BATTERY RUNS DOWN FAST WHEN STARTING

2003 Ford Escape

Electrical problem
2003 Ford Escape 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 129605 miles

My Ford Escape will start every time when hooked up to jumper cables from another vehicle. But will run the battery down if it doesn't start on the first turn.

Have you had the starter tested to see if it is drawing too many amps?
