2002 ford escape abs, brake, airbag, and oil lights flashing

Asked by Nov 19, 2016 at 04:51 PM about the 2002 Ford Escape XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP! about 2 days ago my
2002 ford escape started acting weird. The ABS
light came on, then the airbag light and then idled
really low. I turned the car off & it had a hard time
starting again. Then today, again same issues but
then the oil light and E brake light started flashing
intermittently. A coutlet weeks ago I changed the
front passenger brake line as it was split open..?? I
checked the front drivers side and it was very worn,
but haven't changed it out yet. Can someone
please help me figure out where to start!?! Is it an
electrical issue or cluster issue? I need to figure
this out ASAP! I'm a single parent and this vehicle
is my only form of transportation!

I would start by having the engine and ABS codes read. This will give you clues as to what is going on.

Did you ignore the oil light or did you check the oil level?
