Testimonial: "Very thourough and helpful. Thanks!!!"
What engine do you have?
I have a 2002 Escape with 3.0 V6. It sounds like the ignition is getting damp and the engine is misfiring. If the CEL is flashing, you really shouldn't be driving it. Check the owners manual, but you could damage the engine.
Anyway, go to an Autozone or other parts store. Many will scan your engine for the DTC code for free. This code will give you a clue.
My code was for a for a cylinder misfire. I was close to 100,000 miles, so I replaced the plugs first, then the one coil. It was the coil.

Hello, Have a comment or two about your car. First thought was about Inertia switch in the rear cargo area of your vehicle. There is a reset button on the impact (inertia) switch for the fuel pump. You should hear the pump run the first second or 2 when you turn your key. It also has a power relay which should be in a black box of relays. There is also an Ignition relay on some Ford products.
When you tried the Starting fluid, you said it did not Start. But did it hit at all? When you did not have any codes on the computer, did the computer and the scanner connect or was the computer dead? Dead computer equals no codes.
There are a few things you can do and what I would try if I was there. Check the relays I mentioned. Go back to the basics and check for spark at the plugs and compression. If possible check fuel pressure at the Injector rail (which could lead back to a bad fuel pressure regulator). Check for power at the TPS switch at the throat of the Airhorn.
If you have no power to the TPS, or the fuel pump, check the Ignition switch. You have power for cranking, but the RUN terminal on the Ignition switch is a different terminal. Now for any missing test tools, you can get Loaners at Autozone and Oreillys with a deposit.
Would like to know the outcome of this problem. Thanks

Yes, it is safe to drive.
It could be something simple like moisture on the plug wires, water in the gas tank, etc.
But there will be codes stored in the car OBDII system that will tell you more details.
A place like Autozone will read them for free.
