leave hardly any room in the engine bay

for anything bigger so this will only get worse.

The relays as they age seem to be getting stuck in the on position & the car goes dead like dead flat in as little as 4 days now. I'm a mechanic by trade & it blows my mind they thought that was a adequate sized battery for the car.

Edge Sport 2.7L V6

Happened twice now 2015 Edge Sport. Drove the night before and this morning not a volt in the battery. Would not even light a test light. disconnected the + terminal and slow charged the battery during the morning. Hooked up the + cable, car started fine. Advance auto tested battery to be "low". Drove it more and by battery load tester showed battery to be very strong! It goes to shop in morning, will post findings. This is not the first time, and don't think it is battery..........

Edge SEL 3.5L V6

Battery was 4 years old and I had been charging it occasionally month for 6 months, but now almost weekly. Went to a Ford dealer for the replacement. The new battery Motorcraft mfg. date 7/19 was installed and I took it home and connected my electronic diagnostic charger and it showed 74% charged. Not surprised as retailers don't keep the storage batteries on chargers. Battery was fully charged in the morning.

A month later the instrument cluster wasn't set to our default settings so I checked the battery and found it 68% charged. I charged it and got a date to take the car to the dealer. They said they performed a test and the new battery "was defective" and replaced it with a new Motorcraft mfg. 8/19 battery. Same drill, checked battery it was low, charged it overnight. NOW a week later the dash settings get flitchey, battery is showing 76% charged right after wife's shopping trip. Looked on YouTube see there is a page on charging problems with an Edge. Complicated diagnostic, but shows ALTERNATOR IS FAULTY.

Had a 2007 Ford Edge and had no problems at all. Living in Mexico and wanted a car with no problems. Bought a new 2015 Ford Edge Titanium in March 2017. Drive the car almost every day (sometimes skip a day). Car drives beautifully. Go out in my garage in the AM and have a dead battery. Car started and drove great the day before. Dead Battery on 8-26-2017 Dead Battery on 10-6-2017 Dead Battery on 13-15-2017 Took the car to a Ford Dealer and had it checked out but they said the electric system was OK. Something is not right.

Edge Titanium 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,367 miles

01/06/17 the battery was completely discharged to 1.8 volts, the battery didn't take charge. The Ford dealer didn't find any current draw in electrical system and replaced the battery.

10/01/17 the new battery was discharged again to 3 volts. After recharging for 2.5-3 hours, the engine started, the loud buzzing noise was coming from the instrument cluster-center console area. The instrument cluster settings changed by itself and it was not possible to change the cluster configuration to original setting. After turning the engine off and on again the cluster settings was possible to restore.

I'm going to take the car to Ford dealer again to diagnose the intermittent electrical short.

Edge Titanium 2.0L Ecoboost 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles

Noticed the car sounded like the battery was getting a little weak when starting, but figured it's only 2 years old and only has 35,000 miles on it so I ignored it. A couple days later, after driving the car to church, went outside to start it to leave church and the battery was completely dead. Jumped it, started it and drove it home. Left the charger on it all night, then called the local dealer and explained what happened the day after. They had us drop it off so they could check into it. Nothing was found that was drawing juice and the battery checked out okay. Less than a week later, battery was completely dead again when we went to start the car to leave one morning. This time, jumped it to get it started then drove it straight to the dealer. The next morning, the dealer said it was completely dead when they went to start it to start working on it. They checked into it, could not find anything that was drawing juice, and the battery failed testing. So, they replaced the battery under warranty. We will see how long this one lasts - especially with colder weather coming soon. This car has already been in the shop for over a week when the throttle body needed replaced, which caused the car to lose power and almost stall when driving. Running out of patience with this car.

This has happened to me twice. Went out to the garage in the morning and the battery is completely dead. After a jump I had the battery tested and it was reported to be fine. So like the other complaints, it's not the battery, it's a slow drain. In both my cases it happened after driving from a night out and I notice the onscreen display doesn't shut down which is an indicator. After the second time I've been cognizant of any signs of power after shutting down.

Not long ago, I had a third instance of the same electrical problem after having my headlights on. Despite pulling into the garage, shutting down, and turning off the lights, when I opened the door to get out the audible bell indicator went off as if I had left my headlights on. I had to crank the engine several times and shut down before it eventually went away.

In all 3 cases it was after using my headlights. I'm of the opinion it may be tied to the switch/knob but that's only a guess. I'd be interested to hear from others whether their occurrences were after the headlights were used.

Third time in a year and a half that I've gone into my garage and battery is completely dead. Jumped battery and charge was holding next day. Reported to dealership where they said, if it didn't happen in the shop, they probably couldn't detect or solve problem. Taking to dealership anyway so they can record my complaint.

Edge Limited 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles

After the car was picked up from the dealer that evening the following morning my wife went out to go to work but as before the remote didn't work. We immediately call back the dealer, they say bring the car in. Had to pop the lock to get in with the key in the fob and get a jump start since the tow truck driver said he won't be able to get the car on the truck unless he dragged it to how it was park and this could damage the car. So we call the dealer and they say jump start it and drive it on the flat bed. We did that.

The car is still in the shop and I call the dealer to ask what was the problem, if it was the battery that need replacement since from before he said the battery was drained. Only to find out he said the battery was good and it was electrical problems that was diagnosed. Hence, they needed a couple days to get it fixed. So I am still waiting to get the car back to see if they fixed the problem.
