Ford Motor Company is recalling 53 model year 2015-2016 Ford Edge vehicles manufactured February 9, 2015, to August 12, 2016.
During dealer servicing, the affected vehicles may be have been updated with incorrect Antilock Brake System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) software. This software can cause the ESC system to lose engine torque control and not provide any warning lamps to warn the driver if there was an ABS or ESC system malfunction. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems" and number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."
If the operator is not warned of an ABS or ESC malfunction and the ESC loses engine torque control, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ABS module, and update the service software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 28, 2016.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16C14.
