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.

Yes i have 2015 Edge SE with just over 6000 miles on it for my wife..Happen to us 15 times as we tried to get back home..Once getting on the freeway, One of the times in a intersection and the last 20 feet from train tracks when i said this is over and called the dealer to send a tow truck!! 10 mins later a train came by..!! someone is going to get killed !! 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!! Its at the dealer and most people seem to think its the Throttle assembly box .Dealer hasn't got back to us and its been 2 days..Even if that's it and they fix it ..i will never trust the vehicle..Not the way i want to live!
