A door open warning indication comes up and results in dome lights also staying on even when the driver's door is properly closed. Requires you to slam the door several times to get this warning to come off. Apparently this is a common issue with Ford Edge vehicles yet Ford has yet to issue a recall for this safety issue.

The driver door sensor (when the door is shut tightly and secured) keeps turning interior lights on while driving in the dark! this is a safety issue. Guess what else happens? my doors will not lock because of this sensor. That is another safety issue on the opposite side of the safety spectrum. If this occurs both driving and while car is not in motion, how does Ford value the safety of their customers? hopefully by taking that this should be recalled and make their customers happy. This is disappointing, as well as frustrating because it is happening every single day.

Door ajar warning message. Dome light stays on while driving and while parked. Necessary to open and close doors multiple times before lights go off and warning message goes away. Both when securing the vehicle, and prior to driving off. Problem most severe during cold temperatures. Standing outside the vehicle for 10-20 minutes in 19 degree weather trying to secure vehicle. Started happening from December 2015 to present.

The vehicle was operated at indicated 45 mph by owner on a standard two lane highway in a rural environment. Outside air temperature was 48 degrees f. Lighting conditions were daylight and sunny. Without warning the vista sunroof exploded and shattered glass into the interior of the vehicle. There was no external force such as a projectile that caused the damage. All glass fractures were around each Edge at mounting locations. Similar cases have been reported and discussed on various forums. In each case, the damage occurs exactly the same way. This is most likely a manufacturing defect and should be considered very dangerous. Ford motor company needs to know about this and react before someone gets seriously hurt.

On January 4, 2016 the vehicle entered a safe mode in the middle of traffic. Without notice, while in motion and in the middle of traffic, the vehicle shut down; deployed the emergency brakes; and attempted to dial 911. It nearly caused an accident in the middle of a busy intersection. We promptly took the vehicle to the dealership, where they said the issue could not be replicated. The regional representative at Ford customer service stated that if the issue could not be replicated Ford would not be able to do anything else. The vehicle is brand new, with around 3000 miles. We are concerned about the vehicle and Ford's unwillingness to address the issue.

Vehicle sold in August 2015 without recall issue-15b21 water seeping through the a-pillar areas being addressed prior to sale of vehicle. Ford released this notification to dealerships in June 2015 that the issue must be correct prior to sale. The service issue of 15b21 was not repaired and nor was I notified by the manufacturer or the dealership where the vehicle was purchased. The beginning stages of the water damaged caused by this issue are: remote start failing to operate, right headlight, remote unlock and powered drivers seats intermittently working, smell of mildew and soaked floor carpets, also frost appearing inside every window of the vehicle.

The drivers side door indicator continually says door is ajar when the car is in motion and parked even though the door is in fact shut. I have to slam the door several times to get the vehicle to recognize the door is in fact closed. Too many complaints on this issue to not have a recall.

Even though the driver's side door is properly closed, the door ajar indicator light will all of a sudden come on and then the interior lights will also come one which is very hazardous if you are driving at night. Also when this happens you cannot lock the doors which makes it not safe for children or adults with disabilities whom may be a passenger in the car as well. Sometimes you have to slam the door about 15 times before it stops or it might not stop at all.

Door ajar alert comes on while driving (car in motion) - doors unlock, overhead lights turn on. I stop, open/shut door firmly continue driving and receive the same message later in the drive. I have on several recent occasions received this alert while stationary. This is occurring off and on but now has become more common. The door is shut but the alert comes on at a variety of intervals and when in motion the doors unlock and the lights overhead come in which can be dangerous in and distracting. Most recent occurrence 12/3/15.

Door ajar sensor faulty. The panel shows that a door is ajar which is not. This causes the domelight to turn on for quite a long time. When it happens at night visibility is poor and dangerous. I have already replaced two sensor on one door (drivers side) now going on third (front passenger side) it becomes very dangerous since visibilty at is bad. This complaint is becoming pretty comun. A community of Ford customers that really neede help. Just hope it does not become a tragedy.

My 2013 Ford Edge has an issue with the drivers side door closing. The door ajar light stays on even when the door is closed. When the car is off the interior light will stay on because of this issue, it takes slamming the door many times to trigger the lights to go off. Now it is at the point we are afraid it won't go off at all or we will damage the door, so we are entering the car through the passenger side in order not to set the issue off again. While driving the door ajar light stays on and I cannot lock my car doors. I heard via the web this is a common problem with the Ford Edge and other Ford models. My vehicle is only two years old and I have brought it back to the dealer to get fixed. They are replacing the door assembly and it is costing me about $400. 00 but we cannot continue driving it in this condition. I believe this is a horrible design and there should be a recall and a better fix for this issue. At the rate this is happening I will need to have the door assembly replaced in another two years. I find this unacceptable!.

The driver door ajar sensor stays on when the door is closed causing the interior lights to stay on and I am not able to lock the doors while in the vehicle. The false door ajar sensor prevents me from recognizing when there is a real ajar door situation. Also, the dome lights stay on at night causing a night driving hazard.

Vehicle losses all throttle control vehicle does not shut off but the wrench light comes on the dash and has no throttle response. I have to turn vehicle off then restart to reset the computer. Every thing works great for a couple days then it does it again. I have had this happen in the middle of a intersection, on I 95 , I 64, I 264, coming close to being hit on passenger side in a intersection with my grand baby in the vehicle. I have had the vehicle in the dealership here in norfolk virginia. They charge me 125. 00 and said they could not duplicate the problem. The dealer also stated they think it might be a throttle body. I told them to put one on it and they told me that they don't just replace parts. I picked it up from the dealership and 2 days later it did this again. You could be doing 60, 65. Or 25 when it decides to lose throttle control. In the middle of a intersection turning or going 60 mph on the interstate it don't matter. I feel this is a safety concern and needs to be addressed. You can read about people with the same problem on the internet.

Driver door alarm beeps when door is closed. Interior lights stay on. This occurred earlier this year and Ford 'cleaned off' the sensor. Started to happen again several weeks ago. Ford is replacing the sensor, but we have to pay for this because the issue has not qualified for a recall. Please submit a complaint if this is happening to your 2013 Ford Edge.

Door ajar signal stays on when door is closed, interior lights stay on, the door does not lock. The dome light stays on creating a safety hazard while driving at night. The false door ajar signal prevents the door from locking. This is a major safety issue. This happens both when stationary and while driving. Today November 11, 2016 is the fourth time I have taken in the car for the same issue.

While driving the car will suddenly lose power ( not accelerate ). The wrench light will come on. You must try to safely coast to side of road and turn ignition off and restart. This happens intermittently and is very dangerous in heavy traffic and at higher speeds. This has occurred on interstate highway and city driving. Dangerous also when there is not enough room to pull off road safely. We have taken car to Ford dealership but they cannot find problem. We have noted on the internet that a lot of other Ford Edge drivers are also having this issue. I would think that Ford motor company would be aware of this problem. I would hope that this issue will be addressed before someone is seriously injured or killed. This has happened 6 times from 11/30/2015. It also happened over a year ago 4-5 times and Ford could not find problem. Thank you.
