Failure Date: 03/15/2015

Driver door latch assembly failure results in a driver door ajar warning. Door is latched at least enough to stay shut, however, the warning stays on. As a result, the auto door lock at 10mph does not happen. If you use the door lock push button, the doors lock and then immediately unlock. The only way to lock them is to push down each on the door buttons. Small children or babies in the back seat can't and the driver can't reach all the doors. Not a good situation. Also, every time you stop, for instance at a light, another warning to put the car in park occurs when you release the brakes. Another distraction. Dealer says part is on backorder. This, along with all the web instances, indicates a widespread problem with the door latch assembly on Edge and Lincoln. A recall seems to be in order as the design is faulty in today's world! carb cleaner and wd 40 worked for a few times for a few days but now problem is solid. The latch spring appears to be broken and/or a faulty sensor - all part of the same assembly.

The door latch on the 2013 Ford Edge is faulty, and continually has to be replaced. This is the second time in 6 months we have had to have this replaced, and this time, we are 3000 miles over our warranty, and are having to go out of pocket for this - an expense of over $300. Additionally, because the door latch doesn't work correctly, it continually causes the interior lights of the cart to stay on, which has caused the battery to deplete, and we are now facing the charge for a new battery as well in order to get our vehicle in working order. Lastly, Ford informed us today that the factory battery that they installed is "too small" for this size vehicle, and a larger capacity battery should be put in its place. We purchased this car new, and issues like this make us feel as if we've purchased a lemon. Ford is now charging us for a part that is clearly poorly manufactured, and as a consequence, causing us to buy additional parts like batteries to support their mistakes.

Ford Edge sport 2012. Driver side door lock actuator fails and/or gives false readings. Driver side console displays door open indicator.

I pulled over and opened/closed the door to clear the message.

I was driving and all of a sudden the vehicle started idling high and sputtering. Then the check engine light came on. The engine just shut off. Luckily there was no one behind me. I could have been rear-ended. This is third time this has happened. The first time it happened I took it to Ford and they said there was no code to tell them what was wrong with it. They replace the throttle body sensor and check engine light was gone, but a few hours later it came back on and it stalled on me again. I wasted a couple of hundred dollars to end up right back where I was before with a very unsafe vehicle. If I could afford to get another vehicle, I would. I am afraid to drive this vehicle. Something has to be done before someone is injured or killed.

Door latch does not register the door as being closed. This results in the door ajar indicator being lit when the door is locked. This impairs the ability to drive at night as the interior lights will not turn off.

The driver door latch sensor went bad. It keeps saying that the door is ajar. When it is not. This is a real safety issue. For example, what if I don't close my door completely, I would expect this warning to come on. But right now the door warning is always on. So I really don't know if my door is properly closed or not. So far I am "slamming my door shut" to ensure that it is properly closed.

My drivers door appears to not be closing but I know it is shut. The doors sensor shows on the dashboard that the door is open. I have to slam the door several times to get it to shut. This is a problem because the doors will not lock if I am driving down the road. This can be very dangerous when traveling. I would love to see a recall on this because I have done nothing and I was told by my local Ford dealership that I will have to pay $370. 00 to get it fixed and I just don't see that as fair and reasonable.

Drives fine and that at times acts as if it is stuck in gear or neutral. I bought the car as a certified pre-owned and within one year had total transmission failure. Warranty company replaced, and now the transmission is acting as if it is stuck in gear inconsistently. Sometimes it drive perfect and then when I am drive around town it acts as if it is stuck in gear.

