Ford Escape: Starting System - 1.5L EcoBoost (132kW/180PS) – I3 (Y1) / Description and Operation - Starting System - Overview

Starting System

The starting system controls the cranking of the engine. When the PCM receives inputs from the ignition switch, transmission (with automatic transmission) or clutch pedal position switch (with manual transmission), run/start relay and the BCM it then energizes the BJB starter relay. When the starter relay is energized it applies power to the starter motor which cranks the engine.


The Auto-Start-Stop system helps reduce fuel consumption by automatically shutting off the vehicle’s engine while the vehicle is at a complete stop and restarting the engine when the clutch pedal is pressed (with manual transmission) or when the brake pedal is released (with automatic transmissions). The Auto-Start-Stop system is automatically enabled whenever the ignition is turned on. The vehicle may restart automatically in order to maintain interior comfort or to recharge the battery.

Refer to the Owner's Literature for additional information.
