my kk died

yerterday morning went to start my kk, and boom dead, sounded like a dead battery to me (battery is maybe a year old, but who knows) took my other car, want to work and when i got back i tried to jump start the car and still nothing, some times you can see on the panel the word fuse, check engine light is on and flashes 10 times and stays on.

all you can hear is the tac, tac, tac, tac. but no sight of starter motor trying to turn....

i have 44k miles and extended warranty and i think i am going to call tomorrow to the dealer to come a pick it up.

any clues??????

Any word from the dealer? ...Any ideas what-so-ever as to what may have caused it? ...Perhaps anything electronic that you had touched in the days leading up to the "death"...?

I was removing a marker signal bulb housing at one point to steal power for a headlight/LED mod. A "no brainer" mod really. I must have been a little rough with it or something, ...killed everything electronic and wouldn't turn over. Decided to not be cheap, do it properly and re-wired. With a little help from my girlfriend's Festiva (not too proud about that), gave it a jump and, ...Voila! Major worries gone.

The purge valve did not cause a no start condition,that was what the MIL was on for and relates to the EVAP system which is just for emissions(fule vapor part of the emission system).The battery was your no start problem.I've seen brand new batteries,litterly less then 1 month old be bad.It happens and the batteries age has nothing to do with it being good or not when new vehicles are so senisitive to battery voltage.

I suspect bad grounding problem, some you tried with new battery. Or there is short some where, if this is the case your ford escape battery would have drained pretty fast.

Glad you got it fixed. I got to call the dealership again, just after having my Lib services for the "clock" and replacing the gas tank, now the blower control that direct air through the vents via, feet, window, and face will only direct air via window and feet and won't go to your face. I got 55K and another 5K my warranty is up
