Question about 2004 Ford Escape

1 Answer

The Vehicle was recently in an accident with minor damage. The car has been driven for the alst wekk without incident. Today, when my husband unlocked the door, the horn/factory installed security alarm went off. He could not get it to shut off no matter what he did. The keys do not have a "key fob" to unlock by remote- but they are electric locks. What can he do to shut off the horn so he can drive it to the shop?

Why won't my 2002 Clk 430 crank and shift into drive? It was in a minor accident.

depending on the amount/location of damage to the vehicle you could have damaged the wiring harness leading to blown fuses, or damaged important sensors/relays that, if damaged, wont allow the vehicle to start. or you could have tripped the rollover switch which cuts the power to the engine in the event of a rollover to help prevent fires. but can be set off if damaged or hit hard enough. Start checking fuses and wiring on the damaged part of the vehicle. I hope this info helps.

My ex husband was in a roll over car accident in his 2006 ford fusion going 70 mph and his air bags didnt deploy. is there a recall on those or does he have a possible case for his injuries?

Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes.There are several reasons why your air bag may not have deployed during a crash. The first reason is that perhaps your crash is not the type of accident where air bag deployment would be helpful. For frontal air bags, this includes many, but not all, side impacts, rear impacts and rollovers. This category also includes minor accidents in which the driver and front passenger (if there was one) did not suffer any significant injuries requiring medical treatment. Many people do not realize there are a lot of side air bags that do not deploy during a rollover accident, even when the vehicle rolls onto its side. That is because those side air bags do not include an appropriate crash sensor that can detect rollover crashes.

Looking at buying a used 96 dakota that was in a front end accident but professionally fixed and painted. 107,000mi. very clean. Is this a good buy?

Depends on what the price is. You might have an independent mechanic look it over for you if you have doubts. It's hard for any of us to say without seeing it and knowing cost.

Whenever i hit a bump large or small on the right front of the car the stering wheel shakes and sometimes pulls hard to the right what could cause that?

Check you suspension/steering components. Something is damaged or worn out. Any minor (or major) accidents recently? Big pot hole, slid off the road, went over a curb, etc? Something may be damaged from one of these incidents. Are you the only one to drive the Murano? I ask, because I have seen people swear that they never had an minor mishaps, only to discover Jr. took the car out off-roading, and bent the heck out of the lower control arm when he hit a rock. No damage evident until it was checked for alignment, which was way out of whack. Drive the car up on ramps and look very closely for any scrapes, dents, bends, etc. It is most likely a suspension component that needs to be replaced. Let me know what you find. Good luck!

My 2009 Honda CRV just started vibrating this morning driving to work on the highway. Is there a problem?

Something is causing the vibrating, which is not normal. Need more info-at what speed does it occur, vibrating in steering wheel, or ? What type of climate where you are (driving through something that sticks to the tires can cause vibrating, like road tar). Has anyone else driven the car recently? Could they (or anyone)have hit a large pot hole, curb, minor accident? All these scenarios could cause what you describe. If something was hit as listed, you would need to have the wheel alignment checked, and also suspension components for any damage.
