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.

When closing the door the door latch doesn't latch properly and the warning light the door is ajar light stays on keeping dome lights lit. Door can be opened and closed 5,6 times and still the same problem. Sometimes the door doesn't even latch, non of the doors lock, and at night its dangerous to drive with dome lights lit. I paid for the repair once shortly after the warranty expired and was told by the dealer when the problem started again there was nothing that they could do and I would need to pay to have it fixed. I so mad I'm ready to trade the car in on a Toyota. To make the issue worse is every car you've made since I bought this has had door latch recalls. My boyfriend just got a recall (15S16) for his 2013 Fusion and he has never had an issue with his doors. I'm just waiting for the door to come open again while I'm driving. [xxx] date entered is the last time it happened. It does this on a daily basis. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

At about 75,000 miles my door adjar light for my driver door would not turn off. It turns out the sensor of the door latch assembly is bad. This causes safety hazards because my interior lights will not turn off when the door is shut and it will not allow me to lock the doors from the interior when the car is in motion. I've spoken with Ford representatives and this is a known, common problem but they haven't done anything about the issue. I think a recall of the faulty product that causes safety hazards would be appropriate.

Driver door shows a "door ajar" warning when the door is actually fully closed. Warning remains when vechicle is stationary and in motion. Currently slamming the door very hard will prevent the message from coming on, but is become less effective.

Had problems with door side sensor saying the door was open when it wasn't. now the passenger side door is doing the same thing. The doors will not lock while driving if the door sensor is saying the door is open. This is a safety hazard. Also, if the door open sensor is saying the door is open once you have gotten out of your vehicle and shut the door, the interior light will stay on and this drains your battery.

Door ajar light started coming on for driver's side rear door. You could get out and slam the door and it would go out. This has been steadly getting worse. Now anytime you get in the car, you do not have to open the rear door and the door ajar light comes on and the inside dome lights come on. I can say "ok" to the notice and the message will disappear but the small car indicator will stay on on the dash. The real problem is the inside dome lights will not go out until the car picks up some speed. This is a real problem at night especially if you are trying to back out of a parking space and the lights are on inside the car. I am not sure of the exact date that this started, but it has been going on for several months. I just picked a date below.

Door ajar warning. There's a common issue with many Ford where there's an issue in the door latch assembly that triggers the door ajar warning light and leaves the dome lights on. This is a safety issue if one is trying to reclose the (already closed) door while the car is moving and the dome light remaining on affects night vision. This happens after car is started and remains all the time the car is turns on - in motion or not

The driver side front door latch isn't working properly, I will be driving down the road and all my interior lights will come on and a message will appear and it says my door is open, this is very unsafe because it has happened at night, it is very distracting to drive at night with all the interior lights and you have to wait until they go off, this issue has to be fix asap. I've read this is a common problem with the Ford Edge and many other models for makes.

We had the oil changed by Ford dealer here in winchester, tn and every since then, when I get in the car and close the drivers door closes, but a notice on the dash states " drivers door is ajar". no matter how many times I close the door, the message stays the same. Once in a while it will go away.
