Question about 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid

1 Answer

Paranoid new owner

I was driving my 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid home form the lot yesterday and noticed that twice it made a popping sound. It sounded like it was coming from the center console. It also sounded like water was draining. I did have the a/c on the econ mode the whole time. Just checking to make sure this is normal.

Also, is there a locking gas cap that can be ordered for the 2008.

Thanks

I bought a locking gas cap recently from Pep Boys. Maybe you can check online?

As for the noise.. I don't think I've heard anything like that with my 2008 Hybrid. I do notice lots of different noises but I tend to not pay much attention to them..

Release the pressure on it with a 3/8 ratchet or 3/8 pry bar. Slip old one off, put new one one. Follow the diagram that is in the car. 10-15 minute job at most. Level Easy.

I need to reprogram 2008 Ford Escape Key-pad.


u can try this, it is for an explorer but should be the same.
This information will be in your owners manual I think. 1. Type in the code you got when you purschased the vehicle 2. After typing in the code press "1" on the keypad 3. Enter in your new code 4. The doors should lock and unlock if this is done correctly

Ford Escape Hybrid goes dead if not driven for 3 days straight


I have the same problem with my 2007 Escape Hybrid... First experienced it about 1 year ago. The vehicle produces periodic sounds like an electric motor running for several seconds. I believe this is from the motor driven safety relay that disconnects and reconnects the high voltage hybrid battery when the vehicle is not in use. I also can hear a high frequency scream that sounds like a switching inverter power supply. If the vehicle is unused for a day or two the 12V battery is discharged and a jump is needed to start the engine. Ford service could not diagnose the problem. The +12V battery tested OK, but since it was almost 3 years old it was replaced anyway. This helped for a while, but the problem returned after I recently left the vehicle unused for several days. I know the battery is good, it tests OK and is less than one year old! Somewhat reluctant to go back to the same Ford service agency because of their previous failure to fix it. Please advise if you have found a solution or have additional information. This is the only problem I have ever had with the hybrid Escape, but it is very annoying. I am forced to carry a jumper battery to make sure I don't get stranded.
