Question about 2002 Ford Escape

Open Question

2003 Fort Escape Limited 3.0L. Power door locks don't work unless key is turned pass accessory. Radio does not power on, found blown fuse for radio (in that panel on driver side) but still no power to radio (not even that time display power seams to be available). Alarm does not work. Interior lights and cluster lights don't work. We replaced the battery, half a day later vehicle cannot start without a jump-start. The last symptom sounds like Alternator needs to be replaced; however, we don't understand Power door lock, factory alarm & radio issue. Need expert knowledgeable advice.

My 2004 Ford Escapes radio wont work and it doesnt let me lock my doors when the car isnt running it also doesnt ding when the car doors are open. what is happening?


Hello Al,

Does your dash display a flashing "service soon" indicator?
Have you checked for fault codes?

You have a good battery, your ignition switch is powering up the vehicles dash board and the vehicle will start and operate normally....?

Any lights on the radio display?
Check for 12 volts on the radio power lead...no power? check for 12 volts across the accessory / radio position in the fuse box. No power but fuse is good...wiring issue in the harness.

Power across fused circuit no power to radio check radio's in line fuse...fuse good? ... radio bad or disconnected speaker wires.

Make sure all your vehicles grounding positions are clean and tight.

When you say your door locks don't work are your talking about the switch on the door or the remote fob?

Check your owners manual to check for any radio reset info.

Radio acts like there is no power


The radio, DVD and CD only function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACCESSORY positions .Your problem sounds like the radio and possibly the other affected devices are lacking power in the accessory position. This may be an issue with the ignition switch. These vans have a high failure rate of the ignition switch [not to be confused with the lock cylinder, where you insert the key] The power door locks should always have power. Check ALL the fuses both under the hood [next to the battery] and under the dashboard, if there is an additional fuse box there.

2002 Ford Escape xls electrical issues with no obvious culprit


without a play its difficult to advise ,sorry about my inabillity to answer your question here but i would need my head under the bonnet and my greasy grimed diesel engine engine fingers having a good probe behind the dash ,i suspect a fuse blown in the fuse holder inside the car fuse box but it could also have blown a fuse in the power distribution box under the bonnet as well .The permanant 12v supply will have a different fuse to the 12v ignition switched feed .But i have very limited practical experiance with this american vehicle .

Power door locks do not work unless the ignition switch is on, radio and dome lights also do not work.


look for another fuse box in or under dash. still sounds like you have a blown fuse. look in owners manual for all fuse box locations,including underhood electrial center. good luck.

Radio wont hol memory, dome light wont work when key switch off, and All lock wont unlock doors unless key in on.


Probably a fuse. You radio keeps it's memory using a constant power wire which is probably interlinked with the dome light, door locks, etc. Check fuses under the dash as well as under the hood for any blown fuses. Look for fuses labeled with your listed problems of things that don't work.

04' Ford FreeStar - The Radio Stay On When Van Is Off


Nothing wrong with it. When you remove the key, it stays on for about 20 minutes. It gives you time to finish listening to your radio and roll up the window. Once the driver door is open, everything shuts off or if 20 minutes has passed.

Radio, dome lights and EVIC power problem


I found a paritally blown fuse. When the fuse blew metal pieces ended up partially making contact. After replacing the fuse everything worked great.
