It is a malfuntion alright
Anytime you get any light on the dash,you got problems
These lights have been on vehicles for 30 years,still there are thousands of people on this site along, who have no clue,no owners manual,and on and on.
Check for the code and have it repaired,won't go away
Part of the Govt's attempt ,for the last 50 years, to cut down on Exhaust Emissions,but people don't care.

2005 Ford Escape - have awd. When i encounter bad roads, the 4wd light flashes. It resets it self when i shut off the ignition; however my abs light has never come on and their were no error codes o

Usually it means there is a component of the system that is not working. It could be a sensor or mechanical problem.
You'll probably need to take it to a dealer or major shop to get it tested.

With a po193 code can my van pass emissions

I noticed you said "van", the title of the question says "Problem with 2005 Ford Escape". I just wanted to make sure we're talking about the same vehicle. That code (for an Escape), would be a Fuel Rail Pressure and/or Temperature Sensor. As long as you have a check engine light on, you will not pass emissions. As soon as they see the light on, they will fail you immediately because they plug there monitoring machine directly into the OBD-II port. (On Board Diagnostics Series 2) under the drivers side dash. If the check engine light is not on at the time of the test, you might pass emissions as long as the engine is running ok.
I hope this info helps!subyguru

My check fuel cap light is on but i see nothing wrong with it. I made sure it was on tight. it is a 2005 ford taurus

As with all rubber gromets, O-rongs, and gaskets they tend to "shrink". This effect leaves room for fuel vapor to escape, which will result in an evap failure. Replacing the fuel cap tends to be the best solution.

FORD ESCAPE EMISSION CONTROL WARNING LIGHT PROBLEM: I have a Ford Escape XLT, 6 cylinder, 2002 model, and the above warning light comes on, on the dash. The problem is, that it only comes on after the car...

look at the fuel cap, make sure the rubber is good ans not cracked and has no dirt build up on it, if it does clean it good. While you are there check the filler neck where the cap fits make sure it is smooth and not rusty, if it is, clean it good. the vehicle will randomly run a evap test checking for a vacuum build up in the tank if it does not sense the vacuum it will put on the light and it will stay on until it runs the test and the vehicle passes the test. That it the reason there are signs at the gas station that say shut off your vehicle when fueling. make sure the cap is on properly and on tight before leaving.

Emission systems light on, losing power or misses

You may want to check your oxygen sensor and vacuum hoses. An OBD can help you identify the exact cause. Most auto store and garage should have one.
