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.

The driver door is showing an alarm of not being closed when it is closed. The interior lights do not shut off for 2 minutes and this is a safety issue when driving a night and it is killing the battery off.

Tsb-14-0083 and 0011. Door ajar will not turn off. The issue is with the driver's door latch assembly. This should be a recall as it is affecting all 2011 and newer Ford cars with this latch system as documented here on multiple treads on fordedgeforum.com. Example thread www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/10869-door-ajar-warning-on-at-all-times/page-4.

The contact stated that while driving at approximately 30 mph, the door latch indicator fractured, the dome lights would not shut off, and the doors would not unlock. The failure recurred on multiple occasions. The vehicle was not repaired or diagnosed. The manufacturer was not notified. The VIN was invalid. The approximate failure mileage was 65,000.

For the third time the "driver door ajar" warning light is illuminated while the door is closed and presumed locked. The dealer made repairs the first two times and now is charging me again for this third occurrence of the same issue stating they previously only cleaned the part which is now determined to need replacement. My teenager often drives this vehicle and we do not know if the driver door is closed or locked because of the defect in the warning system. It is absurd that it is not covered under my extended warranty as the salesman told me it was at time of purchase.

2011 Ford Edge door ajar light and dome light stays on after shutting door. It ended up being the sensor in the front passenger door and front drivers door. The front drivers door sensor was replaced twice in 2013 and once in 2014. The passenger side door was replaced in 2014 and in January 2015. The door sensor issue started at 34,000 miles. We are currently at around 43,000 miles and the door sensors continue to be a major problem. Replacing the drivers side door sensor 3 times in 2 years and the passenger side door sensor in 2 years as well should not happen, especially only driving 9,000 miles in those 2 years. Something needs to be done about these door sensors that keep going out. Ford has said there is no problem, but there has to be after all these replacements.

The driver door says it is ajar but its actually shut. And the key fob does not work to unlock the doors when you touch the sensor on the door handle.

Door ajar light stays on, even when the door is shut. Will not allow automatic door locks to latch. This is a danger to children in the back seat. Also, wears out the life of the battery. Interior light stay on for 3 min after driving, this makes it a hazard to see when driving.

The door ajar warning appears continuously on the dashboard even when the door has been closed. This prevents the doors from being locked and causes the dome lights to be on while driving causing vision issues at night. The light also stays on when the car is off which results in draining the battery.

"passenger door ajar" warning light comes on intermittently along with interior dome light. Opening/closing door usually doesn't fix. Warning can come on even if door wasn't opened. Can occur when parked (first starting car) or driving. Can temporarily override issue by pressing ok button, but can/will happen again. Very annoying and is a hazard when driving (kinda startling/distracting) especially if it occurs at night (dome light impairs vision).

Coming out of an underground parking garage and the vehicle suddenly stopped and I received an orange wrench error message stating AWD off. The vehicle would not engage in a drivable gear. I had to drift to a spot where I could be out of the line of traffic, at which time I stopped the vehicle/brakedp; shifted into park, and turned off the ignition. Upon re-starting the vehicle, it appeared to resolve. Upon doing research, I recently took the vehicle to the Ford service dept and they reset the transmission computer as I had been experiencing slips or rough starts when driving/accelerating over the last 2-3 months. The incident described above occurred approximately 2.5 weeks after that service visit.

The door ajar sensor on the driver side works sometimes and doesn't work sometimes. I have to open and shut the door several times until it works. If I cannot get it work then it absolutely kills my battery. This is apparently happening alot on these vehicles.

The drivers side door is definitely closed. Car does not think so. Dash warning light is on. Dome lights on. When using the clicker to lock the doors the horn beeps a couple of times. Weird stuff. I do not know if this is going to cause safety problems or not. This Edge also has back brake problems. The back rotors and brakes have been changed twice already due to corrosion. Bad design. They get really hot and must be slightly in the braking position then until changed. Winter in Minnesota - salt and Ford's better idea. One more thing: When we change the temperature settings the computer things we want air conditioning. This causes the windows to completely fog over under certain conditions. I have had numerous talks with Ford motors about this safety problem. They do not get it and basically blow us off because of cost or lack of understanding. There are complaints filed.
