If you tested before you fitted it must work when you fited in to the engine/
first check your battery connections clean,also if its loose tightened .
check starter wiring connections mainly earthing or neagtive to the body, if all wiring is ok check ignition swich.

Starter won't engage

if the starter just clicks then test for proper voltage on the big wire it should have 12.0 volts on it. no sound then have someone hold key in start position and tap the starter with a hammer if it cranks then replace starter

Have a 1997 ford escort 2.0l No sound when I engage the starter, it happened about 6 months ago. But started working again. Not sure if it's starter or solenoid, or both??

I would check all the cables and connections on the battery and the starter for corrosion or looseness. The solenoid is mounted on the starter. I would have the starter tested, most parts stores can test the starter and solenoid for you for free. I would also check to see if you are getting power from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid when the key is turned to the starting postion.

I have a 1998 ford escort zx2 and the back left

If you can still find a replacement left light lens of your 1998 ford escort zx2, you can replace it, of course. Just
take off the mounting screw of the lens, and take off the
defective lens. Then, you can mount the replacement.

01 Escort ZX2 had bad 02 sensor parked and next morning wont fire

is there fuel at the fuel rail it may be your fuel pump but that is just a maybe

i can help you with your electrical draw problem though; with the batter charged remove the negative cable at the battery, place a test light between the battery and the negative cable if there is an electical draw the test light should be lit, then go to your fuse box and start removing fuse by fuse until the test light goes off then you know what is drawing electricity most of the times its a stuck door switch that no longer switches the dome lights off or small lights under the dash and stuff like that good luck
