The door ajar light will come on along with interior light at random times. It happens when first entering the vehicle in the morning and also when driving at all times through the day. The only fix we've found is slamming the door shut a few times.

I have had an ongoing problem with the wrench looking light coming on then the vehicle loses power. When I push the gas you have to push the gas pedal all the way down to get it to creep to go to the side of the road. I have to pull over and shut the vehicle off when it restarts then the vehicle will go. This last time the vehicle got me stranded on the side of the road for 2. 5 hours until the tow truck got there and towed it to the dealership. The dealer started it two days late and everything was fine. I had it to the shop previously to try and get this diagnosed and they could not find the problem. I have read hundreds of complaints involving the same thing. Ford should look at what is causing this problem and open a claim to take care of these issues.

The driver door latch has a switch to indicate if the door is open or closed. This switch is failing and indicating that the door is ajar regardless of the actual status. This prevents the ability to lock the car doors while driving the vehicle, and obscures albeit does not prevent the ability to recognize other open doors. Dealer indicates that this is a common issue.

The door ajar light started coming on and is now on constantly. Since the door ajar light won't go off my console light stays on as well. I have found nothing to fix this issue except for completely replacing it. It's not a cheap fix.

Driving along and the car lost power, wrench light came on. We shut car off and it started and we resumed driving. The next day it happened 5 times. Called Ford and they were no recalls but if you look on line there are many complaints about this issue which can cause someone's life! I believe this should be a reacall by Ford. I called Ford and received a case number cas 5561560 the part (thrrottle) cost 600 to fix since it was not covered. I hope that there is no fatalities with this issue before Ford recognizes it!.

The rear window of vehicle shattered simultaneous to turning the ignition switch. There was no impact to the window; it just shattered. Nothing dropped from the sky; the vehicle was parked in the driveway well away from traffic both vehicle and pedestrian. I repeat it just spontaneously shattered. There is only two thousand miles on this vehicle. This should not have happened.

Driver door sensor states door is ajar when it is not.

This has now happened to me three times and all three times were during rush hour traffic and I was lucky to not be hit from behind. I will be driving and I suddenly get a wrench light on my dash board and then lose the ability to accelerate my car and it basically coasts to a stop and I can feel a shaking/rumbling from the engine. When I put the car in park and turn it off, I can turn it back on and it is like nothing happened and the light goes away and I can continue driving home. I called the dealer and they said they can only fix it if they see the wrench light on so they can pull the code, meaning I have to have my car towed to the dealer while still on. Only problem is every time it has happened has been after work at night when the dealers are already closed. I am now nervous every time I drive the car and am afraid to get on highways.

2012 Ford Edge door latch, Ford Edge door ajar alert/notification - for the past several months the notification system thinks a door is ajar when in fact it is not. There are dozens of forums regarding this very same issue and that direct people file a complaint with this website; as most believe Ford should recall said vehicles to correct the manufacturing error that is so blatantly apparent.

The latch sensor telling the car that the door is ajar is sticking. It won't allow the doors to lock because it thinks the door is still ajar. The interior lights stay on which also drain the car's battery. The fact that my car doors won't lock as a result of this sensor issue is a safety issue for all that encounter it.

The driver side door ajar sensor is malfunctioning. Even though door appears closed, the sensor indicates it is not closed. This results in the dome lights being on, even when driving at night, making it difficult to see the road. It also regularly tells me to put the car into park, even when driving 65 mph down the road.

I was driving my 2011 Ford Edge down a busy high traffic area going 45 mph and my car started shaking the tool light came on the dashboard and it just stopped in the middle of the road, someone almost rear ended me people were honking, I still had all power but my acceleration just stopped, pulled over to the side with the emergency flashes on turned the car off and sat for a minute I restarted it and drove it home, it did the exact same thing two days later. I called my extended warranty company and proceeded to take it to the dealership. I told them after doing research I thought it was the throttle body. They checked it out and said it was a bad mass sensor, fixed it and said I was good to go. I picked up the car and two days later it did the same thing, car shook, tool light came on, then I lost acceleration, coasted into a parking lot, happened 2 more times again. I took it back to the dealership they said no codes were coming up so they couldn't fix anything. I said well obviously something is wrong, I suggested the throttle body they said no codes came up, nothing they can do, again I said something is wrong its not safe to drive! he said unless the code comes up Ford will not let them replace anything. I asked him what the solution is he had nothing. He said unless it happens while they test drove it there is nothing they can do. So im stuck with a faulty car with no solutions.

The door sensor erroneously indicates door ajar. This prevents the door locks from actuating and allows children to accidently open door when moving. Also the dome lights stay on at hours of darkness, impeding visibility.

Failure Date: 10/16/2014

When driving all o a sudden the truck speedometer goes blank, the odometer drops to zero and the wrench, airbag and eventually the tire pressure lights illuminate. When pressing the accelerator the car struggles to accelerate because it starts losing power. I then have to pull off the road, turn the car off and allow the car to reset itself. I turn the car on, the lights are out but when I try to accelerate there is still little power so I have to press the accelerator to the floor an then the power kicks in and the car operates normal. This is a safety hazard because it has happened to me 4-5 times, on the highway. This is a safe hazard because it can potentially cause a tragic accident.

I was turning a corner slowly when the car halted abruptly and slid slightly on the gravel road. I was surprised and got out of the car and observed the front driver side wheel was askew and not mounted onto the car. The ball joint was broken totally apart. The axle was broken, I had not hit anything in the road. The roadway was clear. The front driver side ball joint and axle had broken apart. The car had to be towed to a garage. The Ford garage said there was no manufacturer recall on the ball joint. This event could have resulted in serious injury or death. I feel fortunate to be uninjured but I want this event noted because I have seen that you investigated the Ford Edge 2007 for this failure in 2009. Please reopen this investigation.

