Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a new 2016 Ford Edge Titanium with all available options.  At
about the 2 week mark the "Hood Ajar" warning would sound.  We took it to
the dealer where they told us they would have to order a new sensor.  Wen
back a week later and had it installed.  Within day.... "Hood Ajar".  Took it to
another dealer.  They could seem to replicate the problem.  Did some
A few days later... "Hood Ajar".  Anyone else having this issue or do I have
a Lemon?

It's not a lemon, Ford dealers are having a difficult time finding competent people - technicians. Call the Ford customer service number and inform them of your Dealer experience.

They have been talking with Ford. Ford told them to replace the hood latch since the sensor was already replaced once and it works. Hopefully this will fix it. Other than that glitch... the Edge Titanium is amazing and the Sync 3 very user friendly. Much better than the My Ford Touch I played with in my son's 2015 Explorer Sport.


NEVER talked to Ford, just a Ford dealer not the same. "We took it to the Ford dealer where they told us they would have to order a new sensor. Went back a week later and had it installed. Within day.... "Hood Ajar". Took it to another Ford dealer." Regards, just have to read carefully.

To clarify... the "they" in the comment above was the Dealer who has been talking with Ford Corp. It was Ford Corp. who told dealer to replace the hood latch. Thought it was clear. Sorry for the confusion.


Thanks, for the Ford update information.
