Ford Edge owners have reported 28 problems related to battery dead (under the electrical system category).
Control panel states doors ajar and lights won't turn off or doors won't lock. Dome light stays on and creates dangerous conditions at night when trying to back out or while driving. Lights will also come back on when stopped at stop light and won't go back off until a certain rate of speed has been met due to the system thinking the door is ajar when it's not. Doors will also not lock when car is off and dome light stays on draining battery till the battery is dead sitting in parked position. It is also climate sensitive and is worse on cold or humid days. Both the driver and the drivers passenger door is affected and creates extremely dangers driving conditions. This has been going on for at least 6 months and continues to get worse.

Car is stationary. Door ajar sensor is showing the interior light remains on which make it dangerous to back up at night. This also causes the battery to die. Door ajar chime constantly going off every three to five minutes.
Door adjar light stays illuminated even when door is shut. Dome lights stay on causing battery to die. Vehicle chimes while driving causing mild distraction.
2012 Ford Edge, "drivers door ajar" message on constantly. Doors cannot be locked when vehicle started!! interior lights remain lit and battery drains! message says to "put car in park and close drivers door". Door closes without issue but drivers door ajar message does not go away. Suspect switch is bad in door. This can be a very dangerous situation if doors cannot be locked after starting vehicle!! could lead to carjacking theft or my wife and children being stranded if battery dies. This needs to be addressed immediately!!.

Door ajar warning light does not go off when all doors are closed. . . The interior dome lights remain on and does not turn off until vehicle is in drive and has moved more than about 250 feet. It is extremely dangerous at night time especially when a lit dome light makes it very difficult to see out of the vehicle. This weekend the battery died as a direct cause of this issue! Ford just issued a recall for 1. 5 million defective vehicles and this year needs to be added ASAP. I refuse to pay for something out of pocket that the manufacture should be held responsible for. . . Please help!.

