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 alarm stays on regardless of if the door is closed or not. Only the driver's front door seems to be affected. Sometimes repeatedly closing the door (15+ times) will finally make the alarm go off.

There is an issue related to the driver side door latch. The car will not lock the constantly chimes the door is open when it is closed. Even after manually locking the door, the locks pop back up. Initially the problem started periodically and could be corrected by opening and closing the door several times. There were times when simply opening the window tripped the door ajar indicator. This is a safety issue not being able to close the door and have the constant chime and interior lights on.

Door ajar waring on dash appears with doors fully closed and keeps interior lights on for an extended period of time so that the car battery becomes drained. Took to dealer and was quoted $500 for the repair. Outrageous!

I keep getting a door ajar warning even when the door is completely shut. Therefore my lights stay on extra and my auto door locks wont lock, and I have a child in the rear seat so the child could open the door if I don't manually lock them...not safe!. upon searching, the door sensor needs to be replaced which is no easy task. Ford should replace for no fee.

Driver's side door keeps sounding the door ajar warning even when the door is firmly closed. No amount of open/closing seems to clear the warning and therefore the warning chimes occur every time the car reaches a stop in traffic. False warnings are dangerous and doors will not lock while car is on.

Driver side door does not close properly. Door ajar light stays on. Happens more in warm weather than cold. Has cause dome lights to stay on or come on intermittently. If car not driven for a day or two, has caused battery to drain completely. Roadside assistance has had to be called on multiple occasions. Has been happening for over a year. When car is in motion, car door ajar is constantly on, and anytime you break to a near stop, the alarm bell chimes.

The "door ajar" warning light will not turn off when the driver and rear left passenger doors are closed. The doors are closed firmly, but the warning light still shows the doors to be open. The doors are closed and locked, but the car registers them as open, and thus keeps the interior dome light on along with the exterior lights of the car. Without no way to turn off the lights they end up draining the battery.

Second time door ajar indicator came on in 1 year, drivers door and driver passenger door had to be replaced to the amount of $ $650. When this happens the inside light stays on, which in turn drains the battery. Obviously this happens a lot because there are self help videos to disable the mechanisms. I am inquiring as to being reimbursed for the above amount. I believe there is a problem due to the fact that the mechanism went bad on the same side. Repairs were made at timbrook Ford RR3 box 3280 keyser, wv 26726 P#304-788-7900 this happened Sept.2015 & Sept 2016.

Door latch sensor - drivers side door latch sensor is faulty. Randomly indicates door is open, unlocks all doors while car is being driven. Randomly unlocks vehicle while parked as well as turns lights on - thus draining battery and may leave driver stranded.
