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.

Unable to lock doors from within cabin due to door ajar sensor. Child easily opens door while driving. Had a stranger open my door and got in passenger seat thinking it was his mothers car, than goodness he did not have a gun. Lack of safety and security function.

The contact owns a 2012 Ford Edge. After starting the vehicle, the front driver side door ajar sensor illuminated erroneously, indicating that the door was not closed. When the failure occurred, the interior dome light would remain illuminated for an extended period. While operating the vehicle, an audible alarm would activate and a warning message to park the vehicle would display. The cause of the failure was not diagnosed or repaired. The failure mileage was 48,700.

The driver's side "door ajar" light stays on even after door has shut and been slammed. The interior light stays on while slowly moving, eventually the inside light turns off but when you stop, the car starts dinging and reads "put vehicle in park" I believe this is a safety issue because when leaving a driveway or parking lot at night, you cannot see anything around you outside because of the interior light remaining on until you reach a speed of around 10-15 mph. I'm worried that I may strike an object or person because of visibility issues.

Drivers door ajar light wont go off no matter what I do to it. Causing the dome light to stay on while driving and not being able to lock the doors at all. I contacted my local Ford dealer and they told me to try cleaning it with some wd 40 and if that doesn't work to bring it in and they will run some tests on it which would cost me over 300 bucks and then they would go ahead and change the door latch which would cost me another 200 dollars or so and couldn't guarantee that the problem wouldn't come back. A lot of complaints about this same problem Ford needs to step up to the plate and fix the problem.

The door ajar warning stays on even when door is closed. At night, the interior lights stay on for 30 seconds- reducing visibility. When driving in slow traffic or after moving from a stop, vehicle beeps and says to shift into park, and then vanishes. Distracting and annoying! mileage at 66K.

Have had the same issues with both the driver door and rear passenger (drivers side) latch or sensor improperly working. Both door latches and or sensors malfunctions make the door ajar light in the instrument panel stay lit, and makes the overhead lights stay on. The interior light staying on makes it difficult to drive at night and also drains the battery.

The driver door ajar sensor light is faulty. The sensor light will not go off and therefor the doors do not lock and the dome light does not go off. Took my car to the dealership and as soon as I told him the problem he told me what kind of car I was driving. This tells me that I'm not the only one with this problem. I feel as though there should be a recall as there is some danger that the doors do not lock.

Door ajar and latch issue *door ajar signal stays on when door is close *interior lights stays on *inability to lock doors while in vehicle *faulty latch these safety issues are all one issue these are safety issues and are all one issue.

Known problem with Ford Edge based on numerous complaints. Driver side door ajar sensor goes off crippling door lock mechanism. Not only do lights stay on draining battery but unable to lock door presents safety problem. Ford has a tsb for electrical cleaning but that is not effective over time. Problems repeats itself with only known fix to be door latch replacement.

Whenever I entry the vehicle and attempt to close the drivers door, the door ajar warning light comes on. If I don't continue to close the door (at least 4 times) the dome light stays on. The car tells me to put the car in park. When I lock it with the remote, it will beep twice instead of once, a warning that the car is not secure. I can no longer lock or unlock the drivers side by using my hand if the key is on my person. I can do that from the passenger side. My alarm goes off as my car is sitting in my drive way. I had the car diagnosed at the local Ford dealer. It is a faulty driver door switch. Speaking with Ford directly and the dealer, I am told that this is not covered because my car is no longer under warranty. This is occurring because the switch is faulty. When researching this problem, it appears to be an ongoing problem and a safety issue. I purchased this expensive Ford new and have always had it serviced at the dealers. I don't understand why Ford does not see this as a problem and active a recall. Thank you.

I was driving home from work and the driver information center displayed "driver door ajar" when the door was definatly shut and locked. After a few minutes this alarm went away and it returned a few days later on my way to the store. The frequency of this problem has been increasing and now my car alarm sounds off seemingly at will, mid-day or midnight because the computer thinks someone opened the door without the key. Last night it was going off at 4am. I am concerned that interelated safety equipment might not function because the computer thinks the door is open. This problem also prevents the auto-lock function from working, so someone could open my door at a redlight or in traffic. The repair bill for this problem is just over five hundred dollars. This is clearly an example of inferior parts costing the defenseless consumer money and Ford Motor Co. Repeat customers. If you do an online search, you will see that this is a common problem.

2fmdk4jcxcba79557 without injury or change by us to the car, the "door ajar" warning began showing up in the instrument panel. The door is securely closed. The warning is on the panel, the warning beep is sounding, and the interior light remains on until you drive forward about 30 feet. This makes backing out of parking spaces, driveways, etc difficult because there is no way to see where you are going because of the bright light. Lubricating the door latch assembly does nothing to help. Updated 10/9/15.......updated 10/19/15 updated 12/21/15
