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.

Door ajar light remained lit on dashboard as well as interior lights illuminated. Happened sometimes once door was shut and vehicle still in park causing me to have to try multiple times to get sensor to register properly and would happen sometimes shortly after taking off and getting up to speed on city streets, or shortly after I would get up to 10 mph causing the auto lock feature to activate and door ajar light would illuminate. Also was able to get sensor to register door would be shut and I would climb out the passenger side door and back in later, not opening driver door afterwards and would get door ajar light when vehicle was started. Taken to dealership for repairs and was told it was determined to be caused by faulty instrument cluster. Dealer replaced cluster and still had issue with door ajar remaining lit shortly after getting back home.

The "door ajar" warning light and bell stays on after the door is shut. This happened on my Edge in January 2015. I took it to the Ford dealer, and first they adjusted the door latch. That only lasted a couple of months. When I took it back, the dealer said that Ford told them the latch would have to be replaced. The bill to replace the latch was $132.08, which I paid. That fixed my problem. I saw on the news today that this is a problem you are investigating, and I wanted you to know my situation.

Door ajar light for drivers door will intermittently stay on when door is closed. As a result the overhead lights go on obstructing drivers vision at night. Additionally it is impossible to lock the doors when this condition exists. When driving an irritating message comes on saying to shift to park and close door which are already closed. This appears to be a bad design flaw which creates a dangerous situation for occupants of the vehicle. The dealerships charge somewhere in the neighborhood of $450 to replace assembly which in some cases still does not correct the problem. This is a safety issue that Ford needs to address in a recall.

The car is at 50,000 and the drivers side door ajar signals the door is open and it is not. This is a safety issue because the doors do not automatically lock as they should. Also, it causes the dome lights to stay on and other sensors to come on when the car is at a stop light or stop sign. Due to this being an issue read about widely Ford should issue a recall to fix this.

The door ajar light was continuing to turn on, even while driving, creating an unsafe driving situation as all the interior lights come on and will not turn off until you pull over, put the car in park, open the door, push in the door latch, and then shut it again and again until the door ajar comes off. I had this fixed at while still under warranty. It started doing this again less than 6 months later. I was then informed that the drivers door latch is faulty and the switch inside is causing the light to stay on. It is recommended to replace the lf door latch at $445. It was "cleaned" according to the service gentlemen, but not replaced in January when it was still under warranty. He said it will do the same thing it currently is in about 6 months if they just clean it again and not replace it. It is a hazard while driving and a huge safety concern. I am unsure why it would not have been replaced originally. I assumed when I took it in it had been fixed and replaced, not just cleaned.

The driver side door ajar sensor fails to detect that the door is closed and latched. This causes the automatic door locks to unlock the doors even when the vehicle is in motion. This can be a safety issue in the event of a collision.