While driving 25-40 mph, the car went into limp mode, no acceleration at all. "yellow wrench" light came on the instrument panel. I was stuck in the intersection, making a left hand turn across two lanes of oncoming traffic, and I could not move the car. The engine did not turn off or stall. I just had no power or ability to accelerate. I was finally able to roll into a safe spot, out of traffic and harms way. I turned the car off and waited a few minutes to restart. When I restarted it, the wrench light was off and the car ran fine. This happened twice, two nights in a row, so I had it towed to the dealer the next day. They were not able to find any problems with the car and wanted me to just take it as is. I mentioned that I had read about issues with the electronic throttle body, and they said it seemed fine. How can they allow me to take a car that is so unsafe to drive? I could have been hit, and the person that hit me could have been killed. I called Ford customer relations, regarding an investigation on this problem, and they were required to do a "customer satisfaction program;. But my VIN did not fall into this program. I paid to have the etb replaced, out of pocket, and am hoping that this is the problem. Very unsafe situation to be put in by Ford.

I was driving up hill at 40mph, I first noticed my rpms dropping, then my speed. Came home and called dealership, as my vehicle is under warranty, car was towed to fairfield Ford. They called later to tell me it was the throttle body assembly and he took it apart and cleaned it. He said at this time, it was fine. Of course, this was the one thing not covered by the extended warranty. Within 2 weeks, the same thing happened again. It was intermittent. So I had my mechanic replace the part.

Door ajar warning (on screen as well as repeated bell noise) came on while I was on a 2 lane road with no shoulders available due to snow alongside road. I was forced to stop in middle of road to open and close door repeatedly to turn off door ajar. It felt like door was closed but sensor kept indicating it was open. Problem abated for a few days but has come back now.

My 2011 Ford Edge currently has 59000 miles on it. The door ajar light will not go off. I have taken it to the dealership to be checked out. They said it was not covered in warranty and that there is a TSB on it- TSB-14-0083. Apparently this is a common issue. I am not able to lock my doors properly in the vehicle. My alarm will randomly go off in the middle of the night because its sensing that the door is open when it isn't. I will not pay to have this replaced when it is very evident that this is a "known issue" as my service advisor told me. This needs to be recalled because of the safety issues that are presented when you can't lock your doors.

I get a door ajar warning when the door is actually closed; the lights won't go off, nor the doors lock. I feel very unsafe with the doors not being able to lock. Plus it doesn't help the batter life much either.

Door ajar warning light comes on when door is fully shut, dome lights stays on and cannot lock car. I can open and shut it to turn off warning but then it pops on again.

Failure Date: 01/01/2015

The door ajar sensor/switch is not functioning properly and shows that the driver side door is open/ajar when it is securely closed. When the car "thinks" the door is ajar the dome light does not turn off for several minutes, even while driving, the power locks will not engage and even unlock when the door lock switch is used. In addition, every time the car comes to a stop the alert chimes that the door is ajar. This is very dangerous when having to drive to my work in an urban area (not safely locked in my car) in addition, it is too dangerous to drive with children who may be able to reach the door handle.

I filed the original complaint (10680995) on February 3rd, but I wanted to edit or update it, but couldnâ´t find the way, so I am taking the liberty to post a new one. It has been 2 and a half months since the incident and as a disgrace it has not been possible for the Ford dealer in central America to get the computer module part. Can you imagine this amount of time without your vehicle, specially if it is your working tool? the following was my statement in the first report: "I have a 2007 Ford Edge with very low mileage to date. This is usually my family car, driven by my wife. We live in guatemala and drove to a house on the beach, that is about 100 miles away. On January first when we were returning I started the car and noticed a shake and sputter, and I thought that it was probably a defictive spark plug. I managed to drive out of where we were and as soon as we got to the main highway I had to stop and call for a tow. The shaking and sputtering were frightening. The shop I took it to says that at least 3 ignition coils need to be replaced and are not sure if the pcm also has to be replaced. Unfortunately, since there are parts stock problem here, I had to wait almost a month to get the parts and now that I have them (the coils) I still have to wait to see what the real problem is. I have contacted the dealer in the region to see what can be done. I had to report this as it is not a unique problem tobuyers in the us, also abroad". So far, I do not know when the part will be available. Last Friday it was still in cackorder in the Ford plant, or so they say. I donâ´t know either how much is going to cost, but at this rate I just want to get rid of that piece of junk. I have provided a florida contact as there is no access to other countries.
