To whom it may concern: my vehicle does not recognize whether my door is opened or closed. I am always concerned that even shutting it may lead to issues because the alert is saying its not is not closed. Will my door radomly open on the highway? if im in and accident will I be thrown out of the car? I have contacted the Ford dealership and even put my car in the shop twice. They gave a temporary fix and really said there was nothing they could about it and the vehicle needed to be recalled in order them to look in to the issue. My girlfriend purchase the car at the same time and she is having the same issue with not only her drivers door but her passenger doors which could endanger he children. Please do something about this. We are afraid that this issue could potentially hurt alot of people.

I was driving on the interstate in montgomery al at 60mph. It was not raining, roughly 78 degrees. I heard a loud pop & then glass showered down on me. The sunroof spontaneously shattered. There was no prior damage & it was not hit by anything. There were no cars around me nor did anything fall down on the car. A hole was in the middle of the sun roof protruding outward and it was shattered every where else. I do have pictures. The Ford dealership stated they have had no issues with this however, I have found other reported cases. My insurance will be taking care of this since Ford brushed it off.

Our Ford Edge door latch continues to fail stating the door is open. The alarm sounds frequently and distracting to the driver. I took the car in multiple times and Ford would only authorize a cleaning. Finally the car went out of warranty and I had the part replaced. Ford has acknowledge this as a problem. The problem is very dangerous as the warning sound distracts the driver.

The driver door ajar alarm started going off, and the doors unlocked while the car was moving on the interstate. It has now happened several times both while driving down the road and when getting in the vehicle. Now, the dome light and outside marker lights remain on and drain the battery when the vehicle is in park because the sensor isn't reading that the doors are closed.

While driving less than 5 mph in my driveway and turning to park, I noticed a thin stream of smoke coming from under the hood on the driver's side, about 3/4 way up the hood toward the windshield . I stopped, turned the car off and got out. Within seconds the car was filled with white smoke and the same white smoke started pouring out all sides of the hood and the front grill, fire was dropping from the engine onto the ground, and within about 30 seconds the front of the car went up in flames that were shooting 10-20 feet into the air. 2 minutes of exiting the car it was fully engulfed with 20-30 ft flames and thick smoke the fire department arrived in about 5 minutes and put the fire out. The car was completely destroyed. I notified Ford of the incident and they advised there were no recalls or similar problems with other Edges. I have photos of the destroyed car the day after and also still have the car if there's any reason to inspect it.

My brakes started off feeling very stiff, then would sink into floor while making a hissing sound. Often barely stopping. When stopped with my foot on the brake the engine will start sputtering like it is going to shut off, when I let off the brake it will run fine. There were no warning or indications that there was a problem and I have nearly wrecked multiple times. I contacted the local Ford service department and was informed that they have fixed this same problem in several of the Ford Edge suvs and that it would cost between $600 and $700 to repair. If so many people are having the same issue why has Ford not put out a recall on this?.

Vehicle door is closed but warning reads door ajar. Doors will not lock because the door is ajar but it's not. Inside stayed on for about 2 min while dring. Sometimes I get I'm and there are no problems then the doors will unlock and the door ajar shift to park pops on. Or I could be driving with the door ajar warning on but doors are closed then the doors lock and warning goes away. I thought it was the sensor but the door closes but does not latch.

I was driving my 2011 Ford Edge on a busy road and lost all ability to accelerate. The engine jerked, then started shaking, wrench light came on the dash board. I would push the pedal and nothing would happen. Had to roll along with flashers on until I reached a parking lot entry to pull into, as there was no shoulder on the road I was on. Meanwhile, cars were speeding up behind me and passing my car into on coming traffic to avoid colliding with me. Once in the parking lot, I turned off the car, and immediately turned it back on (less than two seconds later), and everything was back to normal. Took the vehicle directly to the dealer and was told by their service technician that I needed a new throttle body and was no longer under warranty (vehicle had 57,000 miles).

The driver side door ajar indicator lights when the driver side door is closed. After several attempts at opening and closing the door, the indicator shuts off. The dome light stays on until the indicator shuts off. The indicator has come on while driving, causing the dome light to come on and the door locks to unlock. This situation has impaired my visibility during night time driving. The dome light will draw down the battery if you are not aware that it is on when leaving the vehicle.

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.

The driver's side door continues to have a "door ajar" warning light on even when the door is closed. This causes the interior lights to stay on and then system to "bing" about the door being open when it is clearly closed. Not to mention the doors won't lock because of it and I don't know if the door is ever truly open or if the air bag will deploy. This is a safety issue that needs to be addressed and fixing the issue should not cost owners $500!!.

Driver side door ajar censor is bad. Ford has known of the problem for a long time. When you shut the driver side door the dash light indicates the door is still open so you close it again and again and again. Ive googled it and Ford knows about it but I guess they rather you spend 500 dollars to get it fixed then do a recall. It happens all the time shutting the door and reshutting the door over and over to get the light to go out and to get it to stop dinging ive read all the complaints on line and still Ford does nothing why dont they have to tell you this problem before you buy the vehicle isnt that fraud. If you know of a problem you have to disclose it. You do when youre selling and buying a house!!!!.
