If it is a really fast "whir" sound then it sounds like your starter has a dead spot.

Ignition problem on ford escort.


The battery might seem ok but I would take it to a place like Sears or a large auto parts store.Call them first to be sure they have a load tester.. Tell them the battery needs to be "load tested".When you turn the key to start it takes alot more amp power to turn the engine over.
I hope this helps you.

1987 ford escort Gt hatchback 1.9 ltr engine doesn't start all the time some times it just clicks maybe solanoid. I push start it and it starts being a standard. When it turns over it turns over great....


Starter is beginning to fail. It has a dead spot or two and my luck of the draw you are occasionally ending up on the dead spot.

Plan to eventually replace the starter.

Hope that helps.

Car won't start:1/18/09


Ok - I'm not a mechanic, but from my experience...
  1. When you tried to start the car, did the starter motor try to turn the engine or did it only make a click sound?
  2. If it tried to turn the engine on then first check if the battery is empty. Ask someone to help you jump start the car from his battery. If that works and your car starts up, the battery was probably empty. Just drive the car for 30 min or so to recharge the battery, without having the lights, air condition or any other electrical element on.
  3. If it did not work, your starter motor might be defective. (This is often the case if the starter motor only clicks without even trying to turn the engine over.) Then you have to replace the starter motor - either you do it yourself or get the car to a garage.
If this did not get you any further, let me know what happened when you tried to start your car. It also could be an electrical problem, but first check the battery.

Ford Escort Alarm - Annoying Problem!


it seems that the contact circuit in the driverside door is the problem, it's obviously not the alarm itself others wise the same thing would occure on the passengerside. you have to remove the door panel on the driverside and inspect the wires in that circuit for corrosion which would cause no current to pass between the by pass switch the arms or disarms the alarm. please rate this
