Question about 2005 Ford Escape
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
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

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.
