Question about 2002 Ford Escape
No electrical accessories work, then engine just won't go, can't shift from park. put in new battery, starts and runs fine for about 10 miles, then starts acting like low power and just won't go, then stalls. Will not restart without a quick charge, then runs fine for a couple miles and stalls again with no electrical working, (e.g. radio, power windows, ac fan, lights, etc..., except for power seat, it would move.
Had the same problem, replaced alt. and batt. all was goood for 4 months, now same problem again. ??????

I had the alternator checked, and it was bad. So I replaced it and problem solved.

Sounds like your alternator is shot. Remove your alternator and take it into Advance Auto Parts store and they can do a test on it. Don't waste any more money on batteries until you get this checked.
Also, don't be fooled by some sellers. A rebuilt alternator is just as good as a new one.
