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.

My door ajar indicator will not stop alerting me that my door is open regarless of the doors staet closed or not. So now when driving my interior over head lights will not go off even at night impairing my vision. Ford dealer ship refuses to fix this problem I only have 35000 miles on the vehicle and this is the second time I have taken it in for this same failure. The first time they fixed it and it lasted about a year now they refuse to fix it. Not only do I have to disconnect my battery at night or the lights wear it down but now that my interior lights stay on at night it makes it hard to see the traffic around me.

The driver door ajar light comes on and the shift to park warning comes on the bells dings and all inside lights stay on.whether the car is on or not, the lights stay on. I've had to replace my battery because the lights won't shut off. I cannot open and close the door to get the warning to go off. Also the dash lights an overhead lights will come on when no one has even been in the car it's making me crazy!! I called Ford customer service ad the told me to try to get my third party warranty to cover the repairs.this is all bull crap, Ford needs to recall and repair everyone's problem.

  • 52,000 miles
The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the door ajar light was illuminated and the interior lighting remained illuminated. It was difficult for the contact to lock the doors while the lights were illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer to be diagnosed, but the results were unknown. The mechanic sprayed compressed air in between the door contacts, which remedied the issue temporarily. The failure recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of failure. The approximate failure mileage was 52,000.

Driver door ajar light would not go off, even though the door seemed to be closed. Thus doors would not lock and occasionally warning lights would flash, distracting me as I drove. I took the car to my local Ford dealer and was told it was a faulty front door latch, which they replaced for $425.65. See #2 on the attached.

problem #328

  • 23,000 miles
The door ajar indicator remains lit even when door is properly secured. This results in the interior lighting remaining on and failure of the door locks to properly activate, even at highway speed. I am a former investigator for the U.S. dot and I find this to be a very dangerous situation which should be recalled. If the doors are not properly locked there is an increased risk to occupants of the vehicle in the event of a crash.

The door latch sensor doesn't seem to be working. The door is closed but is says it's not. I can not lock the doors and my overhead lights stay on and the battery will die. I've taken it into the dealership before and they say the sensors are dirty and they cleaned them, but it didn't fix the problem. It happens at all times (stationary or moving)

problem #324

  • 56,000 miles
Drivers side door ajar warning indicator will not shut off. The interior dome light stays on until approx moving 5mph. A few times the light came back on when stopped at a red light or stop sign. The doors will not stay locked, as the system thinks the door is open. After stopping and exiting the vehicle, you are unable to lock the door using the key less entry keypad. The only way to lock the doors is to use the key fob. This was an intermittent problem, now the warning light stays on all the time.
