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.

When shut, the door does not register as such. I have had to open/close it several times before the "door ajar" signal goes off. This issue has been progressively worsening, and now I believe the 'sensor' has completely failed. The door shuts, locks, and arms the alarm, yet the dome light and ajar symbol continue to stay on. Ford has told me this is a "wear and tear" issue that they will not cover! I have seen this issue affect many Ford models between 2001-2015 but more prominently when it comes to the Edge. I got the vehicle 08/2015 and this issue started occurring intermittently by 12/2015; now, this is occurring each time I have to open the driver door.

When closing my driver's side door, the door ajar light remains on and the chime goes off, and the dome light stays on, even after slamming the door multiple times. I took it to the dealership and they took the door panel off and "performed a high current cleaning of door ajar connections" at a cost of $154 + tax for me.

When turning into a drive way at low speeds the power steering gave out and the breaks and gas pedal were not responding and the low oil pressure to engine message came on the dash. I turned the car off and gave it a few minutes, and when I turned it back on and had it towed to a dealer they couldn't find any code nor could they replicate the problem after having for 3 days. I am worried if this happens again and at higher speeds like when on the highway. I have researched that Ford had similar issues with the throttle body on other models and years but not the 2013 Edge. This needs to be addressed.

The door latch on my driver's side door is not latching properly. The indicator light showing the door open appears and the interior dome light remains on. It will show this warning randomly, as well as anytime the driver's door is opened and shut.

The driver's side door gives off the warning that it is open when the door is closed. Checking online it looks like it is the door ajar switch which has been an ongoing problem with Ford and I believe they need to recall this issue

After closing the driver side door, the door ajar light comes on. The doors used to automatically lock as you put it in reverse/drive if all of the doors are closed properly, but the driver side door sensor tells the car door is ajar. This not only annoying to see the pop up, the interior lights stay on which is also a safety issue. Ford has received many complaints on this issue but is refusing to do a recall.

Door ajar comes on while the door is closed and you have the open and close the door more than 50 times for it to go off......Ford needs to redesign or replace sensors/ door lock mech. Especially not even being 2,000 miles after replacement and from what I've read online with other Ford Edge owners and other Ford vechical owners this is a very common problem

My Ford Edge 2013 is not turning off the overhead lights when I close the driver side door and when driving I get a warning stating that the door is ajar.sometimes after slamming the driver door two to three times it goes has become quiet annoying and dangerous when I drive since it becomes a constant distraction.I have gone to the dealer and they state that either the sensor or the latch have become faulty..really?...I think its about time for Ford to do a recall and correct this issue since I have talked to other Ford owners with the same exact issue in there offices.

Problem with driver door ajar sensor activating when door is closed. Was repaired under warranty, then problem recurred about 10 months later after vehicle warranty lapsed. Ford will not cover repairs now. Automatic door locks will not function with this sensor problem. Interior lights also stay on which reduces visibility.

"takata recall" I went to the dealer under warranty to have the driver door ajar fixed and requested a new door latch and was told Ford sent a tool to fix the problem which lasted 8 months unfortunately out of bumper to bumper. Called loveland Ford and was told Ford is being finicky about the problem and I need to pay for it out of pocket per the corporation really!!!!!!! the car dome light stays on and the computer module tells me to put in park and the door ajar will not go out. It happens randomly driving down the road and when I start the car. I slam the door 5-10 times I am not going to pay them for a car that was over 30K for a problem they covered up? shame on you Ford!,,,,,,,,,,

I just purchased my Ford Edge 2 weeks ago and the rear left door ajar light keeps coming on when the door is not open. I have stopped the car, open and closed the door but the light will still stay on. When we lock the doors at night, the alarm will go off several times in the middle of the night. Worried if the doors are even locking at this point. I called a Ford dealership and they said it was just a technical service bulletin and not a recall.
