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 instrument panel gives an incorrect warning that the drivers door is ajar. The drivers door is securely closed but the warning stays on. The doors are unable to be locked which is a major safety concern. The overhead dome lights remain on and do not shut off as long as this false warning signal is on which is again a major safety issue when driving at night. After shifting to drive, the alarms sound and the instrument panel says "shift to park" which again is a major safety concern as it is very distracting when trying to drive the vehicle. Since this is a major safety issue Ford should recall this vehicle to repair this electrical failure.

Drivers side door ajar sensor became faulty with less than 50,000 miles on vehicle. Door requires multiple closings in order for the sensor to identify that the door is closed. It is an ongoing issue since 10/8/15.

Edge

  • 34,500 miles
Driver side door ajar sensor stays on all the time even though the door is closed securely. This causes the vehicle not to be secured properly during operation and causes faulty annoying alerts to sound intermittently while driving. It also causes interior dome lights to stay on causing a dangerous obstruction to vision while driving at night. When parked with the engine off, the interior lights will stay on and drain the battery.

My 2013 Ford Edge door latch incorrectly reports that the door is open when it is not. This turns the interior lights on and drains the battery, also will not let you turn on the alarm or lock the doors from the inside. Constantly chimes and tell you to put in park to shut door.

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.

  • 47,000 miles
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.
