Start with easy thing first are you sure both bulbs are ok ? get a test lamp
or make one!
get a good 12v bulb attach wires to side of bulb one to the terminal on base of
bulb,tape together now you can fined volts
hand brake on out of gear?

turn key on go inside car above the brake

theres a switch pull the plug off
put one end your test lamp to earth (the car body) and the other wire put to the terminals on the plug you pulled off if you get your test bulb to light its the switch thats faulty

replace switch if you have power at the switch and still no lights make a short bit of wire take back the insulation a bit so bair wire is showing make it in to a u shaped and put in to plug above the
brake that you pulled off you should now have volts(power) in the boot useing your new test lamp
to fned it make good all earthing points its somewhere between the switch and the boot?
if you fine when brake is pressed you get more than one light on its a bad earth
if you have no power at the switch ts prob fuse box fault tthry wll known for bad solder joins
good luck ps dont foget to replace plug

1999 ford escort SE rear brake line leak


You can replace line in full section or just a piece. Full section would be my suggestion, remove brake line from end to end that is bad..this doesent mean you have to remove the complete line clear up to the front of car,it should be in sections. After removing bad section take it to auto parts store and as the can give you the correct size without guessing. Most sections bought at auto stores are straight and can be bent useing brake line bender.They useually cost around 15 to 20 dollars.....after bending and replacing be sure to bleed brake system.....nedd more help fill free to contact me...good luck

Hi, I have a 1998 Ford Escort SE with 2.0


The large end should fit the rubber grommet, so it goes down. The small diameter end should connect to the vacuum line.

I just bought 1998 Ford Escort SE and can't find the oil dipstick. Exactly where is it, and is there perhaps a picture or schematic of one so I know where I may have to install one? Thanks much.


The engine oil dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine. Remove it and wipe the oil off the dipstick and then thread it back into the tube. Remove the dipstick and read the level. It should be between the MAX and MIN lines. Add oil if necessary. The coolant level is checked by visually inspecting the level in the reservoir while the engine is cold. It should be around the "Full Cold" line. Take a look at the coolant because oil mixed in with the antifreeze could signify a leaking head gasket. The brake master cylinder will be located on the driver's side of the firewall behind the strut tower. Pull the lid off and check the fluid level inside. To check the automatic transmission fluid level, first allow the engine to warm up to normal operating temperature, then check the fluid level on the dipstick. ------------

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How do you know it is non of the above.

If you are sure next thing to do is check for a kink in the fuel lines.
