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.

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 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.

  • 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.

While vehicle still under warranty on July 1, 2015 took vehicle to dealer for door ajar light not going off. On 12/7/2015 took it in again but had to pay a deductible since the 36 month warranty/mileage had expired. First the dealer kept the vehicle over night to fix but the second time they stated that I had to pay the deductible for a door latch. I asked the rep several times what was done before and why that I had to pay for something that the workmanship did not last and she stated I'll have to see but never gave any information when I picked the vehicle up. Ford should recall for door ajar problems and I should get my deductible back.

problem #239

Nov 282015


  • 68,000 miles
Driver's door switch malfunctioning causing vehicle to think left front door is ajar, even when it's securely latched. This causes the car to emit a constant warning chime while the key is in the ignition under any operating conditions: Vehicle off, accessory, key on, not running, and in run. The chime also sounds each time the brake pedal is released after each stop, with the chime overriding the turn signal sound. Interior lights do not shut off at low speeds, obscuring vision at night. Also, all door lock function is overridden (automatic and manual), allowing any door to be opened at any time - whether vehicle is in motion or not. In my specific case, the door ajar warning could occasionally be cured by aggressively slamming the drivers door shut several times. Our vehicle has the extremely expensive and inherently fragile acoustic glass installed, which shattered when the door was slammed with the window in the down position. I am replacing the faulty latch and door glass myself at my own expense, but I intend to seek reimbursement from Ford either through a recall or potentially through a small claims lawsuit.

Drivers side door ajar indicator continuously going off when door is shut. Continues to stay on after several attempts to shut door to make alarm go off. Makes it a driving distraction.. has been an ongoing issue and we just took it to the dealership to have repaired. Our extended warranty will not cover the problem and the dealership wanted over $500 to repair. We cannot afford the repair right now so we have to deal with it until we can. Again, a major driving distraction
