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.

  • 31,000 miles


My car, Ford Edge 2013 has a problem with the driver door sensor which shows that the door is not closed causing the alarm bell to stay on, the interior lights won't turn off, had to have a jump start. Took to Ford dealer and was charged for repair. Quite expensive for me to pay for what Ford should be paying for. I understand that are quite a large number of owners with the same problem. Also smell exhaust fumes when shutting shutting off the engine as I get out of the car. Coming from engine compartment. Understand this is also a problem for other owners. These factors together should be reason for the NHTSA to get involved and force a recall to review our groups problems. I paid $229 to clean contacts. New parts much more expensive. Help us with this.

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the "door ajar" indicator illuminated when the doors were closed. When the contact managed to get the "door ajar" indicator to go off, it came back on while driving. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The VIN and failure mileage were unknown.

I have owned this vehicle for less than a year and 2 months after purchasing it the door ajar light came on. It comes on everytime I start the car. A message appears saying to put the car in park and shut the door, I have done this numerous times to no avail. I have tired driving forward and opening the door then shutting it while still driving forward slowly (sometimes this will work temporarily) and I have also tired doing the same in reverse. I have called Ford and been told to take it to a Ford dealership for a diagnostic test. The test is going to cost $120 plus tax then the parts and labor so I'm looking at a cost of $500 or more! Ford knows this vehicle has this issue, so why don't they do a recall. I live in a rural area where we have bear and mountain lions and I stand outside for 10 minutes or more waiting for the interior lights to go off, when they still don't, I around the car and open and close all the doors again and wait some more. (as a women I truly am nervous while I'm out there) not to mention having to drive at night hoping I won't get a ticket because the interior lights stay on. No wonder why consumers get mad and don't want to buy american made products anymore. Come on Ford make the recall happen already!!!!!

Edge 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


Suddenly the vehicle no longer registered one of the doors as being closed. It always had the door ajar warning on the screen and the dome lights stayed on and doors wouldn't lock while driving as if a door was open. This made it difficult to drive at night because all the lights would be on in the car. Also, my 4 year old was able to reach and open the door while the car was in motion so I had to take the car into the dealership to have it fixed immediately before one of my children was hurt. The car only has approximately 40,000 miles on it and is well cared for but out of warranty so the repair cost us 474$ and I was out of a vehicle for two days.

Door ajar indicator stays on even though door is correctly closed. My 2013 Edge has less than 38000 miles. But Ford will not fix without owner paying for it. This is not the first 2013 Edge with this problem and Ford should fix without owner's cost

My 2013 Ford Edge has a mechanical/electric door jar switch which fails thus you end up with a 'door ajar' warning on your dash. Thus you can't lock your doors and the light and radio remain on after to exit the vehicle.

After approximately 60,000 miles the drivers side door will not lock and the "door ajar' warning light and alarm will sound continually. The vehicle can be driven, but only in an unlocked condition while listening to the warning chimes and flashing dash lights. The condition often lasts a week or so, goes away for some time and then returns.

Two problems:1) door ajar light stays on - door has to be slammed several times before light goes out, sometimes light stays on for entire 15 mile drive to work. Problem 2) shift to park light comes on- car is in park, must jam shifter forward to get light to go off. Sometime must put car into drive, move forward few feet and back to park. Both problems are intermittent but happens 8 of 10 times we drive the vehicle.

The driver side door is always reported as ajar. The doors cannot be locked while driving, if you manually lock them they are immediately unlocked. The interior lights will sometimes stay on which makes driving at night difficult. If you leave the key in the ignition after parking, like in the garage, it will run down the battery.

Door ajar sensor is defective. The drivers door continues to tell me it is open even after repeatedly opening and firmly closing the door. The inside lights stay on, which is a safety issue at night, and the doors won't lock. I spoke to Ford and they want to charge me 500 for the part.

Door ajar warning light stays on even after door is closed. Interior lights stay on even after door is closed. Door sensor issue. Almost wrecked when interior lights came on while driving-the door sensor light came on without the door being opened. We took the vehicle to the Ford dealer and they said they could not find the issue.

In April 2014 at 20,000 miles door ajar light remained on while driving vehicle. Was repaired by dealer under warranty in April 2014. In September 2016 at 47,000 miles the door ajar light is back on again. Dealer says it is not covered under warranty and wants to charge for diagnostic and repair. Obviously the original repair performed under warranty did not fix the issue and this car is defective. I have safety concerns whether door is actually closed while driving.