Door ajar light on leaving dome lights on causing battery to die and everytime stop at red light-chimes.
Car dorr ajar message ad dome light on at all times, low electrical power, caused the battery to go bad, latch on door problem, car would not lock, car stationary and you could not lock the door to start car.
Drive's side door ajar warning light constantly display. Interior lights will not dim because car thinks door is open when latch is secure. And door is properly closed. Very dangerous to drive at night because the interior lights do not shit off. I fear it could drain the battery dead when car left in park and off. Numerous simile complaints.
The contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. While driving at an unknown speed, the door ajar warning indicator illuminated and the parking and cabin lights remained illuminated indefinitely. As a result, the battery died. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer where the failure was remedied, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not made aware of the issue. The VIN was unknown. The approximate failure mileage was 59,000.
Drive's side door ajar warning light constantly displays. Interior lights will not dim because car thinks door is open when latch is secure. In addition, doors cannot be locked. As a woman who travels a lot and gets in her car, alone, often late at night, I do truly believe this to be a terribly safety issue!!! dome lights often remain on even when car is off a no one is in it. I fear it could drain the battery dead when car left in park and off. In addition, I often have difficulties with the car's sync system and the car almost always has exhaust/fuel fumes when traveling above 60 mph. I don't know if all of these issues are related, but with a vehicle so dependant on electrical systems for operation I worry about a life-threatening issue!!!.
The passenger door ajar light stays on along with dome light when door is closed. Caused my battery to die.
Takata recall. The driver door ajar light stays on at all times. Will not go off no matter how many times you shut the door, the dome light stays on, runds the battery dead. I have tried every thing including wd 40. I believe it is the sensor but I am not a mechanic so. . . . I have googled this issue and it seems that everyone that owns a Ford Edge has this issue. I can not believe there is not a recall on this issue. My driver door has at times not latched completely. I believe this is a safety issue as I am driving on the freeway and have small children. Ford needs to get their act together and recall this issue for every one that owns a Ford Edge. I have bought Fords for years. This will be my last. This issue is everytime you enter the vehicle. Stationary, driving, freeway, highway, turning. This has been going on for months now. Has been a continuing problem for several months.
Door ajar warning comes on, even when door is shut. This prevents the doors from locking and they can only be locked manually, the dome lights will never go off and eventually the battery dies, and the ac will only blow cold on 1 setting. It will not blow heat. The keypad will not let the vehicle lock when the warning is on. This happens when the car is moving or stationary, and intermittently. Sometimes it doesn't happen, sometimes I have to shut the door 20 times to get it to lock properly with the lights off.
For the second time in less than two years my car is indicating that the driver's side door is open when it is closed. It notifies me constantly using lights and dinging which is very distracting while driving. Every time you turn on the car or step on the accelerator from a stop or slow speed it starts dinging. When backing up it is dinging making it hard to distinguish whether there is an object in the path. It also keeps the dome light from going off which caused the battery to fail which cost $162 to replace. Additionally, the first time I paid $120 to have it fixed at the dealer. 'when the problem recurred I searched the internet and found that it is a very common problem which should be recalled by Ford. A small inexpensive plastic piece which an experienced mechanic should be able to replace in 15 minutes. "when did this happen" and "how fast were you going" does not fit into a single date or speed; this has been ongoing for a couple of years and occurs at all speeds.
The door latch sensor doesn't seem to be working. The door is closed but is says it's not. I can not lock the doors and my overhead lights stay on and the battery will die. I've taken it into the dealership before and they say the sensors are dirty and they cleaned them, but it didn't fix the problem. It happens at all times (stationary or moving).
The door ajar signal constantly stays on after I've already made sure the door was shut. This has happened multiple times in the last two weeks. My interior lights do not shut off until I've slammed the door about 5-6 times. It's really hard to tell if they've shut off in the daytime and so I'm fearful I may come out to my battery being dead. It also scares me to see it come on while I'm driving with my daughter as I'm unsure whether the door is properly latched. This needs to be a recall so that all drivers experiencing this issue can get this fixed immediately.
Door ajar light remains on when door is shut and interior lights stay on. In addition, each time you stop and resume driving the chimes ding which distract driver. If you do not notice interior lights are on when you lock your car, battery will be dead when you return. In addition to a increased possibility of a motor vehicle accident this defect also subjects you to being victim of a crime when you return to a stranded vehicle and have to wait for assistance to arrive.
Door ajar sensor remains on even when door is shut. Doors do not lock when sensor is on. Interior lights stay on. Battery dies because lights do not turn off. All my doors are unlocked so it is very unsafe, someone could enter my vehicle while it is stopped. This happens everyday and cleaning the latch does not help.
Driver side door indicator stays on even though door is shut. Dome light won't go off and doors won't lock. Battery went dead. I have to slam door hard several times to get indicator and light to turn off and doors to lock.
The contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 60 mph, a burning odor emitted inside of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who stated there was an electrical problem that originated from the fuse box. The failure caused the battery to fail. The battery was replaced on two separate occasions however, the failure persisted. In addition, the rear lift gate failed to release and opened independently. The front driver's side seat belt would not latch securely. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 61,000.
Door ajar sensor failed causing battery to die. Had to buy new battery and pay $500+ to replace door ajar sensor. The fed opened an investigation on October 3, 2016 to inquire about this widespread issue.
The drivers door ajar light stays on 90% of the time while driving down the road. When you shut the vehicle off and even if you remove the keys the lights all remain on as if you had the doors open and run the battery dead, only shows drivers door, all other door sensors are fine! I am an avid Ford owner but I see so many others having the same issue, I hope to see a recall to fix this problem or our next vehicle might not be a Ford!.
On the driver's door only, the door ajar notification remains on even after the door is securely shut. The door will not lock with that notification on and the interior lights do not want to go out either. Also, when the car is off and the doors are locked, this, what seems like an electrical shortage, causes the auxiliary lights come on and off and it causes the battery to die over time. This has been the case since the car was purchased in 2012.
Driver door and left rear door constantly says door ajar. Regardless how hard it is closed it still says door ajar. Wd40 or any other lubrucant or cleaner does not rectify the situation. This is when the vehicle is parked or in motion, with the key in or out of the ignition. Because of this the interior lights to not turn out, which causes the battery to go dead repeatedly. In addition to the dead battery the dome light will stay on while driving.
The panel shows driver door ajar all the time while driving the interior lights stay on after car has been locked for some time the lights go on even if the car has not been used for a while while the door ajar is on, the doors do not lock-safety issue, car in motion I tried getting the dealer I bought the car from to repair it, they stated that they could not because there was not recalls on my issues. But if I wanted it repaired it would cost me $350. 00 to change the sensor that may be causing the problem. I believe the dealer sold me a lemon. . . The door ajar comes up as I close the left door as I put the car in motion;the doors do not lock while the car is in motion; interior lights is when the car is parked; the lights go on when the car is parked in the garage. The battery has died a couple of times as a result of this.
I am unable to "select affected parts" in this form: parts - power train, transmission, battery. Over the past 6 months there have been numerous incidents where my vehicle, upon returning to speed or entering a roadway/highway, or otherwise entering a roadway, it has made a noise, a sudden jerk, seem to hold speed (fail to increase speed) and seems to feel like it is failing to changed gears (appears to rev in rpms slightly), then jerks again, and comes back into routine shifting. It is an automatic. This happens often. I have had the fluid check, flushed, replaced, asked my mechanic and she can find no issues. It seems to feel like it bogs down, but rpms appear to increase (almost as if it is not in gear/neutral). It seems to be happening more and more frequently. I have routinely checked my car for recalls. And I should note have had the ball bearing go bad (as recalled) and replaced, including the entire arm on the left rear. Additionally, my battery has failed and been replaced (approximately 3 years ago) and has since required replacement again. It needs to be jumped started, and upon first replacement (by Ford) it was noted not all cylinders or cells were charged/charging.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. The contact stated that the passenger and driver side door ajar warning lights illuminated. As a result, the doors failed to latch and the interior lights failed to deactivate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the driver and passenger side door sensors needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. On another occasion, the push to start failed to operate without warning. The contact believed that the failure of the door sensors caused the battery to fail. The battery was replaced, but the failure recurred intermittently. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 20,000.
Twice after backing up and shifting the car from reverse to drive, the car stalled/shut off. The first time it occurred after backing onto a busy street. While pushing on the gas with no forward movement, I saw a message displayed in the dash that the car must be in park to start. I was extremely lucky that in that instance I had enough time to start the vehicle and move prior to traffic reaching me as it occurred on a busy street. The approximate date for the first occurrence was in June of 2011. The second was on July 5, 2011, with approximately 2,450 miles. On November 3, 2011, and November 29, 2011, my cars battery died resulting in needing to call Ford roadside assistance to tow it to the dealer. Prior to that, I twice had a battery saver message displayed after I shut off my car, although everything was off. While at the dealer the second time it happened, the battery died for the third time after approximately 8 hours. The battery test always reported that the battery was okay. After a week at the shop they were still unable to determine the cause. Two times my vehicle would not recognize that I had the key in my possession within the vehicle and therefore would not start. I do not know if all of these issues are possibly interconnected with the computer system.
