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.

Driver door ajar alarm is activated even though door is closed. This won't allow the doors to lock automaticaly while the car is in motion. Not covered under warranty

problem #51

  • 29,454 miles
The driver's door sensor is malfunctioning. Causes a hazard as the interior dome lights remain on (a nasty condition at night), and the doors will not lock using the interior locking control switch (nor do they lock automatically when underway).

Driver door ajar warning light stays lit even though the door is closed. This creates safety problems at night since the interior lights stay on. This can be especially concerning for some that may be bothered by more light inside the vehicle and for those vehicles that have tinted windows. This problem first occurred with the vehicle about 29 months old and at about 39,700 miles. The door latch was replaced at that time and it is now happening again - less than 25 months later and in just under 27,000 miles.

My vehicle displayed the door ajar alarm after the door had been shut securely. This occurred intermittently for two days, and then began to occur every time I got in the vehicle. A couple days later it went back to being intermittent. I would not get the notification when I first got in the vehicle, but then the alarm would go off while I was driving.

problem #48

Jul 012015


  • 65,000 miles
Door ajar sensor stuck on "open" for driver's side front and rear doors. As a result, dome lights stay on causing difficulty seeing at night, and inability to lock doors while in motion. Also, drains battery and has stranded my wife multiple times. Repair is very costly and as I understand it, the replacement part is just as susceptible to the problem as the original equipment. Ford needs to be responsible for this inherent defect.

Driver door adjar notification won't go off even though all doors are closed. This prevents doors from locking while driving causing safety hazard. Also causes the interior lights stay on while driving causing safety hazard at night. Sometimes interior lights won't go off at all even after the car has been turned off for hours.

problem #38

Sep 102014


  • 40,000 miles
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.
