Ok - I'm not a mechanic, but from my experience...

  1. When you tried to start the car, did the starter motor try to turn the engine or did it only make a click sound?
  2. If it tried to turn the engine on then first check if the battery is empty. Ask someone to help you jump start the car from his battery. If that works and your car starts up, the battery was probably empty. Just drive the car for 30 min or so to recharge the battery, without having the lights, air condition or any other electrical element on.
  3. If it did not work, your starter motor might be defective. (This is often the case if the starter motor only clicks without even trying to turn the engine over.) Then you have to replace the starter motor - either you do it yourself or get the car to a garage.
If this did not get you any further, let me know what happened when you tried to start your car. It also could be an electrical problem, but first check the battery.

Ford Escort (1993) (EFi engine) starts, then stalls.


The fuel pump in the petrol tank has a sock that acts as a coarse filter. This sock gets clogged with muck causing the car to starve of fuel intermittently and lead to the stalling as you've described. If you pour in some injector cleaner (contains detergents) or methylated spirits it may just fix the problem. Condensation (water) in the fuel creates a slimy goop that clogs filters. It worked for me and my 1992 Daihatsu Charade, and have heard that other cars with similar symptoms have been cured in the same way, usually after expensive repairs have already proved unsuccessful . A cheap solution really! Try this first. Good Luck.

If it is a really fast "whir" sound then it sounds like your starter has a dead spot.

Ford Escort Alarm - Annoying Problem!


it seems that the contact circuit in the driverside door is the problem, it's obviously not the alarm itself others wise the same thing would occure on the passengerside. you have to remove the door panel on the driverside and inspect the wires in that circuit for corrosion which would cause no current to pass between the by pass switch the arms or disarms the alarm. please rate this
