Question about 2005 Ford Escape

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure

Is there a known issue with the 2005 Ford Escape having multiple ignition failures coupled with on-board computer failure? I'm being told that the vehicle had 3 failed ignition coils. Following the replacement o*** 6 ignition coils I was told that the on-board computer had suffered a driver failure which requires replacement with reprogramming. I've never heard of such a thing; is this a known problem that potentially has had recalls associated with it?

This is a common problem on most Ford products since around 1998. The issues is mostly with the COP--Coil-On-Plug. Their individual coils for eack spark plug,vs. a single coil pack or distibutor and wire type system. Now the good part. With all of fords problems, ALL MFG's use this type system,Nice move.
The coil driver failure, shouldn't be a wide spread issue
Forget recalls?

You saw Nissan ,recall issues,back to 2004 thru 2008,once Toyota had the gas peddle issues. If it wasn't for Toyota,they were laying low. Everyone new there were problems. Same thing on Chevy Colorado,Etc

My 2005 ford f250 is having random mis-fires and multiple mis-fires. Can you give me any advice


Hi there:

The misfire detection monitor, a software strategy built into the computer, is designed to detect an engine misfire. The computer can also normally identify the specific cylinder in which the misfire has occurred. A misfire is nothing more than a lack of combustion, which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. There are other possible, less obvious causes as well, such as uncommanded Exhaust Gas Recirculatin (EGR), flow. When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.


Possible Causes:
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect Fuel Pressure
EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues


Diagnostic:
To diagnose a P0300 trouble code we begin by checking for proper fuel and ignition system operation, and then follow up with the less likely causes listed above, such as EGR and EVAP system problems. New style coil on plug applications have a high failure rate, and can be concluded faulty by swapping to another cylinder and checking to see if the misfire moves to that cylinder. This is a quick check if a capable scan tool or oscilloscope is not available. Always make sure the basic maintenance is done first and that things such as the fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs and spark plug wires are in good working order, as these are all possible candidates for a problem. If necessary, check for wiring and component concerns.


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.

My ford fusion will not start,it gives me a message saying brake failure,but then will start after several try's any ideas?


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure


to beds_borders

That sounds very familiar. Our 2005 Ford Escape just had about the same problem to the tune of a $2800 repair. Computer failure caused two iginition coils to fail and had to drive over the Continenetal Divide on 4 cylinders. The vehicle is only 5 years old. Happened about 3 weeks ago. Ford said there is no recall. I have a big problem with that.. Where is the "quality" they are trying to sell?
