Question about 2005 Ford Escape
Just purchased a second hand 2005 Ford Escape XLT. Has all the options. A/C , heated seats all leather. The problem is when driving on the highway, I noted an interruption in the radio , it cut out when i looked down all the gages returned to 0 for a few seconds. Then everything went back to normal. The lady i bought it from had a remote started put on the machine. That is the only thing that has been done with the machine. She had it to Avalon Ford dealer , she only noticed it with the radio. They put it on the diagnostic machine and couldn't find anything. I have small children and am wondering if this is dangerous.
No it shouldn't be dangerous as long as you have the remote startup controller. As for the power cutting out it could be a bad battery, faulty cables, or even a failing alternator.
