Replaced cigarette socket, and tail lights not working now on 1998 Ford Escort

Check for blown fuses first. pull them out to inspect them one at at time on the affected circuits as indicated on the sticker on the access panel .If none are blown under the dash, check the underhood fuses. and just check the condition of the wires bolted with the + battery cable on the starter solenoid. If none are blown underhood and all wiring looks good, you may have pulled a wire out of the harness, or it may have been a coincidental failure of light bulbs. The location where the wire may have pulled out could be on the fuse block under the dash, or even off the collumn connector which is on top of the tube, down near the firewall..

If anything was moved around in the trunk for other reasons, just check the wriring to the tail lights to make sure nothing got broken or disconnected, and check to make sure the black wires are attached to the body and that the contact area is clean with no nust.

Were can i get a free diagram of the wirering for the lights for a ford focus h/b 2003 so i can fit my towbar.. just the wirering in the boot

Go into the boot and access the tail light clusters under their covers in the boot rear corners. Take a lead (you can buy double adapter spade connectors) from (1) a tail light, (2) a brake light, (3) the right indicator, (4) the left indicator. (5) a solid earth wire. Try using different colour wires, making a note of each source and each corresponding colour. Tape them together and lead them to the trailer plug. There is a set international configuration for the trailer plug connections which is shown below.

Towbar electrics 7 cables,which goes where

Hi There.
here are the 7 cable locations and pin numbers.
Pin 1 Yellow L/H Direction Indicator
Pin 2 Blue Rear Fog Lamps
Pin 3 White Earth Return
Pin 4 Green R/H Direction Indicator
Pin 5 Brown R/H Tail & No, Plate Light
Pin 6 Red Stop Lamps
Pin 7 Black L/H Tail & No, Plate Lights

I found the easiest way to locate the correct wires in the loom is to turn on the lights required and use a circuit tester and splice into the main loom where you have enough wire to play with. Try not to cut the loom as it only causes more problems with bad connections and joins.
Good Luck

Ford escort van has faulty tail lights please advise

Bad erarth connection, very cvommon. Firstly check the main ground from the car battery to the car body, then check the black earth wire from the back light clusters to the inside of the boot floor. ensure they have good contacts and have not corroded etc.

Also the light cluster boards on these escort corrode, you may need to remove the back light cluster and clean it up ensure all the bulbs are the correct ones, a wrong bulb can also cause this fault as the earth connection is contacting another.

there is also an earth from the car battery to the gearbox and another 2 going to the starter and the altenator.

Hope this helps

Dash and Tail Lights not working

Those wires you messed with must have broken. You should be able to follow them to see which one needs repair.
