Yesterday my Edge started chirping the horn every few minutes while parked.  It seemed like it was chirping a code but it was different every time. The signal lights flashed while it was chirping too.  When I tried to unlock with the key fob, it re-locked a second later and the fob wouldn't lock the vehicle.  It would start without problems and the inside lock buttons worked.. There was nothing different on the dashboard either.


I changed the battery in the intelligent key fob (even though it still read 3V) and everything was normal again!


There was a torrential rainstorm when the problems started, maybe that played a role in the problem.  The Edge had been at the dealer for the day too; I don't know if something happened there.

I don't know your model year, but on my 2016 I recently got a message on the left display to replace the batteries in the Intelligent Key fob. It wasn't displaying any symptoms, yet.


In the 2016, there are two batteries per fob.

Features change with different generations of the Edge.  This was not present in Gen 1.5 (2011-14).

That's strange. I have a clear indicator in my gen-1.0.

If the FOB doesn't open the door, time to change the battery.
