Re: No power at all
1st make sure your battery cables are clean .. sometimes the battery will check ok with a meter but if you turn something on in the car it will not let juice go through cables if they are dirty at battery .. Next check to make sure battery cable on starter is tight .thanks Jerry holler if you need more

Do the park lamps work ? license plate lights get power from same fuse ! Check ground wire ! use a volt meter an do voltage drop test ! Voltage Drop Testing The fuse for the license plate lights is in the under hood fuse box -engine compartment ! fuse #12 RT PRK LAMP 10Amp .
Ok let's start go dollar store buy a cheap test light go to under the fuse box under hood driver side get the end of test light get good ground touch both end of all the fuses the test light should turn on if not u don't have a good ground on the test light touch both top ends of fuse the test light should light if not one fuse is burn ck them all if ok on the driver side next to the foot brake is ant hoe fuse box do the same if all good get flash light look at the harness under seat on the red wire ck for 12 volts the test light should come on if not ck grounds does the passenger side work
Check for a blown fuse in the power circuit to the radio.
If your radio is an aftermarket one, it may have been improperly installed and powered from the cigarette lighter circuit. If so, check the fuse for the cigarette lighter circuit.
It may be that a "fusible link" was blown open when you attached a defective cell phone charger (what you call a "memory charger?) If so, you will have to get professional help in finding the location of the fusible link, often buried within the car's wiring harness.
2005 Suburban Z71 4WD I had similar situation. No 12 volt positive to 7 trailer. Under my hood at the fuse panel, the red 12v + wire was connected to Stud # 1 which is on the left side of fuse box. There is a square fuse right next to this stud. I put a 40 amp fuse in it. I use this power to charge a battery in a trailer as I am hauling.
When you say "all fuses good" Does that mean the fuse panel on the passenger side end of dash...
and both power distribution boxes under the hood? They are attached to the fenders and you will have to remove the metal straps running over the covers to open them. Check power wire going to each box for tightness and 12 volts. If all the fuse's, relay's, and circuit breakers are good, you may have an issue with the "Body Control Module". You will find it under passenger side dash, behind the glove box. Might even be an issue with the ignition switch.
Check for 12 volts power at the fuel pump harness. If no power is going to the pump, check the fuel pump relay. Also, check the fuel pump inertia switch. Ford usually has it on either inside left or right rear trunk fenders.
I don't know about the 98 Escort, a fuse on a starter circuit is very unusual.
You should check the voltage at the battery - then at the starter solenoid, battery side. If you have 12 volts at the battery, 12 volts at the battery side of the solenoid, great. Now, have a partner turn the key to start position and test the starter side of the solenoid. If you haved 12 volts with the key on start position, I would be thinking starter. If you don't have 12 volts on the battery side with the key in start position, I'd be thinking solenoid.
You could also jump the solenoid with a jumper cable to check the starter operation.
Use a volt meter if you have one - a 12 volt test light if you don't have a meter.
it will be labled cigarette lighter it should be red in color and be a 10 amp fuse. there is a fuse block on the drivers sider under the dash near the emergency brake / hood release. please rate this...thanks
the fuse box inside the cabin on the passenger side near the floor on the left. In there are many keyed circuits, weather the is one that can handle that amperage I dont know. I would suggest for safety sake use a relay that can handle that current draw and wire the coil of the relay to any keyed circuit. You can then wire the contractor of the relay directly to the battery and draw as much current as you want. Remember to use fuses on both the coil side and the contractor side of the relay and if you are running a wire to the battery be sure to put a fuse there AT THE BATTERY as well.
