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.

The driver side door latch assembly has went bad and it is a problem that Ford refuses to address. It keep the light on in the cabin of the car and the door doesn't lock appropriately for safety.

Safety issue with door ajar warning, dome light stays on, door does not lock while driving. A warning chimes " put back in park." The doors cannot be locked from the inside. Slamming the door to eliminate warning ┐door ajar┐ risk injury and damage to other components. Research shows a long standing nationwide problem and no recall. To the dealer it goes to provide safety to the family.

Door ajar warning, dome light stays on, door does not lock with key pad, door does not stay locked from the inside. When closing the door, the "door ajar" warning lights up on the instrument panel, a warning chimes, the dome light stays on, and the doors cannot be locked from the inside (or when existing the car, the keypad becomes inoperative). No amount of slamming, closing gently or multiple closing of door rectifies the condition. Have taken car to dealership, they weren't aware of any problem, said there was dirt build up, so they diagnosed the problem, cleaned something and charged $120 to tell me to keep the lock mechanism clean. That lasted for about a month. Still having problem with the "door ajar" warning light

Faulty driver door sensor. Always shows door ajar which then drains the battery. Ford replaced it when under warranty only to have it go bad again out of warranty. Ford is well aware of this problem and will not recall a defective design. Charging customers $500 and up to fix the problem with no guarantee it won't just happen again.

Sensor on pessenger door is showing open an door is not open and inside lights stay on and runs the battery down. Had to replace battery due to inside lights staying on. Doors will not lock when existing vehicle. Driving at night and inside light stays on is a driving safety factor. Car has been in the shop four times for this same reason. Unable to fix it.

Even though the driver's side door is properly closed, the door ajar indicator light will all of a sudden come on and then the interior lights will also come one which is very hazardous if you are driving at night. Also when this happens you cannot lock the doors which makes it not safe for children or adults with disabilities whom may be a passenger in the car as well. Sometimes you have to slam the door about 15 times before it stops or it might not stop at all.

2012 Ford Edge with 51,000 miles. Driver door ajar warning keeps coming on when door is not ajar both when vehicle is moving or not moving. I can open and close the door several times and sometimes it will go off sometimes it won't. it will even come on 20-40 minutes after I've been driving at times when door has not been reopened and closed. It even came on after the passenger door was opened and closed, driver door ajar not passenger door ajar. Whenever I stop, the shift to park warning also comes on wanting me to shut my door so I have two warnings beeping at me. Interior lights will not go off until I start moving forward so I can't see behind me backing out of driveways and stalls at night which is scary. I have gotten to where I just ignore the warnings as many people do with their check engine and seatbelt warnings knowing my door is closed. But what if one day it actually isn't closed and my door does come open while driving causing an accident and injury" I did purchase the part at a cost of $210.37 as Ford refuses to pay to have this fixed saying it is not a recall or safety issue. The warning lights are safety features but this is not a safety issue"

Typical "door is ajar" error message. Upon closing the door, the error message "door is ajar" pops up and the dome lights stay on with the chimes ringing. I also have a problem with the error message "shift to park". I believe these could be related. Ford dealer replaced the switch assembly but this didn't solve my problem. This needs recalled as thousands are experiencing this saftey issue with this vehicle!

At 46,000 miles the driver's side door sensor isn't operating properly. When the door is shut, the sensor thinks the door is open. This causes the interior lights to stay on until you get to more than 15mph. It also causes beeping from the warning indicator telling you to shift the vehicle into park. This sensor is part of the entire latch assembly & not covered under warranty after 36,000 miles. It is very distracting as each time the sensor thinks the door is open and you come to a stop, the warning indicator beeps and says to shift into park.

The driver door ajar censor would not go off despite the fact that the door was actually closed. This caused my dome lights to stay on, the car symbol to stay illuminated on the panel, the doors to stay unlocked, and the warning tone to sound while driving. All of these issues occur while stationary and while in motion. I had the par replaced at the dealership for $387 and after one year and two weeks the problem has started to reoccur in the same fashion.

Door ajar light came on and would not go off. Slammed door multiple times and problems still existed. Spent $454 dollars to repair the problem. About one month later, purchased 4 new tires($846). Then, in 2 weeks, tire pressure sensor default light came on and would not go off. Had to replace to the tune of $130.

October of 2014, I purchased a 2012 Ford Edge. Only a few months of owning it the 'door ajar' warning would continue to show up, even though the door was clearly closed. This has still continued, its now November 2015. I went to a dealership at one point and they simply let me know how much it will be to fix, not once did they mention this is a recurring problem. Ford needs to take notice of this issue and actually show they care for their customers. I have recently reviewed many others complaining of the same issue. This is a huge red flag that needs to be looked at. I do not feel safe driving my car anymore, with my child especially. The doors do not lock once the car is in drive, that scares me. Also since the door does not appear to be closed according to the computer, the dome light stays on, making it hard to start driving at night. I have also bought a new battery and already it is drained due to the light staying on for about 20 minutes before turning off. When I purchase a vehicle I need to feel safe about my choice and at first I did, I love my car but no longer feel safe driving it.

Door ajar warning comes on after shutting the drivers door. I have taken this in 2 times since I had this under warranty to have it fix and now it has happen again. With this problem these are the other problems caused by it. ┐ the dome light stays on and creates a night driving hazard. ┐ the dome light stays on and creates a safety hazard when sitting in a public area at night. ┐ the false door ajar signals prevents the driver from recognizing a real door ajar situation... very dangerous. ┐ the doors will not lock which is a major safety issue. ┐ faulty latch. The car has only 33000 miles on it and this is the 3rd time this has happen. This should be recall before someone gets hurt or kill by a faculty sensor that people will start ignoring because it doesn't work.
