Issue with AdvanceTrac warning
pdilow posted a topic in Mods & TechI have a 2011 Edge Limited. When I start it up if I don't move it (just stay in park in the driveway) for a couple of minutes it will start beeping and say "Service AdvanceTrac" and "Collision Warning not available" at the same time. After a second of beeping the warnings disappear. If I continue to sit there they will come on again. After about five minutes of going back and forth the warning light will eventually stay on. If I restart the car they disappear. If I get in the car, turn it on and start driving I never see a warning for either issue. Has anyone heard of this or have any ideas what's causing it or how to fix it? Thanks.
"Service AdvanceTrac" on after dealership repair
mobrien118 posted a topic in Brakes, Chassis & SuspensionHello, I had my 2011 Edge in to the dealership 2 weeks ago to perform the work described in "Bulletin 13N02" - ("Extended Warranty on Brake Booster on Ford Edge"), due to moderately severe issues with the brake pedal caused by a torn brake booster. I got it back from them and the next day the "Service AdvanceTrac" warning came up on the instrument cluster. It only happens when the vehicle is idling for a bit. I called the dealership back to report what was going on and they said "It is probably just a coincidence" and "We will take a look at it for $199, which will be applied to any repair." Seriously? A new warning *related to the brake system* comes on the day after you complete work on the brakes, and you suggest that it is a coincidence...? Anyway, does anyone know what the common causes of this issue are? Especially ones that could be caused by replacing the brake booster... Thank you *very* much! --mobrien118
2011 Dead Battery Issues????!??!?!?!??!
rob218 posted a topic in 2011 Edge & MKXHello All, I have owned a 2011 Ford Edge Limited for 2 years. Love it! Almost 40000 miles and almost without a problem. Recently, my OEM battery went on my Edge. Not a big deal, I got my full usage out of it. I went to Walmart and had the battery replaced (reason being price differential between FORD and Walmart was astronomical). However, immediately on getting the battery installed my ((SERVICE ADVANCETRAC LIGHT)), ((TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT)) and ((COLLISION WARNING LIGHTS)) are all illuminated at a constant. This was never a problem before and even when the battery was jumped from a dead stop they all functioned fine. Here is my question before I waste the time going down to Ford (which is probably what I should of done prior) could it be the battery itself is the wrong type for the vehicle? Car runs smooth. No other electrical problems whatsover. Could it be that? Or any recommendations other than that, that it could be?. Thanks.
