Question about 2005 Ford Escape
I replaced my starter, and my alternater. My radio and gauges turns off while driving, for 15 secs then turns back on. Its not a loose connection or a ground wire. My alternater was rebuilt, the starter was new. I have not changed the battery its the original, but it was tested.
I had the same problem on my Dodge Caravan. When driving, all of a sudden the gauges would flake out and all the dummy lights would come on but car would remain running. Checked the battery and the alternator, both were fine. I finally figured out that it was the battery. Funny, the post that goes inside the battery had come loose. I was able to pull it out. Once I replaced the battery, the problem went away.
