Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
I removed the stock tape player from my 2001 ford escort and in the process disconnected the cable from the temperature control know. I have tried several times to reconnect it but i can not get the cable out of the dash far enough to hook it up. I there a better way to reconnect this?
On the bottom left driver side unplug the black circular module that controls the temperature disable your stereo to hook back up to the teeth on the knob then feed the wire through back to where the module plugs in then put the stereo in the go under your steering wheel to the black module and plug it in now you have temperature back.

Sounds as if the car is not getting warm enough, which could mean that your thermostat is stuck in the open position. Try changing it. That should take care of the problem. Depending on which brand you get, the thermostat will most likely cost you between $8.00-$16.00.
Also, check the coolant level. Make sure its at a proper level. The Temperature Sensor could be bad as well.

cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool

Just an idea .. In the past I have removed hungry decks from my cars. A lot easier to work on / dismantle than in dash. gently remove the casing and you should find the tape deck a separate component within the whole unit.Hook up via alligater clips to battery to power up and alligater clips to a speaker lead to hear. saves a lot of stress. Usually done for chewwed up and swallowed tape. results are good, surprisingly.

go to the parts store and but the radio removal tools- you dont have to take any part of the dash apart... the radio pulls right out with the special tool
