  1. I have a 2008 edge limited I purchased in May and now have the darndest thing happen with my liftgate. The first issue was when I would use any button to open the liftgate it would open, ding 3 times and then start to automatically close. It wouldn't do this all the time, but frequently. I read to try to reset it by opening and then closing manually. This would periodically work, but it always happened again. Now, however, the power feature is not working at all. Power liftgate is "on" from the instrument panel. When I push any of the buttons it "clicks" like it is enagaging but it never opens. I have to open it manually and it has a lot of resistance. Once manually opened it will not stay open it wants to fall back closed right away. My head has been in the way several times so needless to say I want to get this issue resolved ASAP.
  2. I have a 2016 MKX that I believe has a bad rear mirror motor. I have purchased the new motor, but need advice removing the mirror glass to access the mirror motor. I have searched everywhere, but have only found a video that essentially forces the mirror off by reaching behind it and pulling on some clips. I can't really get my fingers behind the mirror glass, and am afraid to force it off the clips for fear of breaking the glass, which is available but very expensive. Does anyone have advice on how to remove the mirror glass to get access to the motor?
  3. SSM 47398 – 2015-2018 Edge Vehicles – 2.0L EcoBoost With 6F35 Transmission – Rattle Noise From Engine Flex Plate Some 2015-2018 Edge vehicles equipped with a 2.0L EcoBoost and 6F35 transmission may exhibit a rattle noise from the transmission bellhousing area while running. This may be the result of a cracked engine flexplate. When replacing the flexplate, lubricate the torque converter pilot hub with Multi-Purpose Grease XL-5-A (ESB-M1C93- before reassembling. Make sure the transmission locator dowel pins are correctly installed. If the dowel pins were pulled out of the engine block, new dowel pins will need to be installed in the engine block. Failure to do so could result in a repeat repair. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 307-01A. Engineering is investigating, monitor OASIS for updates. To assist with the investigation use the Report a Vehicle Concern link at the bottom of the OASIS report and fill out the form. APPLICABLE VEHICLES 2015 – 2018 CAR: DQ CD539N EDGE

  5. hi there just wanted to introduce my new to me 2016 ford edge sport with 25k miles. I just had it lowered with H&R springs and I am very pleased. Next upgrade will be the stereo not sure when.
  6. Here is some photos of my 2016 edge sport lowered with H&R springs.
  7. One of us (!) left the dashcam on while our Edge sat unused for two weeks. In that amount of time, the battery (less than a year old) drained completely, so completely that the instrument panel wouldn't light, couldn't move the gear shift out of park, etc. Dead dead dead. A jump starter just made the starter solenoid click, wouldn't crank. A long overnight charge resuscitated the battery, everything's worked fine for a few weeks now, EXCEPT: the A/C turns on automatically on engine start about 75% of the time, that's after I've made absolutely certain to turn it off before killing the engine. Is that as weird as it seems to me? Or am I so unaware that it's done it all its life and I just haven't noticed?? Thanks for any help, Jim

  9. Hi everyone! I'm hoping I can get some help here before having to go spend lots of money at the dealer The voice command button on my steering wheel has recently stopped working. I push it aaaaaaaaaand......nothing. The top part of the button which will redial the last number works fine and all other buttons work. Any ideas? Thanks so much! P.S All software is updated and has been since like August so I don't think it's an update issue.

  13. Hello Everyone, I recently picked up a 2014 Edge in January and have about 2,500 miles on the vehicle. Since I picked up this vehicle in the winter, I've had to use the defrost system to clear the front windshield and side windows. Unfortunately the system has not worked properly and I decided to see if time would fix it. It is not mid-March and since the weather is nearing 32F, I've noticed that the defrost system works great above freezing. I believe that the A/C unit is not turning on above freezing as the air temperature inside the vehicle becomes colder when the thermometer reads above 32-33 degrees Fahrenheit. But then once again the temperature drops below 32-33F outside, and the defrost stops working (no more "dry" air) and the windshield and side windows frost up very fast, literally within a matter of seconds. (I'd love to video record this but as you know, it's very dangerous while driving). So basically, do any of you have this problem or know if it is a known issue with Ford? I will be taking it to a dealership very soon as it is a very serious driving hazard. On many occasions I've had to pull over and towel off the inside glass surfaces simply to continue driving. I've tried every A/C, Temp, fan speed combination and they all seem to have minimal effects. I've manually turned the A/C button on (the Edge is the first vehicle I've owned when you hit the defrost button that the A/C "light" doesn't turn on) along with the defrost and that has no effect when the outside temperature is below 32F. This is a very frustrating issue as everything else on the Edge has been great. Thank you in advance!

  15. I have a set of Oracle Halo lights for the 2011-2014 Ford Edge models. These are the plasma models so the ring is solid unlike the SMD models where each LED is visible, they are unopened and cost me $160, I can sell them and price match them for $25 under whatever the cheapest you can find with free shipping. I can also provide pics upon request!

