My 2004 won't shift out of Park unless you use the override switch

Off car. When trying to restart , clicking, and all lights on dash flash -randomly, not at same time. Headlights and interior lights ok.

When I press on the accelerator pedal past a certain point, the air flow still blows by sound but doesn't blow out vents. Then when I take my foot off gas pedal the air comes through the vents.

Sometimes it will come on flashing and stay on solid and sometimes it will flash then turn off. And sometimes it won't even come on. I was told it cld be the air bag or it cld be something with the seatbelt? Any idea

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.

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.

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

I have a 2004 Ford Escape 30k mileage that has not been driven in a year. What needs to be done to get it back on the road? There was nothing wrong with it prior to not being driven. Can I just charge the battery and drive it without breaking down?


After installing new rotors and brake pads on the front whiles, while driving I can hear some sound on the right side, like,sew,sew. The sound stops as soon I touch the brake pedal. Braking is normal and good. What should I adjust for the sound to stop. I only have 43.000 miles on it. Thank you,
