Question about 2002 Ford Escape

3 Answers

Engine won't run properly then dies and won't start without charge

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.

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.

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start


Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

New Battery and alternator. The Battery light comes on and flickers when car is running.


It`s not uncommon to have a faulty unit, try voltage test on battery with engine running and all the electric`s you can switch on it should be putting out 13-15 volts at the battery also check belt tension...

Engine won't go over 5-10 MPH


You need to take the car to the dealer, because you need to recalibrate the electric throttle body with a TECH 2 Scanner, because the system went into a Limp mode.
