Vehicle Would Not Start After Being Parked For Approximately One Hour. Tried Several Times To Start, Headlights And Dash Lights Would Illuminate, But There Was No Indication Of Any Power Going To Engine To Start. No Clicking (as With A Dead Battery – All Lights Were Functioning Properly). Waited 10 Minutes And It Started. Turned It Off Briefly To Go Inside To Tell Shop Owner That Car Had Started. Came Back Out, It Would Not Start Again. Tried Several Times To Restart And It Would Not. Left Car Where Parked And Called A Tow Truck To Take Car To Dealer In The Morning. Dealer Was Unable To Recreate The Problem And Was Able To Get The Car To Start Each Time. I Was Told That There Was Nothing They Could Do And To Pick Up My Car. Which I Did.

Once Again Vehicle Would Not Start After Being Parked For Over An Hour. Tried Several Times To Start. All Dash Lights And Headlights, Radio, Windows, Etc. Would Function, But No Indication Of Ignition When Key Was Turned. Tried Both Keys To Make Sure It Was Not A Bad Key. Neither Key Worked. Left Car Where Parked Overnight And Returned In The Morning. Car Started. Called Dealer And It Was Suggested That I Drive The Car In, Rather Than Have It Towed In. I Did. I Left The Car At The Dealer And Was Informed Later That Day That They Had Been Able To Verify My Compliant. They Indicated That It Was A Build Up Of Resistance In A Wire Then The Engine Was Hot. It Was Wrapped And I Was Assured The I Would No Longer Have The Problem. I Did Some Research And Found That Some 2013-14 fordescapes Have Been Recalled For Insufficient Compression Of Casing Around The Wiring, Causing Exactly The Problems I Have Been Having. All The Potential Problems Listed In The Recall, Short Of A Possible Crash Have Been Experienced To Date! My Vehicle Was Manufactured At One Of The Affected Assembly Plants During The Affected Dates. However, The Recall Indicates 2.0 Liter Engines. Mine Is A 1.6 Liter Engine. Therefore, Dealer Said They Could Not Do Anything For Me And Assured Me The Problem Had Been Solved. I Requested That The Wiring Harness Be Replaced Because I Felt Unsafe In My Vehicle And Was Afraid That It Would Stop Suddenly And I Could Crash. I Was Told That Repair Was Not Possible, Because My Specific Vin Was Not Recalled. I Was Assured That I Should Have No Further Problems. I Accepted The Return Of My Vehicle, With The Assurance That If It Happened Again, We Would Escalate My Request For Replacement Of The Wiring Harness. The Dealer Had My Car For Over A Week.

0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died. Mileage was 12790 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU0GXXEU. Ford Escape 2014 problem was reported in THE WOODLANDS, TX. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 0 mph.

Whenever Car Is On And Parked, Not Moving, Or Going Slower Than 20 Mph, The Air Conditioning Does Not Cool And Blows Extremely Hot Air Into The Car. If I Am In Traffic, At A Stop Light, Getting Drive Through, Or Parking The Car, It Quickly Gets Dangerously Hot. Right Now We Have 100+ Degree Days Consistently, With My Child In The Back Seat I Fear Driving My Vehicle In This Heat As It Is Known To Kill In Texas. My Father Is An Electrician And When I Told Him He Said It Looks Like An electrical Or Power Problem Because He Thinks The Car Idles Too Low.
