THIS SHOULDN'T HURT NUTHIN'

INSURE YOUR BATTERY IS AT 100% (A POPULAR PARTS STORE CAN TEST YOUR WHOLE CHARGING SYSTEM--USUALLY FOR FREE)---INSURE YOU GET THE WHOLE TEST, NOT JUST THE BATTERY TEST

IF ALL IS GOOD

DISCONNECT YOUR NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE--FOR 10 MINUTES OR SO---RECONNECT---THIS MAY RESET YOUR COMPUTER

IF ALL WAS NOT GOOD WITH THE TEST

REPAIR YOU RIG (ALTERNATOR IF IT'S BAD)

REPLACE THE BATTERY IF IT'S BAD

IF YOUR CURRENT BATTERY JUST NEEDS CHARGING (RE-CHARGING)---DO THIS WITH MR. BATTERY COMPLETELY DISCONNECTED FROM THE VEHICLE---THIS WILL ALLOW THE COMPUTER TO RESET ALSO

REGARDLESS.....THE COMPUTER MUST RECOGNIZE A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY BEING CONNECTEDIF IT WASN'T TAKEN LOOSE----IT MAY STILL SEE THE "LOW VOLTS" IT WAS SUBJECTED TO

THIS COULD HELP A BUNCH TOO....I'VE DONE THIS SEVERAL TIMES RECENTLY AT ADVANCE....I'VE SHARED IT WITH MANY OTHERS ALSO....THIS IS PAGE 3 OF JUST ONE OF THE JEEP CJ 5 OR 7 POSTS I ANSWER (MY FAVORITE FORUMS)----MY WIFEY HAS A '03 ESCAPE TOO

SHOULD YOU GO THIS ROUTE---YOU ONLY HAVE TO WAIT AN HOUR AFTER BUYING ONLINE---PUT YOUR "EXACT CORRECT INFO" INTO "MY VEHICLE" THEN INSURE THE BATTERY OR PARTS YOU DESIRE SAY "EXACT FIT FOR YOUR 2003 FORD ESCAPE" UNDERNEATH THE WRITE UP"FIT VARIES" IS MOST LIKELY NOT GONNA FIT YOUR RIG

KEEP ME INFORMED.....RIGHT NOW....THE SITE JUST GOT REMODELED....WE (OR I) ARE NOT RECEIVING EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS WHEN SOMEONE RESPONDS......IF YOU DON'T HEAR BACK AFTER YOU REPLY...TRY AGAIN IN 24 HOURS OR SO......I CHECK MY STUFF SEVERAL TIMES A DAY AS I HAVE TIME.....I ALWAYS RESPOND (WHEN I KNOW TO)

I MAY BE WRONG WITH MY ANSWER---BUT NOTHING WAS HARMED---NOTHING $$$ SPENT ON A WILD GUESS
