Ford Edge Recalls
The anti lock braking system and electronic stability control system may malfunction, resulting in the engine not losing power as necessary during an event when loss of vehicle control is activating these systems. Additionally, necessary warning lights detecting this malfunction may not illuminate. This could result in a loss of vehicle control.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
A seam of the fuel tank may develop a fuel leak, due to excessive corrosion from exposure to road salt. This could cause a fire hazard, as well as a fuel odor.
The steering gear motor mounting bolts may corrode and fail, causing power steering assist on the vehicle to be lost. This would cause extra effort steering the vehicle, and could result in loss of vehicle control.
A fuel leak may develop due to corrosion on the tank.
Engine power to the drive wheels may be unexpectedly lost, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, this failure may cause the vehicle to roll away if the parking brake is not applied despite the transmission being placed in 'Park'.
A gasoline leak could develop.
Vehicles with a 2.0L engine are being recalled because a fuel line may crack resulting in a fuel odor or leak.
There's a computer called the BCM (body control module) that helps to manage all of the other computers and electronics in your vehicle. Ford has found that some of these BCMs can overheat and potentially cause a fire.
