Door ajar light for drivers side stays on continuously even when door is closed properly. Interior lights remain on until a certain speed is reached. When vehicle is not in use the interior lights turn on and off as if the door were being opened and closed. I have replaced the battery once and have yet to replace the door switch.

Edge

Our Ford Edge gives us the door ajar notification upon putting the car in drive and at random times when driving. The doors are all closed when this happens. The overhead lights come on and will not turn off as long as the door ajar warning is on. Sometimes, the problem can be corrected by slamming the driver door a few times. Other times their seems to be no remedy. Other than being extremely annoying, we believe this to be a serious safety issue. The overhead lights make it difficult to see out of our vehicle at night, and if there ever really was a door ajar, we wouldn't know.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the door ajar indicator remained illuminated after the doors were closed. As a result, the interior lighting remained illuminated and the automatic locks malfunctioned while driving. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but no diagnostic testing was performed. No repairs were made to the vehicle. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 55,299.

I started getting a message driver's door ajar even though the door was closed. This did not allow the car to lock properly (two beeps instead of one beep). Also, the interior light did not go out. This is now occurring when I get into the car and try to drive off. This doesn't happen every time, however is now happening more and more often. Sometimes you can lock and unlock the door lock several times and the message will go out and the interior light will go off. Sometimes the only way it will go out is by slamming the door. I have read several others that are having the same issue. It seems to me this should be something that should have a recall if so many customers with different Ford/Mercury vehicles are experiencing. I have an appointment to have the dealer look at my car tomorrow. I can't continue driving it with these hazards.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 31,500 miles
<> when closing the driver's door, I get a "door ajar" message, even though the door is fully shut. I can get the message to go off if I slam the door repeatedly, but sometimes it takes two or three slams to get it to go off. This can be a serious safety issue when I'm not able to get the message to go off. If it occurs at night, I have to drive with the interior lights in the car on. I'm also concerned about the driver's air bags being able to deploy in an accident, if the sensor thinks the door is open. This problem really warrants a recall to address this issue.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 76,000 miles
Door ajar warning light comes on every time we get into the vehicle and never goes off no matter how many times we close the door. Doors do not lock as car begins to move. Dome lights stay on for extended period when we start driving and after we have parked the car at end of trip. Back up camera doesn't function some of the time, and it never functions completely as it should. Car horn goes off at random times while car is parked with no one near it. It is a random sounding honking, not the consistent honk it makes when the panic button is pushed. Radio sometimes will not turn on, and sometimes when radio is on while driving, it won't turn off, even after car is turned off, key is taken out, we get out of car and lock it. Syncing system doesn't work right. Phone calls disconnect randomly. Battery warning light comes on sometimes when we turn car on; and dash display is delayed or doesn't come on. We have not had the car stall or start a fire as yet, but are afraid that may come next, as we have ready the many complaints about the 2011 Ford Edge problems and have found so many people have documented these exact complaints we have listed, and others have had the very dangerous stalling or burning problem. How we hope these problems will be investigated and Ford will be forced to fix these dangerous problems before someone is injured or killed because of them. How can Ford not have addressed it yet?!

The driver side door ajar light stays on.with the light on, the door is not locked when you are driving. This then becoming a safety concern. After much research I am finding out this as been an on going problem for quite some time, and Ford has done doing nothing to fix the problem.

Front driver side door senor is not recognizing that the door is closed. It takes numerous attempt in order for the door to be recognized by the electrical system that it is close. This is a huge inconvenience and draws a lot of unnecessary attention. In asking around, I know several other Ford Edge who have encountered this issue as well, I firmly believe this to be a defect.

While driving I had a message on my dash board that my driver side door was open. All the interior lights comes on and will not go off. I checked and all doors were closed and secure. This malfunction still up today and happens daily day an night time. During night is a safety issue because you can not see due to lights being on.

problem #198

Edge 6-cyl

  • 46,082 miles
I was driving vehicle up a slight grade at 30mph. Engine power suddenly dropped to an idle RPM. It felt like it was running on 1 cylinder and very rough. I was able to "creep" the car to the side of road. Pressing on the accelerator in neutral or drive had no effect. A "wrench" warning icon appeared on the indicator panel. Shutting off and restarting the car allowed us to drive home. This occurred two times within 2 miles. The car will be taken to the dealer today for repairs. This same scenario (less than 270 miles prior) occurred as my wife accelerated away from our home 3 weeks prior. The owners manual indicated it was an AWD issue. My car does not have that feature.the car was taken to the dealer who indicated it was a transmission problem covered by a service bulletin and reprogrammed the transmission computer. Prior to these engine incidents the car had acted odd when shifting, as though it popped in and out of gear. This is a safety concern and so far we have been lucky because it happened each time in low traffic conditions.
