Failure Date: 09/19/2016

The driver side door sensor is bad. The vehicle is unsafe because the sensor remains on all the time even when the door is closed. So if the door is ever open, you would not know because all the sensors are bad so you assume it is just an error message. Also - on this vehicle - the brakes feel spongy at times and are not good, even though having the brakes looked at and they have checked as confirmed sound with new rotors and pads.

Failure Date: 09/11/2016

The rear driver side door ajar light stays on all the time and the door is not open. The interior lights stay on at least 5 minutes after turning the car off, therefore running down the battery. We just had to put in a new battery. The doors won't automatically lock while driving because it thinks the rear door is open. It doesn't matter how many times you shut the door, the door ajar light stays on. Very frustrating!! so many other complaints about this same problem, it needs to be recalled!!!.

Driver's door sensor is bad. Vehicle does not recognize that the driver's door is closed and will not lock or automatically turn off interior lights. At night, I have to back out of a long driveway only being able to use the backup camera. Once in forward motion, the light will eventually turn off but the driver's door will not lock. What is to prevent someone from walking up to and opening my car door while stopped at a traffic light?? on one occasion, the door ajar icon did not come on when starting the car but came on about 8 miles down the road. Also, when you park the car and lock it, it still does not recognize that the door is shut and does not automatically turn the lights off again. The Ford dealership wants around $600. 00 to fix this issue, I paid them $65. 00 to "clean the sensor" because the guy said that it might correct the issue or at least hold it off a while. I picked the car back up 3 days ago and now that door ajar light is on all the time. Before, I could at least open and close the door about 3-4 times and the light would go off.

The sensor for the driver door ajar keeps popping up. I have to close the door numerous times before it will allow me to lock the car. If I don't then the interior dome light will remain on. This happens while driving or when parked. If I am driving then the dome light remains on until I can get the sensor to turn off.

I was on my way to work on 9/2/16 making a left hand turn when I loss acceleration. The car was still running but I had no gas pedal. I was able to limp to the side of the road, thank god I did not get rear ended. The panel showed a wrench. I was towed to a shop and they cleaned the throttle body and said I should be good to go. Well yesterday got up to go to the grocery store and the same thing happened, no acceleration. It took me 20 mins to get around the block and back into my garage. My car only has appx. 40,000 miles and I feel it is unsafe to drive. Upon researching this problem I am not the only one having this problem. . Read more...

About a year ago had issue with car battery and car not starting. Told dealership of issue with dome light coming on and the door ajar alarm noise but not the ajar light. They said this sometimes happens with bad battery. Now the door ajar light comes on, the interior light comes on, the door ajar alarm sounds, my doors will not lock, and an alarm on my dash tells me to stop and put my car into park. This started over a year ago with the battery and now a year later we have had constant issues with the door ajar light that is now progressing. Light and alarms out of nowhere, doors not being able to lock, and the probability of car batteries going dead because interior lights won't stay off is a hazard not to mention trying to see at night with the interior lights unable to go off. Something needs done. All of this can happen when in motion or at a stand still. It started off being just when you first got in to start the car, now it can be while you are driving.

Left door sensor/latch is not working properly after 65,000 miles. Affects door locks while driving and parked. The door locks go up and down intermittently and unexpectantly. Affects overhead lighting and the remote start. Dangerous to have the doors not locked especially if young kids are in back seat.

Door latch sensor - drivers side door latch sensor is faulty. Randomly indicates door is open, unlocks all doors while car is being driven. Randomly unlocks vehicle while parked as well as turns lights on - thus draining battery and may leave driver stranded.

Door latch and door ajar light issues. When the door is closed, the door ajar warning light remains on. This causes several safety issues. It will not allow for the door to lock. The dome lights remain on whether the vehicle is parked or driving. The domes lights remaining on will also drain the car battery. It has been repaired by the dealer two times prior, but the repair doesn't last long. This is a major issue for the vehicle.

Failure Date: 08/25/2016

Ford Edge 2009 stalling. Called customer satisfaction program and was told by vehicle manufacture date & place where it was manufactured, that there tno issues. Vehicle cannot sit in idle for longer then 5 minutes and stalls. Afraid to take on highway due to so many people having stalling issues. Obviously Ford does not want to stand behind their customer satisfaction. This is a 2009 and has only 109,000 miles on it. Cannot be driven without it stalling 3 times in a matter of an hour. As Ford is well aware, this is due to a faulty throttle body. They suggest bringing it into dealer for a diagnostic, of which they are fully aware that it does not show up on the diagnostic readings. Just a reason for them to charge you for a test that will show nothing. This issue has been going on for over a year now. Started out as a stall once every 4-5 mins, but is now a daily occurrence when the vehicle is driven.

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.

For no particular reason my Edge decelerates to ten miles an hour while the tach reads 3rpms it has happened on all types of roads and in traffic also. The tranny fluid is always fine. No codes on dash either. I have my gas pedal to the floor and it will only creep at 10 mph. When it reengages it is a large hard jerk forward. One evening as I pulled into my own driveway it wouldn't move forward at all I shut it off waited restarted it and it was like nothing happened. It does studder a bit going uphill almost like it doesn't want to go then it does. For a while I thought it was things like bad gas dirt in a fuel line low fluids but it isn't this 2008s need a recall as many other Edge owners have the same issues. I have made an appt for the car at the dealer and I am not convinced they know the answer either. I received the recall for the gas tank , but I want one for this as I and many other Ford Edge owners have the same scary power train issues reported to you NHTSA please help us . I want a recall free repairs or a trade in with out being taken advantage of because of this problem thank you saylorsburg pennsylvania.

Purchased my 2011 Ford Edge in June/July of 2014 for jc lewis Ford in savannah, GA. Turns out there was an "extended warranty" in place because the brake booster's in this car have been failing. I'm not sure why they would have sold me a car without completing a repair or informing me of the possibility of malfunction. About a month ago, I was driving down the interstate at about 65 mph when I was cut off by another vehicle. When I went to tap the brakes to disengage the cruise control, nothing happened! I had to press the brakes about halfway down to get the cruise control to disengage and, even then, it felt like I did not have power brakes.

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.
