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 contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the door ajar warning indicator illuminated when all the doors were closed. The interior lighting illuminated and caused the vehicle's battery to lose power. The failure occurred on multiple occasions. The dealer stated that the electronic sensor on the door latch needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired and the manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000.

I was driving down a busy city street with my daughter when my car started to lose power and proceeded to stall in the middle of the road. A warning light (the wrench) popped up while this happened. I was luckily in the right hand lane and was able to steer the vehicle off of the road into a private drive. The vehicle then completely lost power. I was able to start the vehicle and tried to drive down the private road when the vehicle again started to lose power and stall. I then called aaa and had a tow truck pick up my vehicle and tow it to a local Ford dealership. I was told the next day by the dealership that is was a faulty throttle body and that the part just happened to not be covered under my extended warranty. Why is a part that can cause a car to stall out while driving not covered under an extended warranty that the Ford dealerships are selling to their customers" furthermore, after seeing so many posts about this particular part on this website as well as numerous others why is there not a recall on these faulty throttle bodies" this a lot like what Chevy did with their ignition switches (which we happen to own a cobalt and are going through that mess right now) allowing faulty parts to be placed into these vehicles which can cause the potential for serious accidents. I just thank god that we were not on a major highway in the middle of rush hour traffic. Something needs to be done about these parts and Ford needs to look into the "extended warranties" that they are allowing their dealerships to sell. I am furious with my dealership right now and have a call into the East coast regional office regarding this situation.

As I was driving out of my neighborhood, I pressed the accelerator, felt a jerk, and then no response from the accelerator. The car was just in idle, with nothing I could do. The "wrench" light (check engine) came on. Luckily, I could easily pull over, since I had no control over my speed, except for braking. I shut the vehicle off, and turned it back on, and it seemed to be fine. 5 minutes later, driving on a four lane road, the accelerator went unresponsive again. I was able to pull onto a side street with my existing momentum (there was no shoulder or space on the main road). I contacted my dealership and made an appointment for the next day. The next morning, the same thing occurred while driving my daughter to school (I was able to pull off the road), and again, about 50 feet from the Ford dealership. After evaluation, they said that the throttle body needed to be replaced. The part would take 2-3 days to order. They did not offer me a rental to use instead of my unsafe vehicle, but after I pushed, I was able to obtain a rental vehicle. I was not about to spend 5 days driving a vehicle I could not trust to be responsive when I needed it. Numerous other Ford vehicles have had issues with the electronic throttle body, resulting in an extension of the warranty for this part. After doing more research, I believe Ford needs to add the Edge to this list:

  • 75,000 miles
Door ajar indication on dash for both the driver side front and rear doors began to be intermittent even after the doors are shut tight with multiple closures. Car lights would stay on and car battery would be discharge (would not start and electrical system failures. I had to removed the interior lights front over the dash, rear ceiling lights and trunk lights to prevent the battery from discharging. Battery still be discharged but less fast. Car now begins beeping horn when the battery gets low. Car will not lock unless the key fob is a significant distance from the vehicle. Car has keyless entry and will not lock under any circumstance. Estimated repair will be over $400 and this is not guaranteed to fix the problem will not re-occur since Ford has not fixed the design of the door lock assembly.

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.

Door ajar warning light stayed lit at times, closing the door a little harder stopped working. Now the warning is constant and my doors will not lock while driving. All interior lights stayed on until it drained the battery. With new battery the only way the lights eventually shut off is if the car is locked, but the lights do stay on for extended periods of time before shutting off. Dealer claims the battery saver kicks in and shut the lights off "eventually" this is not the case if you leave the vehicle unlocked over night.

When the driver side door is shut, the drive side door warning light stays on. It will not go out until the vehicle is turned off. Once the vehicle is turned off, the interior lights stay on for several minutes. We have to check the vehicle periodically to be sure they turn off. When vehicle is parked outside and no one is near the vehicle, the alarm will go off intermittently. This happens during the day and at night. It seems to have started after the driver side door warning light started staying on. Our vehicle is out of warranty. When I called my local Ford dealer, they stated they see the problem with the driver side door warning light a lot but there is no recall on it. The repair can be as much as $500.

Door ajar sensor does not work properly on the driver's side front door. The sensor says the door is ajar, but it is not, and will not go off even after opening and closing the door several times. The interior lights stay on, which is a hazard when driving at night.

Door ajar switch was replaced by dealer at one year of age as door ajar alarm caused doors to unlock and interior dome lights to come on- it is difficult to see at night with interior lights on. New switch lasted two years(original switch was replaced at one year). Now in 2014 the switch is defective again!. safety concern on night driving with interior lights on (there is no way to turn them off other than removing the bulbs!) and security concerns as when door ajar comes on the doors automatically unlock! Ford engineers need to drive in detroit at night and say this is not a safety issue! or feds need to drive in DC at night and say this is not an auto safety issue!cops tell me to turn off interior lights at night driving!

I loved everything about my 2011 Ford Edge limited AWD, I've had it less then two months. Then one morning as I was commuting to work I lost power to my Edge. The weather was clear approx. 68 degrees, a beautiful Friday morning I was driving I felt a jolt like a kick in the transmission that was followed by a flash of the tool symbol & "AWD off? on my front instrument panel. I lost acceleration power. I had nowhere to pull off on the side of the road and had just came out of a sharp curve. All I could do was put the Edge in park. Turn off, then turn back on, it started right up luckily. The next day my husband took the Edge to a Ford dealership. The service dept. Hooked up the Edge and found no problems/errors/codes. Although they said it is probably the throttle body, since they have had several Ford Edges come in with the same problem. I have googled ?losing power while driving my 2011 Ford Edge? and didn?T relies that this is the #1 problem with Ford Edges, you would think that Ford would do something about this. After reading all the comments I saw information on the ?throttle body" being replaced. Several people posted their Edge had a code P2111 or P2112 (pertaining to the throttle body). I called Ford and they told me this would not be covered under warranty. Help! I have a small family now I'm scared to drive!

Door ajar lights constantly on saying doors are open. Lights stay on because it thinks doors are open. Cannot lock from keyless entry pad. This happened about a year ago not sure of date that's why I didn't list. It is drivers door again and rear passenger door. Two at a time! rear door is hardly used. Very disgusting and costly repairs again.

At first, about a week or so ago, door lock sensor indicated right front door not closed. Warning appeared on dash. Automatic locking at 10 mph ok happened for a while, but within past few days, auto lock does not happen. In fact, if door locked manually after starting, all doors automatically unlock within seconds--whether vehicle parked or in motion (with ignition on). In short, locking doors is not possible and all doors are unlocked while driving. Locking doors is only possible when vehicle is parked and motor is off.

Driver door latch reports door ajar when door is closed. This prevents doors from being locked while moving. This causes dome lights to stay on after parked and inability to use touch lock features.
