Ford Edge owners have reported 5 problems related to battery dead (under the electrical system category).
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.

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 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.

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.
