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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

As I was driving on multiple occasions, the driver door ajar light along with the dome lights come on. Also when I first get in many times the door ajar light comes on and the dome light stay on. I have also had my battery drain where when I got out of the vehicle the dome lights stay on as if the driver door isn't shut.

Door ajar light comes on, does not engage child safety locks. Takes repeated times closing the driver door for the light to go off. Vehicle was taken in once while under warranty, part was replaced. Still have the same problem as many others do with this vehicle.

Just after the manufacturers warranty expired at 36,000 miles the "driver door ajar" notification came on and will not go out. This is an extremely common problem and well known to Ford. Safety concerns are that the lighting will not go out and driving at night is severely hampered and the doors cannot be locked while the vehicle is in motion. The no-lock issue is a major problem while having children in the, granddaughter.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. The contact stated that when the front driver side door was closed, the door ajar warning light had illuminated indicating that the door was unsecured. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the door latch was faulty. The door latch was replaced but the failure recurred. The contact indicated that the front driver side door latch was replaced multiple times but the failure persisted. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 40,000.

Door ajar lights come on when door is properly closed causing a draw on the battery. Needs new door latch assembly from Ford, not covered under warranty should be a recall.

After closing door, the dome lights and door ajar indicator on instrument cluster would illuminate. I would have to slam the door several times to get the dome light and door ajar light indicator light to extinguish. The problem is worse in colder weather.

Door ajar light stays on with door shut. Dome light stays on so you are blinded at night. Cant lock doors so it is unsafe. Started doing it at 19000 miles. Ford would not fix it. Looks like thousands of people have the same problem.

Driver side door ajar warning stays on. Online research shows this is a very common problem, and should absolutely lead to a manufacturer recall.

The door sensor erroneously indicates door ajar. This prevents the door locks from actuating and allows children to accidentally open door when moving. Also the dome lights stay on at hours of darkness, impeding visibility.

Driver's rear door is giving the "rear door ajar" alert. The door is closed yet the alert stays on. It will cause the interior lights and the rear view mirror lights to stay on when the vehicle is turned off. I have been able to get it to go off by slamming the door, but this is getting to be a problem as well as it doesn't always go off and I have to turn the Edge back on then click "ok" on the alert that shows on the dash.

"driver door ajar" light will not go out when door is tightly closed. This keeps doors from auto-locking while ignition is on. Happened first time in June 2012, at 41K miles,4 mos after I bought certified used car. Door latch was replaced by dealer under warranty. It has been happening again now at 85K miles, August 2014. Also dome lights will not go out. Battery ran down last nite, could not start car this morning even tho dome lights went out at some point. I was in North ga mtns where there is no cell reception. Fortunately there was still one car at the site who could jump the battery or I would have been stranded there. I am a retired 69 yr old woman; it is not safe for me to drive without doors locked or for the battery to die when there is no reason for that to happen. There are many many reports of this problem on Ford Edge internet sites. Why hasn't there been a recall by Ford" are they waiting for someone to get hurt/killed" when I go to the dealership tomorrow, I anticipate a $400 repair estimate. I hope there is a better result than that.

The door ajar light remains on all the time, elluding to the driver's door being open, when it is not. Will not allow me to lock my doors when driving, making it unsafe and wearing down my battery.

problem #22

Jul 112014

Edge 6-cyl

  • 39,917 miles
At the above mileage the driver door sensor started to act up, it would not let me open the door by touching the handle so had to use the key fob to open it. Then when I closed the door it side the door was open so I opened it and shut it again, still the light didn't go out. This was a intermittent problem but has since never closed with the light going out. Told by my dealer that the sensor might need to be cleaned and it would cost me $190.
