2011 Ford hybrid rapid clicking sound but won't start.

Asked by Jul 14, 2015 at 12:17 PM about the 2011 Ford Escape Hybrid Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car won't start.  Rapid clicking sound from behind driver's side dash. Has approximately 60,000 miles on it. Could it be the battery? Help please.

Certainly possible the battery is at fault (the battery under the hood). Have it tested. Also you should still be under warranty if there is a fault with the hybrid system.

Oh thank you! You were absolutely right-it was the battery. Funny that the clicking could only be heard from inside the car--not under the hood. Thanks again. Sharron


That was causing me to think about it also. You would have thought the clicking would have been heard under the hood. Glad you found it, might want to get the charging system checked if the battery is good, but only discharged.
