I was driving on the highway and there was a slight jolt. The service engine soon light came on and I lost all acceleration. When I stepped on the gas nothing what happening. I was able to coast to the shoulder and put the vehicle in park. In park the vehicle idled very rough. I turned the vehicle off and moments I tried to turn the vehicle and it took about 5 seconds for the vehicle to turn over, but when it did turn on the warning light was gone and the gas pedal worked. When I stepped on the gas the rpm's went up. I put the car in drive and it worked normal. I've read a about 100 reviews from three different websites from people who this same thing has happened. This seems to be a inherit and common problem.

2012 Ford Edge door latch, Ford Edge door ajar alert/notification - for the past several weeks 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. We have since bought the latch and repaired it. The part cost us $101. 15. We feel like we should be reimbursed for this. I loved my vehicle but have really gotten disappointed in it and Ford as a whole.

Door ajar and latch issue - the door ajar signal stays on when I close my door and then interior light stays on. I then am unable to lock the doors while being in the vehicle and I believe this has something to do with a faulty latch. When I move the latch with my fingers, the door ajar light will temporarily go off but sometimes will even come back on while my car is in motion. I bought the car in April and this is the first time this has occurred.

My 2011 Ford Edge inside interior light stays on for several minutes every time I get in the car, I guess its the sensor on my door but its happened on the back hatch door as well. On my dashboard it tell me that I have an open door which its completely closed but light stays on until I drive off. Or when I get out of the car and lock the doors the light stays on for several minutes, its draining my battery. When all of this happens I can not even lock my doors when I am driving the car, I need to lock my doors for safety purposes, my doors are always unlock because of this issue. Also, car alarm will engage when car is parked and locked.

Drivers side door says its ajar most of the time the lights in the car stay on and the other doors wont lock while in motion. Sometime the car says to stop and put it in park and shut the door but it is shut. I have seen this plastered all over the internet as I googled what is wrong with my car. All these newer cars with such issues which could be dangerous is scary.

Right before our 3 year warranty expired the "drivers door ajar" warning light came on. We checked it out and other items and all seemed to be ok. One or two days later it came on again and cleared when we shut the door several times. Now 8 days out of warranty it seems to come on almost all the time and won't clear. Also, the dome lights stay on too. I called the dealer and said it would cost me $125 bucks to diagnose plus repair. He said I could call Ford. I called Ford and spoke to kevin who created case # cas7689552, but got disconnected. His statement was to bring it in to a dealer and then they would decide what they would do for me after inspection. I really thought Ford would just fix this. I then called back and spoke to kendra who was nice but same thing. I asked her what she thought I could expect and she said in the best case I would be responsible for a portion of the bill. I looked online and saw one guy take the whole door off to fix and another who cleaned for a temp fix. There were a lot of other people reporting same problem. This has to be an engineering flaw and Ford knows this. It is also unsafe to drive after dark with your inside dome lights on and your door chiming. Please get a recall on this! I don't know what to do yet but I cannot afford a $500 repair bill on something so stupid as this. Shame on Ford.

My vehicle displayed the door ajar alarm after the door had been shut securely. This occurred intermittently for two days, and then began to occur every time I got in the vehicle. A couple days later it went back to being intermittent. I would not get the notification when I first got in the vehicle, but then the alarm would go off while I was driving.

I was driving home from work and the driver information center displayed "driver door ajar" when the door was definatly shut and locked. After a few minutes this alarm went away and it returned a few days later on my way to the store. The frequency of this problem has been increasing and now my car alarm sounds off seemingly at will, mid-day or midnight because the computer thinks someone opened the door without the key. Last night it was going off at 4am. I am concerned that interelated safety equipment might not function because the computer thinks the door is open. This problem also prevents the auto-lock function from working, so someone could open my door at a redlight or in traffic. The repair bill for this problem is just over five hundred dollars. This is clearly an example of inferior parts costing the defenseless consumer money and Ford motor CO. Repeat customers. If you do an online search, you will see that this is a common problem.

At first I noticed that even though the door behind the driver was properly shut the door ajar light was still on it was for a few days until now the interiors lights now won't go off when I leave the car and activate the alar.

Back door was not latching and unable to close. My vehicle had to be towed from my employment to my residence as the door kept popping open. Ford fixed the latch for 330. 00, the dealer special ordered a new latching system for my 2010 Ford Edge.

The driver door ajar sensor light is faulty. The sensor light will not go off and therefor the doors do not lock and the dome light does not go off. Took my car to the dealership and as soon as I told him the problem he told me what kind of car I was driving. This tells me that I'm not the only one with this problem. I feel as though there should be a recall as there is some danger that the doors do not lock.

