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.

Vehicle door is closed but warning reads door ajar. Doors will not lock because the door is ajar but it's not. Inside stayed on for about 2 min while driving. Sometimes I get I'm and there are no problems then the doors will unlock and the door ajar shift to park pops on. Or I could be driving with the door ajar warning on but doors are closed then the doors lock and warning goes away. I thought it was the sensor but the door closes but does not latch.

The driver door latch is getting replaced as it tells us that the door is open when it is not. I have been told by the dealership that they have seen this happen in a lot of Ford Edge's. it is costing me $350 and I would like my money back from Ford. I don't believe that a 2013 should be having those kind of issues and Ford should fix the issue.

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. The contact stated that when the vehicle was started, all of the interior lights were on and the driver door ajar warning indicator illuminated. The contact opened and closed the driver side door several times; however, the failure persisted. The contact stated that the lights remained on and the door chime remained on while driving. The failure recurred on several occasions. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the driver side door latch was faulty and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 59,000.

Drivers door latch faulty. Causes "door ajar" and "shift to park" warning lights even though door completely shut. Ignoring the warning light is dangerous. Under warranty Ford's procedure is still to only clean the contacts and not replace the unit. This fault occurred again after they cleaned.

My door sensor on my driver's side continues to alert me that it's open, when it isn't. this causes my dome light to stay on and all my doors not to lock. I have to slam my door hard multiple times to get it to go off, or just drive with it on.

The passenger side door ajar light stays on and the interior lights even when the door is shut. I have to slam the door hard 4-5 times to get it to go off. While driving down the road the light will come on and the alert to "shift to park". I took it to a Ford dealer who charged me $80 to say there was nothing wrong. I came home, knowing this wasn't right and found numerous complaints online about the same issue. Ford needs to place a recall on this.

Drive door latch - door ajar signal will not clear - door locks will not operate properly.

  • 35,000 miles
Driver door ajar sensor does not recognize that door is closed. This prevents all doors from being in the locked position while operating the vehicle. Manually locking the doors is overridden by the system and automatically unlocked. Annoying alarm always going off while driving or idle. Not known if sensor malfunction or door not actually closed properly. Should be recalled for repair.

The driver side door says that it is ajar when it isnt. So annoying. The dealership said it will be 250 dollars to fix. Wtf? I have only had the car for 2 days.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 37,000 miles


The driver door almost always reports that it is ajar despite the fact that it is closed. It will occasionally stop reporting the problem if I repeatedly open and close the door. This prevents the doors from locking while the vehicle is in motion and causes the interior lights to remain on in the vehicle when parked for about 10 minutes. The alert will also chime every time I start from a complete stop which is very distracting.

While driving, at various speeds, the drivers side door warning comes up on the dash and a bell will ring saying that the door is ajar. Sometimes it says to put car in park. I open and close the door and it fixes the problem temporarily, only to happen again. Happening more and more frequently.

Door ajar warning system fails repeatedly causing auto door locks to unlock all doors repeatedly - this is apparently a problem with Ford Edge since 2006 or before - door locking system failure represents a real consumer hazard.

problem #3

Edge 4-cyl

  • 31,000 miles
The driver's door and right rear door sensors intermittently have a "door ajar" warning, though each door is completely shut. The sensor is inside the latch, and has a very high failure rate, based on cursory internet research. The warning can occur while driving, it alerts the driver to put the car in park. Ford categorizes the door ajar warning under 'safety' in its extended warranty plans, so I would conclude that not knowing whether the door is actually ajar or not is, in fact, a safety issue.

  • 42,000 miles
Internal electrical failure in the left front door latch with integral switch that sends a false door ajar signal to the dashboard instruments and audible alarm system. Begins as an intermittent issue then in a few days becomes constant. Annoying at the least. Distracting at the worst, especially for less experienced drivers. My repair was out of any warranty due to mileage.

1.driver's door arm rest and center arm rest do not align up, when both arms are on the arm rests. control know is in the way and makes it hard to use center lower electric console. 3.turn signal stays on when you use it to change lanes, have to reset it. 4.both front doors, lower storage area, is too long, as things tend to get stuck in the back of the storage area. storage area is hard to get to, and also things get behind the console and you cannot get to them. trunk cover, hook ups. 7.back seat did not go all the way down.
