    • Hi, my daughter has a 2016 Escape base that has recently developed a an issue with the car(transmission??). The car was at a stop sign and when she took her foot off the brake pedal and placed it onto the gas pedal the car 'jolted' (her words). Something similar happened to her brother when he drove the car a few days ago. She talked with her boss, who also had a Ford Escape, and he had a similar issue that turned out to be a torque converter issue. Anyone heard of this? I don't see any recalls and so far I can't find any transmission or power-train TSB's but maybe someone here has a link to one.

      Second issue is the ac. Sometimes when she gets in the car and turns on her ac, there isn't any cooling coming out of the dash vents. She can feel the cool air on her feet or through the defroster - just not through the dash vents. She turns the ac off/on several times, as well as switching the selector button between the dash vents, floor, defrost, etc and it eventually starts working. My gut tells me that there is some kind of issue with the blend door because I had something like this on my other Ford vehicles.Is there a TSB or recall on this?

      Finally, my daughter has already had to have the rear back-up camera replaced (it didn't come on sometimes) and now that seems to be working. However, the actual radio will not come on sometimes? She hits the button to turn it on and nothing - it looks and acts dead. No lights, the screen is blank/off, no sound - nothing. Most times it works fine -just has the problem once in a while. Anyone know of/about or have any experience with this issue? Again, if there are any TSB's please let us know because we couldn't find any.

      My daughter is taking it to the dealer and if the issue doesn't happen when the vehicle is there, they usually blow you off. Having a TSB or two would be very helpful.

    • I just got an Escape handed down to me to get in running order for my son, but this forum doesn't seem very active.  Is there another forum that is THE one where everyone goes>. Just curious.
    • Earlier today I had an issue where the oil light on the dash came on when I was stopped. It was steady, did not flash or blink, then shut off when I hit the gas. I was using 4wd at the time. I did check and add a little bit of oil later this afternoon, as it was running lower. Considerations: I did not hear any rumbling or other abnormal sounds. This is the second time this happened since I owned this truck- both times were in the morning when it was around 25 degrees F outside. Last time it stopped in the afternoon and didn’t happen again until today. I suspect a sensor problem but am not sure.  Anyone else have similar issues?
    • Hello,   I am the owner of a 2015 Ford Escape S.  My battery died a couple of months ago and ever since my clock settings have been off and I had been unable to reset it manually.   I finally took it to the dealer this week and they needed to perform an APIM reset since there was a hard fault in the system.  They charged me $280 for this work.  When I asked why the price was so high they mentioned that it involved a pin point test of all of the different modules (HVAC, navigation, compass, etc.)     Has anyone else experienced this?  I am wondering now if there was something I could have done on my own to avoid this costly trip to the dealer.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    • hi all,
      nice to meet you and feels good to be part of this forum.
      i own a 2019 ford escape: titanium edition
      i was stopped on the HOV lane in staten Island and i get hit from behind from some small Toyota.
      the ford was fine but his car was so low that it went under my ford and his front got messed up big time.

      i get out to assess the damage and the lower part of my bumper is cracked from end to end.
      the black hard plastic part.. sorta looks like a skirt... it sits on the lower and of the rear bumper.
      also now on my console.... the park button stays light "OFF" and when i press the park assist button, a warning comes upn saying there was a fualt then car symbol shows up with a 3redndot on it.. (see photos)
      the backup cam works fine.

      any ides what this could be?
      or how to fix?
      could it be the sensors?
    • I was wondering if anyone had swapped out the navigation stock head unit in a first gen escape? I have an 07 Mariner Hybrid that has the factory navigation. Their website says 08 and up. I'm looking for something that will let the aftermarket head unit talk to the factory modules.
