2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. Parking lights won't turn off even…

Customer Question
2006 Ford Escape Hybrid...

2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. Parking lights won't turn off even if I pull the fuse. I'm Dave.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Not sure what else to say. Key is out, everything else is off. Lights stay on.

The lights that are staying on are the top bulbs at the rear and the outside bulbs at the front.

I don't see anything like that panel. Just fuses. Do I have to remove the large panel which holds the small access panel?
Ford Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

The relay is on rear of fuse box so fuse box will need to be removed. Let me know how it goes or if you run into more questions. Thanks.

OK. Let me remove it and take a look.
Ford Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

No problem, keep me updated. Thanks.

How do I remove the fuse panel? It appears I have to take the right cover off the whole center console.

Those are instructions for the power distribution box under the hood, not the relays behind the interior fuse box.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Well, I guess they are for the interior fuse panel, but these instructions are worthless to anyone but a Ford mechanic. I am not happy with your reply or instructions.
Ford Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

It sounds like you are probably better off bringing vehicle to shop at this point. I'm sorry I could not be of more help, I hope you do not take it out on me that job is harder then expected. Thanks.

Would you like me to open question back up for someone else to help?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, I won't give you a bad review. But your instructions were really not helpful except in illustrating that this is a huge task which involves more than just replacing a relay. I hope I am not charged for this.
Ford Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

I'll put in refund request

Or would you prefer me open question back up so someoen else can walk you through repair?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. It requires a lot of messing around including retraining the system after battery is reconnected. I'm in 2 feet of snow.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
