High voltage cable inspection: The technician will inspect the exterior of the cable jackets and connectors on your 2005 Ford Escape and test to confirm that high voltage isn't making its way to the chassis. They'll let you know if the cable needs replacement.

Isolation test: During this test, the technician will use a special tool to check for any high voltage components that are "leaking" electric energy to the chassis.

Remove and replace hybrid electric battery: Is your Ford Escape's high voltage battery a goner? Let us install a new one.
