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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #47

Edge 6-cyl

  • 68,000 miles


The door ajar warning indicates the door is open when the door is actually closed tight. If you slam the door hard, the warning clears sometimes but may come back on without the door being opened. This is a poor alarm system design. Ford should take responsibility for the design and issue a recall. The original latch was replaced under warranty at about 30K miles.

The indicator light for the driver's side door being ajar will not go off. The door is most definitely not open, yet the indicator does not register the door as being closed no matter what we do.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 44,000 miles
While driving at 45mph, vehicle lost power to the extent that I had to pull over on the shoulder. A mechanic wrench light appeared on the dash. Vehicle remained running but idle was very erratic. After ignition was turned off, I used a code reader and dtc "P2111" appeared on the reader (throttle body failure). After clearing the code, I restarted the vehicle and engine idle appeared normal. Drove vehicle for 20 miles with no other abnormalities. During a brief review of Ford recalls, tsb's, etc. I am finding that there are known issues with the throttle body on other models but for some reason not the Edge.

This has recurred 3 times in the last 3 weeks. The last time it happened, I was backing out of my driveway and the car started jerking, wouldn't accelerate and the wrench light came on. I turned the vehicle off, waited a couple of seconds, restarted it and it worked great. The time before I was going about 55 mph and the car did the same thing. I pulled over to the side of the road, turned it off and restarted and it worked great. I'm afraid to travel in the vehicle. The Ford dealership said it's the electronic throttle body and will cost $400+/- to fix.

Edge 4-cyl

  • 58,400 miles
Alarm and dash icon warn driver to shift into park. I pull off the road and shift into park with no problem apparent in the shift or transmission. This alarm is recurrent mostly when moving on the roadway and occasionally when car is still. This problem according to the Ford dealer is a defective switch in the shifter lever assembly. This is a $325 repair and too complex to complete myself. This issue is distracting to safe driving requiring finding the ok button or pulling off the roadway to shift the lever.

Edge 4-cyl

  • 57,500 miles
An irritating and distracting danger signal and display icon shows "driver door ajar" when in fact there is no problem. Early this month this occurred intermittently and is now consistent and repetitive every time I drive the automobile. Ford dealer service says this requires a $200 repair. This repair is too complex for me to complete. To silence the alarm one must look away from the roadway on several occasions to find the ok button.

I have been having intermittent issues with the sensor not reading that my driver side door is latched. Today, it is constant and will not even allow me to lock the doors! I have tried several times to get it to "latch" and clearly the door is closed, but the "door ajar" warning is still illuminated.

The contact owns a 2012 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the door ajar warning light remained illuminated and the door ajar chime would not disable. The contact also stated that the power locks failed to function properly. An independent mechanic diagnosed that the latch on the doors needed to replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 36,000.

Edge 6-cyl

Drivers side door ajar warning light will not shut off, nor will the warning bell stop ringing. I was quoted a price in excess of $400 to replace a simple door latch assembly, by my Ford dealer. I have researched this and this problem appears to have been going on for years! truly unacceptable, unless of course your name is bill Ford. Awful customer concern by them.

The driver door latch signals that the driver door is ajar when it is not. This prevents the door from locking and also affects the instrument panel display and interior lighting as well as the alarm system.

Driver door ajar warning comes on and will not go off due to defective door latch switch. Dealer repaired switch but did not replace it like I had wanted. Problem is solved for now but I'm sure it will come back. This needs to be a recall.
