#1 of 130 running lights flickering
May 05, 2008 (9:52 pm)
I have a 2004 escape and the running lights (just the head lights) are flickering, when I turn the lights on full the problem goes away. It's a constant flashing even when I step on the gas. Can anyone help? Thanks
#2 of 130 Beep, buzz noise
May 10, 2008 (9:30 am)
I have an 06 Escape XLS FWD 5-spd mnl w/37K on it. This morning, my wife goes out the car and hears a faint beep/buzzing sound. She opens the door and there is a steady high-pitched buzz. We open and close the doors, turn the engine on and off, activate the security system and then deactivate it. This goes on for about 20-30 minutes (may have been going on all night). Then, it stops.
Anyone have any similar experiences? Thanks.

duh, replying to myself on the "beep, buzz" problem. The problem occurred on the second consecutive day, same problem, same time, same result. On the third day, I unlocked the car manually with the key in the door, the same noise appeared. We figured it out! In the back section of our Escape was a box of old bicycle parts in which there was a "horn" that was going off. Duh.......sorry to anyone trying to help us out with the problem.
#4 of 130 2004 Ford escape/battery drain
Sep 28, 2008 (2:31 pm)
My 2004 Ford Escapes battery , if not run will go completely dead in 2 to 3 weeks. I hooked up an amp meter to find that .12 amp is being drained. I then removed all fuses one at a time. The only one to make a difference was #27 which has the following in it's circuit:audio,cluster lamps,interior lamp,maplamp,cargolamp,datalink connector and GEM. After removing that fuse the current dropped to .02 amp. Observations: the radio is off,no lites are on. I do not know what the datalink connector or the GEM are. Thats where my troubleshooting ended. Any information/advise would be appreciated. JEL.

GEM stands for General Electrical Module and it controls pretty much all the dash electrical functions. I am not a technician so I dont know whats causing your problem, but I do work for a Ford dealer and we sell quite a few GEM modules that go bad. Not necessarily for Escapes only but modules non the less. I would get it checked by a Ford dealership, perhaps that is the culprit of your problem.
#6 of 130 Ford Escape rear wiper
Nov 18, 2008 (2:37 pm)
I have a Ford Escape with no owners manual. My rear wiper stopped working and I wanted to check if it was a blown fuse. There is a fuse box under the hood as well as at the foot of the passenger. There is no diagram showing the back wiper and either fuse box lid. Does anyone know which fuse box and which fuse it may be so I can check it.

Sorry, mfenn my part catalog does not tell me what fuse goes to what, you will have to do it the hard way and pull every single fuse out and check if any of them are blown. sorry!
