In a parking garage, turning right at slow speed and vehicle stalled. No warning, all was going smooth until vehicle just stalled. Vehicle restarted. Informed dealer. Dealer service department "reprogramed PCM per tsb 15-0123". thought all was taken care of until stalled again in March. So reporting now.

Brand new vehicle. "engine stall" without warning. Dealership cannot duplicate and therefore the safety concern remains. Dealership does not care if safety concern remains. Vehicle unsafe to drive. Numerous online complains and no response or action from Ford. This is a serious matter of life and death. I was in dangerous conditions when the car lost power and my life was in danger. I demand that Ford investigates this danger and buy back the vehicle in the meantime

The contact owns a 2015 Ford Edge. While driving 30 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning and all the warning lights on the instrument panel illuminated. The failure recurred several times. After the third time, the vehicle was taken to a dealer where it could not be diagnosed. The dealer received a bulletin about the vehicle and reprogrammed the PCM; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 26,500. Updated 05/04/16

Thee times now my Edge has lost power while driving. The first time was making a left U-turn in a residential neighborhood. The second time was making a right turn into a drive-thru driveway. The third time was in a grocery store parking lot while stopped, waiting for a car to pass. All three times my car lost engine power, with no prior warning. A display popped up stating "full accessory power active". no other lights/alerts came on, including check engine. My radio still worked. While in drive I could literally press the gas to the floor and nothing happened. I had to restart the engine to regain power. I was able to restart the car without putting it into park; I only had to press the brake and the start button. During the initial mechanic visit we road tested and I was asked to try stopping and starting the engine while in drive; I was unable to do so. I now have the car at the dealership for the second time. The first time I was told that because they couldn't duplicate the problem, they couldn't fix it. I showed them research where other customers complained of this issue and it being due to the throttle body. I asked for this to be replaced, and after 5 days of back and forth, they changed it out. Less than 24 hours later it happened for the third time and I took it back in. I mentioned other reports of possible fuel pump issues but they said they were unaware of it being an issue. The said they would try to duplicate it, but otherwise they couldn't do much else. I brought in a picture of the alert, as requested by the first mechanic, but was told it wasn't enough to help them. I am unable to attach the work order at this time, but I have a physical copy for my records.

  • 4,500 miles
On October 27, 2015, my Ford Edge sel 3.5L w/ 4,500 miles stalled after I came to a complete stop and attempted to make a righthand turn. As the vehicle entered the intersection, it stopped responding and stalled. No warning or other symptoms occurred. No warning or error codes displayed. The left message center displayed "full accessory power active." This situation is dangerous as there is no warning and the manner in which it stalls/loses power does not give the driver any indication the car has stalled. Suddenly and without any alarm or error code, the vehicle lost power and stopped responding.

My new Ford 2015 Edge has stalled on me and on the dealership 6 times in 3,000 miles. This forum asks for specifics, so here is one example. I was turning right into traffic, I went to accelerate, and I had no power. The dash lit with a message "accessory power active". I had to pull over and restart. I have had this car at the dealership on and off for over 75 days. Ford issued a tsb #15-0123 on 8/10. My car's computer was updated on 8/12. I was assured by Ford and the dealership that this problem was "fixed". but it is not, I had another occurrence of the stalling issue again on 9/11. The dealership and I have asked Ford for a "buyback" and have been refused twice, without specifying a reason. My car is not fixed, and yet Ford demands I take it back. I have had to park my car, and I cannot drive it. It is a safety hazard, and an accident waiting to happen. I am attempting to arbitrate with Ford on my own. They have had my car 20+ days longer than I have had it in my possession. This is an intermittent problem, and there is no telling when it will happen. I cannot believe Ford has forced me to take the car back. Three of my stalling issues have been in high traffic areas. I have not received what I've paid for. Shame on Ford for wanting me to risk my welfare and the welfare of my passengers in a car that has a major defect.

I was turning right at a speed of 10-15 mph and without warning the engine shut down and all power was lost. I avoided hitting another vehicle by quickly shifting to park and restarted the engine. The only thing I noticed on shut down was the green light on the ignition button was flashing.

I was stopped at a stoplight in clear, warm weather when the engine silently turned itself off. Not realizing this, I attempted to turn, but the Edge was off. Ac and radio remained on. I did not see any warning lights on the dashboard. After a few frantic minutes, I noticed the small green light on the ignition button was flashing. I put car in park and was able to restart engine. We have only driven the car a few times since and no problem. I fear this happening while driving in traffic. Vehicle had 765 miles on it- we had it for 3 weeks.

