Question about 2001 Ford Escape
For anyone experiencing this problem.
This problem is being caused by a bad relay.
This relay is located on the back side of the interior fuse box.
Remove the kick panel, remove the two nuts holding the fuse box. Rotate the box until you can view the relays.
The specific relay is the small one on the top left.

Have you checked the fuses? The easiest way to check fuses is to get a 12v circuit tester; ground the cable then use the probe end to check both sides of the fuse (you'll see 2 little metal pieces at the top of the fuse, touch those). If you get one that lights up on one side but not the other, the fuse is bad; just remove and replace the fuse. If you don't have any spares, and local auto parts store has them. Make sure to use the same size fuse. If you replace it, and it pops right away, you have a short, don't just go to a larger fuse; going to a larger fuse can cause a fire in your wiring.
You'll have to find and fix the short first.
