On the stated date, my son pulled the handle to release the passenger side front door and the door did not open. I have traced the problem to a defective door latch mechanism. The cable is intact and the problem is inside the door latch. I am of the opinion that this is a safety issue and not one that I the consumer should have to bear the burden of parts and labor.

I am the owner of a 2013 Ford Edge limited and know numerous other Ford Edge owners with this same issue. The driver's door ajar sensor fails and shows the warning light that the door is ajar when shut. Now doors won't lock while driving, interior lights momentarily stay on and the alarm beeps ( warning that the door ajar is keeping it from setting properly. The interior dome light stays on and so does my rear cabin light. Both lights stay on as I'm driving. It is a safety issue! when I looked online, I found that it is a wide spread problem.

My transmission is being replaced at 96,400 miles. I've been having intermittent problems where it would clunk when shifting to the next gear. I've paid hundreds of dollars between 2 Ford dealerships and 2 automotive repair shops just to try to figure out what the issue is. But last week as I started my 30 mile drive home, my car stopped shifting. Now I'm paying roughly $5,000 to get a transmission in my car. On top of paying $200 for a rental car during all of this. This vehicle needs to be recalled!.

I believe the electronic throttle body has failed as the Edge has similar malfunctions as other Fords affected by the defective throttle body. The Edge dies in the middle of driving and display a wrench on the sync system.

Driver door ajar warning popped up when I got into my car in the morning. Closed it multiple times but would not go away and interior lights remained on. Dealership stated there is a TSB for this issue and they will need to remove door panel, lubricate mechanism and reset mechanism. Car was fine. Next day, driver door ajar lit up while driving. Was unable to get warning to go away. Interior lights remain on. Mechanism is stiffer now and locked into place when I was trying to get the warning to go away and I was unable to close the door. After a unlocking/locking, opening door handle, finally was able to get mechanism to move so the door could be closed. Interior lights remained on because warning light remains. I paid $100 warranty deductible to get it fixed and now it is worse. Ford - report as recall and fix this!! what if it gets stuck again while I am in the car? I will not be able to get out by driver side door. I also don't want to be stuck with a dead battery. I am female!!.

With all doors closed the drivers side locking mechanism failed causing the cabin lights to come on and and the system to start ringing. When the cabin lights came on they caused temp blindness and I swerved almost hitting pedestrians. This is a safety hazard also all doors unlocked when this happened I fear spmeone with children would find this alarming due to the fact that their children could easily open the door because of the doors being unlocked. After my incident I have to close the door multiable times for it to finally work sometimes slamming it which could cause my window to shatter but its the only way it works. I feel that Ford has put a sub par latch on these cars and have looked up online to see if I was the only one having this problem and found out that 1 out of five Edge owners have the same problem. I tried contacting Ford they just advise me to go to my local dealership which I did but I didnt have the $400 required to fix a problem that should have been fixed at the get go. I motion for a recall on this part.

The door ajar sensor is malfunctioning. When the door is closed the sensor is on and I am unable to lock the vehicle. If I park the car the dome light will stay on and run the battery down unless I close the door multiple times over and over again.

Driver door ajar sensor malfunction. You must close door multiple times before the door ajar alarm goes off. Sometimes you can't make it go off and the dome lights stay on, alarm dings. When parking car and getting out, you can't lock doors, dome light stays on. Very frustrating. Ford dealer says this is a common issue. Car out of warranty. Very expensive to have fixed.

The driver door sensor is not functioning properly. The door never registers as "closed" and as such it intermittently sets off the car alarm and drains the battery when the car is not in use.

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.

The driver door ajar sensor is malfunctioning causing multiple problems. Doors don't lock automatically when in motion. It causes cabin lights to remain on once driving lights are on creating visibility issues. This also causes some of the door locking options to malfunction. When driving or stopped it generates false alarms or warnings.

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.

Pulling out of a parking lot turning right tried to accelerate significant amount of traffic behind me after turning and I couldn't go anywhere. Pulled into the nearest parking lot approx. 50 feet or more piled into parkin spot. Then sat for a couple inured wrench illuminated on dash board. Tried to back up to straighten vehicle and it made a loud clunk noise when putting in reverse. After turning off car went to restart after 30 minutes car made loud clunk again without being in gear. At this time it isn't a recalled item just. TSB and not getting any resolution as to why this isnt a recall item. Approx. 45 minutes prior to this incident I was on the highway driving the speed limit. What would have happened if the failure occurred at this point. Thank god it didn't as I wouldn't be writing this letter. For the safety of others this should be considered a recall item.

The driver's side door sensor is not working. Door shows open, and the interior lights won't turn off. Won't lock doors and several other problems. From all the feedback I've read, sure would like to see Ford do the right thing and issue a recall on this problem. Thanks!.

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.
