Failure Date: 08/24/2016

The door open warning light stays on even when its closed, this is not allowing the doors to close properly , this also causes the panic alarm to go off and it keeps the dome light on while driving causing glare at night due to the bright dome light staying on. This also drains the batter due to the constant intirior lights staying on when the car is parked and closed.

Past year car warns to shift into park; although in park. Warning that drivers door is ajar, when it is closed. This causes the interior lights to stay on, cant lock the doors and causes my car alarm to go off at any given time. The dealer has been unable to fix. Please recall this. There and tons of complaints on this site and all over the internet. How can Ford ignore this???.

I am having the same problems as another 2008 Ford Edge driver described on the complaint/investigation page. I am actually going to copy and paste her complaint. Driving straight on freeway at 60 mph and the dash suddenly displays odo error. Wrench light, low tire pressure light, and air bag light come on. Speedometer shows 0 mph but tach still works. After I stop the car and try to take off again it has no pickup. Transmission seems to be stuck in 5th gear or overdrive. Tach goes up to 2500 rpm but vehicle barely moves. When I shift from park to drive or reverse the engine/transmission makes a horrible clunking noise that makes me think it will come out of the body. The only way I can get the car driveable again is to disconnect battery for a few minutes then reconnect. Everything resets and works but occurs again-sometimes a week later, sometimes a couple of months later. I am afraid to drive my car, and it also happened to my 17-year-old daughter last week. My husband had to go out and disconnect the battery to she could safely drive back home. And it is very random when it happens. I drive highways and county roads for work and sometimes there is nowhere to pull over! I'm a nurse and a paramedic. . . I dont want to be a patient! it has to be investigated and a fix found!!! I can't afford a new car. This is definitely a safety issue!! when the other driver talked about putting into gear after the restart, the vehicle literally lurches forward or backward!!! please help!.

As everyone else, loses acceleration, shut off and it seems fine later. High rpm no power, as if it cant shift. No error lights, shaking along with sputtering when it has a load. . . . . Very dangerous as I drive major highway daily. Has been happening more frequently now.

For about a month the door ajar signal stays on when door is closed. Interior light stays on. Not able to lock doors while in or outside of the vehicle. While driving (streets or highway) the shift to park indicator lights up, the door ajar indicator comes on, interior lights turn on, all the doors unlock and the door open chimes are heard. When I initially checked for recalls there are several internet stories from 2014 related to this issue on the Ford Edge. I was told about a recall that had been issued on Ford vehicles so I took my Edge to south bay Ford on Saturday, August 5, 2016. I was told that my Edge was not on the recall list. . Read more...

I encountered a sudden and inexplicable problem with my vehicle that involved the loss of the ability to accelerate. . . While I was in traffic on a busy road. The gear shift was still in the drive position when the incident occurred requiring me to drift into a driveway/parking lot, narrowly averting an accident. The vehicle stalled without warning while driving 25 mph. After restarting, the vehicle resumed normal operation. The failure recurred on a separate occasion. I googled this problem and it seems a lot of people having the same problem.

I Ford Edge has a bumping sound on the passagner side. It was a brand new vechile. But it made this noise. Come to find out after it broke down the throttle body and power train. I was told by the dealer that their was a recall by fcc said their was no recall. Fcc would not buy the car back. The dealership did "fix" it but what really is a fix ( a patch) which means it will break down again. The car would not crank or make any noises! it just stopped in a parking spot.

While driving on the freeway the car completely turned off three times. The message which appeared was "hill start unavailable". We had it towed to the dealer. We were told it was the throttle and told that they could not guarantee that it would not happen again.

Driver door ajar won't go out or comes on randomly wile driving and interior lights come on and won't go off. Dealer says it is not a safety issue? why can police ticket you for driving with interior lights on if it not a safety issue? why do the doors lock automatically if it is no a safety feature? 42,000 mi.

My car was parked in a parking garage to go to the gym for an hour. I come back to find the quarter window (truck side window) on the drivers side shattered for no reason at all. I made an insurance claim, but I still have to pay $500. 00 out of pocket for something that Ford should pay for.

The door latch on car says door is not closed. The lights stay on and the alarms sound. The door won't lock either. You have to close the door several times before it goes off. Several vehicles that are Ford have done this.

The car maintains a "door ajar" message (in reference to the driver door). The dashboard indicator light, cabin lights remain on while driving and I cannot engage the door lock on any door while in the vehicle. In addition, a warning sound continues to chime while I drive telling me the door is ajar. The door is in fact closed and I cannot get the dashboard indicator and sound to turn off while driving.

4 days ago I started my vehicle and put it in drive and it would not move. The engine icon came on and the message said something about "power accessory ", it did not last long enough for me to read it. The same thing happened again today as I was driving in reverse out of a driveway that was on an incline. I lost all power and had no control of the vehicle. It was very scary. Again the power accessory notice flashed. Both times I had to turn the vehicle off and restart and it was fine. I only have 1400 miles on this vehicle and bought it with 600 miles on it about a month ago. This is crazy.

The driver door ajar sensor always says my driver door is open no matter how many times I close it. Because the car thinks the door is open I can't lock the car doors therefore I can't go anywhere. The sensor also makes the interior lights go on and they don't shut off. It makes it very dangerous driving at night. It just started happening after I started my car and left for work.

When the door is shut the door ajar light stays on, which then causes the interior light in the car to stay on. I have to open and shit the door multiple times to try and get they door ajar light to shut off so the doors can lock and I can drive.

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.
