2012 Ford Edge shuts off
Why does my 2012 Edge shut off on
occasion..driving and then stopping at a
light it dies on me..I'm in the drive mode
have to put it in park to restart..This is a
used car with @50,000 miles,owned it
since July 2017.
Is the CEL on? Have you done a tuneup or filter change since you bought the car?
What is the CEL?..I had an oil change recently but nothing else.
Check engine light.
Sorry..the check engine light doesn't come on..car acts normal when starting and driving..it just shuts off twice going downhill at a stop and once at a parking lot where I stopped to let cars in front of me.
Check the battery cable connections. You are looking for corrosion or something loose. If you see green corrosion on the battery cable ends they need to be cleaned and reconnected. Certainly you may have some other issue, but this is the first place to start looking. Always start with the basics and work up from there.
Also check to see if all relays and fuses are properly seated in the under hood fuse box.
