I had something weird happen to me this morning while backing out of my driveway.


I always park, nose in, into my driveway.

My driveway has a slight downward incline from the sidewalk.

I started my Edge and released the parking brake.

I put the selector into reverse and started backing out of my driveway.

As a car came down the street, the rear sensors picked it up and the interior alarm started to beep for oncoming traffic.

The Edge ST immediately dropped out of reverse and started rolling down my driveway.

I stepped onto the brake and looked at my instrument panel.

There was this alarm that said "The selected gear will continue in a lower speed." and the R light on the selector was flashing.

I could no longer back up. I switched the gear selector to D, back to P and then to R.

I could back up a few inches and the transmission would disengage Reverse and the message would come up again.


I had to turn off the ignition and shut down the Edge ST and restart it in order to back out of my driveway.


Is there any way to report things like this to FORD ???

It sounds like a software glitch.

You should take it to a dealer. They should be able to hook it up and pull the diagnostic codes from it and see what caused it.

I gave my dealer a copy of my post and they said when I bring it in for service, they will check for history codes.
