Customer Question
It is 9 pm...

It is 9 pm here in Hawaii and I am leaving work and my car will not start. All the lights come on the buttons and bells but it will not start!

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Head lights, interior lights, my hatch back opens when I push the button

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2013 Ford Escape Titanium

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

I have checked the oil, brake fluid, battery connections

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am not a mechanic but not unfamiliar with mechanic work but it is the new msystems that confuse me

Push Button Start mode. Now the dash screen says "Vehicle Transport Mode Active"
Please Contact your dealer

To diagnose a no crank/start situation with a push button start. A diagnostic tool is needed. Do you have access to one?

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.
