I have a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid. I just returned from vacation for a month and the " Pull Over Safely" light has come on and naturally the car will not start. This is the 2nd time this has happened.

Asked by Jun 04, 2017 at 08:23 AM about the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This is the 2nd time this has happened. Took it to the dealer first time and they
charged me 178.00 to recharge the hybrid battery.  Is this the same problem
and how do I keep it from happening again short of having a neighbor start my
car and charge the hybrid battery every other day? getting frustrating.

You may have to bite the bullet and have the shoreline plug installed with all the electronics that go along with it, and then just plug it in when your gone for extended periods.

Is a " shoreline plug" the same as a trickle charger fir the low voltage 12 volt battery in the rear? If so where do I purchase this beast how how much is this going to " bite me"? Thanks alot!

No, this is something the dealer will need to install, it consists of an electronic controller and is wired into the Hybird batteries and the fancier version also includes a float for the gas engine, last I heard the system costs 1500 bucks, did not include labor. As yours is an 08 it may have to be ordered. Check with your local Ford dealer for more information.

a ford dealer can recharge the FEH hybrid battery?
