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.

What are the fuel problem with 05 ford escape. want crank,battery not charging


Hello,

If the battery does not charge - alternator (replace)

The battery starts the vehicle and the alternator charges the battery and runs the vehicle after the vehicle is running.

I hope this helps

My 2005 escape will not start i had the battery fully charged but the alarm sound is very low, when turning the key all the gages jump, check engine light and battery light had been on prior to shutting...


Fully charging a bad battery is a waste of time as the bad cell discharges internally. Best have a load test done on the battery to eliminate it first.

I have a 2009 Ford Escape that intermittently will not start. I bought it used from the dealer for my daughter to drive to school which is a couple of miles from home. This is what happens. I put the key...


Believe it or not I have found that one key will start my 2009 Ford escape and the other will not-even after replacing the battery in the key. I though it was a dead battery or possibly the starter but it is the key. I haven't figured out how to get the key repaired. Thank God I had a spare one!

My 2005 F150 will not start I turn The Key and Nothing. Checked Battery it is good All connections seem to be good. I hear clicking in the passenger floor panel. Then sometimes the truck will just start...


When you say nothing, does that mean no power or you turn the key and there is no crank ?

If you turn the key to the run position ( do not start engine ) press and hold the brake and shift into neutral, and try to start, what happens ?

The other item to bench test is the start motor relay, which is in the cab fuse panel.

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.
