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 door agar sensor is not going off when I shut the door I keep having to slam the door shut multiple times for it to turn off. When I get out of my car the door does not always latch and you can tell when you lock it. The door ajar signal stays on when I shut my door. The dome light stays on when I get out of my car telling me that it is still open and when I try to lock it it makes a double beep so its like its not locking my car.

Door ajar switch is malfunctioning. The car will randomly say the drivers door is ajar. This typically happened when getting in and out of the car. Today it said the door was ajar randomly while driving.

Door ajar alert on dash board remains lit. This causes the interior dome lights to remain on, the car to "think" the doors are not all closed, and issues with locking the car doors. Very dangerous because at night the dome lights remain on. There is no way to get the lights to turn off until they automatically dim after approximately 3 minutes of active driving. Dome lights will always remain on when in reverse. Seems to be a guaranteed problem in all Ford Edge's, very frustrating. Hoping this helps to get a recall as it's quite costly to get repaired.

My 2013 Ford Edge sport with approx 13,500 miles has been doing this now for about 2 plus months. When you shift into park and then turn car off, it will beep and say on dash, "shift to park". the car is in park. If you get out of the car, you won't be able to lock the doors. The only way to make it stop is to start car again, put in drive and then almost slam the shifter into park again. Sometimes it will take 2 or 3 times before it won't do this. I have double checked to make sure there isn't anything in the way and there is not. Very frustrating. Of course it doesn't do this every time, so I have it on video. Grrrr!!

I have a 2013 Ford Edge and the driver side door sensor will not recognize when the door is closed. I looked around on the internet and this seems to be a fairly common problem among Ford Edges. It is not only annoying, but if you aren't careful to check, it can drain your battery as well because the dome light will remain on as the vehicle thinks the car door is ajar. So far Ford isn't replacing this under any sort of warranty.

The door ajar alarm sounds when the driver door is shut. At first I could open and close the door (sometimes numerous times) and it would go off. Now it stays on all the time. The doors will not lock and the overhead light comes on sometimes. I feel this is a safety hazard that Ford should recall and repair.

Door ajar signal stays on when door is closed which keeps the interior light on and prohibits the doors from locking while driving. This creates safety issues through the distraction of having the interior light constantly on and the doors not locking. Through online research, I've noticed that this is a very common problem for my type of vehicle and noticed that nothing has been done about it at this point.

The driver side door can be closed and light will come on saying door ajar even if the door is shut. This makes me stop the car and close door again.

The driver door ajar alarm started going off, and the doors unlocked while the car was moving on the interstate. It has now happened several times both while driving down the road and when getting in the vehicle. Now, the dome light and outside marker lights remain on and drain the battery when the vehicle is in park because the sensor isn't reading that the doors are closed.

Driver side door ajar censor is bad. Ford has known of the problem for a long time. When you shut the driver side door the dash light indicates the door is still open so you close it again and again and again. Ive googled it and Ford knows about it but I guess they rather you spend 500 dollars to get it fixed then do a recall. It happens all the time shutting the door and reshutting the door over and over to get the light to go out and to get it to stop dinging ive read all the complaints on line and still Ford does nothing why dont they have to tell you this problem before you buy the vehicle isnt that fraud. If you know of a problem you have to disclose it. You do when youre selling and buying a house!!!!

problem #10

Door latch switch will not recognize that the door is shut. I took it in for warranty and Ford sprayed it with lub. And said it would fine. Because of it everytime you brake there is a chime. You cannot lock the doors the pop open again. Dome lights will not go off and battery in car will go dead if you leave the keys in the ignition. I am concerned that the airbags will not deploy in an accident. I think that this needs further investigation on Ford behalf. It is a distraction during driving and also a safety concern the doors will not lock when I have kids in the car. I tried to have it repaired and the repair failed.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 61,000 miles
When I close the drivers door, the interior lights will not shut off and the warning light saying the door is open comes on. I've even had instances where the door will be closed, I start driving down the road and then the light will come on saying the door isn't latched. Most of the time, it takes over 10 times of opening and closing the door before it will latch and the lights will turn off. And it is steadily getting worse. The door is clearly shut...but the sensor thinks the door is still open.
