Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 89,000 miles
The door latch sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning. Shows a door ajar warning on instrument cluster when door is actually closed tight. This warning indication prevent the doors from locking when driving. Big safety issue! it also causes interior light to stay on, and night time driving with that interior light glare is a safety issue. The dome lights have also stayed on when parked, causing the battery to go dead. This issue first was noticed 7/10/16 and continues intermittently each time the vehicle is driven.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 10,000 miles
Door ajar light stays on. This causes all dome lights to stay on, at night impairs vision when backing up. Makes driving very unsafe for first few yards, dome and map lights then go off. This is very unsafe and I have had one latch replaced. Now another is doing it. Ford dealer refused to fix it again, will cost about $300 each time. I feel Ford has know of this problem for some time and should fix all doors on models affected, or find solution to having lights stay on instead of just the warning light. I'm going to tape over my map lights until trade in, and will not buy another Ford product if they don't provide a safe solution at their cost....updated 07/30/15 updated 9/23/15
