Check all terminal connections. I would return the battery and have them check it, even if it is new. I have had this happen to me with a new battery. Next I would have the starter checked. Fully charge the battery with an external charger. Leave it disconnected over night. Reconnect the battery and try to start the vehicle. If it is slow to turn, the battery could have a bad cell in it. Fully charge it before you return it to the store to be checked.

Battery is DEAD on 2003 Ford Escape! Door key (using an actual key) unlock is also motorized, which needs battery juice. I can't get into this car! I thought about putting jumper cables on the sta


Open the door manually with the key!

Many Ford Escapes have power door locks as standard equipment. This system consists of a lock switch, lock actuator and wiring harness. When you depress the lock switch, it sends an electronic signal through the harness to the actuator. The actuator moves an internal piston that either pulls the actuator hook down or pushes it up. The actuator hook connects to the lock rod, which either locks or unlocks the door, depending on which way you push the lock button. While this system won't work with a dead battery, the mechanical lock system remains unaffected by electrical power loss.

Insert the door lock key into the driver's door lock.
Turn the key counterclockwise one quarter turn.
Pull the door handle up until the Escape's door opens. Once the driver door is open, simply open the remaining doors by pulling the interior door handles until the doors open.

2005 ford escape, starting problems. The battery tests good. Problem began with a clicking sound when key turn to start position...now nothing, no noise, just won't start.


If the battery tests that it is holding a charge and has plenty of volts to otherwise start the vehicle then I would be willing to bet that it is the starter. Try following the red or positive battery cable down to the starter. Have some one turn the key to the start position while you or someone else gently taps on the starter with a hammer to see if it is just stuck. If this does not work, i would take the starter out of the vehicle and take it to a parts store and have it tested before buying a new one.

check your battery make sure it is able to take a charge. ,if the amps are good check your connection, from altenantor to battery. check voltage drops, battery drains. Your problem most likley seems to be
your battery. Your starter might also be draining your battery. You ll find the problem keep looking.
