Driver door ajar light and sounds while car is in motion. Dome lights come on and won't go off.

Vehicle continues to alarm drivers door ajar even though it is shut, I am told it is a common issue with the door latch sensor, because of this the vehicle does not sense that the door is shut, it continues to ding and flash between "driver door ajar" and "shift to park" because of this, none of the doors lock and the interior lights stay on (very troublesome at night)

When shut, the door does not register as such. I have had to open/close it several times before the "door ajar" signal goes off. This issue has been progressively worsening, and now I believe the 'sensor' has completely failed. The door shuts, locks, and arms the alarm, yet the dome light and ajar symbol continue to stay on. Ford has told me this is a "wear and tear" issue that they will not cover! I have seen this issue affect many Ford models between 2001-2015 but more prominently when it comes to the Edge. I got the vehicle 08/2015 and this issue started occurring intermittently by 12/2015; now, this is occurring each time I have to open the driver door.

Driver's side door ajar light will not always go off when door closes. This causes interior lights to remain on going down the road and at night causes driver to not see as well. Also, doors will not automatically lock when door sensor doesn't work correctly which is worrisome in some parts of town. Many times dome lights may stay on for hours when door shows to be ajar. This of course causes battery to run down which has required battery to be replaced. Please help as I now know there are many Ford owners who will not purchase or recommend any Ford to family or friends.

The driver's side door gives off the warning that it is open when the door is closed. Checking online it looks like it is the door ajar switch which has been an ongoing problem with Ford and I believe they need to recall this issue

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. After shutting the vehicle's door, the door ajar warning light illuminated continuously. The contact opened the door and shut it, but the warning light remained illuminated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the cause of the failure was undetermined. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 52,000. The VIN was not provided.

  • 37,500 miles
After closing the driver side door, the door ajar light comes on. The doors used to automatically lock as you put it in reverse/drive if all of the doors are closed properly, but the driver side door sensor tells the car door is ajar. This not only annoying to see the pop up, the interior lights stay on which is also a safety issue. Ford has received many complaints on this issue but is refusing to do a recall.

Door ajar comes on while the door is closed and you have the open and close the door more than 50 times for it to go off......Ford needs to redesign or replace sensors/ door lock mech. Especially not even being 2,000 miles after replacement and from what I've read online with other Ford Edge owners and other Ford vechical owners this is a very common problem

problem #307

  • 50,000 miles
The door sensor on front driver's side door does not work properly. I have to shut the door very hard several times before it says the door is closed. This can leave the interior lights running after the car is turned off and can cause problems with the door locking properly.

  • 25,000 miles
The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. While parked, the front passenger side door sensor light illuminated and chimed in the vehicle. The failure prevented the doors from locking manually and electronically. The failure previously occurred on the front driver side door too. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 25,000. Updated 05/10/16

The door ajar warning message (always indicating the driver side door) comes on even when the door is closed. I have to shut the door hard several times to get the warning message or door ajar removed. Now there have been instances when I am driving and the drivers side door ajar warning appears. The warning messages also say shift to park when the door ajar warning message appears.

The driver door ajar light remains on after door is shut. The dome lights remain on. Shift to park warning comes on. This happens when driving as well. The alarm will not activate. I have to try several times to close the door on order for it to go off.

  • 22,000 miles
The front driver door sensor will not go off no matter how many times you open and re-close the door. This causes the following to occur: 1) when driving the car, the doors will not lock, which is a major safety issue for those with children 2) when leaving the car, the door is not recognized as closed so the interior dome light and side-view mirror lights all remain on. This drains the battery while the car sits idle.

My Ford Edge 2013 is not turning off the overhead lights when I close the driver side door and when driving I get a warning stating that the door is ajar.sometimes after slamming the driver door two to three times it goes away.it has become quiet annoying and dangerous when I drive since it becomes a constant distraction.I have gone to the dealer and they state that either the sensor or the latch have become faulty..really?...I think its about time for Ford to do a recall and correct this issue since I have talked to other Ford owners with the same exact issue in there offices.

The drivers door is showing open on the instrument panel even when closed. There is also and audible alarm warning that the door is not closed. The door lock feature will not engage when the vehicle is in motion. I am unsure if the door is safely latched at all
