Problems with car not starting

I have a 2016 Escape ... first year was great ... this year, about 10 times, I have gotten into my car, and it doesn't start. Jumping it starts it immediately, however.

Seems to happen when I have had the hatch open (need access at dog events) and then opening the side doors in order to retrieve something else from the front of the car.

I did manage to start it by putting the key fob on the start button, but that only worked for me one time. I have replaced the batteries in both fobs thinking that may be the issue, but nope ... had to jump it again yesterday.

Has anyone run into this issue?

I would go get a load test done on your battery.... with the battery disconnected from your Escape. Autozone or O'Reilly can do one for you for free.
