2002 ford escape battery drained

Asked by Feb 23, 2017 at 07:57 AM about the 2002 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 ford escape V6 engine, I replaced the battery about 4 months
ago due to the same drainage problems, I went to my car this morning and
had the same not turning over and then clicking noise when trying to start it. I
have no knowleage of cars but the postive side has a cover on it but the
negative side does not.

The cover is for the positive side of the battery. Even if there was no cover that be fine. But you need to take it to someone who can trace down a parasitic draw on the battery.

So at this point you need to charge the battery back up. Also would be a good idea to have the charging system checked. If the charging system is working fine, then it will need to be checked for that parasitic draw.
