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.

Driver door ajar warning light stays on when door is shut. Door locks will not lock upon movement of vehicle when light is on. When trying to lock the vehicle after turning off, interior and puddle lights stay on, draining battery. This has gotten progressively worse over the past six months.

The driver's door ajar light on the dash instrument cluster and the interior lights stay illuminated even when the door is completely shut. The door needs to be slammed several times before the light extinguishes, but sometimes will not go out at all. This leaves driver with an insecure feeling the car door is not securely closed while driving. This problem seems to be widespread on this model vehicle from what I read on the internet.

The sensor on the driver's door latch failed to detect that the door was closed in order to lock the doors. Need to slam door several times to attempt to activate sensor. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't work. Interior lights remain on while door is parked (draining battery) or while driving, which is a safety distraction at night. Doors do not lock and when trying to manually lock, the vehicle automatically unlocks all doors - very unsafe with children or elderly in vehicle. Ford warranty expires at the low mileage of 36,000 miles, so they will not fix without spending $450. The Ford warranty is very poor compared to all other vehicles. Updated 09/03/15

Driver door sensory light "door ajar." Door is always shut when it trips & even periodically while driving down road. It's been cleaned repeatedly, supposedly fixed at local Ford dealership once a few months back, & doing it again. Cleaning hasn't worked this round either.

The driver door ajar sensor keeps staying on even when the door is shut all the way. It takes several attempts of opening and closing the door to get it to go off. While the door ajar sensor is on you can not lock your doors which is a safety issue. Because of this manufacturers defect it is easy for anyone to open the door and be attached or car jacked. If you are not careful the light can stay on for hours and drain your battery. I am sure nothing will get done about this until someone is killed or attached because of this defect. Its a shame!!!

The driver's side door ajar warning/indicator light it near impossible to get it to switch off. If the warning light is on then the doors will not lock and the doors must lock so 'we' I can feel safe driving the Edge. It is not safe to drive around with the doors unlocked these days! it sometimes take many multiple slams of the door to get it to go off and the doom light to also turn off. Sometimes there is no way to get the warning light to turn off (so the doom light stays on), which kills the battery. There are many hundreds and hundreds of these complaints online, so please make Ford do the right think and correct their known problem! when the door does not latch the locks will not engage, an un-lached door is bad enough but not having a locked door at some red lights can be a literal killer or a literal mugging!

Door ajar warning light will not go off, even if door is closed. Online research shows that this problem has been ongoing for years with thousands of vehicles. Ford will not acknowledge problem. Cost to repair:$500 and eventually four doors:$2000. Interior lights do not go off causing problem at night.

The front driver side door ajar switch is malfunctioning. The door does not 'know' it is closed. Sometimes slamming it works, sometimes not. Did some online research and this is a very common issue and the fix is very expensive. Many mechanics think it should be recalled.

Edge

Door ajar signal stays on when door is closed which keeps the interior light on and prohibits the doors from locking while driving. This creates safety issues through the distraction of having the interior light constantly on and the doors not locking. Through online research, I've noticed that this is a very common problem for my type of vehicle and noticed that nothing has been done about it at this point.
