Customer Question
I have a 2015...

I have a 2015 Titanium escape . I just had a new door put on due to an accident now the battery won't keep a charge.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

The battery was tested and i was told that its ok.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escape yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had a diagnostic check ran and everything was ok except it said there was anise with the an issue with restraints and driver assistance

You need to perform a parasitic draw test. The battery could be going dead for a number of reasons. The only way to diagnose a battery drain is to measure current draw. You need a multi meter set to amps. remove negative battery cable and connect meter in series with negative cable and negative post on batter. You will then start removing fuses one at a time until the meter reads the draw has gone down. Once you know the fuse you will be able to narrow down the circuit and the individual modules on that circuit need to be isolated.

Please reply to this if you need more help and we can continue this conversation. This does not have to be my only answer. If you are satisfied with my service, please rate at the top of the screen. Rating does not close out your question. Remember, sometimes it is difficult to completely diagnose your vehicle without being there, but I will try to give you the best answer I can.

Please Rate 5 stars and it would be greatly appreciated.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
