Customer Question

The wrench light came on in 2011ford escape. Lost power. Stopped and turned engine off restarted and fine. Happened again same night. 75000miles on it
JA: Have you checked the spark plugs? When was your air filter last changed?
Customer: Haven't checked plugs. Was told air filter fine at last oil change. Computer malfunction?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No mechanical skills! Will call local ford service when they open
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No. Comments on web seem to say it occurs without real reason. Surely ford has gotten complaints about this before
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi ,

Good morning .

This Wrench light comes ON when the management system finds a problem with in the system .

Most cases going from what you described i would say you have a problem with the electronic throttle body

Could be just a wiring issue to a bad PCM .

You need to get to a good repair shop or dealer and have the system checked for malfunction codes .

From the codes you will know what is the problem .

There is a lot of throttle body complaints on the 2011 escape and typical price for this repair is around $430us.

and typical miles id 60 - 70.000 miles when this problem happens .

Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,
