Question about 1995 Ford Escort
My son has a 1995 Ford Escort W/1.9 engine. When he came home from school he said that his Windshield wipers, heater blower fan & power windows just stopped working. I have checked all the fusses, pulled down the cluster of relays from under the dash on the driver’s side. I was able to bench test 3 of the relays and they seemed to work. I also went out to the back 40 and pulled the relays out of another Escort that did work when I parked the car. What am I missing? Is their some place that all three of these are linked? Does anyone have a complete (or incomplete wiring diagram for this car? Let me thank you in advance for your help with this problem.
Replaced the ignition switch, the circuit breaker in the ignition switch wears out, the ignition switch powers the fuse box. You can get a new ignition switch from napa for $128.00 do not get it from the dealer, they sell it as a kit with door locks as well so that the key matches, and then you are lookin at $249.00. Unhook the steering column and drop it so you can drill out the ignition switch assembly, that is a short cut so you do not have to pull the entire steering wheel off. Consolo Automotive

Okay. It is your ignition switch. The one inside the steering wheel. It's really difficult to reach, and you have to dig pretty deep inside the wheel. [You're supposed to take it off, but we didn't.] Anyways, the ignition switch is bad. If you replace it (or get it replaced by someone else) the problem will be solved. My '95 Escort was doing the same thing. Me and my dad switched the ignition switch, and now everything works perfectly.
