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 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.

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.

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.

The driver side door shows it is ajar when the door is closed. This will not allow the doors to be locked while driving. Also the interior lights will not turn off. This a major safety hazard both during the day and night. Reading online a number of complaints have been made dating back to the 2011 models. there dozens of posts online regarding this same problem but yet no recall to date

Door ajar light stays on even when door is closed. This keeps dome lights on and side mirror lights along with the doors not locking which is a secure/safety issue. Also the fact that the dome light can blind the driver at night and this runs the battery down. Ford dealerships say its a known defect for new and used vehicles and I opened up a case with Ford and they refuse to offset the costs to fix it. They just say keep your receipt in case they ever do a recall. There is a petition on line because it affects so many people. Ford needs to address this to avoid lawsuits! its a burden to consumers because the cost to fix is over $500 at a dealership. This happens when stationary and in motion. My wife and baby almost ran off the road because the light won't go off at night and blinds her view. Plus it has left her stranded at work with a dead battery. See link for details. Https://

Driver door ajar light stays on even when the door is shut!interior dome lights stay on and it tells you to shift the car to park. Does not matter how many times you shut the door it is still sensing it is open. I have to shut the door mulitple times and use the key fob until the lights go off so the battery does not run down. You can shut the door and finally get it to turn off, then start driving and it will tell you to shift to park that the door is ajar and the dome lights come on. The estimate from the dealer to repair is $500. This is a major safety concern because my door will not lock while it is showing its ajar and I have children in the back seat that could open it, it is very distracting, frustrating and when it happens at night my lights will not go off and you can not see clearly. I have seen so many complaints regarding this and is very disappointed that Ford is not concerned as well!!!!

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.

Ford Edge 2013 error code "door ajar" would randomly come on while parked or driving when the door was actually closed. Door would have to be repeatedly closed in order to make the "door ajar" error go away. "door ajar" error would come back even if the door was closed successfully without the error before. While driving, "door ajar" warning would sound off triggering dashboard lights which would startle the driver and cause a safety hazard. When the car was parked, "door ajar" error would prevent lights in the vehicle from turning off. "door ajar" error would prevent the doors from being locked via remote or lock button in the car.

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)

My driver door ajar light stays on and will not lock the doors even though it is clearly shut completely. This allows the dome light to remain on also. After several times of opening and shutting it finally registers that it is closed. Had my mechanic look at it he cleaned it and lubed it which cleared it for a day but is doing it again. Looks like it needs a whole new door latch. I have found many complaints about this same issue but no recall from Ford. This has been happening for approx. 1 month but has gotten progressively worse.

  • 54,500 miles
The vehicle was purchased new in Dec. 2013 and as of today has 54,500 miles on it. As of today it has now gone through 2 headlight bulbs, one for each side. The first was Jan. 2016 and the second yesterday. I believe there is a defect in the way the headlight high/low beam system is made in the Edge. A single bulb is used for both high and low beam. When the driver switches to high beam the entire bulb socked or light housing is commanded up. This is noticeable inside the vehicle with a loud bump from the headlight area. I believe the force of this movement contributes to the shortened life of the bulbs. If driving at night it's possible both bulbs could be broken when switching from low to high beam. Should this occur at night it could lead to a vehicle crash due to loss of visibility, possibly resulting in injury or death.
