Ford Edge 2015 - Lost Acceleration Power

5

Asked by May 20, 2016 at 12:50 PM about the 2015 Ford Edge Titanium AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2015 Ford edge only 8900. miles was merging onto a highway,
when the car jerked and I lost all acceleration power.  Luckily, I wasn’t hit by
oncoming cars and was able to avoid hitting the overpass.  I had to roll
while merging onto the highway and get back off after the overpass.  On
the dash panel, a little wrench light came with a warning "hill start assist not
available".  In addition, icon for “Engine Maintenance” lit up on dash as
well.  I Shut the car off and restarted it a couple of times but still had no
acceleration power.  I opened and closed door, waited a few minutes,
restarted car and acceleration power resumed.  Has anyone had any
experience with this?

Take it to the dealership as it is still under warranty. Sounds like communication between the gas pedal and the throttle body was somehow interrupted.

Read this problem after the fact over 30 plus times..is selling cars really worth risking lives!! Now i'm stuck with this piece of crap and even more i have to worry about my wife every day!!
