Failure Date: 03/20/2017

Driving in middle lane on highway during rush hour and suddenly lost acceleration. Thankfully I was able to avoid being rear ended and coast to shoulder of highway. After turning the car on anf off a couple of times, the car responded when I pushed accelerator. I was able to drive a 1/10 of a mile to a Lincoln dealer and leave my car there. After googling the issue, I see many people have had this issue with Fords, some have been recalled, some have had warranties extended to fix. . (even a class action law suit exists!) but, I received no notification from Ford that this could be an issue. I also discovered that quite a few people say they were in accidents due to this issue. This is extremely dangerous and I narrowly escaped causing a multi car accident!! Ford needs to be forced to fix this issue immediately and to notify all those in danger before someone gets killed!!.

The driver side door sensor does not register the door as closed when it is. The dash warning light comes on and stays on and the interior lights do not shut off. The driver side door has to be closed up to 30 times before the sensor registers the door as closed. The dash warning remains lit and "shift to park" comes on when coming to a stop at a light.

Door ajar latch/sensor continues to stick which keeps the door ajar light on and keeps the interior lights and park lights on after turning off car, closing door, and locking car. Interior lights and park lights are hard to notice during daylight hours and this results in draining battery which leaves the owner stranded. This happens repeatedly!.

Yesterday, I reported issue with driver side "door ajar" indicator light not turning off. Took the car to Ford dealer today and was told, upon inspection, that the passenger side "door ajar" switch is also beginning to fail. They wanted over $500 to fix each switch. If both door parts are failing at the same time, this is not a coincidence. I informed them that I researched the issue and found that the nhtsb re-opened investigation into this issue after receiving more than 1500 complaints and they said that they weren't told to issue a recall yet, so the repair is not covered. These parts are obviously defective- why are customers having to pay out of pocket for repairs?? bad enough we suffer the inconvenience of being without cars for repair time. Nhtsb needs to step in and force Ford to issue a recall. Obviously Ford will not do it on their own.

Back up camera is only working intermittently and if the camera does work- most of the time the image is upside down. Upon researching this issue online I found that many others are experiencing this issue. Many suggesting resetting the mytouch system to factory settings to reset camera. I did this- it did not work. Brought car to dealer today and was told camera s bad- cost of new camera $790!!! if this is an issue for many people Ford should be assisting with repairs and fixing issue.

2011 Ford Edge door ajar light remains on even when door is shut tightly. This keeps dome lights on in car and kills the battery. Had to slam car door 20 times tonight when I arrived home to get light to go out. Searched internet and saw that many people are having this issue and that in oct 2016 NHTSA launched investigation into this after of 1500 complaints! called Ford service they said there no recall on this, so no customer service assistance. Told me to go to dealer and have problem diagnosed. Told to keep receipt because if recalled in future you can be reimbursed. How can they ignore some many complaints?? some internet posts about issue claimed their door opened while driving. . . This is very scary!.

My 2013 Ford Edge was recently serviced to correct a problem which was the car alarm coming on and random times and an interior light coming on to say driver door ajar. This door ajar light has been coming off and on for over a year, I just lived with it. Would slam the door while driving to see if it would go off. Annoying. The Ford dealership in roseburg or did my service work as they do since I have purchased the car from them. Looking online, I see that this problem with a failed driver door latch is something many Ford owners have complained about. I feel that Ford has been aware of this problem with their product and I don't feel that us vehicle owners should be the ones footing the bill to get a new latch installed to fix their problem!! I paid $555 to get this problem diagnosed and a new latch installed. The part itself was $214. 70 and the rest was for labor and the diagnosis. Seems very, very high price to pay for this problem that Ford should be paying for.

