Driver side door ajar sensor not working..wont allow doors to lock while driving bell continues to ring while driving and door ajar light stays on while driving.

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.

Door ajar light remains on repeatedly when door is correctly shut. This is a recurring problem that typically happens daily. Due to the false door ajar warning, the vehicle may be driven with the door ajar warning on. If the door were actually ajar, this could cause a safety risk. Vehicle doors cannot be locked when door ajar warning is present. This could present a safety risk if doors need to be locked.

The driver's door sensor is defective causing the doors to not lock and the interior lights to stay on. The lights on is a safety hazard especially at night. The false door ajar warning could cause the driver to disregard a true door ajar warning.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 25,000 miles
My 2013 Edge is new within the past 2 years and it is currently under lease. The door ajar notification is being triggered constantly which in turn affects other mechanisms or electrical systems in the car. The inability for the driver side door to close triggers cab lights, the door ajar lights, and the locking of doors. These issues can occur while stationary/parking and at various speeds while driving...at night and during the day. The cab light being on at night is the most dangerous from a driving standpoint, because it affects visibility to a point of wanting to try and open and shut it at high speeds. I don't know if having the cab light on while it is parked is enough to drain the battery or even how long the cab light even stays on, but unfortunately I'm going to probably learn this the hard way and be stranded. Also, there is definitely a risk of having items stolen from my car.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
Door ajar light continually come on, which results in a warning light, doors won't lock, can set the alarm when parked. The door (driver side door) is clearly closed. This is the second Ford Edge (previous was a 2011 model) that has had the exact same problem. Clearly a trend and a design flaw. Previous switch went bad at just under 40,000 miles.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 37,000 miles
The drivers door ajar switch gives false ajar indications. This causes the dome lights to stay on which is a night time driving safety hazard. The false reading prevents the driver for seeing any valid ajar situations. With the dome lights on, creates an unsafe environments when sitting in the car at night in a public area. The doors will not lock when sitting in the car.

Sensor in drivers door latch sends message to dash panel "door ajar". this results in a warning bell every time car starts from complete stop. We are concerned there might be something else wrong & we wouldn't notice the warning as it happens so often as we drive.

Drivers door latch faulty. Causes "door ajar" and "shift to park" warning lights even though door completely shut. Ignoring the warning light is dangerous. Under warranty Ford's procedure is still to only clean the contacts and not replace the unit. This fault occurred again after they cleaned.
