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.

Problem: Door ajar sensor my Ford Edge door ajar light comes on and will not turn off no matter how many times I attempt to shut the door. With this light on the doors will not lock and the interior lights do not turn off for a period of 10-15 minutes. My daughter and I drive in my Edge everyday, with the doors not locking I find that this can be a very dangerous hazard. Today we were driving thru the mall parking lot and a stranger approached my Edge as if he were going to attempt to open the passenger door. At the time the door ajar light was on and all doors were unlocked, as the vehicle will not allow you to lock the doors with this light on. Lord forbid he would have opened that passenger door and harmed my daughter. Does it take a tragedy to happen before the manufacturer decides to deem this problem a legitimate recall..... I have read a tremendous about of complaints regarding this problem, how can this be transformed into a recall issue" what does it take to get Ford or the safety board to resolve this?" signed: A caring parent

We went to get in the car, closed the door and the driver door ajar warning came on with the door closed. It does on occasion go off temporarily then comes back on. Was told by dealership that Ford has known about problem for about a year. If this is the case there should be a recall for the part.

Driver door ajar light came on when door was closed securely. Occurred intermittently at first, but then happened all the time. Repaired under warranty. Around may of 2013 (out of warranty by a few months) the same thing happened. Will cost $300-400 to fix. In the meantime, my doors will not remain locked while driving and the interior lights remain on for a long time before going off, using battery power. In researching this, it appears to have been a problem with Ford cars for a number of years. Having to replace this sensor twice in three years is unacceptable!

Drivers side door ajar light is on and does not go out even when the door is closed. This causes the doors not to lock causing a safety concern while operating the vehicle. When parked the interior lights remain lit which causes the battery to be drained and the car will not start. I had it fixed at the dealer under warranty just after 1 year of buying the vehicle new, then the 2nd time was 1 year after the replacement switch now not under warranty at this rate I will need to buy one drivers door switch every year at $400 a pop. I also had to replace the battery too. Really!