We had stopped at a red light and then we proceeded through the light and the transmission shifted hard from 1st to 2nd gear (auto transmission) but didn't think anything about it. We then turned into a parking lot at tampa international airport and the vehicle's engine just shut down before we came to a stop. We coasted into a parking space and the automobile was unresponsive to me trying to shut everything down for approximately 3 to 5 seconds. There was a notification that appeared on the dash when the engine shut down but I don't remember what it said. It then allowed me to depress the start/stop button that allowed the electrical system to shut down for a re-start. I then restarted the engine and picked up my passenger and drove home. The vehicle has been problem free before the incident and did not cause any problems on our return drive home. We were very lucky to have been in a parking lot and not on a busy highway pulling in front of oncoming traffic.

Was approaching a 4 way stop while lightly tapping on the brakes when the engine shut down and the message "full accessory power active" showed up in the information display. When the engine turned off it did not buckle or hesitate. Was able to turn vehicle back on by shifting into park.

This problem involves a loss of power in my 2015 Ford Edge-titanium fwd (3.5L ti-vct V6 engine). It occurred after only 2 months of ownership and less than 3000 miles. After yielding at an intersection, I accelerated to turn right. Nothing happened. Thinking my foot slipped off the accelerator, I repositioned and pressed again. Nothing happened. My Edge was rolling slowly, but I was unable to pull off the highway due to being in a construction zone. There were cones on the sides of the road. I stopped the car in the middle of the road and noticed a message on the screen. However, in my frantic state, I did not remember it exactly. The message was something like, power accessories off. I attempted to restart. It wouldn't start, but I realized it was not in park. Once I placed my Edge in park, I was able to restart immediately. Thankfully, traffic was slow, and there was no accident. The service department at the Ford dealership where my Edge was purchased kept it for 2 days and drove it several times. They were unable to reproduce the problem, and they did not find any diagnostic issues. However, they were concerned and did say to return immediately if the problem occurs again. I love this automobile, and I am a first time Ford owner. However, I now fear driving it. After reading several similar complaints on this site and other sites, it appears this has been ongoing for years. Will someone have to die for this to be corrected?

I was driving in traffic, a construction zone. I merged into the final lane and pushed the gas to accelerate. The vehicle just started slowing down. The engine had died completely. No warning lights of any kind beforehand. It just stopped running. The green light on the ignition was flashing, and an error came on the screen saying that the accessories were powered. Fortunately, since I was in construction, I wasn't moving very fast. I was able to cruise a few yards, put it into park and sit. I was still in the one lane of traffic, though. I tried starting the vehicle again several times...nothing. Finally I let it sit for about 30 minutes, then was able to start it again. I drove to the nearest parking lot, called roadside assistance and had it towed to my dealership. Thank god I wasn't on the freeway, or moving faster on the surface street. The dealership has it now, but after reading how many others have the same complaint, I am afraid to drive this car. I've had this vehicle two months.

The car shuts off with no warning while driving. This has occurred 5 times in the past 8 weeks.the first time was a week after we purchased the vehicle and occurred at a stop light, the engine shut off with no warning lights. Three times the engine has shut off while driving at speeds around 25 mph again no warning lights. I was not turning during these times. I have to put the car in neutral and have to press the brake in order to restart the engine. Today the engine shut off while making a turn in an intersection in heavy traffic and almost caused an accident. The vehicles behind us had to slam on brakes to avoid hitting us. This is extremely dangerous. We immediately took the car to the dealership today for service. This has been occurring more frequently and without warning. I am afraid to drive this vehicle.

I had just made a right turn onto a secondary road from a four lane highway. As I was coming out of the turn the car lost power and would not excellerate. I was able to coast to a nearby parking lot. I cut the car off (radio and inside console were working.) after 30 seconds restarted the car and it seemed ok. If I had continued on the highway with speed limits of 55-60 mph, there would have been a real chance of a rear end collision. Very dangerous problem. On line site cargurus.com/cars/discussion-T35446_ds471580 list page after page of examples of exact same problem with other Ford Edges dating to 2009. Took car to dealership today 8-17-15 and tech's could not find anything amiss. Told them about web site and problem with throttle assembly. If throttle sticks in open position, computer cuts power to engine. Dealership pretty much dismissed what I had to say. Engine should not cut off for no reason. Very anxious that this will happen again and outcome will not be good. There was an error message on the console, but I was so frazzled I did not write it down.
