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.

Get driver door ajar alarm when driver door is closed, which keeps dome light on, won't allow doors to lock when driving, and when driving and go from stop to drive get alarm shift to park because it senses door is ajar. This has been repaired and repair lasted about 6 mo. Have to shut door several times before it senses door is closed and then on some occassions alarm will not go off at all.

Ca. passenger door says ajar after shutting door. Can open and shut over and over and sometimes it will go off, other times will not. Causes lights to stay on when vehicle is running and not running. Safety concern: The doors will not lock, leaving the back doors unlocked with small children able to open the door. Everytime the vehicle stops the annoying alert sensor signal keeps going off. There should be a recall on this, I see it is very common for this vehicle.

Door ajar warning indicator lights. Lights stay on and if you lock the door with key and walk away you have a dead batter they next day. Repeated shuting of door will some times will reset door ajar but it eventually fails completely and repeated slamming of door does nothing. Pulled fuse to interior lights to keep battery from dying.

The driver's side door sensor is not working. We have to slam the door several times for the door to close. Right now my husband has been in the garage for over 20 minutes trying to get the Edge to recognize that we shut the door. The vehicle is currently off and no keys in the car. You can also sit in the car and shut the door with the key in the ignition and it will not recognize that you have closed the door. The problem occurred last fall and was occasional, but has been consistent in the last month.

The door sensor does not register the door as being closed, I have taken the car to the Ford dealer several times, both while still under warranty and now no longer under warranty, and the problem recurs on both front doors. This is a well known flaw, with youtube videos on repair and service. Should be subject to a recall.

My driver side door ajar error message stays on when the key is on and when driving. This is a safety issue as I cannot reset it and a warning beep continues as the error cannot be cleared. Started a month ago and would randomly appear now it stays on. Also when I lock my car now with the remote it beeps twice not once. I feel there could be an issue with security now too.

Part of the dashboard will madly change on its own going though the different options like it's stuck; the navigation display and dash board when starting the car will not always light up like it used to do. There is a delay at times. The ambiant lighting nomatter how many times I choose pink it always defaults back to blue on its own. My car has begun to make a horrible noise under the carriage, we suspect it is a transmission issue. It feels like the vehicle struggles to move forward. Just the other evening after leaving work, my interior overhead lights would not go off. Nomatter how many times I tried to turn them off. The electrical issue with the dash board began a while back and the noise just recently. The mileage on my car is 36,000 more or less. This should not be happening to our car. Well taken care of, I drive it to work and back. The car just turned in August 2 years. I have an appointment at the dealership this coming Tuesday. I believe my car is still under the power train warranty, I pray that it is. Just today, my vehicle would not lock as well. I will update as soon as I take it to the service dept.
