02 escape at light flashes fast key in run wont turn over


From my previous experience with anti-theft ignition switches, the most common way is to allow the key to stay in the RUN position for 10-15 minutes. The light should stop blinking. Sometimes you have to turn the key to the OFF position, wait 15 seconds then try to crank the car.

If this does not work, pull your wires from your battery. Probably wouldn't hurt to clean the points while you wait the 15 minutes for the system to reset itself. A good connection could prevent this from happening when you really Do need your vehicle to crank.

Hope this helps.

I just installed fuel pump in my 2002 ford escape the pump now work but the egine will not roll over but the battery is fine i out in my new car and it started that


There are several possible issues depending on what you have happening such as - is it cranking over or not. Ford used their wonderful passive security systems on these years of vehicles which can be a real pain. If you use a test light and are getting power to the starter switch (small wire on starter solenoid) when friend turns key to start but it is still not turning over then starter is not functioning. If your interior lights and dash lights all work when key is turned to on but everything goes off when you turn key to "start" position try cleaning battery terminals. If terminals clean or even better if terminals clean and you jump with jump box or jumper cables and it still not cranking check with test light as mentioned above and if no power to start switch check relay in underhood fuse box. Swap the "starter" one with one from fan or other of same size and see if starter will now turn. If you can turn the key on and hear the fuel pump turn on (buzz or whine from rear) and the engine cranks over trying to start but will not - it may be the passive security system. The chip in key or the reader for it may have died. Each key is $75+ and if you do not have two good keys they (Ford Dealer) will charge you for making two keys and activation fees - Total $300 - plus getting the vehicle towed in. The vehicles computer tests many sensors before letting vehicle actually start so it is normal for it to crank for a few seconds before it actually fires. If it senses something wrong in that first few turns like no crank or cam sensor reading it will not allow vehicle to start. You can read codes with a code reader for this by testing with key on and not running.

1996 F150. Got a new battery, tank is full of gas. Would not even turn over until I got a new battery Now it turns over but no starting. Started first time every time until the weather dipped down below...


might be a bad crank sensor-they go bad all the time on Fords (4.6, right?)-unplug it, and plug it back in again, it might start right up, worth a try.

What kind of battery can I use for my 2002 model Ford Escape? My car is a 4X4, 2.6 engin size


You sate you have the 2.6 liter engine. Is it four or six cylinders? The number of cylinders is also used to determine the correct battery amps. The following information is for the four cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps, or 720 cold cranking amps. The following is for the six cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps or 720 cold cranking amps. The auto parts store can help you decide the best battery for your vehicle.

2000 ford windstar won't crank over,but pats keys good, and batt.


First thing I would check is to see if you have power at the trigger wire of the starter motor while someone is trying to start the vehicle for you. It will be a Yellow with a light blue trace. If you do then I would check to see if the main battery cable has power to it all the time when someone is trying to crank it. If it does then I would hold a test light on the case of the starter motor and have someone try to crank it. Make sure that the ground you use for this test is on the negative battery terminal not just anywhere on the car. If the test light lights while you are cranking it then you have a bad ground. Hook up a set of jumper cables from the battery negative terminal and clamp it directly on to your starter motor and see if it starts. If you check it and the test light doesn't light up and all the other checks are good then your starter motor has failed. If one of the other tests has failed then you have a starter relay problem or something else. let me know what you find out.

1987 F150 302 ci. EFI, Automatic, Was running good. Next morning NOTHING! Wouldn't start or crank over? Just clicking and buzzing, Headlights OKAY. Tried jump starting... NO GOOD. Took battery in... Was...


try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

Battary light on , engine cut off car won't crank


sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.

Car won't start


I'd probably start with cleaning my connections at battery, & making sure my battery has a full charge. If not cured, maybe a new battery is required. If it will start with a jump, try running it for a couple of minutes with boosters on, and if all appears o.k. , change your battery.
