Door ajar light stays on and won't register when the front driver's side door is shut. Lights will not dim while driving or parked, locks will not work properly either. Battery is being drained because of the faulty sensor. Ford will not cover repairs, even though my vehicle is still under warranty.

The driver's door warning drivers door is ajar will not go off. Even when car is off, lights remain on inside the car. While driving, light and warning continually stay on, doors will not lock because sensor for door remains on. When I come to a stop while car is running, warning to shift car to park will come on..this is a huge safety problem with little children in car.. doors will not stay locked..

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. While the vehicle was parked, the door ajar warning indicator for the front driver's side door illuminated and a chime sounded even though all the doors were closed.

The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 30,000. The VIN was unavailable.

The door ajar light was continuing to turn on, even while driving, creating an unsafe driving situation as all the interior lights come on and will not turn off until you pull over, put the car in park, open the door, push in the door latch, and then shut it again and again until the door ajar comes off. I had this fixed at while still under warranty. It started doing this again less than 6 months later. I was then informed that the drivers door latch is faulty and the switch inside is causing the light to stay on. It is recommended to replace the lf door latch at $445. It was "cleaned" according to the service gentlemen, but not replaced in January when it was still under warranty. He said it will do the same thing it currently is in about 6 months if they just clean it again and not replace it. It is a hazard while driving and a huge safety concern. I am unsure why it would not have been replaced originally. I assumed when I took it in it had been fixed and replaced, not just cleaned.

The driver side door ajar sensor fails to detect that the door is closed and latched. This causes the automatic door locks to unlock the doors even when the vehicle is in motion. This can be a safety issue in the event of a collision.

Driver door ajar warning. Cannot lock doors, interior lights go on, warning chime sounds. Very dangerous especially at night with the interior lights on with doors unlocked. Dealer said no recall.

Was driving approx. 45 mph coming thru a 5 corners major intersection at peak traffic time of 5:15pm. Driving on state farm to market road in town of 100K residents. Had been driving approx. 3 miles. Temp in 80's, roads dry. Complete loss of power, nearly rear ended. Car crept a little, moved to middle turn lane, strong forward lurch/jerk, yellow wrench light on. Put car in park, turned it off. Tried to start, nothing. Sat about a minute, tried, started. Limped to parking lot. Turned vehicle off, sat for about 20 minutes. Then took route home going thru subdivisions where stall would not jeapordize life. Could not drive to dealer as that would involve highway, and risk of fatal accident. I was very fortunate today, have never been that scared driving a vehicle in 40 yrs of driving.

A faulty switch in driver door causing a constant faulty driver door ajar alarm in car...dome light stays on at night while car is in reverse...doors will not lock while driving because the sensor is saying that the door is open...after parking/shutdown lights remain on additional minutes, again sensing that the door is open causing un-needed battery drain...no recall...$400 repair to replace a cheap faulty door switch...many people complaining on internet about this very problem...

Driver's door sensor does not work properly making it seem the door is open when it is not. Doors cannot be locked making for unsafe conditions for passengers. Carjacking very possible!

The door open warning light stays on even when its closed, this is not allowing the doors to close properly, this also causes the panic alarm to go off and it keeps the dome light on while driving causing glare at night due to the bright dome light staying on. This also drains the batter due to the constant intirior lights staying on when the car is parked and closed

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Edge. After the vehicle was refueled, the contact discovered that fuel was leaking without warning. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the fuel filler pipe needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. In addition, when the vehicle was shut off, the instrument panel remained illuminated and caused the battery to become inoperable. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on two separate occasions where it was diagnosed that the door ajar switch needed to be cleaned and replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The contact also mentioned that the heating system failed to operate without warning. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the heating system needed to be reprogrammed. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 29,338.

After starting vehicle, the driver door ajar light will come on. The doors will not lock and the interior lights will stay on. This is the third time this has happened. It started the first time, April of 2015, 42,799 miles. Took to dealer and said it was fixed. April 2016, 54,629 miles did same thing. Returned to dealer, said it was fixed. Today at 58,770 miles it is doing same thing again. Vehicle is presently at the dealer for repair. Do not feel I should have to pay for this repair again. The government should make Ford recall this problem and get it fixed. Do not feel it is safe to be driving and this happens, no locked doors and interior lights can come on. When this happens, you can hit the ok switch on the steering wheel to stop the warning buzzer from constantly ringing to the occasional reminder, but the doors still do not lock. This happens right after you get in the vehicle, shut the door and start the engine. It has also happened when driving and it will come on.

Past year car warns to shift into park; although in park. Warning that drivers door is ajar, when it is closed. This causes the interior lights to stay on, cant lock the doors and causes my car alarm to go off at any given time. The dealer has been unable to fix. Please recall this. There and tons of complaints on this site and all over the internet. How can Ford ignore this"?"
