The Ford Escape uses an OBD II diagnostic port located under the left side of the dash near the steering column. Pulling trouble codes requires the use of an OBD II capable code reader or scan tool, with the scan tool being preferable because it gives more diagnostic information than a code reader does. Pulling codes is straightforward and well within the capabilities of the average home mechanic.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

OBD II capable code reader or scan tool

Instructions

1 Locate the diagnostic connector under the dash, to the right of the steering column and plug the code reader or scan tool connector into it. The ignition key should be off when doing this to avoid damage to the scan tool.

2 Turn the key on. Then turn the scan tool on. Many scan tools will automatically link to the system, but if yours doesn't, follow the menu prompts on the screen to link to the system. Refer to the instruction manual that comes with your specific tool for more information.

3 Scroll down to the menu item marked "Read Codes" or "Current DTC", and select "enter". The scan tool or code reader will display the codes, and in some cases a description of the code and possible causes.

4 To clear the codes, back out of the "read codes function" and select "Clear Code"s. A prompt will ask you if you are sure you want to do this, and if you are, then select "yes". This is the only way to totally clear codes. Disconnecting the battery will remove them from the current list, but leave them stored as a memory code.
