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.

The door ajar light comes on I N driver door almost everytime you shut the door no matter how hard you slam it. It takes several times for B the signal to go off. This a huge safety hazard. While driving the door ajar light will come on randomly and all the interior lights will come on making it hard to see at night. Also the doors will not lock if the door ajar signal is turned on. This is ridiculous and I am not happy. This is a newer vehicle and this should be recalled. The dealership wants 500 to fix this. When this is a manufacturer issue!

The door ajar light will come on along with interior light at random times. It happens when first entering the vehicle in the morning and also when driving at all times through the day. The only fix we've found is slamming the door shut a few times.

The driver door ajar light continues to come on. This results in continues alerts and beeps while driving and causes the interior lights to stay on when away from vehicle. No matter how hard I slam the door I continue to get a message that the door is ajar. This is a common problem among Ford Edge vehicles as described in many user forums online and should be recalled.

Driver door ajar sensor does not recognize that door is closed. This prevents all doors from being in the locked position while operating the vehicle. Manually locking the doors is overridden by the system and automatically unlocked. Annoying alarm always going off while driving or idle. Not known if sensor malfunction or door not actually closed properly. Should be recalled for repair.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 13,934 miles
While driving - even though the driver door is completely shut, the driver door ajar warning sign appears on the dashboard screen accompanied by the sound of a chime. Sometimes when you open and shut the driver door whether while still driving or if and when you find a side of the road space, the warning sign disappears. But oftentimes, it takes 3 or four tries to make it disappear. Sometimes the driver door ajar warning comes with an instruction to shift to P (park).... which is helpful if you can find a side of the road spot otherwise the instruction will just confuse a novice driver and could potentially create an accident. I search the internet and found this problem is very common with Ford Edge. I feel that this problem could potentially create an accident and warrants a recall.

No matter how hard you close the door on the drivers side of our Ford Edge. The door light keeps coming on and demanding you put the car park to shut the door. However the door takes for ever to register that it is closed and sometimes doesn't register.

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

Driver side door shows up on display as being open along with engine on message. I have to close the door anywhere from 2-5 times to get the door message gone. Also when I enter the vehicle after it's been parked the interior lights stay on and I have to start the car and shut it off to get them to go out.

Door ajar light and chimes will stay on even though the drivers door is obviously closed. No matter how hard you close the door it still does this. This problem also will not allow the doors to be locked while driving. That is a hazard ! also, when the car is parked, the head liner lights stay lit for 10 minutes until the computer defaults them to turn off. Because the sensor thinks the door is ajar. I do believe this is a hazard, do being able to lock the doors while driving is unacceptable:(
