A Jeep and an Escape are 2 different vehicles, BTW. A battery light lighting up n the dash means a charging issue. Since you have some clicking, I would inspect the battery first for a proper charge. You local auto part store can do that for you, remove it and drive it over with a ride from a friend or use a mutlimeter, should be over 12V. Once you get the Escape started, with the engine running probe the battery, you should have around 14V, that means the alternator is working properly. If not, then that will need to be swapped out.
