I can't remember exactly off the top of my head, but there's a fuel shut-off valve/switch in the escorts that could be the problem. Should be something about it in the manual, plus mine has a little sticker with information about it under the drivers side sunshield (sorry, would have more complete info but I don't have my car with me right now)

1997 FORD ESCORT WONT START HAVE DASHBOARD LIGHTS AND HEADLIGHTS NO SOUND EXCEPT ALARM FROM DOOR BEING OPENED


if my memory serves me correctly is the key the one with transponder in it and spare key is a red one. if so try the red key. another thought is when you unlock the door there is a alarm imobiliser shroud around the doorlock. remove door panel and check its operating ok.( dont hold me to this information but i have done these in the past and im sure thats what it is )

MY FORD ESCORT 1.6 FINESSE 1997 IMOBILISER FAULT


disconnect the battery for 1 minute and try again - ---quick fix possible with that---
if that makes no difference then I would like to know exactly what model of alarm and immobiliser the car has - what is the maker + model no/serialno of the keyfob for the alarm, I can get the info I need off that.
also you can check the fuse in the alarm if you know where the alarm is situated, it will have a fuse either on an inline fulseholder on as a spade fuse stuck into its casing somewhere - replace the fuse if blown and try again to start the car ------------ tell me the model no of your alarm and immobiliser if no joy after battery/fuses and I can read up on them and see if I can fix your problem...

No start


Check for fuel supply and spark availability to cylinders. Must have both that is a good starting point to determine fault.

Bad starting


what do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
