I had teh same problem with my '01 escape XLY except my friend tripped it by opening the door, and so my alrm went off adn i had to wait till my car died to reset it. i should have had the security system switched to my new auto start system :/

Our 2004 Escape went dead from sitting. recharged it and now the battery is fully charged. it will turn over but not catch. we left the battery unhooked overnight, replaced the FOB battery, had AAA come with a computer to analyze it....now waiting on a tow truck. this seems like it should be a quick fix.
