Question about 2005 Ford Escape

1 Answer

P.A.T.S. problem I have an intermittant problem with my 2005 Ford Escape.Sometimes it will not start and the security light flashes rapidly. Most of the time I can disconnect the battery and then it will start. I spent $300 at the dealership to replace the key and transceiver. This did not work. I replaced the battery and the prblem went away for 4 months(weird, huh). Now its back and right now it wont start at all. This has drove me nuts and now i dont know what to do. I have got to get it fixed no matter what the cost, but I dont know where to start. Any help would surely be appreciated.

Flashing 4wd and steady abs light on ford escape

I have a 2005 Ford Escape and have this problem. I can tell you that if the light comes on every .8 miles and blinks for 8 times, learn to live with it. After taking to dealer when it first started in about 2008, having the tone ring changed on the CV's for the tires, after been told maybe an alien lived in there....the light sell happily blinks on.If it comes on and stays on I would worry more than if it blinks intermittently. Mine has what they call "Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive" [which must be an oxymoron], but still has the 4X4 light to indicate when supposedly it switches in to 4-wheel drive according to driving conditions. Certainly if you haven't noticed any other abnormalities with how the vehicle drives this could very well be the culprit.Hope this helps.

The head lights flash rapidly, the inside panel light flash, cd player works intermittently

Check and clean battery terminals...if its a total power failure, intermittent or flashing, I'd go to the source of power...the battery.

2005 Ford Escape O/D Light Flashing

The OD light flashes when transmission code has been tripped. The only way to find out what it is and how to fix it is to have the truck hooked up to the proper scan tool. (trans code scanner is needed).

2005 ford escape. The ABS light is on and 4x4 flashing

You need to remove your tyres and clean the abs sensors well enough.

You might also change your brrake pads if they have gone bad.
