Customer Question
2014 Ford Edge, 55,000...

2014 Ford Edge, 55,000 miles. Last fall (2016) began getting the "Shutting Down System To Save Battery" message and the ""Take key out of ignition or turn car on" message (Key is in my hand, car not running). Had to replace the battery last January (2017). Now getting the same messages (not every time I start or shut down the car). Had all modules checked out, no problems. Battery and alternator appear to be working roperly. What gives? I see this is a CHRONIC problem for Ford.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

As I said, battery is recently purchased and installed. No corrosion. Cables at the battery are tight.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Edge yourself? What have you tried so far?

Certified NON Ford mechanics have looked at it. Now you are aware this is a long standing problem of Fords?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thought I was chatting with the mechanic, sorry

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
