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.

Door ajar light remains on constantly. Dome light stays on after car is off, draining the battery. Unable to lock doors while car is running. Dome light remains on until speed of 15 mph is reached, making it very difficult to see at night.

Door sensor: Door sensor light stays on becasuse either door latch or door sensor has been compromised. When the door sensor is 'on' or 'lit' system does not enable auto lock when speeds are over 10 mph. Overhead lights stay on at low speeds.

Drives door ajar sensor does not always work leaving interior lights on while vehicle is moving. This creates a safety hazard as you cannot see outside at night due to the glare from the interior lights staying on as a result of the door ajar sensor not working properly

Driver door is latched but dome light remains on. Door ajar warning light stays on. Will not shut off, have to shut door multiple times until door ajar light and dome lights turn off. Turns on randomly even while in driving gear. Light will even stay on when vehicle is off. Which if not caught might drain the battery. This has happened multiple times in a day. To every day. Even at night time which caused it hard to drive.

Door ajar light on, all doors are closed and the dome light stays on also. Visibility is hindered because of the dome light. Had the problem repaired a few years back and now the same problem has reoccurred. Faulty door latch was diagnosed the last time.

The door ajar warning lights stays on. This results in the dome light staying on while driving for a short period of time or after the car is off. Drained the battery once. Also, the door can not be locked. On a much more serious note, the dome light suddenly come on while I'm driving on the highway. This creates a very dangerous situation because I'm unable to see cars around me very well. I went to the Ford dealership in Feb, 2015 and fixed it once. However, this happens again recently. I really think Ford should address this issue!

I bought this car 2015 in the late winter. From the time I bought it the drivers door sensor would say its ajar. According to the dealer it would be about $1000 to fix. Tonight my auto door unlock doesn't work and neither does the key unlock the door. I'm stranded 30 miles from home. This is totally unacceptable. I will be letting anyone who asks to be extremely cautious about any Ford products.

Left rear door ajar light stays on. This results in the dome light staying illuminated. When parked this drains your battery and can leave you stranded. When driving at night the dome light greatly hinders your vision. I cannot verify if the door is fully latching when this happens. This is a safety concern adn needs to be a recall!

The 2 front door switches work sometimes. When parked the car thinks the doors are open and keeps the lights on. Sometimes for no reason the interior lights turn on and it drains the battery. Plus when the switches are not working the car does not think that it is locked and will beep twice when locking the car. When the switches have failed the doors will not lock when driving. I have been stranded because the lights will just come on when in a store and the battery will drain down to where the car will not start.

Passenger door ajar warning began to come on in October 2015, even when the passenger door was shut. This has resulted in the dome lights staying on when I begin to drive the car. This creates a safety issue at night, as it has a very negative impact on my vision until the dome lights go off. When I park the car, shut it off, and close all doors, the interior lights stay on because of this problem. This has resulted in a draining of my battery. I have had to charge the battery on many occasions (6 times in the past week). This issue is fully responsible for me having to purchase a new battery yesterday, which cost nearly $200 installed. The battery draining because of this matter could be a serious safety issue depending on where I was and who was around when I needed a jump. Finally, the passenger door ajar indicator malfunction prohibits me from locking my doors when I am driving. This is a significant safety issue. I have to travel three times a week into a city with high crime and I cannot lock my doors!! I have this same problem with the rear left door ajar indicator, although to a lesser extent. Ford is aware that there is a big problem here and I feel they should be forced to recall these vehicles in the interest of the safety of the owners. It seems to be they could be liable in the event of an accident due to dome lights blinding a driver at night or if there was theft or injury resulting from doors not being able to be locked when driving. The repair is quite expensive and vehicle owners should not have to pay for this. This issue has made me dislike driving and owning this vehicle for the past year. Please force Ford to do the right thing and make them recall these vehicles. Thank you in advance for your time and attention to this matter.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. While driving various speeds, the door ajar warning indicator illuminated with the door closed. In addition, after the vehicle was parked, the interior lighting failed to shut off and caused the battery to become inoperable. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the door sensor failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 50,000.
