    ABS, Traction Control, and Check Engine Lights

    I was thinking the same thing, but if it was loose wires bumps would also set it off. It currently seems to be speed related.
  2. Im back with another new issue on my wife's Edge. We recently replaced the passenger side axle due to a broken tone ring and recently had a coolant leak due to faulty radiator fans. The new issue is is that the ABS, Traction Control, and Check Engine lights all come on while she is driving on the highway. It only happens at highway speeds around 70MPH. They all go away once she parks and comes back later. Driving on roads at less than high way speeds the lights never come on. So far we havent been able to tie it to hitting bumps. Any ideas? My first thought was a wheel bearing or wheel speed sensor or another bad tone ring somewhere.

    Coolant Leak

    Had the issue diagnosed. Had codes read and they were P1285 and code P0480 Bought Motorcraft Part RF295 from RockAuto and had them over nighted for $245. Fans have officially been installed so we will see what happens next.

    Coolant Leak

    Got it to over heat again. This time we dropped it off at the shop to confirm it was the fans. Does anyone have the parts number for replacement fans? Im hoping to have them ordered today so I can have this done by this weekend. We dont plan on owning the car for much longer. Maybe another year or 2 so Im looking at the Dorman OE replacements. Looks like PepBoys has a discount of $50 on the parts right now, but want to make sure Im getting the correct part. Im coming up with part number: Part #: 621-392

    Coolant Leak

    I drove a ton more today. About 45 minutes around town in stop and go traffic with the AC on full blast. Max speed limit of about 45 MPH. No over heating, No smoke, no leaking fluids.

    Coolant Leak

    The tank was near empty. I put in probably close to a gallon, gallon and a half. If it was the relief valve, would coolant have made it on top of the power steering container? If so where is the relief valve located? I will double check it. As of now when the AC is on max, the fans do not come on at all. I have been watching them and havent seen them come on. After my drive to work this morning Im going to take another look.

    Coolant Leak

    I filled it to the fill line, started the system, burped the air, and filled it to the fill line again. Thats a great question. She drove it about 15 minutes and then sat idle in the parking lot for probably another 10-15 minutes at the school with the car running. During my testing Ive let it run for about 15 minutes before a 15 minute drive instead of sitting idle. So far I havent been able to replicate the issue. Once the car heats up and the needle is at about 12 o clock, it doesnt move. My guess is either fans or thermostat at this point caused it to over flow. Ill probably start at thermostat since thats generally a cheap and easy fix. That being said, anything special I need to do to flush the system other than drain the water and refill with anti freeze? Can I use any antifreeze or does it have to be something special like DexCool?

    Coolant Leak

    No idea, I wasnt driving it when it happened and my wife didnt look under the hood. I do know that coolant was found on top of the power steering fluid pump and directly on the wires/area under the coolant container. It was contained to the passenger side of the engine bay. This is why I think it may have been the cap on the coolant container as no hoses are lose and as far as I know coolant doesnt spray around enough to end up on the power steering container if it exits via the weep hole. I didnt see any on top of the engine, valve covers, or alternator.

    Coolant Leak

    We have a 2009 Edge SEL AWD model with 127k on the clock. This car is my wife's daily driver. Yesterday she picked the kids up from school and her engine started smoking. The principal saw some fluid leaking and had her shut the car off. I leave work early and make it to the school and her car lost all coolant. We pulled the car into a spot in the parking lot and left to let it cool as we only live 10 minutes away anyway. Later that night my dad and I went to go tow it to an auto repair facility, but figured we would check the basic things. We brought a bunch of water with us and filled the coolant up with it and let it run for 30 minutes. During this 30 minutes, nothing leaked, nothing over heated, all of the hoses are on tight, and the water is at the same level it was the day the car was leaking. Oil isnt milky and all other fluids are fine. Im thinking it may have been a bad seal on the coolant cap or a bad cap all together. My current thinking is this weekend, I will flush the system and refill with the proper coolant and see if it happens again. Any idea what would cause this? Thoughts?

    2009 Edge with Power Train, ABS, and TC Lights

    So my next question is, is it possible the dealer did something to damage it? The ABS, TC, and Power Train light have never been on on this vehicle aside from starting it up. It went to the dealer to do a full diagnostic. The day I drove it home the ABS, TC, and Power Train light started coming on intermittently and are now on permanently. The picture above is the passenger side and they did note in their diagnostic that the outer tie rod on that side as well as brakes/rotors need to be replaced.

    2009 Edge with Power Train, ABS, and TC Lights

    Had the car apart today. Sensors look brand new, no corrosion, and came apart easily, water seals are solid. However, can someone confirm for me where the tone sensor is located? I did snap some pics of what looks like tone sensor based on pics I saw online.

    2009 Edge with Power Train, ABS, and TC Lights

    The confusion isnt the part, its the name of the part. There are 2 parts with similar names that look similar. One is the ABS Speed Sensor. The other is the wheel speed sensor.
  14. My wife drives our 2009 Edge SEL AWD with the 3.5L V6. It has 115,695 miles on it. We had it in for a diagnosis due to a stuttering issue which has been resolved. Other things noted though were a right outer tie rod and 4 wheel alignment. The light was coming on before the work was performed and we were hopeful that the work would solve this, but here I am. When turning to the left and putting pressure on the passenger side front wheel the ABS, Service Power Train, and the Traction Control lights come on and stay on. Ive read that this is caused by a wheel speed sensor or ABS speed sensor. Im pretty sure we can narrow it down to the right side sensor as the dash lights only come on when turning that direction. It seems to be intermittent making me believe it is not a tone ring issue on the axle. Which sensor is the correct sensor to replace? I have to have the local car part store order it as they do not have any in stock and dont want to order the wrong part.
