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.

My 2013 Ford Edge door latch incorrectly reports that the door is open when it is not. This turns the interior lights on and drains the battery, also will not let you turn on the alarm or lock the doors from the inside. Constantly chimes and tell you to put in park to shut door.

When you close the driver side door the instrument panel gives a false warning saying the door is ajar and the dome light stays on. This happens when the car is stationary. After several attempts of opening and closing the door the warning disappears, but then while the car is moving the warning returns and the dome light comes back on and the doors unlock. This seems to be a pretty common problem and my car currently has 48,000 miles on it. This warning issue has been going on for about 1 month.

My door sensor on the driver side passenger door light stays on when the door is completely shut. So the dome light stays on. Also when you are driviing the doors don't lock. I just purchased this vehicle this past October. It was good for about 2 weeks then the door sensor started going on and off. Now it is staying on all the time.

The driver door sensor (when the door is shut tightly and secured) keeps turning interior lights on while driving in the dark! this is a safety issue. Guess what else happens" my doors will not lock because of this sensor. That is another safety issue on the opposite side of the safety spectrum. If this occurs both driving and while car is not in motion, how does Ford value the safety of their customers" hopefully by taking that this should be recalled and make their customers happy. This is disappointing, as well as frustrating because it is happening every single day.

Sensor on the rear driver's side door is defective, causing the doors not to lock, and the interior lights not to go off when it is locked. This ultimately drained the battery and left my wife stranded.

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. The contact stated that an unknown front door latching mechanism failed to properly register that the vehicle door was closed. As a result, an internal warning message informing the contact to put the vehicle in park and close the door displayed. In addition, the contact stated that the warning message chimed until the vehicle was placed into the park position. The contact further stated that when the vehicle was stopped and turned off, the interior light failed to function properly and shut off causing the battery to be drained. The vehicle was taken to be diagnosed where the contact was informed that the door lock mechanism needed to be replaced. It was unknown if the vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the issue. The failure mileage was 55,000.

When taking a left or right turn onto another road, there is absolutely no illumination to the side during the actual turn until completed on rural roads with no lighting. The experience is like turning into a black hole until front wheels are back straight. Road sides with adjacent ditches or anything in the road like people or animals will not be seen, a very dangerous situation. Low beam illumination is not that good under normal circumstances; it like driving with two very narrow beam fixed flashlights. Last week I almost missed a turn on an unfamiliar road by just missing running into a ditch close to the roadside at its' intersection.

Dome lights, ajar light other dash board lights stay on when I get out of the car. I can lock or not and they will stay on and drain my battery. I sometimes take 5 minutes opening and closing doors and locking/unlocking vehicle before it will go off. Also while traveling the dome lights will come on and at night I have to stop or have a wreck. Very dangerous situation why hasn't Ford done something about this. Will never buy a Ford product again especially when they will not recognize the problem with a recall

The door latch sensor does not work. As I am driving it detaches and signals to the car that the door is ajar while it is not. This cause the doors to unlock and the lights to turn on. While I am driving it becomes dangerous because the doors are not locked. Also, as one is driving and the lights turn on unexpectedly it could affect ones vision. Its seems it is a defect in door that is damaging the part. Many have had them replaced and after a while becomes defective once again.

I was driving my friend and her 9yr old to the store, my door lock sensor was not working and said door ajar so I was unable to lock the doors in drive I tried and they whould just unlock. My friends child was able to open the door while I was going 45mph she could have fell out. This door ajar problem has been happening off. The dome light stays on and im unable to lock the doors. I just bought the car used so its not under warranty. It is a huge saftey issue and I guess after reading the hundreds of complaints about the same issue that nothing is going to be done untill there is a death instead of trying to avoid one. Also I heard the police version of the Explorer had a similar problem and Ford recalled it right away why not the consumer it seems like they dont care about the consumers safety. Please help before someone actully gets hurt.
