What relay do ihave to earth to get the engine to fire up.i have earthed the starter relay and the fuel pump relay but cant get a spark .have a ford dealer disk but not a lot of information their as only block diagram and any further information i need to use a dealer id to get into it.original fault ,battery went flat with car left for 3 mths without the battery being disconnected.i have removed the stupid boy racer alarm that was fitted but still cant get the thing to start as no spark ,power into coil pack all three wires but this ford disk just shows a block diagram with a numbers but the numbers will not show the location or the wiring diagram of whats inside the ECU or PCM .so if anyone knows where to run a earth wire to make it start ??pretty please ,and as for a haynes manual ?? failing which when i get time i will remove the fuse /relay board and follow the wiring and find the correct relay it will not beat me buts its the time factor so if anyone knows please post or e mail me firstname.lastname@example.org.. pretty please
Changed to firefox lost that dammed 2009 antivirus stuff now.kept cutting me out on every stroke of keyboard.now where was i ??yes this fault was caused by car being left with battery connected.get it a lot here as its a holiday area and cars get left whilst owners in uk.battery slowly died and alarm cut in ,,now as we all know and that is the dealers like the golden egg and these people get taken big time.this escort is no exemption the dealer wants about 200€ to restart vehicle plus breakdown truck and their are a lot of these cars about now diesel is no problem but a petrol one i dont know about i have earthed the starter solonoid and fuel pump solenoid but what do i have to earth for the spark.also if anyone reads this what about the latest renaults with that stupid card thing,is it possible to by-pass the alarm system on these?? local renault garage loves the english with these pieces of junk .just look at the dammed things and immobiliser cuts in.lowest bill here was 220€ but more often than not its on average of 500+ € by the time the computer will not start the car because of fault number ???? ,and new plastic air connector fitted 220€ + labour + + + +this that and another.keep away from renaults dammed froggy rubbish give these cars the agincourt sign

Sounds like your crank position sensor is dead, your wires to the coil will have power but nothing will come out of the coil. The flywheel has a toothed plate fastened to it with one tooth missing, when the missing tooth passes by the crank position sensor , (CPS), it sends a signal to the computer located under your radio in the car and lets the coil know when to fire, if the CPS is bad you will still have power to every single wire in the car, just no fire. Also if it was wired with an alarm system it has an interupter wired into your wiring harness either under the dash or in the engine compartment, it should be pretty easy to spot because it with have cheap connectors and a crappy tape job where it was patched in.
