Ford F-150 Owners Reportedly Complaining About Door Latch Issues in 2016 Model

When it’s freezing outside, the goal is to hop into your F-150, slam the door, and let the heat kick in and warm you up. But that’s hard to do when the door won’t latch shut.

Unfortunately, according to Torque News, some 2016 F-150 owners are experiencing that very problem when the weather turns bitter cold.

Other owners are reportedly experiencing difficulties, in cold weather, getting the truck’s doors to open at all, even when unlocked. And still others are having trouble getting the doors to unlock.

The auto news source quotes a number of adversely affected owners. However, they do so without actually citing the F-150 forum where the complaints supposedly surfaced.

Still, it’s worth noting, particularly since one of the owners says that Ford has issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) about the problem. Sadly, it seems to be a similar issue found in 2015 F-150s.

According to Torque, the TSB for the 2015 models states the following:”Some 2015 F-150 SuperCab and SuperCrew Cab vehicles built on or before 3/25/2015 may exhibit inoperative door latches during or after freezing temperatures.”

One of the mystery forum members quoted in the story claims that the new TSB basically says the same thing, just with different dates.

Have any of you folks noticed any problems with your Ford F-150’s door latches in cold weather?
