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.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 58,000 miles


When the door is shut the door ajar light stays on, which then causes the interior light in the car to stay on. I have to open and sh*t the door multiple times to try and get they door ajar light to shut off so the doors can lock and I can drive.

In 2015 we took our Edge in to the shop because the door ajar indicator would still be on when the door was closed. This would not allow the doors to lock going down the road and would have an annoying message telling me to shift to park as I came up to a red light. They said that they could clean it and that should fix it but that would only be temporary and that they would probably eventually replace the switch. Again this month, July 2016, it has started again. The "shift to park" messages and not being able to lock the door and the interior lights stay on all happening again. From what I have read, even after they replace the switch, this doesn't completely fix the problem and that it will start to occur again after a few months. This needs to be a recall. The dealers are making a few 100 bucks from every person that shows up to get it "repaired". it is going off right now, as I type this, as my wife is driving and I am at work and she called me.

The door ajar switch is not working correctly, my interior and exterior lights stay on after I lock the doors, the door ajar chime rings the whole time I'm driving. This impedes visibility, attention, and could have adverse safety consequences.

Door ajar signal stays on when door is closed. Prevents driver from knowing of a real door ajar situation. Interior light stays on, creating a night driving hazard and when sitting in car at night. Doors no longer lock when vehicle is in motion. Major safety issue. Faulty latch or sensor. All issues stemming for faulty door latch or sensor. This has continued for several weeks.

Door ajar warning is present when door is closed. No matter how many times we close the door, the light stays on. We are able to both park and drive with this alarm on but the cabin lights stay on the entire time. We experienced the first issue in January 2015 and the Ford fuller dealership in chula vista, ca replace it because the car was under warranty. July 2016, the same warning was appearing on the dash board with the same issue. We took it back to the dealership where we purchased it, and had the first repair done, and they would not cover their faulty work. They stated that since our 3 year warranty had expired the issue would no longer be covered, regardless of the fact that they "fixed" the issue when it was under warranty and they guarantee their repairs for 2 years. We ended up having to replace our door latch again as well as a new battery for this issue. We hope a recall is made soon because this is getting out of control and pricey.

My door ajar light will not go off when I close the door. My car doors will not lock even manually which is a huge safety issue. My battery is also going to die due to the dome light never shutting off.

The driver door ajar is staying on even when the door is shut and verified to be shut all the way. The bell chimes and the interior lights stay on making driving the vehicle awkward and hazardous. The indicator stays on when the vehicle is in motion and stationary. This is listed as a common problem but yet Ford has done nothing about it. Cost to repair approximately $400.

The driver side door ajar light remains on even when the door is closed. The dealership notified me of the locking sensor/assembly being faulty and that I need to have this changed because the battery can drain. Repairs cost about $400 since I was 3,000 miles beyond of the warranty.

Driver side door ajar indication when door is secured closed. While car is in gear the "door ajar" indication along with the interior lighting illuminating. At times the indication does not come on until the door auto lock locks during driving. This is an intermittent problem but needs to be addressed by the Ford manufacturer. The random faulty indication takes driver's Focus and attention from driving to solve the problem.

The door ajar light comes on when the door is closed tight.(drivers door) this causes warning lights and sounds from dash display. The door overhead lights also come on. When stopping the warning system states "shift to park". constant ringing and display of this problem but the door is not ajar. Research of this problem on the internet shows a obvious problem with these door sensors. This is a safety hazard. Please force recall!

Purchased this vehicle March 29, 2016. Less than 2 months later the vehicle started randomly stalling and going into limp mode and I had to pull over on the busy DC highway with 2 small children in the back which was extremely dangerous. The check engine light and a wrench light came on but it cut off after a restart. Auto zone couldnt read the codes unless the car was malfunctioning at the time which happens randomly. Since the car is still within the powertrain warranty I took it to the Ford dealership and they diagnosed it as P2111 electric throttle body failure. The advisor agreed that this has been a common problem in Ford models and I read that a consumer safety program was started for other Ford models with the exact same problem. The advisor said it is not covered by the powertrain warranty and since there is no recall for this problem with Ford Edges I have to pay $800+ dollars to have it repaired. This is outrageous. Apparently someone has to lose their life before Ford issues a recall on this known issue. I hope the NHTSA steps in before something tragic happens! ive attached a picture showing the lights on the dash after about the 10th time the car stalled.

My rear drivers side door is closed and yet the door ajar warning stays on therefore my doors don't automatically lock when in motion. And when the key is pulled out of the ignition all the interior lights and the lights on my side mirrors stay on until I start the car again so they stay on for hours at a time, making every bulb very hot and draining my battery. I figured this was just more wear and tear but after looking into it it seems many other Edge owners are having the same exact issue.
