What could be causing my 97 ford escort to loose power i have already replaced the battery and altinater?

there must be a drain somewhere , check that all interior lights are off when ignition is off , usual one's forgotton are in the trunk, map/glove box even under hood if fitted , if non found disconnect the neg battery terminal and place a test light on the terminal and the other end on the earth lead , if it lights up then you def have a drain somewhere , i would suggest that to find the problem component that you remove a fuse at a time until the light goes off , you will then know what circuit the problem is on and can investigate that circuit

I have a 97 ford escort and the drivers side door is not the same door. So the locks are different

You would have to get a locksmith to cut a key from scratch by making an impression of the lock.

Replaced engine & battery, security system locked us out

sounds like the immobiliser, like you did,nt connect the immobiliser block,a cable with 3 wires,look carefully you may not have noticed & plugged it in. all the leads connected to the battery may not be correct. car thinks it,s being stolen.with fords you need to use the original key(red dot on it)to activate security settings,good luck leave key out of ignition,that may work
