Question about Ford Escape

1 Answer

(1/4) Ford escape 2003 DTC code p1061 and P1041 coming up at same Time. At first check engine light came on an stayed on. Then next day I started it and no check engine light was on. Drove it the whole day no light. Started it yesterday and check engine light came on. I then cleared the codes with scanner and drove it about 15 miles and check engine light came back on .. read it with scanner and for same codes.. I find it hard go believe both sensors went out at same time. Could this be a result of alternator being installed improperly? Thanks for your help . Amanda

SOURCE: CEL "ON" Scaned vehicle found

Hi, it means a primary oxygen sensor range/performance problem. In other words, the oxygen sensor is indicating a problem with the way the engine is performing. It can be anything from a vacuum leak, a weak fuel pump, a lazy sensor, and so on. It depends more on if the car is not running right or not.

Sounds like a problem with your catalytic converter or possibly just an o2 sensor. If it is a cat problem I would make sure to have them address it b4 your warranty is up as they are typically very expensive!

Check your PCV valve and the hose that attaches to it. This PCV valvle is usually located on top of your valve cover and usually have a 90 bend in it. I would replace the valve and check the hose for any cracks. The PCV valve should look like thisbrickdog2000_0.jpg.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

95 sl500 check engine light reset and comes back on after it sits over night. any idea?


What code is it throwing ? Some codes are what are called two trip codes ! You clear the codes an start an drive the vehicle ,no check engine light . Park the vehicle over night an bam next time you start an drive the vehicle the check engine light comes back on .

??There are two types of DTC's, 1 trip DTC's and 2

trip DTC's

??A 1 trip DTC is for a condition that requires

immediate attention such as a catalyst damaging

misfire.

??A 2 Trip DTC is one that a condition must be found

during 2 consecutive trips such as an EGR fault.

??Most Monitors do not set a DTC and light the MIL

when a vehicle fails a test for the first time during a

DRIVE CYCLE. If a test is failed on a second

consecutive DRIVE CYCLE the MIL will light and a

DTC is stored in the vehicles powertrain control
module (PCM).

Intermittent P0191 error code


I had a similar problem that turned out to be dirt contaminated gasoline. The "fix" was always to replace the fuel filter but it would not stay fixed. In particular, each time I started having problems it was after I let the gas tank level get low.

What I did that you can consider was:
  1. But a new fuel filter.
  2. Get a 5 gallon gas can.filled with fresh gas.
  3. Get some cheap gasoline proof container (or several containers) for waste gasoline.
  4. Make a "vacuum cleaner" out of an electric in-line low pressure gas pump, some low pressure gas hose, and a couple of pieces of copper tube, 20 ft of two conductor wire, and two alligator clips. It connects hydraulically copper tube to suck out the gas tank, fuel hose, pump, fuel hose, copper tube to go into the gas can. The wire and clips are to hook the fuel pump to your car battery.
  5. Drive the car until the fuel level is low.
  6. Remove the fuel pump module.
  7. Vacuum the gas tank into the waste gas container through the opening left by the fuel module. Try to get the dirt off the bottom.
  8. When you have vacuumed all you can get, stop awhile and let the dirt settle in the waste container.
  9. Vacuum the gasoline from the waste container back into the gas tank. Vacuum high in the container so the dirt stays in the waste. Try to wash any dirt in the gas tank to below the fuel module opening.
  10. Stop a while and let the dirt settle.
  11. Repeat vacuuming and washing as many times as needed to get the tank clean and empty.
  12. Inspect the tank interior with a mirror and flashlight looking for rust, dirt, etc.
  13. Replace the fuel module.
  14. Install the new fuel filter.
  15. Pour in the new gasoline.
And hopefully you are good to go.

This could be oxygen sensor; when the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.




* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I own a 2003 Ford Escape 3.0 L engine 6 cylinder. about a month ago I had a battery problem and replaced my battery. Once I did this, I then started to have a "battery not charging" light on...


Question is, is the light correct ? Check voltage when car is freshly started and headlights ON, and then as it warms up in relation to the light going off. The voltage at battery should be around 14.5 volts or a little more right when you start it, and not drop below 13 volts anytime IF the alternator is doing its job. don-ohio (:^)

2003 ford escape. 75,000 miles on it. Sputters


What engine do you have?
I have a 2002 Escape with 3.0 V6. It sounds like the ignition is getting damp and the engine is misfiring. If the CEL is flashing, you really shouldn't be driving it. Check the owners manual, but you could damage the engine.
Anyway, go to an Autozone or other parts store. Many will scan your engine for the DTC code for free. This code will give you a clue.
My code was for a for a cylinder misfire. I was close to 100,000 miles, so I replaced the plugs first, then the one coil. It was the coil.
