Question about 2004 Ford Escape
Had battery checked and battery connection checked both ok. Also the battery light tends to flicker while under acceleration. Does not happen all the time. Occasionaly car clicks whiel trying to start. Acts like the battery is bad
Sounds like a corroded or bad battery connection clean up all the cables and connections to your battery, hope that helps

There are diagnostic tools that could help detect what your problem is. The Snap-On Modis, or preferably a "Tech-2" GM scanner. Any reputable transmission shop, or GM dealer should have at least one of the two. It sounds to me like it could be the transmissions "EPC" (Electronic Pressure Control solenoid) The EPC controls main line pressure, in an effort to keep shift firmness, and shift duration at one specific level. This is to compinsate for the natural wear a transmission encounters, and to keep emissions as low as possable, by keeping shift duration low. When the EPC malfunctions (and thats somthing that they like to do in the 4t65E), it typically starts to shift harder than normal. They typically throw a P1811 code. (P1811 is a "max adapt-long shift" code) And the malfunction can be intermittent. Hope this helps, and good luck.

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.
Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.
