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.

  • 40,000 miles


I was on my way to work on 9/2/16 making a left hand turn when I loss acceleration. The car was still running but I had no gas pedal. I was able to limp to the side of the road, thank god I did not get rear ended. The panel showed a wrench. I was towed to a shop and they cleaned the throttle body and said I should be good to go. Well yesterday got up to go to the grocery store and the same thing happened, no acceleration. It took me 20 mins to get around the block and back into my garage. My car only has appx. 40,000 miles and I feel it is unsafe to drive. Upon researching this problem I am not the only one having this problem. As you can see hear I feel like Ford's is waiting for someone to get hurt or worse to address this issue. Any help you may offer would be appreciated.

Door latch and door ajar light issues. When the door is closed, the door ajar warning light remains on. This causes several safety issues. It will not allow for the door to lock. The dome lights remain on whether the vehicle is parked or driving. The domes lights remaining on will also drain the car battery. It has been repaired by the dealer two times prior, but the repair doesn't last long. This is a major issue for the vehicle.

Two door ajar lights on our 2011 Edge remain on at all times. Bea aide of this I am forced to drive at night with the interior lights on. This is unsafe and very distracting for us and other drivers. One of these doors is my daughters which we are very uneasy about. We are aware how big this problem is and people are desperate for help!!! I wrote to Ford but they said they can't help because there are no recalls and they can't find any record of our car being at a Ford dealer so I just sent them the invoice. I cannot believe there are so many vehicles with the same problem and Ford won't do anything about it.

Drivers side door latch not working - causing warning light and not enabling safety/security systems to engage when driving vehicle. Vehicle is stationary, happens when getting in and out of car. Also, dome lights remain on after car is parked causing battery to die.

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 warning light comes on because of a faulty sensor. Only comes on when vehicle is first started and makes the automatic locks useless. Interior light stays on, doors will not lock automatically, or can they be locked remotely. Seems to be a very common issue with many Ford products.

Car wil gradually slow down leading to a complete stop. Power to the engine seems to decrease and speed slows. Happened 4 times over several weeks. It would happen then an hour later car would be completely fine and drive ok for a few days and then happen again. Happened when the car was driving at 30-50 mph on normal city streets (not highway) we took it to the dealer, where they identified the throttle body as the cause of the issue. Our VIN is not eligible for the replacement program though; which we do not understand - meets the year/make/model and characteristics of issue. Ever since we purchased the car we have also had lingering electrical issues - separate of the throttle body, that no one has been able to identify -- drive door light says open and it's not, taillights randomly flash when car is off and no one is in car, etc. We are thinking this one was just a dud. We also own another Ford Edge 2014 model - no issues. Car is currently being repaired for the throttle body issue. We can provide receipts / info once we pick it up. Called Ford and they said that vehicles identified for the recall were based on date of manufacture and location - they must've missed us.

Takata recall: Driver door ajar warning light comes on when trying to lock my vehicle by remote or manually after parking. Does not matter if I am entering or exiting the vehicle. This warning light is on while I am driving, and it turns on when starting engine. It will happen consistently at various times such as, there are times that the interior lights will come on while the vehicle is parked for at least an hour and the driver door is locked, once I am finally able to lock it. Whenever the interior lights comes on for no apparent reason (other times the interior lights would turn on and off again after a minute), and I would have to work on getting my door ajar light off again. Very, very annoying, and I had to replace my battery due to this issue. I bought this vehicle used September 2015, and it all started a week after purchasing it. I love my car, but I hate to drive it because of this issue. Please issue a recall, I should not have to pay for a faulty issue that I did not cause. This has been happening to me every single day, every time I use my vehicle. I took it to the service department and was told that there is no recalls. This has become worse, and I am starting to distrust any Ford vehicles. Something really has to be done about this!

The following three bullet points all happen in conjunction when I close the driver side door. Happens while driving and the interior light stay in even when the vehicle is parked after exiting the vehicle. Driver side door ajar light stays on when the door is closed. Interior lights stay on in the vehicle while starting to drive and stay on upon exiting the vehicle. * I am unable to lock the doors while the vehicle is in motion I had the door latch replaced once a few years ago for the same issue.... this is a huge safety issue. When driving at night, the interior lights stay on for a while after starting to drive. And it is a huge safety hazard that the doors will not lock while driving especially with kids in the vehicle.

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.

My front driver side door ajar warning light stays illuminated whether the door is closed hard or soft, and completely closed. Once I reach speeds of 10mph while driving, the automatic locking feature does not work. If I push the lock button while driving, the doors automatically unlock. The warning light is constantly illuminated and my interior lights stay on for several minutes after my car is turned off even though the door is closed which is depleting my battery. This is a safety concern because I have 2 young kids behind these doors I cannot lock.

The drive side door keeps saying ajar no matter how many times you close it. This causes a variety of issue because it is a sensor problem. The car will ding thinking that keys are not in the ignition and at times have caused the door not close. This also cause the interior lights to stay on when all doors are closed. This happens both when the vehicle is in motion and in park.

Vehicle keeps saying door ajar. Door seems to be shut but constantly says that it is still open. This keeps my lights on and I am scared the door is really messed up and my children may fall out of the door or my passengers. Its starting to pop up evem when I have not used the door in days. Then I have to open and close the door over and over again until it tell the that it is finally shut. The other night for example I was outside for 25 minutes trying to get the door to finally say it was shut. Please recall this issue.
