2006 Ford Escape Slow to Start..Electrical Issue

Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 Ford Escape 4 CLY. It is slow to start. Today I turned the switch on and I could hear a faint noise like a motor or relay humning.. I continued to hold the key in the start position never released it for about 5-7 seconds. The faint noise stopped and then it started. I turned it off and it restarted easily. This has been happening for about 3 weeks. If I retry several times (on/off-on/off.  it will finally start. Once it had the rachette sound like a low battery.   I charged the almost new battery 3 mo NAPPA. I thought it could be it had lost the ground. I tested with the positive post and the frame and it has good ground. No check engine lights appear. Runs like it should after starting. I have not tested for engine codes. I am thinking...Alternator, relay, starter switch. loose wire.  Any suggestions.
