SOURCE: how to change thermostat in 2001 ford escort zx2

the thermostat is on the front right side just below the air tube (which you have to remove) in a black hard plastic case. It is a PAIN IN THE ARSE to get to, it will have 2 sensors sticking out of it, on on the bottom, one on the side.

SOURCE: 1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

SOURCE: instructions for replacing fuel pump in a 2001 ford Escort ZX2

Remove the rear seat, remove the 4 screws holding the metal cover, and you'll see the top of the fuel tank. The pump module is held in place by a locking ring that can be removed by use of a brass punch and hammer. If the ring is rusted, it'll get damaged during removal and will need replaced. You can get a new ring from Ford. Once the ring is removed, you can pull the pump module out. Remove the small screws from the top of the module and you can pull the top off of the basket to gain access to the fuel pump. Replace the pump and get new fuel pump strainers.

All lights work, but brake lights, new bulbs and fuses and brake light switch


Well, you've replaced everything between except the wire. You need to verify if voltages are present either with a voltmeter or a test light. verify power on both sides of the fuse, then make sure the brake switch has and passes power. If the turn signals flash the brake light, then test the turn signal switch as well.

My ford escort zx2 serfinteen belt broke car died, pushed car to parking spot, removed belt pices, now car dose not want to start, tested battery, battery good 12.45 , turn key no power to anything


Sounds like a wire was broken by the belt somehow.
You have some fuseable links and large fuses that power the components on the car.
I would look around for a loose wire close to the belt side of the engine, and check the fuses for power.

The brakes light won't go off. Ford Escort ZX2 2001


either replace brake light switch or check on the brake pedal arm for a 1/2 diameter blue rubber brake light switch bumper pad. The brake switch is normally closed which means when you push the on brake pedal the switch makes and power is applied through the switch to the lights. When the brake pedal is released the switch actuator strikes the rubber bumper and opens the switch contacts. If the bumper is missing the switch will not open to break the power circuit to the lights.
