2004 escape oem alarm goes off when you start the car.


My problem started after a low battery also. It is a different problem than yours but it might solve your problem. Here is my solution. I believe it's worth a try for the price. All signs point to the Accessory Relay (NOT the Accessory Delay Relay). I replaced the Accessory Relay (Standard Part V13081 RY612). It cost me $15.61 with tax. On the 2004 Ford Escape, it is just to the right of the fuses in the fuse box by the driver's side seat. Three days and all good so far. It is well worth the price to see if this works for you like it worked for me.

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!

2004 chevy trailblazer ext. Clicking noise coming from right rear panel in car at start up. It clicks like 8 times and stops, then 8 times and stops. It will do this several times then stop completely....


Did you recently replace or disconnect the battery? Common problem is for the airflow actuators to go out and make that clicking sound in the rear when the battery is changed or disconnected.

2005 ford escape, starting problems. The battery tests good. Problem began with a clicking sound when key turn to start position...now nothing, no noise, just won't start.


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.

I have a 2004 Ford Escape and just recently it started to stall out when I turn on my windshield wipers.


Does it do it only when you turn on the wipers, or will it also stall if you turn on the headlights or heater fan? I am asking because it is possible that the alternator is failing to produce enough electrical current so when you turn on additional high demand electrical devices in the vehicle there is not enough battery power available to operate the fuel pump or engine computer properly causing the engine to stall out.

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.
