If the lights work it is not the battery. The battery controls your lights. It could be your starter. try tapping the litte round part of it with a crow bar or something, and if the POV wants to start or attempt you know thats the problem.

you can also check all your battery conections and insure that there isnt any corrision on them

2005 ford escape, starting problems. The battery tests good. Problem began with a clicking sound when key turn to start position...now nothing, no noise, just won't start.


If the battery tests that it is holding a charge and has plenty of volts to otherwise start the vehicle then I would be willing to bet that it is the starter. Try following the red or positive battery cable down to the starter. Have some one turn the key to the start position while you or someone else gently taps on the starter with a hammer to see if it is just stuck. If this does not work, i would take the starter out of the vehicle and take it to a parts store and have it tested before buying a new one.

Check battery cables for corrosion and good connection.
Try to boost it with jump starter.
Try to tap on starter while attempt to start.
To me sounds like a bad starter.

When i turn the key the escape wont start it just makes a clicking noise?


That noise is probably the starter solenoid rattling because the battery charge is low. Start out with a jump or make sure the battery is fully charged up.

2005 Ford Escape does not start, makes clikcing sound


sounds like the starter solenoid is defective, the contacts inside the solenoid get worn from electrical arching and then a no start occurs, the indication is a fairly loud clicking noise when you try to start the engine.

2005 expedition rear a/c makes thumping noise when transferring


Sounds like the roof/floor actuator internal gear is stripped. The only way to fix it is to replace it. Remove the cup holder in the right rear trim panel. remove the 8mm bolts holding actuator and replace.
