Question about Ford Escort
Since its presently working, don't mess with it yet. You can put a toggle switch in between so you can turn it on and off (you can even mount it under the dash). Get a good wiring diagram and use it to make sense of what you have.(Chilton makes a good diagram book which can sometimes be found in the library) I would not rely on Haynes for this,,, I've seen their diagrams and even with 30yrs in the business, I can't make heads or tails out of their stuff over 90% of the time!!)
Likely, there was a problem in the system to start with and the previous owner opted to just hot wire it rather than repair it. Therefore your problem is not only locating and re-connecting stuff, but figuring out what the other guy either didn't want to fix or couldn't figure out himself! Take your time with this and you can figure it out!!! Though this may not qualify as a "solution" it will help get you pointed in the right direction!
