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.

The display reads: "shift into park" with the vehicle moving when the door ajar indicator (falsely)reports the door is ajar. This is a problem that multiple Ford owners have reported and is ongoing since the 2007 model year.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 47,000 miles
At randon the driver door ajar light & warning will appear. This prevents doors from being locked while the key is in the ignition switch. Door is secure and closed. Warning light will sometimes come on while driving. I am concerned it presents a security issue while driving in some urban areas. Ford dealership where I bought the car said that they had seen the problem before and, since it was outside the warranty period, would cost approx. $300 to repair.

Edge 6-cyl

  • miles
Vehicle equipped with myford touch system. System controls heating/defrosting system. This system has failed to operate properly on multiple occasions. Ford Motor Company is aware of issue and has not corrected it. Ford should not be allowed to market vehicles that do not have properly functioning heating/defrosting controls. These vehicles are dangerous and the issue is well know by internet searches. People rely on vehicles to operate properly in winter conditions. This needs to be addressed. Thank you for your help.
