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.

The "door ajar" light comes on all of the time which doesn't allow to lock the door and keeps the lights on which drains the battery. I have to take it to the dealer for repair ($500)

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!

Safety issue when driving car since you cannot lock doors children in back can open door.. dealer repaired at a cost of $ 305. This should have had a safety recall by Ford

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.

The faulty door closed switch and/or design is indicating the drivers side door is open when it is not. This issue is causing all the doors to remain unlocked while driving or unlock during driving if it goes off. This problem has been addressed by the Ford dealership twice and now it is out of warranty they do not want to fix it. It needs to be recalled.

Door ajar light won't go off when you close the door. It's been to the dealer twice and they don't do anything about it. Seems like a widespread problem amongst all Ford Edge products.

The driver side latch and door ajar sensor are defective. The car does not properly register that the door is closed. This forces the door ajar light and sound to repeatedly go off. This also keeps the dome light on when shutting the door thus killing the battery. Also, you are not able to lock the doors and this is a safety issue with kids and with items in the car being stolen.

My 2013 Ford Edge vehicle door ajar light came on about a week ago. I can not get the door ajar light to shut off. It does not matter how hard or soft is shut it, it will stay on. I drive 20 miles to work everyday. It is a big safety hazard. When I do get it to shut off, while driving it will pop back on.. then my interior lights come and I have a hard time getting them off. I have 2 kids and this is a big safety issue for me. I see multiple complaints about this issue but no recall. The locks will lot lock with this light on. Like I said before I have kids and this is a big concern for me.

Less than 24 hours after I purchased this certified used vehicle from a Ford dealer, driver's door ajar warning appears while vehicle is in motion even though door is firmly latched. All doors instantly automatically unlock while driving. Doors cannot be re-locked because they immediately unlock again. This represents an accident hazard because it allows occupants to potentially be thrown from the vehicle in the event of a collision. This condition is apparently due to a faulty door latch switch and is well documented by hundreds of complaints on the internet.

Driver side door ajar issue- when the door is closed the door ajar light will come on while driving or while parked. The interior lights will stay on even while driving at night. The door locks will also not stay locked. This will happen whether driving on the highway or in the city. Every time you drive the car this will happen. When the car is turned off and parked the interior lights will stay on. I have to open and close the door several times in order for the lights to finally shut off.
