Hello everyone. I have a 2007 Escape with about 140,000 miles on it. Everything was working fine with the vehicle up until about April of this past year. The engine would randomly stall out when driving at highway speeds. This led to strange electrical issues where all the gauges would go down to zero, all dash lights would go out, and all internal electrical components would turn off.... for about 5 seconds, then all would come back to normal. This then led to the battery dying overnight. All of these things happened one at a time over the course of about a month, and currently all of these issues plague my vehicle. It has been sitting unused since April and I'd like to figure out some resolution as to why this is all happening. After all these things started happening, it was the slow and expensive process of replacing the main suspects one by one... the battery is new as of spring time, a new alternator was put in following the battery, the primary battery lines were inspected and all looked good. The vehicle can be jump started and it will idle perfectly, but when I accelerate down the driveway (or even if I just rev the engine in park), when the tach hits exactly 3000 RPM it's like the vehicle's electrical system shuts down. All gauges go to zero, all internal power is lost, and 5 seconds later it all comes back alive. This happens every single time I hit 3000 RPM. I have not taken it on the road so I have not experienced any further stalling, but I assume that may still be an issue as well.

Can anyone thing of any reason why this might be happening? I'd like to sell the vehicle but electrical gremlins are a big turn-off.
