The door sensor is not working correctly. The car continues to indicate "door ajar" all the time. The dome light will not turn off now when I am driving at night and the interior car lights come on at night which is draining my battery. I had to replace the battery since it had died yesterday.

Driver side door will shut, but inside will show "ajar" with all dome lights on. After numerous times (20+) of opening and closing the door, it will sometimes finally close to stop showing ajar and lights will turn off. In my opinion, this is a safety hazard if driving at night as I've experienced already once with my door not willing to close properly at night, and having to drive with all dome lights on (huge issue). Went to a Ford dealer that says they will run a diagnostics test to see what's wrong, but there are hundreds if not thousands of complaints already on-line of people having the same issue and this still hasn't been addressed by Ford for a recall. Many are saying the costs are from $250-$500 for repairs to get it fixed. For a 2 year old car, this should not be happening!

The front door lock sensor doesn't work. When the door is shut the sensor doesn't sense that the door is shut, causing the notice to direct user to shift car in park to shut door, when it's already shut.

Driver door ajar warning light stays on when door is shut. Door locks will not lock upon movement of vehicle when light is on. When trying to lock the vehicle after turning off, interior and puddle lights stay on, draining battery. This has gotten progressively worse over the past six months.

The driver's door ajar light on the dash instrument cluster and the interior lights stay illuminated even when the door is completely shut. The door needs to be slammed several times before the light extinguishes, but sometimes will not go out at all. This leaves driver with an insecure feeling the car door is not securely closed while driving. This problem seems to be widespread on this model vehicle from what I read on the internet.

Second time I will be taking my car in for service: Driver side door ajar keeps coming on again. You have to slam the door hard to get it to shut off. It happens even when some one is exiting the passenger door and the driverside door ajar message will show up. Engine on message also shows up. You can click the ok for both messages but the doors don't autolock when you drive. Also the dome lights inside the vehicle takes a long time to shut off. The headlights will shut off when you shut off the car but the inside lights stays on. Sometimes I will turn the car back on so they shut off.

The door agar sensor is not going off when I shut the door I keep having to slam the door shut multiple times for it to turn off. When I get out of my car the door does not always latch and you can tell when you lock it. The door ajar signal stays on when I shut my door. The dome light stays on when I get out of my car telling me that it is still open and when I try to lock it it makes a double beep so its like its not locking my car.

Door ajar switch is malfunctioning. The car will randomly say the drivers door is ajar. This typically happened when getting in and out of the car. Today it said the door was ajar randomly while driving.

  • 44,000 miles
Door ajar alert on dash board remains lit. This causes the interior dome lights to remain on, the car to "think" the doors are not all closed, and issues with locking the car doors. Very dangerous because at night the dome lights remain on. There is no way to get the lights to turn off until they automatically dim after approximately 3 minutes of active driving. Dome lights will always remain on when in reverse. Seems to be a guaranteed problem in all Ford Edge's, very frustrating. Hoping this helps to get a recall as it's quite costly to get repaired.

  • 13,500 miles


My 2013 Ford Edge sport with approx 13,500 miles has been doing this now for about 2 plus months. When you shift into park and then turn car off, it will beep and say on dash, "shift to park". the car is in park. If you get out of the car, you won't be able to lock the doors. The only way to make it stop is to start car again, put in drive and then almost slam the shifter into park again. Sometimes it will take 2 or 3 times before it won't do this. I have double checked to make sure there isn't anything in the way and there is not. Very frustrating. Of course it doesn't do this every time, so I have it on video. Grrrr!!

I have a 2013 Ford Edge and the driver side door sensor will not recognize when the door is closed. I looked around on the internet and this seems to be a fairly common problem among Ford Edges. It is not only annoying, but if you aren't careful to check, it can drain your battery as well because the dome light will remain on as the vehicle thinks the car door is ajar. So far Ford isn't replacing this under any sort of warranty.

The door ajar alarm sounds when the driver door is shut. At first I could open and close the door (sometimes numerous times) and it would go off. Now it stays on all the time. The doors will not lock and the overhead light comes on sometimes. I feel this is a safety hazard that Ford should recall and repair.

Door ajar signal stays on when door is closed which keeps the interior light on and prohibits the doors from locking while driving. This creates safety issues through the distraction of having the interior light constantly on and the doors not locking. Through online research, I've noticed that this is a very common problem for my type of vehicle and noticed that nothing has been done about it at this point.

The driver side door can be closed and light will come on saying door ajar even if the door is shut. This makes me stop the car and close door again.

  • 34,500 miles
The driver door ajar alarm started going off, and the doors unlocked while the car was moving on the interstate. It has now happened several times both while driving down the road and when getting in the vehicle. Now, the dome light and outside marker lights remain on and drain the battery when the vehicle is in park because the sensor isn't reading that the doors are closed.

Driver side door ajar censor is bad. Ford has known of the problem for a long time. When you shut the driver side door the dash light indicates the door is still open so you close it again and again and again. Ive googled it and Ford knows about it but I guess they rather you spend 500 dollars to get it fixed then do a recall. It happens all the time shutting the door and reshutting the door over and over to get the light to go out and to get it to stop dinging ive read all the complaints on line and still Ford does nothing why dont they have to tell you this problem before you buy the vehicle isnt that fraud. If you know of a problem you have to disclose it. You do when youre selling and buying a house!!!!
