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 ajar sensor on driver's door has failed 3 times. The first time was the day we purchased the vehicle. The dealership fixed it. The next time was in February. Now it has failed again. After you enter the vehicle, and shut the door the sensor still reads as the door is open. The doors will not lock the interior lights will not go out, and who knows what else isn't activated.

Driver's side door sensor indicates door ajar, preventing other functions of the vehicle from operating normally, such as dome light turning off while driving and after locking doors, doors will not remain locked while driving and other related functions. Issues causes a drain on the battery until it eventually loses charge, leaving driver stranded. Door ajar indicator remains on the entire time during operation of the vehicle.

Drivers side door ajar light stays on all the time along with the shift to park and engine on messages. Automatic locks dont work anymore. The radio sometimes blanks completelt out. Taking it to the garge for the third time. Other people have posted online with the same problems and Ford will not issue a recall or fix the problem properly.

The car always says the drivers side door is ajar and the shift to park message shows up on the dash along with the engine on message. None of these messages go away. Its always dinging because it thinks the door is open and the automatic locks dont work. This will be the third time I take this to the garage for the same thing. I understand alot of people have the same problem with this car and Ford will not issue a recall or fix the problem properly.

The door sensor is not working correctly. The car continues to indicate "door ajar" all the time. The dome light will not turn off now when I am driving at night and the interior car lights come on at night which is draining my battery. I had to replace the battery since it had died yesterday.

Driver side door will shut, but inside will show "ajar" with all dome lights on. After numerous times (20+) of opening and closing the door, it will sometimes finally close to stop showing ajar and lights will turn off. In my opinion, this is a safety hazard if driving at night as I've experienced already once with my door not willing to close properly at night, and having to drive with all dome lights on (huge issue). Went to a Ford dealer that says they will run a diagnostics test to see what's wrong, but there are hundreds if not thousands of complaints already on-line of people having the same issue and this still hasn't been addressed by Ford for a recall. Many are saying the costs are from $250-$500 for repairs to get it fixed. For a 2 year old car, this should not be happening!

The front door lock sensor doesn't work. When the door is shut the sensor doesn't sense that the door is shut, causing the notice to direct user to shift car in park to shut door, when it's already shut.

Driver door ajar warning light stays on when door is shut. Door locks will not lock upon movement of vehicle when light is on. When trying to lock the vehicle after turning off, interior and puddle lights stay on, draining battery. This has gotten progressively worse over the past six months.

The driver's door ajar light on the dash instrument cluster and the interior lights stay illuminated even when the door is completely shut. The door needs to be slammed several times before the light extinguishes, but sometimes will not go out at all. This leaves driver with an insecure feeling the car door is not securely closed while driving. This problem seems to be widespread on this model vehicle from what I read on the internet.

Second time I will be taking my car in for service: Driver side door ajar keeps coming on again. You have to slam the door hard to get it to shut off. It happens even when some one is exiting the passenger door and the driverside door ajar message will show up. Engine on message also shows up. You can click the ok for both messages but the doors don't autolock when you drive. Also the dome lights inside the vehicle takes a long time to shut off. The headlights will shut off when you shut off the car but the inside lights stays on. Sometimes I will turn the car back on so they shut off.

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.

  • 13,500 miles
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.
