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.

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.

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.

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.

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. The contact stated that even when the vehicle's doors were closed, the door ajar warning indicator illuminated. In addition, the interior lighting remained illuminated for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the vehicle needed to be reprogrammed. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the vehicle needed a new door latch. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 49,000.

The drivers side door indicator continually says door is ajar when the car is in motion and parked. I have to slam the door several times to get the vehicle to recognize the door is in fact closed. I had this issue about a year ago, took it to dealer who took the door apart and cleaned it. This seemed to resolve the issue for a while, but it's back again and increasing in frequency. I see many similar complaints, this is obviously a popular issue. Would like Ford to recognize and issue a recall on this sensor.

Edge

  • 55,000 miles
The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. The contact stated that an unknown front door latching mechanism failed to properly register that the vehicle door was closed. As a result, an internal warning message informing the contact to put the vehicle in park and close the door displayed. In addition, the contact stated that the warning message chimed until the vehicle was placed into the park position. The contact further stated that when the vehicle was stopped and turned off, the interior light failed to function properly and shut off causing the battery to be drained. The vehicle was taken to be diagnosed where the contact was informed that the door lock mechanism needed to be replaced. It was unknown if the vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the issue. The failure mileage was 55,000.

Driver door ajar warning stays on when door is closed, in park and in drive, and will not recognize the door is closed. Safety issue is lights stay on making it difficult to see when driving at night. It also does not shut off the overhead lights after exiting the vehicle, which has drained and ruined the battery(which I have replaced because I was left stranded several times) this vehicle has 54,000 miles on it. This complaint needs to be reviewed and a recall issued to repair this.
