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 sensor, latch issues. Known problem with Ford vehicles. Door ajar stays on which drains the battery hence the dome lights stay on. My Ford Edge will not lock, causing very dangerous circumstances when driving or stopped at a light in an area that is unsafe. Will not lock while parked, in drive (on highway or road) or with the ignition turned off. I was over my warranty by 1,000 miles and Ford customer service refused to help me, told me to take it in and pay for the work and service call and submit a claim.

The driver side door ajar sensor is faulty and keeps the door ajar warning on the dash, it also keeps the dome lights on in the car which can obstruct sight during night time driving, it also runs the battery down causing us to continuously start the car or let the battery completely die, it also keeps the doors from locking which could result in my car being broken into. This warning stays on almost always whether the car is stationary or being driven.

It's my 2011 Ford Edge sel. The driver ajar light stays on all the time no matter how hard I slam the door. This situation is unsafe because while driving it leaves all the doors unsecured. This is not right, anyone could come at the lights or stop signs and open up the vehicle. Also it not safe for the kids. This is a big security issue that needs to be looked into.

The driver door ajar switch will not sense the door is shut when the vehicle is stationary. The light will not go out after repeated shutting. When backing out of my garage, I cannot see when it is dark because the interior lights blind the driver. I am fearful I will hit someone while backing up. When driving forward, the lights go out around 15 mph. The door ajar switch is on every time the door is shut.

The sensor in the drivers side door has malfunctioned and the "driver door ajar" message is on all the time. This also prevents the doors from locking. Ford knew of this issue while my vehicle was under warranty and did not replace the sensor. After minimal research I have found this is a known issue with 2011/2012 Ford Edges but no recall has been issued. This initially started in 2014 but the Ford service department "scraped the plates" which worked for about 9 months, until my vehicle was outside of the 36000 mile warranty.

In February of 2015 my Ford Edge started to have issues with the driver door ajar even when the door was definitely closed which causes the vehicle to not be able to lock and stay locked, as well as for dome light staying on. I had the door shocked by Ford and it worked for less than a year, once again the driver door ajar is happening and I'm unable to keep my door locked while in the vehicle and driving and my dome light will consistently stay on.

Takata recall. The driver door ajar light stays on at all times. Will not go off no matter how many times you shut the door, the dome light stays on, runds the battery dead. I have tried every thing including wd 40. I believe it is the sensor but I am not a mechanic so.... I have googled this issue and it seems that everyone that owns a Ford Edge has this issue. I can not believe there is not a recall on this driver door has at times not latched completely. I believe this is a safety issue as I am driving on the freeway and have small children. Ford needs to get their act together and recall this issue for every one that owns a Ford Edge. I have bought Ford for years. This will be my last. This issue is everytime you enter the vehicle. Stationary, driving, freeway, highway, turning. This has been going on for months now. Has been a continuing problem for several months.

The driver side door latch will not latch properly causing the door ajar light to stay on. The door shuts and locks but the door ajar light stays on. When the vehicle is in motion the car will not lock all the doors because it is sensing that the front door is not shut. The interior lights stay on causing it hard to see at night while driving.

The door ajar alarm on the passenger door will not turn off even though the door is shut. This causes the door lock not to engage and the inside lights to stay on even while driving. I don't have a way to lock my doors, even manually.

Switch on shifter that tells the computer whether the car is in park or running malfunctioned. Component requires replacement of the entire shifter and has the ability to cause the vehicle not to start since it never registers that it is in part when stopped. Backup camera linkage failure rendering the back camera inoperative. The vehicle was stationary but problem with shifter switch reporting the car not in park could result in the car not cutting off or stopping when running. To fix these malfunctions and failures cost over $900 dollars. These are engineering defects not owner related.

Driver door ajar light stays on! had it to the dealership to be cleaned. Cost $200, less than 6 months later same problem. Safety issues because of this; dome lights stay on until a certain speed is reached, doors do not stay locked while in motion. Many of these SUVS have this problem. Very much a safety issue. Ford needs to step up and be responsible for addressing this safety concern!

Door ajar alert comes on while driving (car in motion) - doors unlock, overhead lights turn on. I stop, open/shut door firmly continue driving and receive the same message later in the drive. I have on several recent occasions received this alert while stationary. This is occurring off and on but now has become more common. The door is shut but the alert comes on at a variety of intervals and when in motion the doors unlock and the lights overhead come in which can be dangerous in and distracting. Most recent occurrence 12/3/15

Vehicle losses all throttle control vehicle does not shut off but the wrench light comes on the dash and has no throttle response. I have to turn vehicle off then restart to reset the computer. Every thing works great for a couple days then it does it again. I have had this happen in the middle of a intersection, on I 95, I 64, I 264, coming close to being hit on passenger side in a intersection with my grand baby in the vehicle. I have had the vehicle in the dealership here in Norfolk Virginia. They charge me $125 and said they could not duplicate the problem. The dealer also stated they think it might be a throttle body. I told them to put one on it and they told me that they don't just replace parts. I picked it up from the dealership and 2 days later it did this again. You could be doing 60, 65. Or 25 when it decides to lose throttle control. In the middle of a intersection turning or going 60 mph on the interstate it don't matter. I feel this is a safety concern and needs to be addressed. You can read about people with the same problem on the internet.

The driver door ajar light keeps coming on causing the interior light to stay on and car not to lock. Weather you are parking or trying to drive away, you have to open and close the door a bunch of times for it to acknowledge the door is shut.
