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 door ajar sensor will not allow the door to be locked while in motion. Additionally, it will force the interior light to remain illuminated after removing the key which then drains the battery requiring constant roadside assistance.

Door ajar warning. Doors do not lock automatically nor will they lock with lock control on door or when in motion. Only possible way to lock doors is the remote on the key when car is stopped.

Just after the manufacturers warranty expired at 36,000 miles the "driver door ajar" notification came on and will not go out. This is an extremely common problem and well known to Ford. Safety concerns are that the lighting will not go out and driving at night is severely hampered and the doors cannot be locked while the vehicle is in motion. The no-lock issue is a major problem while having children in the car...ie, granddaughter.

Our Ford Edge gives us the door ajar notification upon putting the car in drive and at random times when driving. The doors are all closed when this happens. The overhead lights come on and will not turn off as long as the door ajar warning is on. Sometimes, the problem can be corrected by slamming the driver door a few times. Other times their seems to be no remedy. Other than being extremely annoying, we believe this to be a serious safety issue. The overhead lights make it difficult to see out of our vehicle at night, and if there ever really was a door ajar, we wouldn't know.

  • 76,000 miles
Door ajar warning light comes on every time we get into the vehicle and never goes off no matter how many times we close the door. Doors do not lock as car begins to move. Dome lights stay on for extended period when we start driving and after we have parked the car at end of trip. Back up camera doesn't function some of the time, and it never functions completely as it should. Car horn goes off at random times while car is parked with no one near it. It is a random sounding honking, not the consistent honk it makes when the panic button is pushed. Radio sometimes will not turn on, and sometimes when radio is on while driving, it won't turn off, even after car is turned off, key is taken out, we get out of car and lock it. Syncing system doesn't work right. Phone calls disconnect randomly. Battery warning light comes on sometimes when we turn car on; and dash display is delayed or doesn't come on. We have not had the car stall or start a fire as yet, but are afraid that may come next, as we have ready the many complaints about the 2011 Ford Edge problems and have found so many people have documented these exact complaints we have listed, and others have had the very dangerous stalling or burning problem. How we hope these problems will be investigated and Ford will be forced to fix these dangerous problems before someone is injured or killed because of them. How can Ford not have addressed it yet?!

I get a door ajar warning when the door is actually closed; the lights won't go off, nor the doors lock. I feel very unsafe with the doors not being able to lock. Plus it doesn't help the battery life much either.

While driven I had a message on my dash board that my driver side door was open. All the interior lights comes on. I checked and all doors were closed and secure. This malfuntion still up today and happen almost everyday during day an night time. During night is a safety issue becsuse you can not see clearly outside.

Edge

  • 34,000 miles
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.

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.

"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).
