If you have power then starter is good place to start checking. it sounds like a pain but , the safest wat to prevent damage is to remove starter and take to parts store,< one that will test parts > they can tell you if it's good or bad. If it is then you have it out and you are at place to get new one,< besides they ask for old one in exchange anyway>,also there is a starter relay located in service box in engine compartment,< in this box," fuse box next to battery"'is a starter relay remove it and take with you, if starter and relay are good then the ignition is the next step. Although you put the key in on column the ignition is actualy halfway down column< to get to it you have to remove cover from underside of column> the key actuates a rod to this engaging switch by pushing, < check that this is happening properly > it can fail causing nothing to starter,< if starter is good then unless something has been altered then most likely cause.

Need electrical wiring diagramignition 1995 ford escort wagon

I wasn't sure what part of the ignition you wanted? Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. The diagram is for ignition switch. The top wires are voltage to ignition switch. The bottom wires are voltage from ignition switch.

At the starter motor, two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other voltage circuit goes hot with the key in the crank position and is wired through the neutral switch. The ground for the starter motor is through engine block, grounds are important.
