    Speedometer Malfunction

    I got an appointment today to get the cluster replaced. But there was a problem. The car was imported from Canada as used and the local USA Ford dealer ordered a Canadian cluster based on the VIN number. I'm under the impression that Canadian cars are required to have the cluster replaced when they come to the USA for sale so they are mph-centric instead of km/hr-centric. So now the dealer doesn't know the validity of the manufacturer's warranty on the bad cluster since a replacement cluster may not be covered. I've also lost nearly 7,000 miles on the readout. They said they got the mileage from the powertrain. This has had me confused for several hours but I think I've got a clue. There was 18,155 miles on the old cluster and 11,168 miles on the new cluster. If I divide 18,155 km by 1.60934 km/mile = 11,281 miles. Thing is the old cluster was set to miles so why is the powertrain reducing the new cluster mileage like the old one was in kilometers? I'm asking the dealer to replace the Canadian cluster with a USA one but there was nothing they could do today due to the hour of the day. It's very iffy what has turned up. There's no mention in the Carfax of the cluster being replaced when it came into the USA and there was no mileage glitch like what I'm seeing today. I thought maybe the powertrain was taken offline and it stopped counting miles at 11,168 miles when the cluster came from Canada and was replaced. I don't know that the original Canadian cluster was ever replaced except that the dealer ordered a Canadian one based on the VIN and replaced the American one.

  4. Hi everyone I’m new to this forum. I could use your help in identifying a part number for a heater hose for my daughter 2014 escape. I remove the hose and noticed it has one quick connect and the other 2 are clamp connects. I have contacte a couple auto parts stores, and the ones they carry have 2 quick connects and one clamp connect. Unfortunately it’s not allowing my to upload pictures. It’s has a T connector, one hose connect with a quick connect next to the alternator that has an outlet that goes to a hose that connects to the coolant reservoir bottle. Another hose connects into an inlet on the right side of the motor with a clamp. The third one connects to an inlet under the oil filter also with a clamp. All the hoses I been shown have to 2 quick connectors. I was told part # CV6Z 18472 AB would work. But again that has 2 quick connects. Any help will be appreciated. The hose is located under the engine to the rear. And the 2 hose run up.

    no lights inside or out

    I opened the driver's door on my 2023 Escape Platinum and there were no lights anywhere. Interior and exterior lights did not come on. Dash did not illuminate at all. The car sat in the garage for about three days. It did start right away but the center console and dash took a little longer than normal to come on. The car is a standard ICE model but acted like it was in deep sleep, or in some energy conservation mode. Is this the new normal?

    Ignition key removal

    Have this problem in an 02 Focus. It appears to be happening on the shifter side of the interlock, as often shaking the shifter a few times will get it to let go. Planning to pull the whole shifter out when I get around to doing other major work on the car, (needs a new head after launching the #2 plug enough times there are no threads left, though it's gone a few thousand miles with JB Weld holding the plug in, I know that can't last forever and the next failure might not be so easy to fix) so I'll follow up if I can figure out what exactly is sticking.

    Keep Alive Power

    Are you still around? Did you ever figure this one out? Sounds like i may have something similar going on with my new-to-me 04. Power locks only work with the key on, making the remote useless. Radio and OBDII port have no power. Overhead interior lights are all dead. Lighter works with the key on. Power port works all the time.
  9. Thanks for the reply. I got a better picture of it and it turns out it the the pre collision warning indicator. It comes on when traveling on a two lane road with oncoming traffic. I still could not find it in the owner's manual.
  10. It looks like a "keep your hands on the steering wheel warning light." If you don't keep your hands on the steering wheel for some amount of time, say 10 seconds, a warning may pop up. If you have one hand on the wheel, it won't trigger; but with no hands on the wheel it will trigger.
  11. I have a yellow indicator light that comes on randomly on my new Ford Escape Platinum. It is not documented in the owner's manual and the dealer is not certain what it is since there are no DTC codes. It looks like a lanke keeper icon with a gear symbol below it. The lane keeper feature was turned off when the indicator came on. I tried to get a picture of it but it is blurry. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Speedometer Malfunction

