Just bought a 2012 escape and the engine won't turn over, no

Customer Question

just bought a 2012 escape and the engine won't turn over
JA: Does the engine spark at all? Is there a trouble code or is your "check engine light" on?
Customer: no lights that i can see though the touchscreen says powering down to save battery
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: just fiddling with it, tomorrow I will try jumping it
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: just wanted to see if there was anything dumb i was doing or should be doing
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.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

What liter engine?

It will not crank, correct?

With the key on, is the theft light off and the check engine light on?

Do the headlights shine bright and remain bright while trying to start?

I got it figured out, I just jumped it. Thanks

Glad you got it figured out. That is why I was asking about the headlights.
