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.

"takata recall" driver side door adjar sensor remains on all the time even though the door is closed securely. This causes the vehicle not be secured properly and causes alerts to sound while driving.

2013 Edge drivers door alarm remains on even after closure, the interior lights remain on and the doors do not lock. I'm lucky if after the 6-7th door slam the light may go out, otherwise I have to drive around with the alarm continuously on. Now a shift into park light is also coming on. Used to love my Edge, but slowly thinking divorce.

When you close the driver side door the instrument panel gives a false warning saying the door is ajar and the dome light stays on. This happens when the car is stationary. After several attempts of opening and closing the door the warning disappears, but then while the car is moving the warning returns and the dome light comes back on and the doors unlock. This seems to be a pretty common problem and my car currently has 48,000 miles on it. This warning issue has been going on for about 1 month.

  • 50,000 miles
Door ajar sensor switch is malfunctioning and cannot sense when door is closed. Doors will not lock properly or automatically because switch is malfunctioning. This is occurring both while the car is parked and in motion. Sometimes while driving the door ajar light will come on randomly. As I often have a child in the car, I am concerned about the inability for the car to detect when the door is closed and when it is not and the related locking of the doors.

Driver door ajar light comes at various times while driving even though the door is closed. This causes the interior lights to come on and remain on. This makes it very difficult and dangerous to drive this vehicle at night. This is an obvious safety related issue and Ford should fix it through a recall.

The "door adjar" light and warning sounds come on our Ford Edge when the vehicle is started and it tells us to shift the gear shifter into park. None of the doors are open. This has become a problem every time the vehicle is used.

Center dash display -- several trips to the dealer with adjustment to the gear shift lever has not corrected the problem. The dealers says that the gear shift parking contact is not signaling the dash display. If the car is left for several days, the display problem creates a dead battery. This condition exists when the ignition is off, keys are removed, all doors are shut and the vehicle is in park. This issue has existed from 2014 through Feb. 2, 2016 and is ongoing.

  • 2,500 miles
Upon starting the engine, we have had sporadic driver's door ajar indications with dash alarm & interior lighting affected. This has plagued us from 2500 miles to the present (February 2016 @ 36,000 miles). First incident occurred shortly after purchase of vehicle on April 1, 2013. Several trips to the dealer w/door adjustments & "burning of the contacts" has not solved the intermittent problem that comes back sometimes for several days at a time. We always check the door to make sure that it is shut & continue to drive the car w/warning and interior lights on. At night this issue creates an unsafe driving condition. I feel this is a recall issue because of the safety nature of this problem. The dealer has been very elusive, not supplying paperwork concerning this issue. Maybe Ford is playing Dodge ball on this, but they are only making enemies of their customers.

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. The contact stated that after the front driver's side door was closed, the door ajar warning indicator illuminated continuously. In addition, the interior dome light remained illuminated. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 28,000.

My driver side door ajar warning will not go off. The door is completely closed. This is causing the interior lights to stay on, the alarm chimes everytime I stop and the doors will not lock. If the car is parked it is causing the battery to drain. This issue began a couple of weeks ago intermittently but is now constantry happening.
