Failure Date: 12/07/2016

My driver door sensor constantly tells me that my driver door is ajar even when the door is completely shut, causing the doors not to lock, interior lights to stay on, a consistent beeping noise alerting me, and draining my battery several times. This is unsafe.

I bought this car 2015 in the late winter. From the time I bought it the drivers door sensor would say its ajar. According to the dealer it would be about $1000 to fix. Tonight my auto door unlock doesn't work and neither does the key unlock the door. I'm stranded 30 miles from home. This is totally unacceptable. I will be letting anyone who asks to be extremely cautious about any Ford products.

On 10-18-2016 our Edge lost all power on a residential street; speed reduced to 2 mph. We drove home; the vehicle was towed to dealership, & the electronic throttle body was repaired. On 11-15-16 the same thing happened, but this time we were in dallas on highway 289 in an interior lane at 55 mph. We slowed to 2 mph, but reached a parking lot. Ford dealer then replaced the throttle body and motor assembly. Ford knows of the throttle issue, and only replaces it after the second malfunction. This policy puts all Edge drivers at risk and should be changed to replace them immediately.

The driver's door ajar warning light and alarm goes off even when the door is securely latched. Slamming door doesn't help and interior light can stay on drawing down the battery. This is a safety issue since it can't be certain if the door is really closed. Alarm goes off every time car slows down or stops. This was a problem the day we purchased the vehicle and was repaired by the dealer that day. It began happening again last week.

Had the used Edge almost one year now and this is the 3rd third time taking to the dealership for the same blinking problem. It is a 3 year old car with only 40k miles. First time was annoying but the dealership was professional and fixed under warranty. Second time I was pissed because I had gotten online and did research about this apparently very obvious and common issue !!!!Ford!!!! and to top it off the warranty had just ran out so I was forced to pay a 100 deductible. I was really steamed by this point. And guess what now. . . Third time . . . The tech said well maybe it just a problem with the part? so I asked are the parts not covered he said just for 30 days !? seriously? I told them they are eating the cost on this not me. The dealer will be paying for the crappy part that doesnt last not me. I imagine I will be talking to the autonation owner at some point. . . This is so stupid. My wife was in downtown la in a parking garage and in traffic at night with unlocked doors and her interior light on because Ford is so ate up with profit that they will not fix this. All the dealerships should eat the cost every single time. . . Maybe once they do it something will be done. ,she is not driving the car until I get something done. Pos. Unbelievable that it takes this many repairs and complaints and nothing being done. I need to find out all the repairs on this car before I got it. . Bet I see the same issue with the prior owner. Same problem. While engine is on, car placed in drive, drivers door ajar lite is on and the doors all remain unlocked (not great with children in the car in parked traffic ) I live in la. The interior lite stays on as well and the chime stays on. Once parked and engine off, we all exit car and close doors and the door will not lock and the interior light stays on. . . Wonderful having your car parked on the road at nite like that here in la.

The latch door ajar sensor is not working properly and cannot recognize when the door is closed. This results in me being unable to lock my door and it leaves the dome lights on until it times out.

When the driver's door is closed securely the door ajar light and warning sound activate almost daily, more often on cooler mormings. After numerous attempts to close the door securely the problem persists and has been happening for several months. The door ajar warning also happens when the vehicle is in motion on city streets, highways and at all speeds without warning or as a result of unusual driving conditions. In addition, when the vehicle is in motion, all of the doors unlock when the door ajar warning activates and the interior dome light is enabled making the vehicle, in my opion, unsafe to drive and occupy. This problem is dangerous, especially at night and at highway speeds. Had I known of this problem existed before I purchased the vehicle I would not have purchased any vehicle made by Ford. I am now aware the problem is well documented and widely known on social media and through comments I have read on various consumer websites. I do not recall the first time this problem occured, but the last time was today while taking my daughter to school. I am requesting a recall for the entire door assembly that controls the door ajar warning system.

2007 Ford Edge transmission jolts after deceleration and pushing the gas again. This sometimes also is followed by sluggish behavior. Ford just keeps not finding nothing "wrong" even after inspection, replaced parts, and video of the events taking place. There are thousands of reports of similar issues online. Sounds like Ford needs a recall bad on the transmission issues! this event happens all the time. The throttle position sensor has been replaced. Ford says no problems exist.

The drivers side door ajar light comes on after the door is closed and the alarm sound comes on warning you of the door problem. This happens about two times a week and sometimes times you have to close the door about five times to correct the problem. Sometimes this happens when the car is being driven and I have to stop the vehicle to reclose the door.

I was driving on a back road but I was at an intersection and my car went into limp mode. I got bumped by other drivers and I had to make it to the break down lane. The car completely shutdown it was frightening. Ford said nothing was wrong when there clearly was.

Door ajar waring on dash appears with doors fully closed and keeps interior lights on for an extended period of time so that the car battery becomes drained. Took to dealer and was quoted $500 for the repair. Outrageous!.

I have been dealing with this door latch sensor issue for the duration of my ownership on my Ford Edge. I don't see how it is possible that our vehicles meet NHTSA standard federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) no. 206, door locks and door retention components. The testing for that standard would have been done in a laboratory, and it is apparent that contaminants out in the field are making their way into the door lock assembly and compromising the sensor - it is not a stretch to consider the latch itself may be deteriorating as well. There is no way to know if the door is fully shut. The interior lights coming on while driving at nighttime from the unpredictable sensor. I just replaced a battery 10/3/16, failed from the sensor draining it repeatedly, bought the largest capacity oem replacement I could get for it from from the dealer. While parked, even for hours and days on end untouched, the car will periodically sense the door is opened and closed (though it hasn't been), and the parking/convenience lighting will come on and go back off again.

Door ajar light remains on even though door is obviously closed. Interior light stays on until car accelerates beyond 5 mph (?) and door ajar light stays on for length of trip. 'shift to park' yellow warning appears whilst driving but stopped at a light. When closing and locking door after parking, car honks twice signifying unlocked door. Light stays on, possibly draining battery.
