At a stop light my heat-air coming out of the interior vents go cold and warms back up when I start moving again. The Heat gauge is in normal operating range and coolant level is normal.
Returning last night from a holiday trip, my tail lights would not operate. This happened before, several weeks ago, and I simply turned the light switch (turn signal column) until they worked. This simple remedy did not have any effect last night, and we had to drive 200 miles with the emergency flashers on to reduce the possibility of being hit from the rear, in the dark.
The rotors are very noisy, and that indicates that the rotors are very worn.

My 2007 Ford Escape is hard to start when humidity is high. Cranks for a long while. I turn it off then on, starts OK. Once started, starts fine the rest of the day. No problem in dry weather, hot or cold. Battery has been tested and it's strong.

I had problem with my battery, turning the car off and playing music for even a second will kill my battery.

I have sudden battery issues and had to jump start the vehicle about 4times recently. I read somewhere online that, opening the truck with remote key whiles the car is lock drains the battery.
I also, had a jump this weekend, and my Hood ESP and BAS warning lights came on and wont go away.
What can i do? This is the worse car i have ever had. This R500 was assembled hastily, and the did not put effort into it to accomodate consumers. How can they possibly put the battry under the passenger seat without any easy way of taken it out. Outrageous. Will advocate to Ban this vehicle.
