The contact owns a 2012 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled without warning four months ago. The contact's husband replaced the half shaft, but the failure recurred. The vehicle was coasted to the side of the road and was unable to restart. The contact was unsure whether the VIN was included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V393000 (power train). The contact was to check with the manufacturer for more disclosure concerning the recall. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence. The failure mileage was not available.

Door ajar light stays "on" even when door is closed with car in driving mode. Started happening with 39K miles on vehicle. Took to dealership for repair on 11/10/14 for repair cost of $272. Repair only lasted 15 months and now same problem is back. Dealership will not repair for free since past 6 month repair date. It's time for Ford to stand up & issue a recall for this problem since it is a safety issue as others have stated.

My "door ajar" signal won't turn off for my drivers door. I have bought three new batteries and been stranded three times due to power drain when lights and sound system would not shut down due to this issue. In addition to money and time, it is a safety issue because the doors won't lock while driving and the interior light remain on while driving.

Door ajar indicator sensor fails. Despite the drivers door being fully closed the indicator pops up on screen. Dome lights stays on, and doors remain unlocked. Did find out it's not how hard you close the door. It seems to be the number of time which is random.

Door ajar light stays on even after closing door several times. This causes the doors to stay unlocked and the dome light on. It also intermittently will turn on at night while just sitting in the driveway draining the battery. It is very dangerous to be driving around with the doors unlocked and with the dome light on at night.

My 2012 Ford Edge, drivers door adjar switch, keeps indicating the door is open, when the door is closed, because of other accessories attached to this switch, it makes it difficult, to drive at night, the buzzer nose, make you turn the radio up so you want have to listen to the noise, and the dome lights stays on while you are driving, and the instrument info keeps going back to the issue, also so it tells you to put car in park door adjar, after researching this everyone tells me to break the switch, because if you fix it, it will keep coming back, because the mechanism that works the switch is poorly mad, when the plastic wears, it will not open fully to complete the circuit.

Drivers door ajar warning when the door is closed. Does not happen all the time but is getting worse. The issue happened before the vehicle was 2 years old and was fixed under warranty. Now it is happening again at the 4 year make and not under warranty. This part should last the normal life span of the vehicle and barely lasts two years. Very poor design and quality of this part makes me hate this vehicle and Ford in general. Lots of other complaints filed regarding this matter and no need for me to repeat the safety issues.

"door ajar" dash light remains on even after closing the door multiple times. This prevents the doors from locking while driving and is a hazard for small children who ride in the back and have access to open the door.

My 2012 Ford Edge continues to alert as I am driving that my driver side door is ajar when in reality it is not. I have video of this because it distracts me as I am driving due to the red alert posted on the panel along with the high pitch beep/alarm as the warning. I than have to continually hit the reset button with my left thumb in order to silence the warning until it starts all over again within seconds. While researching this problem, it seems that it is very common within these Ford vehicles. It would be greatly appreciated if this could be addressed as a recall. This has been a problem with my vehicle for many months now. One stage observation is that the aforementioned malfunction becomes occurs much more often once the temperature outside exceeds 65 degrees or higher for some reason.
