Re: Chirping sound in Escape '08

4 actuators? Everything I've seen had 2 in the dash. Do you have documentation on all 4?

Here are good links to PDFs showing what I thought were the only 2......

Re: Chirping sound in Escape '08

I had a similar noise that was traced to the instrument cluster pod not being fully seated in the dash for some reason. Try to lift it up and reseat it.
Might also help if we knew the location of...

Re: Ford Recalls 900K Escapes / Mariner 2008-2011

I didn't notice any extra effort or turning radius increase/decrease post-recall. I would be very surprised if whatever change Ford made actually increased or decreased the turning radius, as that's...

Re: Just bought first hybrid 06 AWD FEH

Nice job. Hybrids are definitely the way to go, especially in CA with our $4/gallon gas!

Re: 2013 C-Max Energi

To hopefully add something helpful, we just sold our 08 FEH via private party for $9500 after 1wk on CL, which was far more than the $6000 the stealership offered. I couldn't get them to budge above...

Re: Engine doesn't shut off when stopped

I'm going off memory here, but it sounds like a PATS (passive anti-theft system) module problem. Have you searched the forum here, or googling for an answer already?
Here's an interesting thread:...

Re: "Stop Safely Now"

Pretty much what I did. Our FEH served us well after replacing the traction battery actuator and MECS Pump, but it was always a bit of a rattle trap. We just bought a 2014 C-Max Hybrid and love it so...

Re: "Stop Safely Now" when engine should kick in 07 FEH

Be careful using code scanners that don't have manufacturer-specific code definitions stored. Generic code scanners won't see any Ford-specific codes for instance.

I'm not sure on the relay since...

Re: "Stop Safely Now" when engine should kick in 07 FEH

SSN warning could also be the relay issue that controls the MEC Pump, or the Pump itself needing replaced (more likely). Have you taken it to the dealership to run it for DTCs?

EDIT: Could also be...

Re: Ford Recalls 900K Escapes / Mariner 2008-2011

Interesting. My '08 has always been uneven at transition, which is likely why they changed to rear drums in '09 and did something else I can't remember now. The only thing that temporarily helps is...

Re: Vibration and shudder on startup

Sounds about right. Ask 2 different sets of eyes to look at something and they'll see two different things. And one or both sets may or may not be honest and ethical. I'd be surprised if the axle...

Wow, much lower mileage than I expected. I have almost 100k miles on mine and last time I was under it changing the oil I saw no evidence of any leaks whatsoever, and with modern gasket technology...

Re: Vibration and shudder on startup

I have no info screen that says anything like that so I take it you have a nav unit or something in yours. What mileage on the car? Tune up done? If there's a misfire, look at the plug and/or coil on...

Re: Vibration and shudder on startup

No idea what you mean by "battery is charging" and "no charging". You able to verify any recent tune-up work like air filter, plugs, correct engine oil, etc? Has the MAF sensor been cleaned? If it's...

Re: Key hard in insert

Mine has the same problem, and has since I bought it 2yrs ago. I'll see if I can fix it this weekend and post results. BTW everyone's vehicle type shows up in the top right of their posts. :-D

Re: Ford Recalls 900K Escapes / Mariner 2008-2011

Yeah, 08 fwd hybrid. This is actually my first new car purchase ever. I got the ruby red metallic with charcoal cloth. I'm also curious how many recalls end like that, but I've been looking at the...

Re: Ford Recalls 900K Escapes / Mariner 2008-2011

Same here yesterday. Apparently no need to replace the column, just a flash. Took less than 1hr and I was out test driving a C-Max Hybrid when I got the completion phone call. Ended up buying the...

Re: 100k maintenance

Just check the owner's manual for proper 100k maintenance procedures, and use proper Ford or Ford-spec-rated parts. That being said, there's no power steering fluid (electric steering), nor should...

Re: 2005 w/code 9239

Just be aware it's like a $25 part free to change yourself, versus likely way more if the stealership does it. As for the A/C recharge, I, as well as many others, have had the same refrigerant leak...

Re: 2005 w/code 9239

Post #1 in this thread says it maps to DTC B1239, which apparently is indeed the traction battery blend door actuator.

Re: 05 FEH getting SSN message with lots of codes

Mine flashed many codes that didn't even pertain to engine parameters, including a code for the 12V Battery, which clued me into it being weak and causing all the other codes. My battery load tested...

Re: Ford Recalls 900K Escapes / Mariner 2008-2011

Nice, thanks for that. I just called the dealership and am scheduled for 8/11. Will update on whether the column gets replaced, or if the PSCM just gets flashed.
