  1. Electrical Issue

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hey all - first time posting and I have read some similar issues from people but I still haven't found an answer. I purchased a used 2018 Ford Escape SE about a month ago with 21,000 miles on it. The previous owner needed to get the engine rebuilt (under warranty) and for the first two weeks...
  2. Just Changed Battery on Wife's 2014 1.6L

    3G DIY Garage
    The original battery finally started going caput on my wife's Escape. Not too bad a run considering what all the batteries have to run these days. I removed the wipers, cowl, and water drain to get at it. It really wasn't that difficult. Two 15mm nuts holding the wipers down, a bunch of...

    3G Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    Pretty much a complete nub when it comes to cars. I can fix a computer in no time flat..cars make my head hurt. After watching Youtube U, I replaced my 2014 Ford Esacpe Se battery via the cowl method. Issue really was that the negative post was so corroded, that I had to replace the pig tail...
  6. Warranty Maintenance

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    I recently had a door latch recall done on my FE 2014 and also had a power piston replaced on the tailgate due to a clicking noise upon opening and closing. I got the car back and the next day noticed a slew of issues with the electrical. - Heater turned itself on to MAX and put the defroster...
  7. The Mystery of the Draining Battery - solved

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    I like a good mystery. So when a dame, claiming to be my wife, came knocking on my office door, I was all grins. Her Escape battery would occasionally go dead overnight. No unusual activity, no witnesses. The dealership was stymied - the battery was fine they claimed, so in their opinion...
  8. Easiest Battery Access - 10 Mins - Cowl Removal

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    Hey Everyone, As we all know our batteries are buried under the cowl, most of us have talked about the method for accessing said battery being removing the whole air box and then sliding the battery forward... I've done it twice, and each time took waaaay too much time. This may be old...
  9. Battry Usage when "Off" or in Accessory Mode

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    How long is the 2015 supposed to stay on once you park it and initially push the ignition button to turn it off without opening the doors? I ask because the car was dead the other morning, I jumped it and took it to the dealer who said everything was charging okay, and that I should unplug the...

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    I have a 2013 Ford Escape Titanium. Today when I went to start my car it wouldn't start. I have the fob, so when I pushed the start button I could hear clicking sounds and my headlights flickered. The clicking and flickering carried on for about 5 minutes. On one of my failed attempts to start...
  11. Dead battery...help!!

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    I drive a 2013 Escape and it wouldn't start today. The battery was completely dead, not even the locks would work. I hadn't left any lights on, all the doors were shut etc.....the only thing I can think of is that I left my GPS plugged into the 12V outlet in the center console. Does that...
