A warning light is displayed stating the the passenger door is ajar when it is not. The door can be repeatedly opend and closed attempting to make the warning light go off, it does not work the majority of the time. The interior lights will not go off, which makes driving a hazard. Also, the door will not look when the warning light is on. Another safety concern.

Door ajar sensor failed and says doors are open when they are latched. You are not able to lock the doors when driving with this alarm

About a year ago, the driver door ajar light came on and will not go out. This has caused the battery to drain multiple times due to interior lights staying on all the time. Every time the vehicle comes to a stop, the "shift to park" warning comes on along with the door chime. Ford claims it was not under warranty and quoted ~$400 to replace (~$250 if it could be "repaired"). a few weeks ago, the rear passenger side ajar light came on and will not go out. Due to this, we can no longer lock the rear door while driving. This is the location of our child's seat! also, we no longer can tell if the doors are properly closed or not.

The driver door ajar warning light will often remain on even when the door is clearly closed. The light will also randomly come on while driving and the interior lights will illuminate, making night driving especially dangerous.

Driver door sensor keeps telling me the door is ajar when it is not. It will do this while you are cruising down the freeway causing you to freak out thinking one of the kids has opening a door in the back seat! this will be the 2nd time I've had to take this in to be fixed since owning the car, which is coming up on one year.

The driver door ajar indication even when the door is closed. The warning keeps alerting the driver. It says shift to park and close the door. But the door is closed. This is a safety issue. This occurs when at a stop or just before leaving a stop light.

Driver's door ajar notification on dash panel when door is closed. Dome lights stay on leading to drained battery and locks will not engage due to vehicle not recognizing door is closed. Door locks do not engage when driving or exiting the car, even when door is tightly closed. Locks do not engage and dome lights remain on when stationary as well as in motion and vehicle notifies to shift to park and claims drivers door is ajar. No recalls and very pricey to have local dealership inspect, diagnose, and replace entire door latch mechanism. I have only owned my car for a year. 47,349.8 miles. Have done extensive online research and found many other owners having the same issue.

Door ajar sensors/light doesn't indicate when doors are closed, and will come on for no reason when vehicle is driving. This causes the interior lights to illuminate and doors unlock/unable to lock. Very dangerous at night or when I dirve with children in the car.

The warning light that the driver door is ajar is constantly on, even though the door is shut. This prevents the doors from locking when the car is on, and when driving. It also keeps the interior and perimeter lights on, until they 'time out, ' wearing down the battery.

Safety issue regarding door latch and door ajar sensor. Sensor has failed and continues to think the door is ajar which causes the doors not able to lock, and the interior light stays on and causes windshield glare when driving at night. This is a safety hazard as you cannot lock the doors for protection and you can't see properly to drive at night.

Driver door ajar light remains on at all times, not sure if door is closed all of the way or not, dome lights remain on as well. This happens while parked whether keys are in the ignition or not and also while driving.

Driver side door ajar issue. 2 years ago I had the issue, took it to the dealership to have the latch replaced because the car thought the driver side door was ajar. They replaced the latch and now I am having the same issue with the replacement latch on the driver side door. This doesn't allow the doors to be locked since the car thinks the doors are open. Also, interior lights come on. This can be a safety hazard and appears to be a re-occurring problem.

See attached document post to Ford. Our problems have been ongoing for a few months....one repair after another. I have noted the date of the "unable to turn off lights"issue but have documentation for all repairs this year.

The "door ajar" sensor seems to be broken intermittently causing the lights in the car come on (or not go off) making it difficult to see and very dangerous to drive. I nearly collided with a parked car when turning as the light came on. This is a clear safety issue and somebody is going to get killed because of it.

2012 Ford Edge, "drivers door ajar" message on constantly. Doors cannot be locked when vehicle started!! interior lights remain lit and battery drains! message says to "put car in park and close drivers door". door closes without issue but drivers door ajar message does not go away. Suspect switch is bad in door. This can be a very dangerous situation if doors cannot be locked after starting vehicle!! could lead to carjacking theft or my wife and children being stranded if battery dies. This needs to be addressed immediately!!

My Ford Edge,2012, had a "door ajar" warning and it required slamming the door very hard to get the warning removed. My lights would stay on after I parked and again require slamming the door multiple times. My back up camera will work and then not work making that safety feature unreliable! I had the door latch replaced at a cost of 325 dollars. Other Ford products have also experienced these problems and are under a recall. I believe this issue is not the result of careless treatment by my wife or me. We are both over 70 years old.
