Edge 6-cyl

  • 44,000 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. After starting the vehicle, the door ajar and shift into park warning indicators illuminated and the door chime indicator sounded after all of the doors were closed. The interior lights remained illuminated the entire time. The failure recurred on several occasions. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the wiring harness and switch in the driver's door assembly needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 44,000. Updated 5/19/15 updated 7/1/2015

Bought my car in February of 2014. (we were the 2nd owners. Not sure if previous owners experienced trouble before they traded the car in.) almost immediately we started having issues with "door ajar" lights staying on which caused the interior lights to stay on while driving down the road. It also doesn't allow the doors to lock themselves automatically when driving. We had sensors replaced by Ford on both front doors after a lot of back and forth with them last year. Now we are having trouble with a sensor on one of the back doors that's causing all the same problems as last time only this time we are also having trouble with interior lights coming on and going off on their own while the car is sitting parked. Nobody likes a dead battery. This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. Right now this is a warranty issue for me but will eventually cost around $500 a pop to fix and more importantly it poses a safety issue for the children riding in my car if their door doesn't latch properly & I don't know it because I assume it's just the sensor acting up again. Please help get this sensor recalled. Ford has no intention of doing it.

Driver's door is shut tightly, but "driver door ajar" light keeps coming up intermittently. Also, dome lights stay on and warning sounds. Started off occasionally doing this, now is doing practically every time you go to start the engine.

The door latch on the 2013 Ford Edge is faulty, and continually has to be replaced. This is the second time in 6 months we have had to have this replaced, and this time, we are 3000 miles over our warranty, and are having to go out of pocket for this - an expense of over $300. Additionally, because the door latch doesn't work correctly, it continually causes the interior lights of the cart to stay on, which has caused the battery to deplete, and we are now facing the charge for a new battery as well in order to get our vehicle in working order. Lastly, Ford informed us today that the factory battery that they installed is "too small" for this size vehicle, and a larger capacity battery should be put in its place. We purchased this car new, and issues like this make us feel as if we've purchased a lemon. Ford is now charging us for a part that is clearly poorly manufactured, and as a consequence, causing us to buy additional parts like batteries to support their mistakes.

Driver side door indicator stays on even though door is shut. Dome light won't go off and doors won't lock. Battery went dead. I have to slam door hard several times to get indicator and light to turn off and doors to lock.

The driver door ajar sensor is always on even when I close the door. The drive door ajar sensor never goes off. It causes the lights to come on while I am driving, it will not let me lock the doors while I am inside the car as well as the lights stay on for over 5 minutes when I try to lock the car after I get out. This is draining my battery.

Driver side door symbol will appear on dash board was well as doom lights will stay on, will have to shut door a couple of times or turn the car back on to reset. This now getting to the point that the car cannot be locked or the doom interior lights will stay on and drain the battery.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 36,000 miles
The system is showing a "door ajar" alarm, drivers front door. Initially I thought it was just because I did not close the door enough so I just opened it, and pulled a little harder and the alarm went away. I drove the car for a few days and one morning when it was frosty I closed the door and the "door ajar" alarm posted again. I opened the door and closed it several times and the alarm went away. From this I thought the striker needed to be adjusted, I thought, "how is it possible that the door switch could have failed on a vehicle that is only 1.5 years old?". I drove the car for a few more days and at this point the alarm was posting about 50% of the time. Around the beginning of December the alarm began posting all the time. Now, it posts nearly 95% of the time with only a few times where it does not. The issue with this alarm is twofold: 1) it keeps the dome lights on because the system does not see that the door is closed when you get out of the car and lock it, thus the timer must time out (around 20 minutes) and the lights turn off. 2) this prevents the doors from being locked while driving. The last one is the one that I have a problem with because this, to me, is a safety concern.

The driver side door sensor will not recognize the door is shut. This is causing the interior lights to remain on during the night time and the doors cannot lock. My child is able to open the door while moving causing a major safety issue. Ford is aware of the problem when we took it in and knows this is a defect, but will not address the issue. The require us to pay 300-500 dollars to fix. Please make them recall this for the safety of the children in the back seat. I will be contacting my lawyer to see what further steps we can take.

While driving - even though the driver door is completely shut, the driver door ajar warning sign appears on the dashboard screen accompanied by the sound of a chime. Sometimes when you open and shut the driver door whether while still driving or if and when you find a side of the road space, the warning sign disappears. But oftentimes, it takes 3 or four tries to make it disappear. Sometimes the driver door ajar warning comes with an instruction to shift to P (park).... which is helpful if you can find a side of the road spot otherwise the instruction will just confuse a novice driver and could potentially create an accident. I search the internet and found this problem is very common with Ford Edge. I feel that this problem could potentially create an accident and warrants a recall.

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. While driving 10 mph, the driver side door ajar light illuminated and prevented the doors from locking while the vehicle was in motion. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the front driver side door sensor malfunctioned and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 42,000. The VIN was not available.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 38,792 miles
My vehicle is a 2014 Ford Edge with less 40,000 miles. The door ajar sensor is malfunctioning thus preventing the door to lock while vehicle is in motion and the interior dome light stays on while driving. My child has opened the door on many occasions while vehicle was in motion and almost fell out. Ford is aware of this issue and there many online forums with customers having the same issue dating back to 2010. And instead of doing recall Ford has issued a tsb.

  • 42,000 miles
The door ajar warning light continued to stay on even after closing the driver side door. We "googled" the situation and found out that many owners of Ford Edge vehicles have reported this problem. We took it to a dealership to get repaired. We did have an extended warranty, but ended up paying $150 diagnostic fee. The total cost was $459 (extended warranty paid). After reading the blogs about this repair, we would like to see this be a recall for the vehicle.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 56,000 miles
After closing the door then starting the vehicle the "door ajar" will not go off which notifies the driver to put the vehicle in park. I think this is a safety issue as the vehicle may not protect the driver and passengers in the event an accident occurs. I also noticed that when turning the vehicle off to get gas or etcetera, it keeps notifying you to put the vehicle in park. I think this is directly related to the door latch being faulty. Ford wants $400 to repair this item which I think is a safety issue and should be recalled as many Edge owners are experiencing the same faults.

My door ajar light continues to come on. I shut the door multiple times and sometimes it turns off and some times it doesn't. I think the lock or latch on the door is faulty.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 38,850 miles
Door ajar sensor indicates door is ajar when it clearly is not. This makes locking the doors impossible and causes the interior dome lights to illuminate. Car is less than 2 years old. Apparently, this is a problem with the switch assembly across numerous Ford vehicles.

problem #5

  • 32,000 miles
The driver side door becomes ajar even when shut and you have to open and shut the door numerous times to have the alert go away. The dome lights stay on and at night this not safe. Also, every time you start to accelerate the car beeps and tells you to put the car in park, which is a distraction. Also this prevents the doors from locking while the vehicle is in motion and causes the interior lights to remain on in the vehicle when parked. If continue to drive while door ajar lamp is illuminated the alert will also chime every time I start from a complete stop which very distracting.
