A bad starter motor can do this. You will need to either bring the starter motor to a parts store where they can test it, or use a volt meter to see if you are getting voltage to the starter solenoid while turning the key to "start." (I usually remove the solenoid wire from the starter to eliminate other components such as...ignition, and neutral safety switch to test this.)

SOURCE: 2005 ford escape, starting problems. The battery

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.

Had to replace a blown engine on a 2005 ford escape xls


Check battery cables for corrosion and good connection.
Try to boost it with jump starter.
Try to tap on starter while attempt to start.
To me sounds like a bad starter.

Hear a clicking noise when i go to start my 2005 escape. had starter tested and its good. what might my problem be


Need more info, but I'll go with the scenario that your car never starts and just clicks when you have the key turned to start position: This is caused by either a weak battery, bad contacts to either the solenoid or the main cables to the starter motor, or the starter motor itself reads zero ohms (shorted). If starter and solenoid tested good, check the battery. Do a swap test to eliminate this possibility.
