problem #238

  • 48,000 miles


Drivers side door ajar indicator continuously going off when door is shut. Continues to stay on after several attempts to shut door to make alarm go off. Makes it a driving distraction.. has been an ongoing issue and we just took it to the dealership to have repaired. Our extended warranty will not cover the problem and the dealership wanted over $500 to repair. We cannot afford the repair right now so we have to deal with it until we can. Again, a major driving distraction

The door ajar like stays on while door is closed. The door is closed. I have to open and close the door several times to get it to shut off. The inside light also stays on until the door ajar light goes off. The other doors do not lock while this is happening. This is a real safety hazard and should be fixed by Ford under a recall

Door ajar sensor constantly turns on and won't shut off - at times I have to slam the door 10+ times to get it to shut off. All interior lights stay on and doors don't lock. Very unsafe conditions. It has gone on for 6 months and I have finally had enough. Cost to get it fixed it $300. Once this recall goes thru I will be requesting my money back. I see they recalled several years worth of vehicles of Ford, just not the newer ones. Rip off.

Driver door alarm beeps when door is closed. Interior lights stay on. This occurred earlier this year and Ford 'cleaned off' the sensor. Started to happen again several weeks ago. Ford is replacing the sensor, but we have to pay for this because the issue has not qualified for a recall. Please submit a complaint if this is happening to your 2013 Ford Edge.

It started sporadically and now it is an every turn the key occurrence. The driver door is closed. The car will 'sense' it is not closed. During this time, it will not lock, the interior lights, sensing the door is open will remain on. Takes several attempts of slamming the door for it to register that the door is closed. Occasionally, during driving, it will all of the sudden show and beep the driver door is open and will unlock all 4 doors. Today, while entering the vehicle to go to work, it happened as usual however, this time, regardless of how many times I closed the door (slammed, gently pushed it) it would not register closed. I had to turn the vehicle off, restart the vehicle, close the door 4 times for it to register that the door was closed. This vehicle has 38K miles.

Get driver door ajar alarm when driver door is closed, which keeps dome light on, won't allow doors to lock when driving, and when driving and go from stop to drive get alarm shift to park because it senses door is ajar. This has been repaired and repair lasted about 6 mo. Have to shut door several times before it senses door is closed and then on some occassions alarm will not go off at all.

Ca. passenger door says ajar after shutting door. Can open and shut over and over and sometimes it will go off, other times will not. Causes lights to stay on when vehicle is running and not running. Safety concern: The doors will not lock, leaving the back doors unlocked with small children able to open the door. Everytime the vehicle stops the annoying alert sensor signal keeps going off. There should be a recall on this, I see it is very common for this vehicle.

Door ajar warning indicator lights. Lights stay on and if you lock the door with key and walk away you have a dead batter they next day. Repeated shuting of door will some times will reset door ajar but it eventually fails completely and repeated slamming of door does nothing.