    Trouble turning on after refuel

    I have a 2013 Ford Edge Limited with around 100k kms on it, and it seems to be running fine. Though after refuelling, the car has trouble starting up, when turning on the car, the dash will come on but the wheel will remain frozen (as in I can't turn it), after attempting to turn on the car 2-3 times, it will eventually hit a turn on where you will hear the engine cranking for 15-20 seconds and it turns on normally after this. The issue then disappears till next refuel. Any advice is appreciated.
  17. Hello, First post, just bought 2017 Ford Edge Titanium and found the driver side wipe acts oddly and stutters, stops mid cycle, but turn wipers up to high a few cycles they seem to synch up. The passenger side seems fine. Oddly enough we saw the same performance on another 2017 Edge we test drove. Please help as this is very troublesome for me. Thanks!

    2012 Edge Ecoboost Stutter

    Basic Info 2012 Ford Edge SEL FWD 2.0L Ecoboost 116xxx Miles Tow Package 3rd owner 245/50/R20 Spark notes on the story: Purchased early January 2017 With the known DOOR AJAR issue. Took to dealer for this repair and asked for any recommended service and I requested a transmission fluid change as well. Dealer advised not to change Transmission fluid as "it may actually cause more problems" but advised on a spark plug change. According to dealer they did an inspection on everything else (fluids,Belts,timing, Filters ETC) and it all appeared to be fine. But I'm no mechanic so how the hell do I know. Replaced the plugs (for an outrageous cost might I add seeing as the 2.0 only needs 4 at 3$ a plug) and the door ajar issue running me about $475. Now the engine has started to stutter a bit but only at low RPM. Almost feels to me like the engine may be misfiring on one cylinder but not all of the time and only when I am stepping on the gas lightly. so far no engine lights or warnings. and it seems to be running perfect at higher rpm and highway speeds. typically i experience this issue in the morning when i first start driving the car and keep in mind it had been strange weather here in KY all the way from 20 degrees to 65 in the last week or so. I had mentioned in a previous post that i had thought this may be turbo lag but someone dismissed that theory. Any help would be appreciated. Best Regards, B
  24. I'm going to apologize right off the bat if I suck at searching and couldn't find another post that answers this.. Has anyone in Canada, who has a 2013 edge with DRLs as the headlights, successfully installed HIDs that do not flicker when DRLs are active? Anyone in Canada with a 2013 edge install LED headlights (also function as DRLs during the day, full lights at night)? I'm looking around at a few places but most are located in the US and shipping costs are about half the cost of the kits. If I go through something like Amazon, they tend to be cheaper quality it seems. Any recommendations, tips, etc.. ? Thanks in advance!

    Register Ford Water Pump Design Issues

    I've just encountered the dreaded water pump issue and am facing the prospect of potentially needing a new engine. That said, I'm in good company judging from this and other forums, I'd like to encourage those who have encountered this problem to register your issues with the NHTSA and Ford. It is likely nothing will come from this but silence ensures complacency. We all know that water pumps are maintenance items, but Ford managed to turn a repair of a few hundred dollars into something that costs well over a thousand dollars...IF you happen to catch it before it destroys the engine! Thank you for your support! Included in my NHTSA complaint 11098462: I own a 2011 Ford Edge Limited with a 3.5L, 6 cylinder engine. The vehicle has been faithfully maintained since I purchased it at ~30,000 miles. On 5/25/2018 while driving out-of-state and with approximately 120,000 miles the vehicle began exhibiting symptoms of stalling at stops and while parking; there were no warning lights or indications of trouble. Pulling off the road I inspected the automatic transmission fluid first, since that seemed the most-likely culprit. During this check I overheard a lot of noise as hot coolant was being ejected into the coolant overflow reservoir and it was while the car was parked that the overheat indicator first sounded. After shutting off the engine I noticed water on the pavement under the vehicle. I arranged for the vehicle to be towed to a Ford dealership where it was determined the coolant pump had failed. Though completely without symptoms until the final few minutes, because the pump is driven by the engine's timing chain, enough damage had been done that a significant amount of coolant had entered the engine. The engine would start, but pressures in cylinders 2 and 4 were compromised and unknown other damage had occurred. The Ford service advised that the pump replacement would cost on the order of $2,000 and that life-expectancy for the part was 150,000 miles - two numbers that seem incongruous by themselves for a maintenance item. In addition, the absence of a cooling system warning facilitated driving the vehicle while catastrophic damage was caused to the engine. Not Included in Complaint: In the days since I have read numerous other complaints from owners of vehicles equipped with this engine who have also suffered a loss due to this inferior design. Ford should be required to make owners aware of this issue, caution them to vigilantly monitor coolant temperature, the level of coolant in the overflow reservoir and the presence of fluid at the weep hole (also very difficult to observe). Ford should also install a sensor on the coolan recovery tank to warn operators of low coolant levels and greatly improve the life expectancy of the water pump, given the complexity and expense involved in maintenance.
