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.

Lights stay on after parking inside and mirror lights. When driving interior lights stay on til a certain speed but doors do not lock and door ajar light stays on. The doors lock and the door light goes off spontaneously. Also brakes feel spongy and pedal feels like it goes to the floor.

Door ajar warning stays on even when the door is closed, preventing the dome light from going off and the door from locking while driving. Infrequently when I reopen the door and slam it shut the driver's door ajar and light will go off. If it does not and I have to back up it is very hard to see.

The door ajar light is staying on even after the door is shut. The interior and outside lights will stay on after shutting door, causing the vehicle to lose battery power if not detected early. If it is daylight this may be hard to see. It also does not let you engage the alarm, or even worse the alarm will go off for no apparent reason, also draining the battery if not detected early. I've only had this car a few months, but has been a problem since day one. I thought it was something that I was doing wrong until I did a little research and found out that I was not the only one having this problem.

Door ajar stays on even when door is closed, drivers door and passenger door. Dome lights stay on and doors do not lock when driving, also comes on in middle of night when the car is just setting and nobody around it. At night when you are trying to back up the light is affecting the sight since it glares in your eyes causing you to be unable to see what is around you. I put a date of today but this has been going on for a month.

Due to the latch mechanism on the doors, the computer thinks the doors are still open and the lights inside do not turn off which makes it very difficult to see and drive when the interior lights of the car are on. Computer keeps saying "door ajar". the dealership wants to charge $600 to replace the latch mechanism and they don't guarantee that the problem doesn't happen again

Had problems with door side sensor saying the door was open when it wasn't. now the passenger side door is doing the same thing. The doors will not lock while driving if the door sensor is saying the door is open. This is a safety hazard. Also, if the door open sensor is saying the door is open once you have gotten out of your vehicle and shut the door, the interior light will stay on and this drains your battery.

Passenger door ajar light will not go out although the door is shut completely. This causes the dome light to stay on when parked and causes other lights to begin blinking on and off, also has caused car alarm to go off for short periods of time and than stop by itself. The door ajar light is always on when operating the vehicle, and always when starting the car after engine off and parked.

The door ajar sensor keeps alerting - although door is not ajar - when car sits for any period of time this drains the battery. Have had to replace battery twice. Too expensive to have dealer repair.

The 'door ajar' signal stays on even when the door is securly shut. This also causes the dome/interior lights to stay on. This also makes it so you can't fully lock up the car. After a certain amount of time this also causes the alarm to go off while the car is unattended. All of these things combined drains the battery, leaving us stranded. With a newborn and a toddler this is a major concern.

The door ajar warning lights come on every single day for all doors. Constantly causing surmountable stress to driver. If unable to get the sensor to turn off, the doors do not lock while driving, which is terribly unsafe for driver and passengers. Also, because the dome light is connected to the door, the lights stay on draining battery. I've also had the door ajar sensor warning come on while driving down the road, when it was previously not on. There are also warnings "check fuel inlet", but there is nothing to check. The only problem is that the sensor has a problem! which then in turn makes the engine light illuminate because it thinks there is a leak in the fuel inlet, or perhaps thinks that the seal isn't closed because Ford decided the cap-less fuel inlet was a good idea. It's not!

Vehicle has begun to show driver door ajar at all times, even when slammed several times. This causes lights in cabin to remain on and drain battery when parked and even causes horn to begin to beep at all times during the day and night. Also causes doors to lock or unlock while driving or while parked and left unattended. Not secure for children to ride in car since locks are not reliable or to leave the car since you may return and vehicle has unlocked. This is very much a safety concern since it is impossible to back up or drive with the cabin lights on.

The false door ajar signal shows up when I start the car, and prevents to doors from locking. Dome light stays on, as well as lighting under both side mirrors which is causing battery drain. Sometimes you can clear the door ajar by opening it again and slamming it very hard. This is the second incident of this happening, and had it last fixed at the Ford dealership in June of 2013.
