Door ajar light stays on, acts as if drivers door isn't closed. Also prevents us from locking vehicle up when we leave it. Started with only driver door. Now is rear drivers side door also. Concerned about safety of family and our valuables with this issue that shouldn't be happening.

Purchased my 2011 Ford Edge in June/July of 2014 for jc lewis Ford in savannah, ga. Turns out there was an "extended warranty" in place because the brake booster's in this car have been failing. I'm not sure why they would have sold me a car without completing a repair or informing me of the possibility of malfunction. About a month ago, I was driving down the interstate at about 65 mph when I was cut off by another vehicle. When I went to tap the brakes to disengage the cruise control, nothing happened! I had to press the brakes about halfway down to get the cruise control to disengage and, even then, it felt like I did not have power brakes.

Driver's door sensor is bad. Vehicle does not recognize that the driver's door is closed and will not lock or automatically turn off interior lights. At night, I have to back out of a long driveway only being able to use the backup camera. Once in forward motion, the light will eventually turn off but the driver's door will not lock. What is to prevent someone from walking up to and opening my car door while stopped at a traffic light?? on one occasion, the door ajar icon did not come on when starting the car but came on about 8 miles down the road. Also, when you park the car and lock it, it still does not recognize that the door is shut and does not automatically turn the lights off again. The Ford dealership wants around $600 to fix this issue, I paid them $65 to "clean the sensor" because the guy said that it might correct the issue or at least hold it off a while. I picked the car back up 3 days ago and now that door ajar light is on all the time. Before, I could at least open and close the door about 3-4 times and the light would go off.

The driver side door sensor is bad. The vehicle is unsafe because the sensor remains on all the time even when the door is closed. So if the door is ever open, you would not know because all the sensors are bad so you assume it is just an error message. Also - on this vehicle - the brakes feel spongy at times and are not good, even though having the brakes looked at and they have checked as confirmed sound with new rotors and pads.

Door ajar light stays on all the time, this cause the doors to not be able to lock, the interior light stays on for an extended period of time. When the interior lights stay on at night it makes driving difficult at times. The interior lights staying on in the winter time have also made it drain the battery down so vehicle has to be jump started.

Door ajar light remains on-vehicle will not lock while in motion-interior lights will not turn off while parked-electrical components drain battery as if the door remains open at all times even when the door is closed-needs to be recalled and fixed for Ford owners as this is not the only Ford vehicle with this problem-Ford needs to stand behind their product and step

I was on my way to work on 9/2/16 making a left hand turn when I loss acceleration. The car was still running but I had no gas pedal. I was able to limp to the side of the road, thank god I did not get rear ended. The panel showed a wrench. I was towed to a shop and they cleaned the throttle body and said I should be good to go. Well yesterday got up to go to the grocery store and the same thing happened, no acceleration. It took me 20 mins to get around the block and back into my garage. My car only has appx. 40,000 miles and I feel it is unsafe to drive. Upon researching this problem I am not the only one having this problem. As you can see hear www.carcomplaints.com/Ford/Edge/2011/engine/loses_power_wrench_light_on.shtml. I feel like Ford's is waiting for someone to get hurt or worse to address this issue. Any help you may offer would be appreciated.

Door latch and door ajar light issues. When the door is closed, the door ajar warning light remains on. This causes several safety issues. It will not allow for the door to lock. The dome lights remain on whether the vehicle is parked or driving. The domes lights remaining on will also drain the car battery. It has been repaired by the dealer two times prior, but the repair doesn't last long. This is a major issue for the vehicle.

Two door ajar lights on our 2011 Edge remain on at all times. Bea aide of this I am forced to drive at night with the interior lights on. This is unsafe and very distracting for us and other drivers. One of these doors is my daughters which we are very uneasy about. We are aware how big this problem is and people are desperate for help!!! I wrote to Ford but they said they can't help because there are no recalls and they can't find any record of our car being at a Ford dealer so I just sent them the invoice. I cannot believe there are so many vehicles with the same problem and Ford won't do anything about it.

The door ajar light is staying on even after the door is shut. The interior and outside lights will stay on after shutting door, causing the vehicle to lose battery power if not detected early. If it is daylight this may be hard to see. It also does not let you engage the alarm, or even worse the alarm will go off for no apparent reason, also draining the battery if not detected early. I've only had this car a few months, but has been a problem since day one. I thought it was something that I was doing wrong until I did a little research and found out that I was not the only one having this problem.

Door ajar warning light comes on because of a faulty sensor. Only comes on when vehicle is first started and makes the automatic locks useless. Interior light stays on, doors will not lock automatically, or can they be locked remotely. Seems to be a very common issue with many Ford products.

Car wil gradually slow down leading to a complete stop. Power to the engine seems to decrease and speed slows. Happened 4 times over several weeks. It would happen then an hour later car would be completely fine and drive ok for a few days and then happen again. Happened when the car was driving at 30-50 mph on normal city streets (not highway) we took it to the dealer, where they identified the throttle body as the cause of the issue. Our VIN is not eligible for the replacement program though; which we do not understand - meets the year/make/model and characteristics of issue. Ever since we purchased the car we have also had lingering electrical issues - separate of the throttle body, that no one has been able to identify -- drive door light says open and it's not, taillights randomly flash when car is off and no one is in car, etc. We are thinking this one was just a dud. We also own another Ford Edge 2014 model - no issues. Car is currently being repaired for the throttle body issue. We can provide receipts / info once we pick it up. Called Ford and they said that vehicles identified for the recall were based on date of manufacture and location - they must've missed us.
