2005 Ford Escape QuestionsRefine by vehicle
total break down july 2011, new pcm installed no problems since, check engine light came on Sat. so I took it to the dealership and the code was pcm again, they said there was no drivability issues, but the car didn't start today. It would turn over then immediatly turn off. After three tries it stayed on, but this seems like a drivability issue to me!
When you turn the vehicle on it start to make this knocking/rattling noise. It was only happening every now and then and when parked. But in the last few day it has gotten to where as soon as you turn the truck on it starts. Someone told me it was the compressor, but I'm not sure.
There is a cheap way and the right way to hook up to machine..what is this and how much does it cost?
Like a intermittant rattle sound coming from the right front wheel at low speeds over bumps. Repair shop says it could be the struts but wasn't sure. $550 would be a lot of money to spend if they are not sure it will fix the problem. I know its not a lot to go on but any ideas would be welcome.
When I start the car it starts wirh high rpm, and fter it warms up it wil occasionl squeak when i let off accelerator. Will also make squealing noise on startup after car is warm. Idle is pretty erratic when car is warm.
My alarm just goes off randomly, while it is sitting still and locked. usually once or twice daily.
Horn and flashing lights wil activate when there is no one around
I have looked all over the engine compartment, but cant find it.
The leather trim on the door panels, keeps coming loose. It is just kind of pressed on or something, I keep having to repress it under the seam. I don't know why it keeps coming loose.
Both lights are blinking sometimes, especially in high rpm. brake light is red.
It is open and will not close
when you are backing up there is a grab while putting on the brake
bulbs, fuses, ok. changed switch on transmission, still no lights. is there a relay or another switch???
My 05 ford escape has been running really high rpms while in park. If I sit in park the rpms will go up over 4 and it makes a loud humming sound like when you accelerate quickly while driving. Yesterday was the first time it did this while driving rather than parked; it was like driving with cruise control on that kept getting faster. I did not even have to touch the accelerator because the rpms were running so high that it was just going. I had to be on the brake the entire time, and when I had to come to a complete stop it was hard to do so. This past spring I had new plugs and wires put in because I had a cylinder misfire. I asked my mechanic back home and he said possibly the idle air controls or a vacuum leak, but I don't hear a hissing sound like a vacuum leak would have? I'm worried mainly because I don't know if this is safe to drive or not. I can't get into my regular mechanic for a while, and I know going to the local Ford dealer will be much more expensive. Any ideas?
