2002 ford escape dies after starting
my 2002 ford escape dies after about 30 min and the battery is completely dead. I have replaced battery and alternator cant think of anything else anyone have a suggestion please help?
Check the fuel filter. If it hasn't been changed in some time it can be clogged up. I would start there. Please keep us advised. Hope that helps..
What does a fuel filter have to do with a battery going dead????
Next would be the crankcase sensor if equipped.. MAF sensor..
They said it dies after thirty min. They didn't say that they kept trying to crank it over..
I fixed the problem the ground cable from the battery to the frame was loose and not letting the battery charge or show the that there was any power
The alternator you purchased was it new or reman? you want to start by going to the place of purchase and having them load test it to make sure its charging. If its charging you can try this make sure you have a full charge on the battery this is a real good video to test for a short...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5FJDgcdii8
That's great, glad you didn't change your fuel filter to find the short....

Kelly was spot on! U weren't even close you should be ashamed of yourself. Trying to get me to spend a bunch of money on stuff that wasn't even the problem.. Have a good day. ;)
