No start...fuel pump not coming on

Asked by Jun 18, 2017 at 11:46 AM about the 2005 Ford Escape Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had a mis fire coil pac #2 replaced spark
plugs, ran about 10 minutes, engine cut
off...now, no start..fuel pump not coming
on.  Fuse, relay, inertia switch all good.
Key off, battery voltage at the fuel pump,
key on, drops to .9 volts. Power at the fuel
control module under the vehicle.
Something strange...maybe unrelated, but
since the no start, the alarm will come on
at random times for about 30 seconds
every few days. Body control module? Will
that cut off the fuel? The alarm indicator
lite on the dash operates like it's
supposed to by going out 2 seconds after
the key is switched on. Been 2 weeks,
can't figure this ghost in the machine
out....HELP

"Body control module? Will that cut off the fuel?" Yes, if equipped with immobilizer it will. Couple of suggestions, unplug battery, test battery voltage and load test battery. Hook back up if it tests o.k. if not replace. If things work o.k. again good if not have a Ford VDS read done if not your unlikely to solve this one. Other thoughts are a faulty fuel pump driver's module but you said you checked that out. I think. Would also verify that misfire was./or was not coil related. That's all I got, Hopefully the reset will get you there, a bad battery can do some really strange things so if you need one get one Good Luck!

Cleaned the battery terminals, vcc @12.5, vcc @ fuel pump 11.5 with key off on the two top terminals, one side of the plug to ground vcc@12.5, other side, same. Looks like a trip to the dealer on a roll back...argggg