2013 Ford Edge has a continual problem where door sensors on 2 of 4 doors indicate that the door is ajar, when it is actually closed. The interior lights come on (and stay on) when starting the car or when driving at low speed, which is dangerous, particularly as it interferes with night vision. The doors won't lock due to this warning message. The driver's door is affected by this sensor problem, which also causes a bell warning that the door is ajar, and repeated dash warnings to put the car in park. Repeatedly slamming the door closed temporarily helps, sometimes. The driver's door sensor was fixed (but not replaced) while the car was under warranty. The problem returned within a few months. When I took it in the second time, I had the driver's door sensor cleaned (the dealer wanted almost $400 for this, but reduced it to $260 after my complaint, vs $500 to replace each sensor) which was helpful for less than 2 months. This is a dangerous, known problem with these defective door sensors that is highly distracting for drivers, which interferes with night vision, and the ability to lock the car doors while driving. The Ford dealer acknowledged that this is a known problem, but will not repair it for free (no recall issued). These door sensor errors happen every time I drive this vehicle currently (80,500 miles), whereas it was a frequent yet intermittent problem from about 30,000 to 60,000 miles. The interior lights come on when starting the car, as they should, then the warning messages come on on the dash, and both the lights and the warnings stay on when driving at low speeds. Sometimes the interior lights and warnings will come on while driving at normal speeds, for no apparent reason; when this happens at night, it is very dangerous. Ford needs to recall this part and protect drivers.

Driver side door ajar when doors closed. Shift to park comes on. Makes this very dangerous in the event of a real occurrence of the door not being closed properly. Takes several slams of the door to sometimes fix it. Sometimes it does not take care of the situation. Happens when in motion and not or slowing down to a stop sign or traffic light. Ford needs to make a recall on this as many others are affected.

Driver side door latch warning even when door is latched and closed properly. Have already taken it to dealer for a "fix" approximately 1 year ago, and now it started again. Door open sensor stays on, dome light stays on and doors cannot be locked.

I have been having a problem with the driver's door of my '13 Ford Edge limited indicating that it is ajar (warning and interior lights on) when it is not. In order for it to quit, I have to either very firmly close the door (slam it) or open and close it a few times until it senses that it is in fact fully closed. It is also draining my battery because when I exit the vehicle sometimes the interior lights stay on. There have been a few occasions that I had to jump start my car. The door ajar light stays on when the vehicle is parked and in motion.

My car has been at Ford service for the past 7 days waiting for parts. This is the second time it's been in for service in the past month. I initially reported exhaust smell in the cabin coming from the air vents. There was a problem with the shifter which they replaced but they told me they couldn't detect the smell or a cause for any smell. I took the car back last week when the exhaust/rotten egg odor continued and the car was making a low drone noise and faltering on acceleration. I was just told this Monday (two days ago) that the exhaust smell is part of the problem being reported on the news. I was not aware of what was on the news at all. My car is a 2014 Edge.

Door ajar sensor gets stuck and indicates an open door, even though it is properly closed and latched. This leads to being unable to get the dome light to come off and drains batteries. Varying numbers of door closures are required to get the sensor to reset. Makes no difference if door is slammed or shut gently.

Opening/closing driver side door; driver door ajar light stays on when door is closed which leaves on interior lights after exiting the vehicle. It has started to occur more often within the last month, approx 85,000 miles. When the driver ajar light is on my door locks will not engage/initiate during driving like they should normally do. Contacted used car dealer and they suggest the charge to fix can range from 195. 00-450. 00, depending on the issue, sensor replacement etc. . . . .

My passenger door ajar light/alarm comes on randomly while driving down the road, and sometimes it happens after someone gets in and shuts the door. This weekend it happened while I was driving at night during terrible rain. . . Causing the interior lights to come on and nearly blind the driver(me). It doesn't seem to know when the door is open/closed. This also keeps the car from locking correctly. . . It automatically unlocks because it thinks the door is open. Last- the light will remain on when you exit the vehicle which ends up killing the battery. You might think it is ok- but it just decides to trigger the door ajar sensor and lights are on. This has happened in middle of the night, after I thought it was locked up and secure for the night. It also makes me wonder if the door latch is not working and the passenger may be at risk of falling out of the car. Ford wants 450. 00 to fix a safety problem that is widely complained about and should be remedied without cost to consumer.

Driver door ajar light has started coming on regularly even though all doors are shut. Sometimes it happens while driving and I get a "shift to park" warning. I then have to pull over and slam the door shut several times to clear it. It's becoming a hassle and lights stay on so it drains the battery. This is a defect and Ford should issue a recall and fix this issue. It's a safety hazard as far as I'm concerned.

Extensive water damage. Water is leaking into the car from an unknown area causing puddling on the driver side floor. Water can be heard swishing from underneath the car. A notice was sent to dealers to fix the issue before the cars were sold, it appears that they did not fix the issue prior to selling me the car and is now refusing to pay to fix it due to the fact that I am over the warranty period.
