What are the DTC codes related to Ford Edge transmission problems?

P0766 – Failed Shift Solenoid D – This DTC can be stored when there is a problem with a shift solenoid or the valve body.
P2703 – Failed Friction Element D – This trouble code can be triggered by a failed friction element like a clutch disc.
P0720 – Failed Input Speed Sensor or Output Speed Sensor – This trouble code is caused by a bad speed sensor on the transmission.
P0730 – Incorrect Gear Ratio – This issue could be caused by a number of problems, including a fault in the transmission control module, dirty transmission fluid, or a bad transmission solenoid.
P0657 – Voltage Problem in the ‘A’ Circuit – This transmission problem is often caused by a short, or bad ground on the PCM or PCM wiring harness.
P0700 – Malfunction in the transmission control system – This DTC is often triggered when there is a problem with the TCM, a wiring harness, a solenoid, or the valve body.
P0715 – Input/Turbine Speed Sensor Malfunction – This code typically gets stored when the input sensor cannot read the engine RPM, which can prevent the transmission from appropriately shifting gears.
P0717 – Input/Turbine Speed Sensor No Signal – This trouble code is generated when the PCM does not get a signal from the input speed sensor, which will prevent the computer from being able to determine when the transmission needs to shift.
P0791 – Intermediate Shaft Speed Sensor ‘A’ Circuit – This error can occur when there is a problem with the intermediate shaft speed sensor, most likely due to a bad sensor, wiring problem, or a failed shift solenoid.
P0793 – Intermediate Shaft Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal – The computer will generate this DTC when it cannot communicate with the intermediate shaft speed sensor.

Can I drive with a transmission problem?

If your Ford Edge can still make it up and down the road, you might say “It’s fine, I’ll just drive it until I can get it fixed”. But that is not always a good idea, depending on the symptoms. You see, there are a lot of (very expensive) moving parts inside of a transmission, and if something isn’t right, continuing to drive with a transmission problem could damage something else.

How often does a Ford Edge transmission need to be replaced?

The overall lifespan of a Ford Edge transmission largely depends on how well it was maintained. Factory design flaws also factor into this equation, along with how/how hard you drive. But on average, we’ve seen the Ford Edge transmission last for between 130,000-180,000 miles. A high quality replacement transmission however, can last considerably longer if all of the factory design flaws have been addressed and the vehicle has been maintained.

How are Ford Edge transmission issues diagnosed?

It is fairly easy to guesstimate what the root cause of your Ford Edge transmission problems might be, but you won’t truly know unless you have the right tools and experience. A good mechanic or transmission repair center will be able to connect your truck to a computer and find out which diagnostic trouble codes (DTC’s) have been stored. Once they know what to look for, they can perform a visual inspection to verify the problem.

How is a Ford Edge transmission replaced?

In order to replace your Ford Edge transmission, the truck has to be lifted from the ground in order to gain access to all of the parts that will need to be unbolted. Then the transmission can be lowered to the ground (typically with a transmission jack), so the new transmission can be installed. Once it is in place, for the 6F, the vehicle PCM will have to be reprogrammed / reflashed to accept the new transmission using the latest solenoid strategy ID.

How to Solve Ford Edge Transmission Problems

Solution A: Buy a Used Ford Edge Transmission

The quickest way to fix your transmission problems is to simply buy a used transmission or used transmission. These can be found at most junk yards, and they often come with a 30-90 day warranty. However, there’s no way to determine the actual condition of the internal components, so you could be spending a bunch of money to have the exact same problems. Plus, that warranty only covers the transmission if it’s defective, not the labor costs that you’ll have to pay.

Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Ford Edge Transmission

Another option would be a rebuilt transmission or rebuilt transmission. A local repair shop will remove your transmission, then install a bunch of new parts during the rebuild. The problem here is, the skills and experience of each transmission rebuilder will vary widely from shop to shop, so you could have problems from something that wasn’t adjusted properly. And the 1-2 year warranty might only cover you at certain transmission repair shops, in a specific geographical area.

Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Ford Edge Transmission

Many owners depend on their vehicle to commute and get things done. Their gasoline engines are designed to go 100’s of thousands of miles, so it makes sense to invest in a remanufactured transmission.

Between 30 -50 mph after costing, when re engaging, a thump is felt in accelerator, no noise at any time. This does not happen on constant basses ??

Peter

Probably the same problems that most 2011-2016 Fiesta’s and 2012 -2016 Focus’s have, Court case settled in USA but not in Australia or Canada, the daughter had two transmissions in 1 week go, on its 3rd trans that we know of stay well away from Dual clutch and CVT transmissions and that’s from a Transmission repair shop Manager

Greg

Our 2015 Edge clunks and shifts hard sometimes. Is this a clutch or torque converter issue?Sounds like Ford need a to recall these transmissions!

Joe

I also have the same sound especially when I go into reverse to say parallel park. The car will make this tremendous knocking noise.

Rowland

My 2013 Ford Edge whins when I’m accelerating. I don’t know what this could be. Does anyone know the answer to this? My Ford Edge has over 183,000 miles. Does this mean that the transmission has to be replaced?

P2704 Transmission friction ELE E apply time/ performance
Repair voltage drop in primary electrical system, clear codes,
key on with engine off test- no codes were returned.
Key on with engine run test – input speed sensor and output speed sensor returned good data.

Transmission slips due to worn clothes.
Recommend replacement

please email me with idea on what it could be because I feel the shop really didn’t put effort into finding out what the problem could be. They were basing it off experience and the wrench indicator light. They said to know for sure they would charge another $300 to find out.
Thank you,

Kurt Morgan

Purchased a 2008 Ford Edge a month ago with 62,500 miles on it. Tried to get a Ford ESP Extended warranty , so CONSECO inspector noted a flare from 2nd to 3rd or 3rd to 4th, so warranty rejected until resolved. All services were performed per original Ford requirement as needed or before religiously at the Ford dealer it was purchased from. The dealer was NOT cooperative because I purchase warranty on lone. All they said was it would cost me a lot of money. Took to a local tranny shop and he tells me it needs a rebuild which is $3500 – $4500. Not believing it! I am going to a more reputable transmission company next week with a 5 star rating. What is you ideas and take from this? Thanks in advance.

Tim Orton

Hi Kurt did you ever find out what the problem was. I have the same issue but it’s not throwing any codes and the tranny shops can’t pin point anything so they are telling me to put in a remanufactured. Thanks for the help

My daughters 2008 Ford edge is pulling and the engine light came on saying it is the converter or the censors changed one of the censors tuned the car up. Had the converts done and the engine light came back I. Still saying it’s the converter but the car jerks a little bit when it’s changing gears so which one is it

Douglas Harvey

my 2016 ford edge has been leaking transmission fluid.
it has 60,700 km.
I have topped up the fluid today with a Ford recommended solution.
Can I drive for couple of days prior to seeing dealer.

Marcelo Thome

the transmission of my Ford Edge has been remanufactured, tested on the workbench and the entire hydraulic part is new. However, when it is installed in the vehicle it loses the first gear and the reverse. for that it is enough to leave and to walk few miles, it seems that there is to be with heating and presents / displays diverse codes of failures … but not directly of the transmission.
example:

P0110, P0016, P0317, P1117
