Door ajar at driver's side "on" intermittently, either parked or driving until it remained "on" all the time even after shifting to park, opening and closing the door, turning the engine on and off. Warning showed need to shift to park. Hazardous when driving, especially on the freeway. Ford maintenance repaired/cleaned latch on 4/2015 and charged $269.90. Same problem reappeared on 12/2015. Ford maintenance replaced/repair faulty door latch on 1/2016 and charged $317.

The drivers door closing sensor does not operate properly. Without the door being closed the lights stay on and many other electronics do not work properly if the door is registered as open. This includes draining the battery because I can't get the lights shut off when I am not driving the car. In Feb 2015, I was told that it needed to be cleaned, so the dealer charged me $250 to tear apart the door to clean the sensor. Just 10 months later it started to happen again.

Even though the driver's side door is properly closed, the door ajar indicator light will all of a sudden come on and then the interior lights will also come one which is very hazardous if you are driving at night. Also when this happens you cannot lock the doors which makes it not safe for children or adults with disabilities whom may be a passenger in the car as well. Sometimes you have to slam the door about 15 times before it stops or it might not stop at all.

Vehicle stalling while driving and check engine light comes on, pull over turn off and restart, and the problem goes away. Just like several other complaints, appears to be the electronic throttle body. Replaced yesterday in 15 min, waiting to see if problem is resolved

Door ajar signal stays on when door is closed, interior lights stay on, the door does not lock. The dome light stays on creating a safety hazard while driving at night. The false door ajar signal prevents the door from locking. This is a major safety issue. This happens both when stationary and while driving. Today November 11, 2016 is the fourth time I have taken in the car for the same issue.

I have a 2012 Ford Edge. It loss power when I drive at 20mph in the noon. The yellow wrench light was on and the car started shaking. The engine was still working at that time. I was stopped in the middle of the road to turn left. I turn off the car and restart it. It worked well. It happened twice in a week. Ford dealer auto service in santa monica wouldn't find the problem. I am still in extension warranty. Ford customer service have no solution except asking me to try other dealer auto service. I just pray for a good luck...

The panel shows driver door ajar all the time while driving the interior lights stay on after car has been locked for some time the lights go on even if the car has not been used for a while while the door ajar is on, the doors do not lock-safety issue, car in motion I tried getting the dealer I bought the car from to repair it, they stated that they could not because there was not recalls on my issues. But if I wanted it repaired it would cost me $350 to change the sensor that may be causing the problem. I believe the dealer sold me a lemon...the door ajar comes up as I close the left door as I put the car in motion;the doors do not lock while the car is in motion; interior lights is when the car is parked; the lights go on when the car is parked in the garage. The battery has died a couple of times as a result of this.

Driver door ajar sensor malfunction. You must close door multiple times before the door ajar alarm goes off. Sometimes you can't make it go off and the dome lights stay on, alarm dings. When parking car and getting out, you can't lock doors, dome light stays on. Very frustrating. Ford dealer says this is a common issue. Car out of warranty. Very expensive to have fixed.

The door ajar sensor is malfunctioning. When the door is closed the sensor is on and I am unable to lock the vehicle. If I park the car the dome light will stay on and run the battery down unless I close the door multiple times over and over again.

Drivers side door says its ajar most of the time the lights in the car stay on and the other doors wont lock while in motion. Sometime the car says to stop and put it in park and shut the door but it is shut. I have seen this plastered all over the internet as I googled what is wrong with my car. All these newer cars with such issues which could be dangerous is scary

2012 Ford Edge door latch, Ford Edge door ajar alert/notification - for the past several weeks the notification system thinks a door is ajar when in fact it is not. There are dozens of forums regarding this very same issue and that direct people file a complaint with this website; as most believe Ford should recall said vehicles to correct the manufacturing error that is so blatantly apparent. We have since bought the latch and repaired it. The part cost us $101.15. We feel like we should be reimbursed for this. I loved my vehicle but have really gotten disappointed in it and Ford as a whole.
