Question about 1998 Ford Escort

1 Answer

How do I check my computer

We had some "issues" when installing a battery in my wife's 98 Escort Wagon. Now the wipers won't turn off unless we pull the fuse and the blower motor doesn't work. Someone said we may have messed up the computer or the wiper controller may need to be replaced. Where can I find the computer? Thanks.

I have a 98 escort wagon that wont start replaced


I know this is going to sound stupid, but I've done it before, did you put he car in park? You might also want to try it in neutral also. If neither of these two tests work, you can try to jump across the solinoid on the fender well. Don't stand in front of the car, and make sure that the parking brake is set, just in case it starts and tries to run you down. If jumping across the two big posts cranks the motor, chances are either the solinoid or the electrical half of the ignition switch is bad.

98 Contour, starter ticks like dead battery and wipers cycle a couple of times when I turn the key to start. Wiper switch is in the off position, battery is fully charged. I would think possible starter...


If you turn the key and you hear a click and the motor is not moving your starter is probably bad. Everything can work on your car and the starter can be bad all by itself.
Check and see if your wiper is inthe correct position,sometimes we accidently move it without knowing.
