Failure Date: 07/16/2016

Car wil gradually slow down leading to a complete stop. Power to the engine seems to decrease and speed slows. Happened 4 times over several weeks. It would happen then an hour later car would be completely fine and drive ok for a few days and then happen again. Happened when the car was driving at 30-50 mph on normal city streets (not highway) we took it to the dealer, where they identified the throttle body as the cause of the issue. Our VIN is not eligible for the replacement program though; which we do not understand - meets the year/make/model and characteristics of issue. Ever since we purchased the car we have also had lingering electrical issues - separate of the throttle body, that no one has been able to identify -- drive door light says open and it's not, taillights randomly flash when car is off and no one is in car, etc. We are thinking this one was just a dud. We also own another Ford Edge 2014 model - no issues. Car is currently being repaired for the throttle body issue. We can provide receipts / info once we pick it up. Called Ford and they said that vehicles identified for the recall were based on date of manufacture and location - they must've missed us.

The driver door ajar warning stays on and will not shut off even when door is shut and the doors will not lock. This is when the vehicle is moving. The warning tells you to put the vehicle in park even when driving down the road. It makes a signal sound that will not stop. The inside light will not shut off. Will it run the battery down?.

Drivers door ajar display is on when the door is closed. Takes multiple attempts to close door for the display light to go away. When light is on, doors won't lock and do not know if a real door ajar message is valid. Also, car loses power when driving. Just loses power and is extremely dangerous if you can't get off the road in time before getting hit. Have read many complaints about both safety issues with the Edge, door lock sensor and halfshaft retention circlip coming loose.

The door ajar switch is not working correctly, my interior and exterior lights stay on after I lock the doors, the door ajar chime rings the whole time I'm driving. This impedes visibility, attention, and could have adverse safety consequences.

Driver door ajar light stays on due to a faulty switch within the door. This is a serious safety concern as the doors won't lock while driving and the interior lights stay on which is dangerous when driving at night. This is an ongoing issue and Ford fails to acknowledge the issue. There should be a recall issued to correct this problem.

Drivers door shows ajar when door is actually closed. This is definitely a safety issues as the doors will not lock when this is happening. Battery will die because the dome lights will not go off when vehicle is parked. This is an issue and these cars need to be recalled. Just purchased car.

The faulty door closed switch and/or design is indicating the drivers side door is open when it is not. This issue is causing all the doors to remain unlocked while driving or unlock during driving if it goes off. This problem has been addressed by the Ford dealership twice and now it is out of warranty they do not want to fix it. It needs to be recalled.

Driving down the road and the vehicle suddenly went to idle. Had to coast to a stop on the side of the road. The car was still idling but when I tried to give it gas, nothing happened. I shut the car off, restarted and it worked fine. Approx. 10 miles later, did the same thing. Car only has 9,200 miles. I drive the interstate daily and this is going to be very dangerous if it happens there. Will be at the dealer at 9:00am sharp tomorrow.

I have had my 2011 Ford Edge in to the dealer to repair the door ajar light three times now. They repaired it the previous two times and now they are saying it requires new door latches. This is a safety issue. I've research this and there are a number of complaints about this problem. The door will not lock when the light is on. . The dome light stays on and runs the battery down. After seeing the number of instances of these problems I'm shocked there has not be a recall.

Electronic throttle body failure resulting in loss of power . Engine stalled while in heavy traffic. Driver and 3 passengers endangered while turning left across 2 lanes of oncoming traffic, vehicle stalls creating a deadly situation.

The drive side door keeps saying ajar no matter how many times you close it. This causes a variety of issue because it is a sensor problem. The car will ding thinking that keys are not in the ignition and at times have caused the door not close. This also cause the interior lights to stay on when all doors are closed. This happens both when the vehicle is in motion and in park.

My front driver side door ajar warning light stays illuminated whether the door is closed hard or soft, and completely closed. Once I reach speeds of 10mph while driving, the automatic locking feature does not work. If I push the lock button while driving, the doors automatically unlock. The warning light is constantly illuminated and my interior lights stay on for several minutes after my car is turned off even though the door is closed which is depleting my battery. This is a safety concern because I have 2 young kids behind these doors I cannot lock.

My car keeps shutting off while driving. I searched online and there are multiple sites that indicate there was a recall on the electric throttle body. Ford says my VIN is excluded from this warranty. I feel this needs to be looked at since it may be affecting a wider range than previously discovered.

The driver side door ajar light remains on even when the door is closed. The dealership notified me of the locking sensor/assembly being faulty and that I need to have this changed because the battery can drain. Repairs cost about $400 since I was 3,000 miles beyond of the warranty.

The front drivers door ajar warning will intermittently display, even while the door is closed. We have opened and re-closed the door with efforts to remove the alert on the dash to no avail. We informed our local Ford dealer, who said they can correct this by replacing the door latch inside of the door for $375, to which I replied no. They then said they could do it for $325, to which I declined again. They said there is no recall, nor is it covered under warranty. Aside from the message on the dash, no other issues have occurred. I. E. Lights on, battery dead. . . . Yet.
