Question about 2003 Ford Escape
Go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. They also can test for Alternator output, starter draw, and battery condition. Before you go, clean your battery cables. The clicking noise can be something simple like a bad Starter relay.
If you want to put in a little more work, check the wires under the Escape at the Starter and see if they are corroded or green coated. Once you have eliminated these items as problems you want to look for shorts in the system causing the Battery to drain.
You can disconnect the Battery cables and insert an Ohmmeter between the 2 cables. You should remove the fuse to the clock and Alarm system. Turn off everything you can and if the Ohmmeter still shows a connection you have found a short and need to trace it down.
With any luck you will have found the problem at Autozone or Oreillys with the initial scan and not need to go further.
