2010 Ford Edge Owner Comments

problem #12

  • 60,000 miles


I am reporting a very serious problem with the warning monitor sensor systems on my 2010 Ford Edge. As you may know there is a ¿door ajar sensor¿ notification system notifying the driver of a door being ajar. The problem is the sensor constantly fails when the door is not ajar or seems to not be ajar. There are several problems when there is the display one: ¿not sure doors are locked, especially when one is transporting children. ¿can not lock the car doors ¿ this is a major safety hazard with children in the car. Also, with the great increase in ¿car jackings¿, not being able to lock the doors makes the family very vulnerable. ¿next, the display leaves the interior lights on putting an unnecessary drain on the car electrical system. This could adversely safety of the other electrical systems causing a failure in traffic. ¿the warning message never times out and completely blocks the dashboard display preventing other warning messages or the system back up observation from working. Ford has known of this problem for several years and refuses to issue a recall in order to correct this safety problem.

The contact owns a 2010 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the trunk did not respond to the key fob. When the key fob was pressed, the trunk opened and closed repeatedly. Once the trunk was closed manually, the interior lighting in the vehicle remained illuminated, which drained the battery. The contact had to take the cables off of the battery at the end of each day to keep the battery from draining. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 91,967.

Door ajar warning light stays on, can't lock doors. Interior lights stay on all the time, hard to see at night when driving with the interior lights on. Had to replace battery due to light draining battery. Ford needs to address.

Vehicle was parked...went to start vehicle...bright light indicator was on dashboard, unable to move vehicle out of park unless manually done, when vehicle starts all indicators on instrument panel comes on, notices under the computer output on instrument panel indicates a host of problems, so basically the computer has failed to some nature causing errors to show. Hazards don't work, brake and turn signals don't work, but the vehicle will start at least until the battery is dead from the lights on the instrument panel run it out. Had this covered under warranty twice this is the third occurrence without determination of problem. Vehicle has to be towed to dealership for repair...I believe resetting the computer is the only option because diagnostics run do not indicate a known problem. My belief is that after 3 occurrences of this the common denominator is a strong electrical storm occurring prior to the computer failing. The vehicle has not been hit by lightning, but, there has been heavy strikes around or near the vehicle that upset the computer...jury is still out on my theory, but this is what I have observed.

Aug 192009


  • 10 miles
The contact owns a 2010 Ford Edge. While driving approximately 25 mph he was unable to view the speed odometer. Due to the design of the vehicle, the driver is only able to read the speedometer at night. The dealer and the manufacturer stated that they were unable to assist the contact since the vehicle was designed that way. The vehicle was purchased on August 19, 2009. The failure mileage was 10.
