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.

Door ajar sensor is faulty, common problem among Ford Edges. Ford refuses to address issue according to all online sources. Door is constantly shown as ajar, leading to dead batteries and locking issues.

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.

A door open warning indication comes up and results in dome lights also staying on even when the driver's door is properly closed. Requires you to slam the door several times to get this warning to come off. Apparently this is a common issue with Ford Edge vehicles yet Ford has yet to issue a recall for this safety issue.

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 tells me that the drivers side door is open, when it is obviously closed. Interior lights stay on and doors will not lock until I slam the door several times. Very frustrating while driving to have the dash beeping at you

Door ajar warning message. Dome light stays on while driving and while parked. Necessary to open and close doors multiple times before lights go off and warning message goes away. Both when securing the vehicle, and prior to driving off. Problem most severe during cold temperatures. Standing outside the vehicle for 10-20 minutes in 19 degree weather trying to secure vehicle. Started happening from December 2015 to present.

The vehicle was operated at indicated 45 mph by owner on a standard two lane highway in a rural environment. Outside air temperature was 48 degrees F. lighting conditions were daylight and sunny. Without warning the vista sunroof exploded and shattered glass into the interior of the vehicle. There was no external force such as a projectile that caused the damage. All glass fractures were around each Edge at mounting locations. Similar cases have been reported and discussed on various forums. In each case, the damage occurs exactly the same way. This is most likely a manufacturing defect and should be considered very dangerous. Ford Motor Company needs to know about this and react before someone gets seriously hurt.

The drivers side door indicator continually says door is ajar when the car is in motion and parked even though the door is in fact shut. I have to slam the door several times to get the vehicle to recognize the door is in fact closed. Too many complaints on this issue to not have a recall.

My 2013 Ford Edge has an issue with the drivers side door closing. The door ajar light stays on even when the door is closed. When the car is off the interior light will stay on because of this issue, it takes slamming the door many times to trigger the lights to go off. Now it is at the point we are afraid it won't go off at all or we will damage the door, so we are entering the car through the passenger side in order not to set the issue off again. While driving the door ajar light stays on and I cannot lock my car doors. I heard via the web this is a common problem with the Ford Edge and other Ford models. My vehicle is only two years old and I have brought it back to the dealer to get fixed. They are replacing the door assembly and it is costing me about $400 but we cannot continue driving it in this condition. I believe this is a horrible design and there should be a recall and a better fix for this issue. At the rate this is happening I will need to have the door assembly replaced in another two years. I find this unacceptable!

The driver door ajar sensor stays on when the door is closed causing the interior lights to stay on and I am not able to lock the doors while in the vehicle. The false door ajar sensor prevents me from recognizing when there is a real ajar door situation. Also, the dome lights stay on at night causing a night driving hazard.

Door ajar sensor faulty. The panel shows that a door is ajar which is not. This causes the domelight to turn on for quite a long time. When it happens at night visibility is poor and dangerous. I have already replaced two sensor on one door (drivers side) now going on third (front passenger side) it becomes very dangerous since visibilty at is bad. This complaint is becoming pretty comun. A community of Ford customers that really neede help. Just hope it does not become a tragedy.

Driver door alarm beeps when door is closed. Interior lights stay on. This occurred earlier this year and Ford 'cleaned off' the sensor. Started to happen again several weeks ago. Ford is replacing the sensor, but we have to pay for this because the issue has not qualified for a recall. Please submit a complaint if this is happening to your 2013 Ford Edge.
