Question about 1992 Ford Escort 4 Door
The engine cranks but doesn't start. The fuel pump does not cycle, no dash lights, no guages, and the fuses are good. radio comes on.
Ok check the DB wire at the coil make sure you have power there. Also I am looking at a 93 schematic(don't have a 92) it shows PCM relay next to the battery junction box or under hood fuse panel.Make sure you have power on the BK/W(this is the coil side of relay) and W/DG.(this is the switch side).If coil is energizing it should also have power on the W/R wire to feed the PCM.The BK/DG is the gound for the coil side.

Motors need two things to run fuel and spark, make sure you got both!! Theres a specialty tool to check for spark that you can buy at harbor freight or at a local auto parts store, You connect it to the spark plug wires one at a time and crank the motor a little light in the tool will tell you when current is flowing through. If your fuel pump isn't kicking in when you turn the key forward right before cranking the starter (you'll hear a buzzing sound comming from the tank area) then you're not getting any fuel, and you won't get the car going at all. Hopefully you haven't been driving around with less than a half tank of fuel at all times, because the fuel helps keep the pump cool and if you run low on fuel all the time then your pump is more likely to burn out.Hope this helps you!!
