Escape SE 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission

Car battery keeps draining from sitting. Had called towing twice and had help jumping 4 more times. I believe I have an amp draw that stays even when the vehicle is off. I was ready to get a jump on 2.15.21 and while I was lifting the hood I kept hearing ticking noises when the car was completely off. The battery was tested and passed. The ticket said its low on charge and I don't understand why. I keep my display off and nothing is plugged in and no lights were left on. I am trying to get it in the shop to find out what is the cause of drain. After reading few other issues I have a suspicion on the auto-start engine feature in my dashboard. It's frustrating because I have to keep calling people to save me. Sadly this will be my first and last Ford.

This is the third time it has happened, about once a month so far. The dealer has no clue as to the cause of the problem. I am tired of paying for a car, I cannot depend on. The dealer replaced the battery time 3, but to get to the dealer is 45 minutes away, soon to be 75 minutes away. Summer traffic nightmare. Not a keeper on this one.
