SOURCE: check engine light reset for 2001 ford escape

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.

SOURCE: transmission filter

If it is an automatic most have the filter in the transmission, Since there is not a drain plug on most automatic transmissions, you have to loosen the transmission pan bolts and let it drain. Then you have to take the pan off and there you will see a flat filter, usually held on by three screws. This job should left to a qualified repair shop unless you are a good shadetree mechanic.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Escape, dome light will not go off when

The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.

2014 ford escape was in a accident and everything was fixed now car will not start

Fords are equipped with a fuel shut off switch. When hit, it shuts the fuel system off. Most of the time these are in the rear drivers side . Lift hatch up and look on the left. Sometimes it is under the panel. After an accident, this usually has to be pulled out or pushed in to reset

2001 ford escape tried to **** a truck out of a field it shut down by passed fuel shut off now not getting a spark?

I would recommend diagnosing the problem correctly. You need to start with a full computer network scan. Who knows what was knocked loose by the sudden shock of running out of rope or chain when trying to [pull roughly] a truck out of a field. A computer scan will most likely point you in the correct direction. Diagnosis by parts replacement can get VERY EXPENSIVE, VERY QUICKLY. We don't even know at this point if maybe the theft system has been triggered and has shut the fuel and ignition down.
Since we are on that subject.... it is not necessary to "bypass" the inertia fuel shutoff switch if it has been tripped. All you have to do is RESET it.
