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.

Driver door ajar warning continually comes on at random times, or sometimes not at all. After awhile it was coming on all time and the dinging bell was driving me crazy. Had it fixed at the dealer, at my expense of course.

I recently purchased a 2012 Ford Edge. In Nov. 2013 a warning started showing on the dash every time I close the door (either driver side doors or passenger side doors) that says door ajar. No matter how many times I close the door it still says it. If I ignore it and drive down the road another warning pops up that says shift into park. When these warnings are on the interior lights stay on as well. Which could leave to a dead battery. These warnings going off every few minutes is very aggravating and for me a little scary as well especially when U R driving down the road and it says warning shift into park.... is there any kind of recall for this problem or anything that can be done to fix this? I thought it would stop but after having the vehicle for 9 months it is still doing it. I have my grandbabies in the vehicle with me alot and to me whenever there is any kind of warning showing up that is a problem and could lead to something serious and should be taken care of by Ford.

The alert for 'driver door ajar' comes on and will not turn off, regardless of how many times and/or how hard/soft the door is closed. This causes the interior lights to stay on after the car is turned off. I am now driving around, ignoring the alert, which is dangerous because I could potentially be driving with a door that is not latched properly, which could result in a serious injury. Thank god it is not the door that my son uses. I am hearing from every Ford owner I've spoken to and all over the internet that this seems to be a problem in the majority of Ford, so I think someone needs to look into a recall on this. Thank you.

problem #2

Edge 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
The door sensor says the door is open and every time the vehicle stops or slows down, there is a beep and the sensor on the dash says to put the car into park.the door is not open yet the car says it is. It is dangerous because if the door really doesn't close we wouldn't really know. There is also an annoying beep that is constantly going on to alert us to the fact that the door is ajar, but it really isn't. it can be very distracting. After the car is off the indoor lights stay on because the car thinks the door is still open. This needs to be looked into and I believe should be recalled. I spoke with another owner and they have had the same problem!

Having a problem with the drivers side door. The door is completely shut but the door ajar light comes on. Have to slam the door several times and even then the door ajar warning comes on. I think this is a safety issue that should be looked into. Possible latch replacement.
