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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The door ajar comes on when the door is completely shut. The safety of my children are a concern because the doors do not lock and you can't manually lock the doors. You can slam your door 100 times but it still stays on. This happens when my vehicle is parked and in motion.

My vehicle is a 2012 Ford Edge and has approx 43,000 miles on it. The door ajar warning illuminates on the dash even though I have clearly slammed the door shut. It leaves the dome lights on the car which is dangerous at night while backing out of the driveway as it obscures you vision, and while driving it illuminates a yellow warning to shift the car into park and has a consistent ''dinging'' noise that is very distracting if you are driving less than 30mph. These warnings happen both while in park and when in motion driving less than 30 mph.

Driver door sensor intermittentlyy goes out. Door will close properly and will start driving and sometimes the switch activates while I am driving even on the freeway. The door is clearly shut (at least I think it is). Other issue is if the door sensor is saying door is open, the auto door locks when you go over 10 mph does not work.

Door ajar at driver's side "on" intermittently, either parked or driving until it remained "on" all the time even after shifting to park, opening and closing the door, turning the engine on and off. Warning showed need to shift to park. Hazardous when driving, especially on the freeway. Ford maintenance repaired/cleaned latch on 4/2015 and charged $269.90. Same problem reappeared on 12/2015. Ford maintenance replaced/repair faulty door latch on 1/2016 and charged $317.

The drivers door closing sensor does not operate properly. Without the door being closed the lights stay on and many other electronics do not work properly if the door is registered as open. This includes draining the battery because I can't get the lights shut off when I am not driving the car. In Feb 2015, I was told that it needed to be cleaned, so the dealer charged me $250 to tear apart the door to clean the sensor. Just 10 months later it started to happen again.

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.

Door ajar signal stays on when door is closed, interior lights stay on, the door does not lock. The dome light stays on creating a safety hazard while driving at night. The false door ajar signal prevents the door from locking. This is a major safety issue. This happens both when stationary and while driving. Today November 11, 2016 is the fourth time I have taken in the car for the same issue.

I have a 2012 Ford Edge. It loss power when I drive at 20mph in the noon. The yellow wrench light was on and the car started shaking. The engine was still working at that time. I was stopped in the middle of the road to turn left. I turn off the car and restart it. It worked well. It happened twice in a week. Ford dealer auto service in santa monica wouldn't find the problem. I am still in extension warranty. Ford customer service have no solution except asking me to try other dealer auto service. I just pray for a good luck...

The panel shows driver door ajar all the time while driving the interior lights stay on after car has been locked for some time the lights go on even if the car has not been used for a while while the door ajar is on, the doors do not lock-safety issue, car in motion I tried getting the dealer I bought the car from to repair it, they stated that they could not because there was not recalls on my issues. But if I wanted it repaired it would cost me $350 to change the sensor that may be causing the problem. I believe the dealer sold me a lemon...the door ajar comes up as I close the left door as I put the car in motion;the doors do not lock while the car is in motion; interior lights is when the car is parked; the lights go on when the car is parked in the garage. The battery has died a couple of times as a result of this.
