How can I repair a broken computer on a 2008 Ford Edge?

Asked by Oct 02, 2015 at 11:12 AM about the 2008 Ford Edge

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On my dash, the car is telling me that the brights are on, the tires are flat,
ESC is off, my doors are open, "check brake system", parking brake is on,
and more. None of these are true, so I assume the computer is damaged/a
plug is loose or dirty. How can I repair this?

What is the condition/voltage of your SUV's battery?

93,095

Have you recently had a low battery or the battery replaced?

The battery could probably be replaced (has about 50,000 miles on it), however the voltage is solid and I figure I have a little more life left on it. I did try resetting everything by disconnecting the positive cable and leaving it overnight. Unfortunately it did not fix the problem.
