My 2003 Ford escape power steering wheel got stiff out of nowhere, right after I started having problems with my battery and alternator... help please


You have an electrical problem. Power steering cannot work without power and since you are having battery and alternator problems, you are probably trying to operate the car with a dead battery or faulty electrical system.
Have the electrical system checked by a few different reputable mechanics and get 3 quotes for repairs without sharing the information from one shop to the next.
Make sure you understand the warranty on the work and the cost of labor before you choose a service provider.
Edmunds has some interesting discussions on battery power losses in Ford Escapes around your year.

Alternator wiring harness


An alternator can run on two wires, the thick wire is the supply to charge the battery, direct to positive, via fuse box or starter supply. The thin wire possibly blue on Fords, is the energiser wire from the dash charge light, without this connected the alternator will not charge. If on the new pigtail two wires are thick (30amp) you can ignore one, some vehicles double up on the charge supply wire.

Dear Sirs, I'm now living in VietNam, my friend is living in US. He already sent to me the Motorcraft GL979 alternator 2 weeks ago(The part number: 8L8T-10300-AA), but my car is 2004 Ford Escape 3.0V6,...


my guess is that you have no voltage from the alternator to the battery, what does the voltage read on the alternator when running? the ecm or ecu or whatever has no control over this, check the circuit from alt to batt and check ground also, either one will give you a headache

Why would my battery light stay on my 2002 escape


The light indicates that the battery is receiving insufficient charge voltage from the alternator. Take the car to an autoparts store and have the alternator output checked. Most parts stores will do the test for free. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Battery won't hold charge


My 2002 Ford2.gif Escape had a similar issue later in 2006. My alternator died and I needed replacement. After replacing, the light would come on and off at times. When everything running (i.e. radio2.gif, air conditioner, driving lights) and tocuh electric windows up the power would lower and sometimes battery light on dashboard would come up. Original mechanic could find out what was going on and I lived for 2-3 years with it.

This past August 2009 after a long trip (i.e. 8 hours or so) my battery died. Brought to a auto parts place and they determined it was the baterry and the alternator. Since I was back on my home town I went to a good friend that is a mechanic and he fixed it for real.

He had a similar issue with three different Escapes coming back with alternator or baterry or both death. He found out that Ford has an official report for Escapes that when this happens the electric fan behind the radiator are short circuiting, affect direclty the baterry and alternator killing them, and needs replacement.

Try this and may work for you.

2004 Ford Escape Electrical problem


This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.