While driving on the 56 freeway with only less than a one minute warning of a orange color wrench on the left side of the wheel which went on. I lost all power to my 2011 Ford Edge including break, accelerator you name it no power what so ever. I was so lucky I was able to make it to the shoulder very scary. I have owned many cars, but never experiences something so scary. This is the second time this has happened the first time was on 10/6/2014. Both times I took it to my local Ford dealership location the first time they had my car for 2 full days and were unable to determine the problem. The second time I picked up my car after 1 full day and I was instructed that they contacted Fords main office regarding this matter. I was told on the phone by staff that I can come and pick up my car, but I will need to have a computer attached to it. I said while why cant you just keep the vehicle until you find the problem and give me a rent a car. "my local dealership said absolutely not". I picked it up at 420pm on 10/17/14 they gave me no paperwork like they did when I dropped it off, but gave me instructions on how to use this computer thing they installed in my car. With the following instructions I was to hit the red button when my car runs funny, or looses power. I can only press it 4 times no more than 4 times. I told the staff member at the local dealership that instructed me that I am scared. Eventhough, my local Ford dealership knows that I am scared they still released the car to me! please help our family with this matter regarding the safety of the 2011 Ford Edge.

Instrument panel continuously reports driver's door is ajar when it is closed. This prevents the doors from locking (can't prevent children from opening doors while vehicle is in motion). Also, this causes the instrument panel to continuously ask the driver to shift to park when coming to a stop. Also, this causes the interior lighting to fail to dim until the car is in forward motion.

I was driving on the city streets and without any warning, the power steering kicked out. I didn't realize this and was already committed to making a right turn. I had to use all my strength to make the turn and stay on the road. After clearing the intersection I noticed the car was not accelerating, instead it was decelerating. The car came to a complete stop on the main road. I quickly put on my blinkers. The car then gave a "low engine oil pressure" error message. I put the car in park, waited a minute, and restarted w. I would have had a big problem if the car stalled out in the left turn or if I couldn't overpower the steering components and went off the road.

Will be driving along at any speed and car will not accelerate, it does not stall but wrench light comes on and you can't do anything until you shut off the car and restart it. This has happened numerous times and hasn't caused an accident yet, but most certainly will eventually. This problem is well known, but is phrased as stalling when it truly doesn't stall, accelerator just doesn't work and car slows down quickly in traffic.

Driving through parking lot when shift between gears becomes very rough. Engine revs- but car has no forward movement. We were able to get the car in reverse, and back in to a parking space. We shut the car off- turned the car back on and the issue was resolved- still shifted a little hard.

This is the fourth occurrence of this situation. The first three times, I have taken it to the dealer and their response is that they cannot replicate the problem. The problem is the vehicle will shut off while in motion. It does not matter the speed, the weather conditions, the amount of gas, the weight of the keys in the ignition. I have tried everything to ensure the issue will not happen, yet, it continues. The car shuts off, power steering is unavailable, the computer system goes blank, the tool light comes on the left side of my dash, and the vehicle begins to sputter. Luckily, all four times I have been able to get over and shut the car off. I then restart and drive to the dealer. This is extremely dangerous and could potentially be fatal, depending on the surroundings. I have been to three different dealerships and no one will help me. The Ford corporate offices have been unhelpful, suggesting that the next time this happens, I should call a tow truck. I should not have to wait for the next time in a dangerous situation like this.

While driving - even though the driver door is completely shut, the driver door ajar warning sign appears on the dashboard screen accompanied by the sound of a chime. Sometimes when you open and shut the driver door whether while still driving or if and when you find a side of the road space, the warning sign disappears. But oftentimes, it takes 3 or four tries to make it disappear. Sometimes the driver door ajar warning comes with an instruction to shift to p (park) . . . . Which is helpful if you can find a side of the road spot otherwise the instruction will just confuse a novice driver and could potentially create an accident. I search the internet and found this problem is very common with Ford Edge. I feel that this problem could potentially create an accident and warrants a recall.

This is the second time I have experienced a complete loss of acceleration. I brought my car to local Ford dealer about a month ago and they installed a software update and said that should fix the problem but the problem occurred again today. Luckily both times I was in a place where I was able to pull off the road. These are the symptoms: 1. Sudden and complete loss of acceleration while traveling at speed 2. Wrench icon showed up on the dashboard display 3. Coasted to stop and applied brake (car began to shake) 4. Shifted to park and shut car off 4. Restarted car and everything back to normal. The problem is that Ford states they cannot replicate it and once the car has been restarted the wrench icon and problem go away. They say that once the wrench icon goes away the computer doesn't store the error code and therefore will not show them the problem. They tell you to drive the car to the dealer while the wrench icon is still on the dashboard but that would be impossible unless it happened right next to the dealer.

While driving in poway at 45 mph with only less than a one minute warning of an orange color wrench light showing up. My Ford Edge lost all power 100% including breaks, accelerator you name it the power was lost. So I then took it to the dealership on 10/7/2014 after they had it for 2 full days. They said we cannot determine what it was the service man even stated that they attached it to diagnostic computer and were unable to determine what was wrong. Then gave me paperwork and told me if it happens again to bring it back and sure enough it did on 10/15/14 while I was on the 52 freeway the same thing. Please help me and my family have Ford address this problem this car is unsafe for my family as well as others on the road there is no telling when all power is going to be last 100%.
