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: Battery in a 2001 Ford Escape won't hold charge.

After eight years, if the battery hasn't been replaced already, then it may be just that. Otherwise the only thing left to check is the battery cables themselves. Corrosion at the battery terminals is obvious but the alternator lead connection to the battery terminal might need to be verified electricaly. Also check the negative battery cable at the block and chassis. Basic charging system test is: Voltage at the positive terminal with ignition and all accessories off should be at least 12.6 volts. If below 12.6 even after 2 hour charge, replace the battery. With engine running at 1500 rpm, between 14.1.and 14.7 volts. With the accessories turned on one at a time, the charging voltage should drop and then come back up and not drop below 14.1 volts. If it does, the regulator is deffective. The voltage should change in response to loads and engine speed. Good luck, Techjoel

06 Ford Escape Hybrid. I didn't drive it and the battery died. Alarm settings are messed up need to reset to factory settings. Help!

I am not real familiar with Hybrids. In general, to go to a default setting you would disconnect the regular battery for at least 10 seconds and the systems should reboot. It does not cost to try this.

How to disconnect the anti theft alarm on a 2001 ford taurus

First, is this a Ford factory installed alarm? Or an aftermarket alarm?

If it is factory then check the owners manual or visit your local Ford dealer to see what they have to say. If it is aftermarket then check your battery terminals for wires that have been attached to the posts. If there are no wires attached directly to the battery then find the fuse box and see if there have been any wires tied into any fuses.

Hope this gets you closer to an answer.

How do you re-set the immobilizer on a 2004 Ford Escape? The key indicator on the dash keeps flashing and vehicle will not turn over.


Disconnect the car battery completely for 24hrs if possible, this should reset the computer, alternatively hold down the button until the alarm sounds then lock the car with the key this sometimes does the job.

The cold often causes this issue on this model, hope this helps
