2007 Ford Escape

If i leave my ford escape for a few days it will not start. The engine will crank but will not start. If i put my battery charger on it for a few minutes, it will start right up. It seems to crank fast enough after it sits for a few days, but will not start. The only thing i can think of is the voltage is a little low. Any help would be appreciated.

It would seem to me if charging it allows it to start then low battery voltage is the problem. Does this car get driven much between parking it for a few days?

Sounds like low voltage to me, recharge and test the battery, most likely will have to replace the battery, after you replace it test the car for a draw on the battery.

The first thing to look for is do-it-yourself add on wiring. Usually for stereo or something like that.

People will hook these things up so they use electricity all the time, then this quickly drains the battery.
