Nobody was near the car or the key fob that has the panic button

I have had the vehicle scanned, because I was told it was a bad door sensor, and replaced the gate (both sensors) and it still does it. Scanned again and no codes came up. If I leave the vehicle unlocked it does not go off. Only if I lock all the doors with the key fob. And it always happens in about an hour from locking the vehicle. Also wondered if there was an easy way to find out of all the door and hood sensors if there was an easier way to determine what is wrong. It did say while scanned there was low voltage to the computer...but the vehicle was running and the tech didn't understand that. The door ajar light does come on when the vehicle doors are completely closed. This used to happen once in awhile, but now it is all the time, with the alarm going off.

On many long drives in hot weather when I have stopped briefly and turned off the engine, it will not start up again for about 30 minutes. Has happened many times but dealer cannot find a problem and has no idea what the problem is even though it has happened over several years.

Hello,
My timing belt was just replaced along with the timing idler pulley, timing belt tensioner, serpentine belt, tensioner and idler pulley, spark plugs, and valve cover gasket. It drove great yesterday but this morning when I was taking my son to school the engine started knocking. It does this idling and at slow speeds. Once driving the noise disappears. Does anyone have any suggestions on what this may be?

at about 80 mph when going up a hill the vehicle has a slight miss or surging almost like its fighting the wind.

I have a 2005 Ford Escape 6 cylinder AWD and am changing the transmission fluid. I've seen the drain plug near the front, 7/16 socket needed, under the rubberized skid plate described. Mine has the plug near the rear, recessed plug where you only need a racket and no socket similar to the 2001 model. Is this normal for a 2005? Did they change the position of the plug during the 2005 year?
Also, I've seen five quarts of Mercon V recommended for a darn and fill. I've also hear this is a bit too much and 4 quarts is better. In the service manual, it says 10.2 quarts. I added five ran it shortly and it's over the fill mark. suggestions?

I asked if they would be able anything else that might be going wrong with my vehicleon the way down. Replied all looked good. I'm taking that my engine might be in good shape. He said dismantling the truck that much he wouldve noticed something wrong. Is that correct? Truck runs great now.

Trying to change out the third coil pack

2004 Ford Escape XLS 6cyl. 4 wd. When i apply any pressure on gas pedal whether in town or freeway the rpms shoot up then come down. I changed tranny fluid and add a qt. of Lucas no slip but it still does it. I'm hoping i don't have to replace transmission. Bad coupling? What could the problem be? I never turned off OD when driving in town until recently. Could that have done damage? HELP

also what would be wrong if the cruise control, if you can set it then shuts itself off

I have to pull over and shut it off and it restarts but it's happening more often. Someone said it's a computer that needs reset?
