SOURCE: 2002 Ford Escape V6 XLT, problem w/ initial start in cold weather

Does the engine crank but just not start? Or... are you cycling the ignition switch without trying to crank the engine? Based on the information you have given, I would first guess that the fuel pump may be going out. I say this because when you first turn the key on the pump primes the engine with pressurized fuel. If the pump is getting old, it may take a few power cycles to get it going. You can test this theory by having somebody listen near the rear of the car while you turn the key on for the first time. The fuel pump make a faint, yet distinctive high pitch noise that can be heard when you turn the key on. Try that first. Next thing you would try is checking the relays for proper function... starting with the fuel pump relay. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2008 ford escape-- power steering

Just off the top of my head I would say that the fluid level is low and/or the pump is sucking air into the system and is dropping pressure pressure after a while.

How to fix shifter stuck in park 2005 ford escape


In general this type saftey feature is released by pressing the brake pedal. If that doesn't work check and see if your brake lights work OK. Often its the same electrical circut that powers the shift lever lock release that lights the brake lights. Many vehicles will have a manual over ride. It is usually a slot or little removable plug or plastic panel you remove that let's you release the locking mechonizum at the shift lever. This should not be used as a way to drive a vehicle with non functional brake lights on the road instead of getting them repaired.

Have the battery checked. Have your Ignition key checked or use a different key. The ignition switch could be worn out in the RUN position.

The anti-theft usually comes on when power is less than optimum or the identity of the key is corrupted.

I have a 2001 ford escape 2.0L and i was having trouble of it turning over when the car was warm. If it was a cold start it would start right up. If i drove for a while then turned it off, it wouldnt start back up unless i let it sit for an hr or 2. But once started it would run fine

SOLUTION: I changed the fuel injectors $120 for parts. And now all the hot starting problems went away.

Hope this helps
