2009 Ford Escape - It wasn't the ignition switch

sometimes it starts and all panal lights go ondrives fine then i park it and it wont start for about 3 days statts up then dose the same .replaced igniton swich .dose same thing.

When it won’t start get it towed to a good mechanic.

A mechanic should have the correct (dose ) for this problem.

The next time it doesn’t start, shift the transmission into neutral and then see if it starts.

If it starts, there’s a problem with the park/neutral safety switch.

Have you cleaned and tightened the battery connections and tested the battery? Are the battery cables in good shape?

By “won’t start” do you mean you don’t hear that rrr rrr rrr sound? Or do you hear that sound ok, but it won’t catch and run? fyi: Replacing the ignition switch for either of these cases rarely works.