When all the car doors are properly closed, the door ajar warning light comes on numerous times, and the frequency has increased, causing the doors not to lock.

I was driving down I-25 with my spouse doing apprx. 75mph when my sunroof exploded. We are fortunate no one was injured. Glass did fall on my head as I was taking it to the dealership. Ford refuses to cover it under warranty even though the dealership states it exploded from the inside. Ford does not know what caused the problem but just states it is not covered under warranty. If the covering was opened someone would have been seriously injured. This is a huge safety concern and has happened to several vehicles but Ford refuses to do a recall. It is going to take someone getting seriously injured before Ford recognizes the problem as a manufacturer defect.

As is common with the Ford Edge, the door ajar issue appeared on my car about a month ago. The dashboard indicates the driver door is open even when closed. This is a big headache as the alarm goes off every time your foot comes off the break after a stop. The keyless door locks also do not function with an "open" door. Beyond the headache, you have the safety issues. If the car thinks the door is open, the automatic door locks will not engage. Additionally, in the evenings the dome light will remain on because it thinks you are in the car with the door open. This could easily leave you stranded with a dead battery. I ended up taking it into a Ford dealership and was charged $560 to replace the latch.

The driver door ajar sensor turns on when the door is shut. The door can be closed multiple times but the door ajar sensor still believes the door is not shut. This causes the battery to drain.

Ford Edge suddenly lost power ( vehicle still running). No response from accelerator even though vehicle was still running. Had to roll to side of road (very unsafe). A warning light briefly came on showing ":awd off" and after a few seconds warning changed the "wrench" icon. This happened a second time just a few hours later. I scheduled appointment with dealer for the next day, and it happend again on the way to the dealer. Dealer ran codes, all passed and couldn't find issue. It happened again 10 miles after picking up from the dealer. Rescheduled for next day with dealer. Issue happened yet again on the way to the dealer. Once again dealer could not find issue or any error codes. In summary, it happened 5 times in less than 30 miles of driving. This vehicle is not safe to drive.

The car leaks water when it rains. There were puddles of water on the floor. . . The complete crumple zone was filled with water pushing up through the padding and carpet. Ford failed to put a necessary seal between the door and the front fender. In addition to the interior damages to the car, I am worried of the structure integrity of the crumple zone and frame caused by water sitting in the car for months.

Second time I will be taking my car in for service: driver side door ajar keeps coming on again. You have to slam the door hard to get it to shut off. It happens even when some one is exiting the passenger door and the driverside door ajar message will show up. Engine on message also shows up. You can click the ok for both messages but the doors don't autolock when you drive. Also the dome lights inside the vehicle takes a long time to shut off. The headlights will shut off when you shut off the car but the inside lights stays on. Sometimes I will turn the car back on so they shut off.

The door agar sensor is not going off when I shut the door I keep having to slam the door shut multiple times for it to turn off. When I get out of my car the door does not always latch and you can tell when you lock it. The door ajar signal stays on when I shut my door. The dome light stays on when I get out of my car telling me that it is still open and when I try to lock it it makes a double beep so its like its not locking my car.

Door ajar light stays on regardless of how many times I close the door. The door is closed but the sensor stays on and the light inside the car will not turn off (due to the car thinking the door is open)--not sure if the door does not close all the way. Seems unsafe to drive with the car this way since I don't know if it is securely closed.

Vehicle lost power, wrench light came on dashboard. Had to pull over out of traffic, shut off car and re-start. Happened 2 times since June 9, 2015. Car seems to run strangely, seems to surge or want to speed up a bit. 13no3 issue? seems to be something to do with the throttle body.

The 2015 Ford Edge (v6, awd) I have, has a motion-sensored tailgate that opens and closes with the wave of your foot underneath the rear bumper. While loading groceries and leaning into vehicle, the tailgate has randomly started to close on me. The first time it hit me in the head and continued to close, even though my body was still "leaning inside" the trunk area. There is not a sensor to detect that a person is still there and continued to close on me. I had to quickly Dodge out of the way to avoid the tailgate coming down on me. This has happened twice to me and once to my husband. Every occurence involved loading groceries. I have reported this to the dealership where I bought the vehicle and have an appointment to take it in for them to inspect. I told the service manager that this is a real safety issue as it could definitely hurt a child and/or adult when it occurs.

Door latch sensor is defective. "door ajar" light will go on, even when the door is properly closed. It is extremely distracting because it keeps beeping during driving and keeps telling me to shift to park while in motion.
