2006 Ford Escape would not start, probably low battery. Now the Battery Light is on ? Why ?


Asked by Nov 25, 2013 at 03:39 PM about the 2006 Ford Escape Limited AWD

Question type: General

Low Battery in my 2006 Escape  V - 6   jumped it, and drove it a while.

My instrument lights went out before I shut the car off....the battery light was on.
The battery light was the only light on .... on the dash instrument cluster.  When  I tried to restart the car it just clicked... the dead battery sound.
Is this just a bad Battery or is it something else ?
Could someone please advise me,  thank you   al

providing that your battery is newer than five...follow the end of the black clamping wire to the end where it attaches to the frame/ground....wirebrush that lug...wirebrush that spot...put them together for renewed power...also the 1/0 wire that goes to the engine (near the alternator)~
