On Board Test...

Hi Fellas,

This is my first post so forgive the blandness of my page. I have an 07 Ford Escape XLT V6 4X4. I recently found that I could start a "test" by pressing and holding the ODO Reset button and turning my ignition switch on. Does anyone know where I can get a list of what the different readings represent? I can only decipher a few of them.

Hi there and welcome to the forum :)

I found this on another website not too long back. Hope it helps.

Here's How:

1) Insert Key (do not turn it)
2) Press and hold the Trip-Meter Reset Button
3) While holding the reset button, start your car and continue holding the button.
4) Within 10 seconds, the display should change to "test" (written in a silly LCD font) and the needles will go nuts. No biggie. Release the Button.
5) Pressing the button will now cycle through some 15 different modes.

The modes you can go through in the Escape are:

1. Gauge Sweep
2. Fill in All LCD
3. Indicator Bulbs
4. ROM level
5. NVM level
6. DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes)
7. Road Speed MPH
8. Road Speed KPH
9. Engine Speed RPM
10. Fuel Volume
11. Engine Coolant Temp
12. Battery Voltage
13. ABS fail
14. Electronic Brake Distribution Failure
15. Illumination
16. Crank Sense
