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.

Instrument panel shows driver door ajar when door is not ajar. Door has to be opened and closed repeatedly until instrument panel no longer shows driver door ajar. This prevents the car from being properly locked. The door ajar light will randomly come on while driving, causing cabin lights to illuminate, which is especially hazardous when it is dark out. This is a serious issue with multiple Ford vehicles and must be addressed.

Get in, close door, start Ford Edge, ...drivers door ajar lights, warns, chimes and flashes put in park, drivers door open!! instantly unlocks _A_L_L_ doors and lights all interior up thus removing all safety of locked doors from unlawful and unsafe intrusion of others!!!! will not cancel or turn off. Furthermore entire time using Edge for reliable transportation is rendered useless----- while doors stay unlocked, can be open anytime! Ford Motor Company should do something quick before a horrible incident happens starting a flood of lawsuits for endangering the owners of Ford Edges!!

The central computer indicates that the driver's seat door is open when it is in fact fully closed. It stays that way, no matter how many times you close the door.

The mytouch feature panel occassionally locks up/freezes when trying to access any of the features. Ambient lighting color changes randomly. Lastly, the volume/road volume adjustment does not work and did prior to sync update.

After closing the door then starting the vehicle the "door ajar" will not go off which notifies the driver to put the vehicle in park. I think this is a safety issue as the vehicle may not protect the driver and passengers in the event an accident occurs. I also noticed that when turning the vehicle off to get gas or etcetera, it keeps notifying you to put the vehicle in park. I think this is directly related to the door latch being faulty. Ford wants $400 to repair this item which I think is a safety issue and should be recalled as many Edge owners are experiencing the same faults.

This is the issue of door ajar light staying 'on' for the driver side front door. The door ajar light stays 'on' even though the door is properly shut. It was started as an intermittent issue but now the warning stays 'on' all the time and the instrument cluster shows the front driver side door stays open all the time. Every time I stop, the warning for door ajar comes on. I am not sure if this is a safety issue or not but initially every time the warning sounds, I used to look at instrument panel for what the warning is about but now I have started to ignore it. I hope I don't ignore any other important warnings that are related to safety.

The driver door says its ajar but actually is not, so if driving at night the dome lights are on witch is dangerous and the door locks will not lock if the vehicle system thinks it ajar. I think this should be recalled cause it is a safety issue #1 doors won't lock. #2 interior light won't go out if driving at night.

My door ajar light continues to come on. I shut the door multiple times and sometimes it turns off and some times it doesn't. I think the lock or latch on the door is faulty.

Door ajar sensor indicates door is ajar when it clearly is not. This makes locking the doors impossible and causes the interior dome lights to illuminate. Car is less than 2 years old. Apparently, this is a problem with the switch assembly across numerous Ford vehicles.

The " driver door ajar" warning light remains on constantly. Being a senior citizen, I'm concerned about being car jacked when stopped because the door locks will not automatically activate when the warning light is on. Also, the interior lights remain on for a period of time which can alert a car jacker. The Ford dealer estimate to repair the latch sensor is $470.

The driver side door becomes ajar even when shut and you have to open and shut the door numerous times to have the alert go away. The dome lights stay on and at night this not safe. Also, every time you start to accelerate the car beeps and tells you to put the car in park, which is a distraction. Also this prevents the doors from locking while the vehicle is in motion and causes the interior lights to remain on in the vehicle when parked. If continue to drive while door ajar lamp is illuminated the alert will also chime every time I start from a complete stop which very distracting.

I have been having issues with the driver's "door ajar" being on constantly. The door is clearly shut; however, there is a constant beeping warning that the door is open. Due to this warning, the car will not allow for the doors to be locked when the car is in motion. This is a major concern having two young children. In addition to the safety issue mentioned above, the dome light is now delayed from turning off upon exiting the vehicle. Took this into the dealership and they wanted $500 to fix. This past weekend, I am now receiving a warning that my liftgate is open as well. I had no success after attempting to close the liftgate multiple times. This lock mechanism seems to have a clear issue which Ford is hesitant to address. I really hope they get this fixed asap or I will not be purchasing Ford products again.

The driver's door sensors intermittently have a "door ajar" warning, though each door is completely shut. The sensor is inside the latch, and has a very high failure rate, based on cursory internet research. The warning can occur while driving, and/or applying brakes. It alerts the driver to put the car in park. The doors will not lock (while driving) when the "door ajar" sensor light it on. This is a safety issue.

  • 42,600 miles
Upon closing the drivers door, the cabin lights remained on and the 'door ajar' indicator lamp was illuminated on the dash. After repeated opening and closing of the door, the problem went away. This problem keeps happening once or twice a week. One time the problem occurred while driving at night, the cabin lights came on and startled me. This could have caused an accident due to sudden reduced visibility. I did some research and it is a common problem that Ford knows about because they have a technical service bulletin on it, tsb# 14-0083. The repair consisted of removing the inner door panel and cleaning the actuator switch. The warranty on this car has expired, so the repair cost me $164. I think Ford should have paid for this in full. Why is this not on a recall?

Faulty sensor in driver's-side door? sensor shows the driver's door is ajar when it is closed, but the alert goes off the entire time you're driving which is a hazard & distraction.

The driver door almost always reports that it is ajar despite the fact that it is closed. It will occasionally stop reporting the problem if I repeatedly open and close the door. This prevents the doors from locking while the vehicle is in motion and causes the interior lights to remain on in the vehicle when parked for about 10 minutes. The alert will also chime every time I start from a complete stop which is very distracting.
