When equipped with the 6F55 or 6F50 gearboxes, the 2011 Edge can present some pretty strange problems. Intermittently, the transmission may begin to slip, end up in “neutral,” or shift into 5th gear instead of 1st when accelerating from a standstill.
Additionally, the cruise control may stop working as intended. As for the rearview camera, transmission issues can cause this unit to turn on unexpectedly when in “Drive.”
Interestingly, all of these issues point to a faulty digital transmission range sensor. When the sensor’s electrical circuit experiences high resistance, one of these problems can occur. Sometimes more than one occurs at the same time.
Technicians can resolve this issue by checking the sensor resistance using the manufacturer’s diagnostic procedure. Then, if the test reveals high resistance, they can replace the sensor with a new one to fix the problem completely.
