The door ajar light comes on even though all doors or closed. The problem is that interior lights stay on and doors will not lock even when the car is off. This drains and kills the battery. Ford states no recalls. After researching on internet, this has been happening with Ford models for years with no fixes.

The drivers door ajar warning was activated on the instrument panel. The door was actually closed. The safety issue was the interior lights were on while driving, the doors could not be locked when driving and the battery was drained when the car was turned off for the night. There is a safety bulletin issued on the door latch and assembly. The dealer charged $468 to replace the door latch assembly. The documentation is the dealership paperwork given when I paid the bill.

Driver door interlock switch consistently fails to work. This causes the interior lights to remain on until the car begins to travel forward and reach a certain speed. At night it is impossible to see anything behind you when backing up with the lights on. It has already caused an accident when I backed into a parked car. This is a very dangerous safety hazard as any person walking behind you could be hit.

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.

Driver door light ajar comes on even if the door is closed. It keeps the interior lights on for long periods of time and I had to replace a battery already. Thought it was just a sensor.now I found out others are having the same problem...

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!
