For escape battery charging


Asked by Guru992CT2 Oct 17, 2020 at 12:30 PM about the 2016 Ford Escape Titanium AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, I have a Ford Escape 2016 and the
battery is not working.
I want to charge the battery, do I need to get
the battery out or I can charge it while it is
hooked in the car? Also, do I use the negative
connected to the side or I have to use the
negative in the battery itself?

2 Answers


The negative is way inside and is not reachable, however, it is hooked into another location beside the battery and is used for jump start the cad shall I use this one instead of the actual negative pole in the battery or I have to use the battery one. As per the picture the spot circled in red

Guru8992CT2 was very helpful. To confirm my connection I made to my 2016 Ford Escape. We are having single digit temps so I bought a battery maintainer to help during the coldest time and wanted to confirm my connection to the battery. Again, thank you Guru8992CT2 for the picture!!
