    I replaced the battery in my 2005 Ford Escape yesterday and am now experiencing the same issues that you had. Did unhooking the battery work?

Check the fuses... if they are ok... unhook the battery to reset everything and try again.

Should a 2005 Ford Escape have an alternator problem? Just had to replace one. Is there any kind of recall?? I had Pontiacs for years and never had to have one replaced. PLEASE EXPLAIN the problem. ...


Well, it's not uncommon for a 5 year old car to have a bad alternator.

I looked at the recalls and there were none for the alternator for the 2005 Ford Escape.

It has more to do with miles traveled and quality and construction of the alternator, and general wear and tear issues, than whether it's a 2005 model year SUV that is relatively new, but still got a bad alternator over time.

Hopefully, you can get more than 4 or 5 years out of this alternator. Does your replacementalternator have a lifetime warranty on it?

My 2005 ford escape just died after i filled it up with gas and drove down the street and the fuel gage read 3/4 tank after i just completely filled it, 5 different codes were takin, coil #1, coil #2, coil...


sounds like a quad driver has died. unfortunetly it is in the ecm computer. this needs checked throughly it is an exspensive part. as far as the fuel sensor it's part of the sending unit, it comes with the pump. not cheap either. if you can live with the gauge and keep check on your fuel milage I would wait till the pump went out.

Battery won't hold charge


My 2002 Ford2.gif Escape had a similar issue later in 2006. My alternator died and I needed replacement. After replacing, the light would come on and off at times. When everything running (i.e. radio2.gif, air conditioner, driving lights) and tocuh electric windows up the power would lower and sometimes battery light on dashboard would come up. Original mechanic could find out what was going on and I lived for 2-3 years with it.

This past August 2009 after a long trip (i.e. 8 hours or so) my battery died. Brought to a auto parts place and they determined it was the baterry and the alternator. Since I was back on my home town I went to a good friend that is a mechanic and he fixed it for real.

He had a similar issue with three different Escapes coming back with alternator or baterry or both death. He found out that Ford has an official report for Escapes that when this happens the electric fan behind the radiator are short circuiting, affect direclty the baterry and alternator killing them, and needs replacement.

Try this and may work for you.