    I bought a used 2021 Ford Escape SEL 2.0L in late May 2023 and it had around 16K miles on it. There was a 90 day dealer warranty on it that expired and there's still a 3 year 36K mile manufacturer's warranty on it until next spring. During the first month I had a couple problems with the speedometer. I was making a longish 50 mile trip and I found myself going much slower past a roadside radar sign than my speedometer said I was going. I got out my Google Maps on my phone to check my speed and if it said I was doing 35 mph in a 45 mph zone, my speedometer said I was doing 45 mph. I wasn't using the digital speedometer at the time and hadn't switched to it, I'm talking about the needle speedometer. So there was a 10 mph discrepancy that the speedometer was reading too fast for my actual speed. On another trip, the needle speedometer was reading 30 mph over my actual speed and when I came to stop lights it was still reading 30 mph. When I shut off my car it would still stay at 30 mph. I'd leave the car to go shopping and come back and suddenly it fixed itself and said 0 mph. I took it to the dealer on another day and they didn't find anything wrong. So there wasn't any problem for a few weeks, then suddenly one morning the problems wouldn't stop. I'd get to 45 mph, slow down for a speed zone, then speed up again and the speedometer was reading 35 mph over my actual speed. I'm going down the road at 55 mph and it says I'm going 90 mph. This was still before I figured to display the digital speedometer. The speed cameras inside the car would blink the speed limit sign on the dash if I went 5 mph over the speed limit so that worked correctly. I wondered if it could be a speed sensor, but then why would the speed camera light be accurate? On another day it did some reverse malfunctions and only went to 30 mph despite my going 45 mph. It would come down when I went below 30 mph, but would continue to get stuck at 30 mph maximum. The speeds it would get stuck at would change so there's nothing absolutely special about these numbers except that without using the digital display I wouldn't know. So I made a lot of start and stop moves that day; I'd drive a quarter mile, watch it get stuck at 30 mph, then pull over the car and shut off the engine. After a few minutes, anywhere from 2-5 minutes, sometimes I have to open the car door and shut it to speed it up, but a computer-like noise would sound inside the car and the needle would drop back to 0 mph when it was stuck at 30 mph. As I did this repetitively, the malfunction would change from reading a maximum of 30 mph to reading 30 mph over what I was actually going. So I went and bought some windshield wiper fluid because I ran out and the dash said I did, and the clerk there recommended I go to the local Ford shop and tell them instead of driving 50 miles to the nearest associated with my purchase Ford dealer shop for repairs since I'm under manufacturer's warranty now. So I drove 1 mile up the road and the guy there saw the dial stuck at 40 mph while I was idling my car there. I didn't want to shut off the engine because the speedometer would reset after a few minutes, supposedly, it didn't always reset. So he set me up with an appointment for yesterday. There was nothing wrong with the car yesterday, but the day before I drove 30 miles on the interstate and it was fine until I got off the interstate and hit some traffic lights then the needle started reading 30 mph over again. Luckily it fixed itself while I was shopping in the mall and the drive home was OK. I use cruise control on the interstate, so I'll assume that's connected to the digital speedometer, but I'm not sure. So the service guy drove it from their parking lot into the service area and they found it sticking at 10 mph. The got a code of U3000 and quantified that with "miscommunication to the IPC (Instrument Panel Cluster)." They will order me a new IPC and it will arrive next week. I don't know how much these cost but it could be anywhere from $500-$1500 depending on where you look, but it's under warranty this time, whew! I asked about how they will transfer the mileage from the old cluster to the new cluster and they said the powertrain will tell it the real mileage. I hope the real mileage is under 36,000 miles. There's so much odometer fraud by dealers these days, there's no way to know. But a U3000 code is very serious but they didn't recommend I stop driving my car because I can still use the digital speedometer. There's also a semi-circular groove on the plastic housing of the speedometer between 20 to 40 mph at the edge of where the needle goes, so maybe the needle is getting hung up on the housing? I took videos and photos but the Ford shop did not want to see any of that before they ran their codes, and they never did see them. The 16 second video I have of the speedometer resetting is too large for this post. The two photos posted show the car when it is turned off. Eventually the dash lights turn off so everything looks dark.

