Question about 1997 Ford Escort

1 Answer

I have a 1997 ford escort drawing power from the battey.

We have found that the problem may be the bnt 40 amp. But we do not have the owners manual to see the diagram that shows what this 40amp fuse runs. Do you have one? Or do you know where I can find the diagram?

Thanks

BATTERY IS GOOD SO IS THE STARTER AND THE ALTENATOR WHY DO I KEEP HAVING TO HAVE JUMP STARTS? 1997 FORD ESCORT


How long does it take for the battery to go dead, overnight, couple of days?

Have you checked the electrical system for draws? You'll need a multi meter capable of reading amperage. Disconnect the positive cable and hook the meter up in series with the battery and the positive cable. You want to make sure the key is out of the ignition, all the doors are closed and all the dome lights etc are turned off before doing this. If you get a reading of more than .050 amps than you have a draw. You may have to wait for 20 minutes or so for everything to power down to get an accurate reading.

If you have a draw of more than .050 amps than you can start pulling fuses one at a time until the draw goes away and then focus on the things that fuse supplies power to. Make sure you put the fuse back that you pulled out before pulling the next.

If there are no draws and the battery goes dead overnight disconnect the battery, let it sit overnight and then see if the battery will start the vehicle in the morning. Every once in a while you will run into a battery that has an internal draw and will run itself down all by itself.

I have a Ford escort 97 1,6 V16 what is the best oli for it ?


The best oil is usually the one recomended by the vehicle manufacturer, details of which will be found in your owners handbook. Always use a top branded oil such as Mobil - Depending on your country of use, either a 10w40 or if you use the vehicle in a hot climate, 5w30 will be better.

Battery indecator light on on dash


Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.
