2008 Escape Hybrid didn't start this morning

Asked by May 06, 2014 at 10:52 AM about the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Wife tried to start her car but engine didn't crank/start. Thought the OEM battery died, but the lights came on bright.
Could the lights somehow run off the Hybrid battery? could the voltage on the 12 v car battery be too low to crank the engine and still power the lights, or do I have bigger problems
car is 6 yrs old with 50K miles

I have had this problem too where turning the key did not result in a start. I still don't know why this happens sometimes, but I found that if I push the key further into the housing while turning it, the car will start.
