The switch that controls the circuit that detects if the driver door is closed or not is defective. An internet search shows this is a common issue on these vehicles. It is a safety issue in that the doors will unlock (including the rear doors) automatically while the vehicle is in motion. Also, due to the vehicle believing the door is open, it will drain the battery and leave the car unable to start after parking. This happens while the vehicle is stationary, or when moving, and will even fail while driving even after closing the door many times to ensure the switch ends up in the right condition. At times, it takes 30 or more open close cycles for the switch to operate correctly, but will sometimes "open" again while driving down the road.

Door ajar warning keeps coming on when the door is fully shut. When it is showing, the car is unable to lock the doors as the car is moving and the lights stay on making it very difficult to drive at night. Not having the doors lock is a major safety issue as we have young children that ride in the car. Also, it allows others to open the doors unexpectedly. Ford should stand up and fix the safety issue. Beyond the safety issue the battery is being drained as the lights stay on and we don't notice it until we go to use the car again.

Driver door ajar light stays on even when the door is shut!interior dome lights stay on and it tells you to shift the car to park. Does not matter how many times you shut the door it is still sensing it is open. I have to shut the door mulitple times and use the key fob until the lights go off so the battery does not run down. You can shut the door and finally get it to turn off, then start driving and it will tell you to shift to park that the door is ajar and the dome lights come on. The estimate from the dealer to repair is $500. This is a major safety concern because my door will not lock while it is showing its ajar and I have children in the back seat that could open it, it is very distracting, frustrating and when it happens at night my lights will not go off and you can not see clearly. I have seen so many complaints regarding this and is very disappointed that Ford is not concerned as well!!!!

Driver ajar light stays on even when the door is shut. An audible warning repeats and visual warning to place the car in park. Interior dome lights sometimes stay on in that the sensor indicates the door is open. Dealer verified sensor error also noted this is a recurring problem Ford Edge vehicles.

Driver door sensor does not register that door is closed (says door is ajar) and automatic locks will not lock as a result. Touch lock and unlock will not respond unless sensor registers that door is fully closed. Dome lights remain lit because the vehicle thinks the door is open making it difficult to see when driving at night. Ongoing issue since February 2016.

My door ajar indicator will not stop alerting me that my door is open regarless of the doors staet closed or not. So now when driving my interior over head lights will not go off even at night impairing my vision. Ford dealer ship refuses to fix this problem I only have 35000 miles on the vehicle and this is the second time I have taken it in for this same failure. The first time they fixed it and it lasted about a year now they refuse to fix it. Not only do I have to disconnect my battery at night or the lights wear it down but now that my interior lights stay on at night it makes it hard to see the traffic around me.
