If you don't have brake lights check the fuses.

Carfreak was right. Low and behold our brake light fuse was blown. Never in a million years would have guessed that. It keeps blowing now, so we bought a pack of fuses for the remainder of the trip home. There is a short somewhere that we will have to have fixed once we get home.

Flipped my 2003 escape onto its passenger side got it back on its wheels drove it away parked then put gas in it and then tired to start it and wont now whats goin on ???


hi.

you may have tripped the fuel pump safety switch. it cuts power to the fuel pump in an accident.

it is normally found behind a cover on the side of the passengers side footwell (possible drivers side on left hand drive). just press the button in to reset it.

if this does not work, you may have to take it to the dealers for them to reset any other safety devices that may have operated.

Ignition ley got locked. ket wont turn


I have an 2002 Escape. I can think of three possible issues:
You're using the wrong key. Duh.
You have a bad ignition switch. Extremely unlikely.
Your steering wheel is pushing against the steering lock. I just went out to my Escape to confirm this on mine. This happens sometimes if you park against a curb, or parking block. The steering wheel is pushed against the lock pin, and the key can not be turned.
Trying turning the sterring wheel back and forth. There should be some play or shake. If no play, turn the steering wheel a little harder in either direction until it moves a little, hold it, and try the key.

For the disbelievers, this can happen on most cars. Go to your car and hold some pressure on turning the steering wheel. Try turning your key from off to start.

The car wont shift out of park however the mechanic was able to trigger a switch to get it to work and shift. He said it is the nuetral safety switch, is this the same as the range sensor on ford escapes?...


The range sensor will not cause the shifter to not come out of park. Check to see if your brake lamps work. There is a solenoid that is energized when the brakes are applied to allow the shifter to move from park. I would check fuses and the braek switch first before replacing anything. I hope this helps. Good luck.

2001 Ford Escape won't come out of park. It will usually crank, but not come out of park. We managed finally to get it to come out of park and we are leaving it in neutral and cranking when necessary. What...


when you stopped it the steering wheel locked up, try turning the wheel hard right or left when you turn the key, sometimes the wheel just needs a slight "just a little bit more" to get it unlocked, works for me, at the same time you have force on the wheel with one hand, slide the shifter with the other.
