2017 Edge Engine Bay

Pull Out Tab To Release
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and perhaps also the revised 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 model years of the Ford Edge SUV in checking or changing a blown electrical fuse or a faulty relay in either the engine bay or the interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Ford and Lincoln vehicles such as the Escape, Expedition, EcoSport, Flex, Explorer, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Mustang, Taurus, Ranger, Transit Connect, F-150, Endura, C-Max, Kuga, Mondeo, MKZ, Navigator, Aviator, Nautilus and Continental may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The Ford Edge is equipped with Micro2 and Micro3 type fuses.

There should be a plastic fuse puller tool included in the engine bay fuse block. If the tool is missing, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the right (driver) side of the engine bay.

The engine bay fuse box is located behind the driver side headlight assembly, to the right of the engine air filter box and in front of the 12V automotive battery.

Make sure the ignition switch is in the "OFF" position before continuing to the next steps.


Pull Second Retaining Clip
Lift Off Fuse Box Cover
Cover Removed
There are two retaining clips on the left (passenger) side of the fuse box cover.

Gently pull the plastic tabs out towards the left side of the engine bay and away from the fuse box.

Once you have released both retaining clips, carefully lift up the left side of the fuse box cover.

Turn over the cover to view the fuse and relay location diagram.

Driver's Left Knee Area
There is also a fuse location diagram in your owner's manual.

The interior passenger compartment electrical panel is located under the driver side of the dashboard.

Look under the dashboard (close to the hood release lever and the OBDII or "OBD2" on board diagnostics port) and locate the small fuse block.

Pull Out Old Fuse
If you would like to add a hard wire 12V power source for an automotive accessory such as a cell phone charger, GPS navigation unit, turbocharger boost gauge, radar / laser detector, dash camera (dashcam) or an LED lighted Uber / Lyft sign, you can install an Add-A-Circuit Fuse Holder to the interior fuse block.

They are also known as "piggy-back" fuse holder or a "fuse-tap".

You can use a digital multimeter tool to check for a circuit that is either "switched" (turns on / off with the ignition) or "live" / "hot" (constantly has 12V power even with the ignition switched off) depending on your needs.

If the plastic fuse puller tool is missing from the main engine bay electrical panel, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers that have rubber insulated handles.

Old Fuse Removed
Micro2 Type Fuse
Inspect Old Fuse
Gently pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

The Ford Edge is equipped with both Micro2 (two blades) and Micro3 (3 blades) style fuses.

To check the condition of the old fuse, hold it up to a light bulb.

If the thin metal strip or "band" in the translucent plastic center of the old fuse appears to be burnt, broken or missing, the old fuse is most likely "blown" and should be replaced.

If the metal bar in the middle of the old fuse appears to be intact, the old fuse is probably still good.

Since new fuses are so inexpensive, you should still replace it as part of your electrical problem troubleshooting process.


Push Fuse Into Socket
Pull Out Other Fuse Type
Micro3 Fuse Type
Push a new fuse of the same amperage rating (e.g. 5A, 10A, 15A, 20 Amps, etc) straight into the socket.

Make sure the new fuse is fully seated in the socket.

Don't worry about the orientation of the new fuse.

The direction that the numbers face does not have to line up with the other fuses.

Fuses Replaced
Line Up Fuse Box Cover
If your Edge has a fuse puller tool, replace it.

The tool was missing on this 2017 Edge.

Line up the three plastic tabs on the right side of the fuse box cover with their corresponding slots.

Lower Right Side First
Push To Secure Clips
Cover Secured
Slide the tabs into their slots.

Lower the left side of the fuse box cover and push on it to secure the two retaining clips.

You should feel and/or hear the two clips "click" securely into place.

Check the electrical component you were having issues with such as the radio, power driver's seat, power window motor, interior lights, horn, headlights, tail lights, A/C system, gauges, LCD screen, wiper blades, etc.

If you still have the same problem, there may be a shorted wire some where or the component itself needs to be replaced.

If you suspect that a faulty relay is the source of your problem, the easiest way to troubleshoot it is to simply replace it with a new relay of the same amperage rating. Or you can check the old relay with a digital multimeter tool.

To replace a relay, use the needle nose pliers to carefully pull it straight out of its socket. Push a new relay of the same amperage straight into the socket.

Be sure to write down any fuses that were replaced in your vehicle's service records.
