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.

My door ajar light is coming on. The dome light is staying on and the shirt to park is coming on when this happens. My brakes went out while I was driving down a busy highway. I was told that for extended the warranty on the brake bosster but this is not a recall.... I could have been killed! I would like to have know that my life was in danger before this happened.

My drivers door and the back door behind the driver's seat, the door ajar light and warning comes on after I have shut the doors securely and will not go off. Very agruavating! I have taken the car to a Ford shop and they tell it will cost approximately $600 to repair.

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.

problem #220

  • 39,000 miles


The driver door sensor states the door is ajar, although it is closed, registers open. The latch is defective.the door ajar warning sounds on the dash board, dome lights stay on and doors do not lock. Door has to be opened and slammed closed many times for the warning to go off, but only temporarily. Hard to lock car, dome light stays on. Happens while driving, in park, basically anytime the car is on. Had the issue fixed at a dealership - had to pay $494!! I see this is an issue with many Ford Edge owners - Ford needs to get this fixed and recall - unsafe!!!

Driver door ajar when not. Door locks do not engage while driving, interior dome lights remain on which drains battery and unable to drive at night due to this. Major safety issue. Can not lock vehicle from outside or set alarm all interior locks remain on and do not shut off

problem #218

  • 54,000 miles
1) "shift to park" error: Have to click the shifter one or two times to clear it. Until I do, the seat does not move back for exiting. 2) "driver door ajar" error: Have to open and close the door, sometimes only once, but usually many times in order to clear the error. 3) if the "door" error is not cleared, the "shift" error will appear while moving, whenever I come to a stop. Also, the audible signal will kick in. 4) at times the driver door will not unlock with the touch of my hand. I suspect when I shut the door last, the "door" error was probably in effect. Service: I actually took my car to the dealer and all they could tell me was that the shifter had to be replaced for $500. They couldn't even find the "door" error. I think this merits a recall notice and Ford should repair these problems at no or reasonable costs.

Passenger door ajar sensor is malfunctioning. System does not recognize hat the door is closed and will not allow doors to lock posing safety issue. Also the dome light will not turn off due to the sensor not recognizing that the door is closed. Even after repeatedly shutting door (over 10 times) the sensor will pop on during driving of the vehicle. Done lights remain on after car is turned off which drains the battery.

The door sensor says the driver's door is open when it is not and stays on. This does not allow the door locks to close and is unsafe. The interior lights also go on and stay on for a period of time.

problem #213

  • 70,000 miles
When starting and shutting off the car, the "driver door ajar" warning comes on and interior lights will not shut off. You have to continually slam the door to get both to go out. Sometimes the warning light and interior lights come on while driving. This makes it extremely difficult to see the road when it's dark outside. I almost went into a ditch last week because of this issue. I started complaining about this issue while still under warranty but the Ford dealer did not fix it. Now they want $500 to correct the problem. Ford should be accountable for this known safety issue - not the consumer.

problem #212

  • 96,000 miles
The driver's door sensor is malfunctioning. It alerts you that the door is open when it is clearly shut and shut well. I believe it is the sensor. The sensor is in the door panel and not easily replaced. This problem causes the lights to not go off and door alert to stay on, in effect distracting the driver and misinforming them of a problem. This may affect the car doing other things if it thinks the door is open when it is not. This happens when vehicle is stationary and continues while moving. It is not an adjustment problem with the latch.

Door ajar warning keeps coming on, sometimes when your first get in the car it will not shut off, dome light is on, will also come on while driving eventhough there was no sensor light on when first driving, shut door several times, soft or hard and will not go off, very annoying since the sound goes off that indicates door is ajar, cannot lock doors when this happens while driving, at night the dome light being distracts from driving and harder to see the road, took to dealership they could not find problem since it was intermittent, now it happens more than not. Please recall
