My '99 Escort is not getting power from the battery. I have tested all the fuses and relays. I drove it at night hit the door locks and went inside. The next morning nothing. No dome lights the car would not unlock using the remote and no power what so ever. Please help as this is my only car.

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.
if its not charging while running at14.5 volts or so you have a charging problem mabey no power to the alternator if its charging at 14.5 or so and the batery load tests good and its going dead over night you have a draw from some component in the system.
is there fuel at the fuel rail it may be your fuel pump but that is just a maybe
i can help you with your electrical draw problem though; with the batter charged remove the negative cable at the battery, place a test light between the battery and the negative cable if there is an electical draw the test light should be lit, then go to your fuse box and start removing fuse by fuse until the test light goes off then you know what is drawing electricity most of the times its a stuck door switch that no longer switches the dome lights off or small lights under the dash and stuff like that good luck
Sounds like the auto shut down relay. Located somewhere in the front grille/bumper area. Relay triggers on impact to shut down all power in order to prevent fires etc. Great idea but can cause exactly the frustration you are having if you don't know it's there!!
