check the wire connections to earth , make sure the are clear of corrosion etc and tight , leave the ignition on for a few minutes then try to start , if still wont start try a jump start , even a new battery may be unservicable , if starts with a jump then take the battery back for it to be tested

94 ford escort lx. Only clicks at relay when trying to start. Replaced battery, ignition relay, neutral safety switch, ignition switch, starter tests good. Power going to starter but no power to exciter...

if you have battery power on the large terminal at the starter and the same on the smaller wire when someone Is turning the key to start and the starter has a good ground then the starter is bad drawing too much amperage causing the clicking sound.

1994 ford escort wagon, the key inserts into ignition unit good. When turned on or to start nothing happens. then when turned to the off position check engine and other panel light stay illuminated. ...

ALWAYS start with the simplest thing first, otherwise you will get "taken" at the Parts Stores.

Clean your battery terminals! This is the MAIN cause of not starting. Clean the clamps. Use the tool they sell, or sandpaper.Inspect the ciring for corrosion. Then make sure to re-connect the clamps tighly enough so there is a good connection. (you will not be able to move the cables).

If the vehicle doesn't start, have the battery tested. Make sure you have the correct battery for your vehicle. Different batteries have different sized terminals and different cranking power.

First, try to get a jump to get the car running. If getting a jump won't start the car there is something else wrong. If the car starts, it could be that your battery is too weak to start the car but has enough power to run the lights, etc. It takes a lot of battery power to turn the starter over.

I wouldn't doubt it is one of these two problems.

My girlfriend's 1994 Ford Escort LX is stuck in park and won't shift.

Do you mean you can not move the shift lever? If so when you push down the brake pedal do you hear the shfit lock out solenoid move (click)? If not then check power to the shift lock out solenoid (fuse). Hope this is helpful.
