2002 Ford ZX2 electrical problem

My car has had some wierd problems ever since an accident a few years ago... rear defrost wont work, dome light works some times not others, etc... The car wouldn't start at all so we replaced the battery. Everything was fine for a couple weeks then it died again. When I hooked a charger up to it the anti-theft system started going crazy and didn't want to shut off. It finally did after hitting the button 20-25 times. The battery finished charging and it was fine for another couple weeks. Now it is dead again... I am thinking there is something pulling on the battery when the car is off??? Any ideas what could be wrong? how to fix it? Thank you!

Go to your nearest autozone and have your charging/staring system checked. If they find a problem with the alternator, that may explain your battery problems. If your think that one of your electrical systems may be pulling a "parasitic draw" or constant load, that is more complicated to diagnose. To diagnose a constant draw of your battery , you would need a ammeter connected inline with each circuit. Disconnect each fuse and connect a amp meter where the fuse would go, and record your resutls with the car off. The circuit with the most amperage is where I would start looking.

2005 Ford Escape - I lost my power windows, power door locks, blinkers, radio, rear defroster, rear wiper, dome lights, and the warning beep when the keys are in the ignition, all at the same time....


Did you have the vehicle's control module system checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ??????? Specifically the SJB - smart junction box , ford's BCM - body control module . Does the remote start/keyless entry still work ? Adding after maket system's to vehicle's (even your year ) isn't all ways a good ideal . It can cause major problems ! Having a qualified professional automotive technician check it out would be a good idea. Who installed these aftermarket systems ? Some of these place's have no idea what they are hooking to , any old place they can find B+ power .

I recently put a new head unit in my 2002 ford escort zx2.. now dash lights (speedometer and what not), reverse lights, and my shifter lights wont work at all.? any ideas


Probably cut or pulled something out of place when you installed the new head unit. I would pull it out and do a visual inspection to see if there are any damaged wires or if something came unplugged.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.
