My 2009 Ford Escape hybrid has a problem with starting the ignition. It has been getting worse and worse for many months. I have to push it in and try over and over before the car starts. It also has so many of my warning lights on even tho the problems fixed or replaced.

No crank, no start. Ignition switch or starter issue. Been going on for years. If I pushed in and giggled it would start for a while, now it will not start at all. I had to push so hard to start it, the key almost broke several times.

While backing out of my driveway, my power steering suddenly and completely went out. A dashboard light came on which read "power steering assist fault." I drove to my Ford dealership and was told that my VIN was not on the recall list and the list was "VIN specific." I was told by the dealership the part that needed replacement is the torque sensor which is one of the parts specifically mentioned in the recall for the 2009 escape. The NHTSA website called the recall 14S05. I have been told it will cost approx. $900 to repair my vehicle.
