Ford escape troubleshooting

2001 Ford Escape XLT, 2WD 3.0 V-6, Automatic Transmission Problem: Low Fluid / Park Brake Indicator light is on in the dash. ABS light is also on in the dash, though this is not my concern. Fluid/brake light STAYS ON with park brake switch and master cylinder reservoir switch unplugged and/or jumpered to ground. As the name in the schematic suggests, I believe the fluid/brake light is only intended to indicate the parking brake is on or the master cylinder reservoir is low. Based on the troubleshooting steps described above I conclude there is a short in the wiring harness. Is there an alternative explanation? This is most likely unrelated, but I had recall 11S24 completed in Fall 2012. I don't know the full details of this recall, but I know it included "modification of he ABS system". Is it possible that this recall added an additional way for the brake/fluid level light to come on?

SOURCE: instrument panel needles goes nuts back and forth

same thing happens with my 2000 windstar, if you could take the instrument panel out, and unscrew the the back of the instrument panel that covers the circuit board and clean the circuit with a brush, pure bristle brush is best 'coz they're stiff and gets all the dust that accumulated on the circuit board. some dust particles contain conductive material and shorts the circuit board and cause the trouble you have, ever since i did that no more trouble. and to those who are planning of replacing your instrument panel should do this first. it'll save you money. by the way i am a mechanic

Ford escape 2001. When I accelerate to overtake another car only the rpm shoot up but the speed does not increase.


your transmission needs immediate service. common with the escape. Turbine sensor or low transmission fluid in most cases. otherwise upwards to torque converter failure.
AAMCO transmissions should be your best start

My 2001 fors escape will not switch gears and a friens act an *** and put 3 quarts of transmission fluid in my truck.


loosen up the transmission pan and drain some fluid into a drain pan. About 3 quarts worth. then start the truck and let it idle in park. check the fluid level with the motor running. If you get it to the full mark, try driving it. if you have problems, then contact a transmission repair center. Overfull can cause damage.

Check to see if you have had your car serviced for the ABS recall. You will want to do this timely as it is a fire hazard.
