Visitor, 2008 Ford Edge, 26,000 mi
We have the same problem as well as no heat. I quit buying Fords' years ago. But my wife had to have an Edge. Took the car back to the dealer and guess what? Same old Ford plenty of excuses but not fixes.
Ford knows about this problem that started with the 2007 vehicles. (Edge, Mariner, Escape, Escape Hybrid, among others). See their problem report TSB 09-21-6. The real problem is that it is not a recall and it is a major nuisance and health hazard. If you turn your fans on all the way you are covered by a cloud of white dust. The repair is extremely labor intensive, to be done by an expert, and costly! I'm waitin for a class action lawsuit. (If you still have your warranty it is covered, I believe.)