    A/C blower motor relay

    Problems witha/c blower motor relay?
  14. Two weeks after delivery the audio failed on my 2023 Escape PHEV. Audio display stuck at 0 so no radio, no navigation voice prompts, no voice activations and no phone. Soft reset did not work. Took it back to dealer. The dealer performed a hard reset and noted the issue had happened before I took deivery and that the reset would probably not last (it did'nt) so a new DSP module was ordered. Of course it's on backorder. May arrive mid October. So if does arrive in mid October and it does fix the issue I will have been without audio for 2 of 3 months of ownership. My questions are..... Is there a non Ford replacement DSP I could get sooner? What would you do? Take the car back to the dealer and ask for a functioning vehicle till mine is fixed? It seems others have had this issue but I'm usure of the number so don't know if it's a big issue or fairly isolated. BTW I'm in Canada.
  15. Hello, thank you for clicking on this. Please let me know if you have a solution for the complaints below, and how else I could better improve my car Lights that D dim in and out on the front dash panel. When connected to Bluetooth music, the music will play, and then disconnect for a random of odd amount of time, and then reconnect automatically, and play again Same concept as above connect to USB Sometimes the power button does not work on the front, middle Consol panel as well, such as I’ll press the power button to turn on the air conditioning, and it seems like it doesn’t work. But then goes back to normal. Sometimes the battery light will come on for a couple of seconds, and then go back again
  16. 2012 Ford Escape Limited 3.0L v6 I am at my wits end. A little history on the problem. It shut off on my wife last week while she was inside clocking in at work. It took a few tries to get it to start but it finally did. It went dead acting like it was giving out of gas twice till she finally parked it. After that it would just crank and not start. Got it towed home and a few days later replaced the crank shaft position sensor. It crunk up like new money and ran fine. Sounded good and everything. I let it sit and idle to build the battery but while me and a friend was talking it just shut off. It may have ran 5 mins and just died on us. I went back thinking maybe the new sensor was faulty and replaced it. Same thing. So today I changed out the camshaft position sensors and changed the oil. Same thing, crank with no start. I have also checked fuel pump and fuel pressure at the rail. I was getting a P016c or P061c error on my ODB scanner. That was what got me to change the sensors. Today after I changed the camshaft position sensors I got a different code. It was P068A. I cleared the errors and havent gotten that code again. So I'm not sure if it was a 1 off deal or not. Please any insight from anyone that has had similar issues please help. I'm trying to avoid putting it in a shop. Around here it takes forever to get vehicles back and it's our only ride. Also literally just paid it off a month ago. Please any help would be appreciated.

    Towing with 2008 Escape

    Hi. I was looking to move from Florida to Illinois. My 2008 Ford Escape has a towing capacity of 1500. I was planning on doing a transmission flush and oil change prior; but I am still concerned. I would get a dual axle 6x12 U-Haul trailer. Does anyone have feedback on long distance towing with their older Escape? My wife is very worried that the transmission will blow, and we will be stuck mid-move. Any input/advise would be greatly appreciated.

  23. Video of the chirping sound - windows down at first and then rolled up. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NZmURwruz4G2zJE849jdIFIJcfmwDvCs/view?usp=sharing
  24. I have a 2013 Escape SEL 1.6. My mechanic installed new front struts and links, rear shocks, and front brakes. When I got it back it was making a cyclic chirping noise that would change pitch when applying the brakes. This noise would not be present when first driving, but start after 5-10 mins of driving. I drove around 45 miles from home and it started making a high pitched squealing/screeching when I made 90 degree turns in either direction. Twice is kicked off my traction control. I took it back to the mechanic suspecting wheel/hub bearing. They found the left front hub bearing was very loose and sloppy. It had not been when they worked on it the week before. They replaced left front hub beating and speed sensor. Drove it home last night and the cyclic chirping was still present after a few minutes of driving. Took it back today and we drove around so they could hear it. They thought possibly gravel dust in brakes. Asked me to drive it for a week and see if it worked itself out, got better or worse, etc. I took it through the car wash and the sound was gone while wet, but then came back once brakes were dry. There is also now a slight metallic brushing sound that I heard at slow speeds when pulling in my drive and braking. There is also a light clunking or knocking when braking that wasn't present before. Any ideas what on earth is causing this? I'm about ready to just go trade this thing in on something new. Also of note, when they did shocks, struts, etc they also changed the serpentine belt and did spark plugs, insulators, and wires.

    2014 SE backup camera

    My '14 SE backup camera is acting odd. Sometimes works, sometimes dispalys upside down, sometimes it's black. I want to access it and the connectors, but don't see how or where to get to it. Any help? Thanks
  26. 2017 Titanium. ill push the button on the fob twice., hear noise but won't open. the warning says hatch open. ill push bottom it is relatches. It'll do the same thing with the interior button and when i manually hit button on tail gate. then i found a trick, hit lock, unlock then button on fob twice. it works sometimes. I'm scared to use it as i can't get it open except randomly. i could probably go outside in parking lot now, hit the fob twice and it would work. LOL
  27. Is there lumbar support for the 2012 Ford Escape? I could not find one. I noticed I could not find the lumbar support after I already purchased the SUV. What are my options? Does anyone know of aftermarket seat option?
