The door ajar alarm will sound even when the door is secure. When this occurs the interior lights come on and it gives a audible signal. Interior lights coming on are hazardous when driving at night especially when it happens expectantly. This activation also causes the lights to stay on after you leave the vehicle. This has caused the battery to drain and not being able to start the engine. This happen to my wife while at work. Fortunately, this time, it wasn't in a remote location, but it could happen. Ford refuses to recall or repair at their cost, even though I had it repaired previously (while under warranty).

Sync intermittently shuts down sometimes for days at a time. When sync shuts down, the back-up camera is non-functioning which eliminates safe backing. There is no way to see small people or items that might be directly behind the vehicle....very dangerous!!!

Door ajar light remains on when all doors are shut. System constantly advises driver to shift to park while driving and continues chiming that driver's door is open. Doors will not lock, many safety features will not engage because computer believes driver's door to be open.

"door open" indicator light comes on and will not turn off when the car is turned on. When this happens, you cannot lock the doors, which is a safety issue. The interior lights also stay on... which makes it more difficult to drive at night (also a safety issue). This is the second time our car has had this issue. We had the door latch replaced the first time in 2014. It recently started occurring again on two doors in our car. It costs $500 per door to fix each occurrence. Ford should own up to this issue that is being reported by multiple people and fix it before someone gets hurt, robbed, or killed because they can't lock their doors.
