When my car is turned on and stationary with all doors closed, the dash gives me a warning that says the driver side rear door is ajar, when again, it is closed.

Drivers side door latch mechanism has failed. The door open warning light on the dash stays on. Attempts to get it to go out have failed. The car dings the entire time while driving it. At night the overhead lights stay on and interfers with visibility. When car is parked the interior lights stay on, draining the battery due to the door open warning on the dash.

The rear passenger door latch mechanism closed without the door actually being closed. This caused a false positive condition for the "door ajar" warning system. I thought that the door was secure, however the door was in fact not latched to the vehicle. My eight year old daughter was sitting in the seat. Were it not for the perception of my wife who suspected that the door was insecure I would have been driving with a door that would open while the car was moving. This false positive condition is caused by the fact that Ford has placed the sensor that tests for the door being closed on the latch mechanism rather than on the vehicle body. As our circumstances demonstrate the simple fact of the door latch being closed does not insure that the door is actually secured to the vehicle body. While no injuries occurred in our incident the potential for a serious injury is obvious. Had the door actually opened my child may have easily fallen out of a moving vehicle. The driver of the car must know with absolute certainty that all doors are truly secured. Testing the latch for being closed is not a sufficient test for the closure of the doors.
