Question about 2001 Ford Escape
The age of the battery could be a factor. My 2000 Windstar has a history of similar problems - currently on battery number 7. As battery function deteriorates, strange symptoms occur. Check for low or fluctuating voltage level on the instrumentation bus. In my case, I cannot turn on the rear A/C and leave it on overnight or it will kill the battery. You may find some similar malfunction. Try to get access to the factory service bulletins for your Escape as there may be a clue as to something that should have been corrected but wasn't.

yup..it is the alternator. you don't normally repair alternators there right? it could be a diode problem or a regulator problem.
if you know how to replace the diode assembly in your alternator then you can try and also the IC regulator also could be the bad part.
you may want to check the simplest thing....the belt. if you have loose alternator belt then it could just be that one.( least of all cost )
tnx 4 using fixya,

On any car 1996 or newer after a repair is made the memory in the computer has to be cleared the light will not go away by itself. The proper way to clear this is with a scanner or code reader but if you dont have any other way unhooking the battery will force the computer to loose all its memory and start all over and the light will go away. If the light returns after a few days you still have a problim.
