Ford Escape 2005 Brainbox (ecu) Problems by bonnez(m): 11:39pm On Jan 14
Friends,

I own a 2005 Ford Escape with over 300,000 mileage but still very strong. The car developed a fault recently and when diagnosed I was told two cylinders had shut downhence the car couldn't drive well. The mechanic said my brainbox had gone bad and I coughed out money for another one. It was programmed and drove the car with my old key and seemed to work perfectly for about a week and the same thing happened again, blowing an ignition coil in the process. Now I'm told I have to buy another brainbox of which I am not just comfortable with. The mechanics/electricians I've contacted seem not to be able to race the root cause of the problem.

I am worried that a new brainbox may get bad also if the cause of the problem is not detected.

Has anyone had a similar experience? Pls help.

Your vehicle uses a fuel pump module. Just right underneath the vehicle at the rear close to the fuel tank(driver's side). If any form of funny electrical connection has even been done there. You would experience such. I could remember back then in 2014 a client came with same issue, inshort she brought in three ecu's funny enough all were burnt. Most mecho are used to looping directly both the +ve, -ve and ground and signal on the circuit. They believe its a way of by passing the module there by making the fuel pump push adequate amount of fuel grin
