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.

Driver side door switch sticks and the vehicle computer thinks the door is open when it is closed.

Driver's door ajar warning keeps coming on. It would go away after a few attempts, or some cleaner sprayed into the locking mechanism area. But now, it's warning at all times. Dome lights stay on, warning chimes when the car isn't moving quickly, and car doors won't lock B/C it thinks the door is ajar. I think that and having lights on when you're reversing at night are the two biggest safety issues. The other issues are just annoying and likely wearing out battery power with the lights staying on. I've read that some other Ford and Lincoln models have had recalls on this locking mechanism so hoping that the Edge gets the same treatment. Seems like a silly issue for a 2013 car with 37K miles on it.

Door ajar warning light stays on constantly. This is a safety concern as the doors will not lock and this endangers the safety of the occupants of the vehicle. The warning bell rings whenever the vehicle is in motion. Also, the interior lights stay on which is a major concern for night driving.

I just purchased my Ford Edge 2 weeks ago and the rear left door ajar light keeps coming on when the door is not open. I have stopped the car, open and closed the door but the light will still stay on. When we lock the doors at night, the alarm will go off several times in the middle of the night. Worried if the doors are even locking at this point. I called a Ford dealership and they said it was just a technical service bulletin and not a recall.

I am the owner of a 2013 Ford Edge. The driver door ajar light keeps coming on when the door is securely shut. The interior lights remain lit and doors will not lock. Sometimes it will go off after repeatedly slamming the door shut but not always. I feel this is a danger because of driving at night with the light on. I also have children in the car that could possibly open the door while the car is going.

  • 40,000 miles
After about 40,000 miles, my car started alerting me that my drivers door was ajar when clearly it was closed. I closed it again and again, but the alert still won't go off. The interior dome lights stay on and the doors do not lock after moving forward down the road. This can be a real safety issue! I'm afraid someone might carjack me with my doors not locking! also, as I stop at stop signs or stop lights, it continually alerts me to put my car in park and shut drivers door. When I do park, get out and lock my car, the dome lights again will not go off. I'm afraid I'll come out after work to a dead battery! please do something! it has been doing this since October 2015!

Drivers door ajar light stay illuminated in the instrument cluster and dome lights won't shut off. Had had it to dealer 2 times in the last year and problem would be resolved for 2 months and then would happen again.

problem #282

Jan 012016


  • 45,000 miles
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.

problem #277

Feb 102016


  • 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.
