Why won't my My 98 or 99 (sic)Ford Escort chime to indicate I left my lights on?

The warning chime sounds if the parking lamps (13200) or the headlamps (13008) are left on after the key has been removed from the ignition switch lock cylinder and either front door (20124) is opened. There is a chime module that controls this .
The safety belt warning chime (10D840) (also called the central processing unit or CPU) is an audible warning system and timing circuit. The system components include:

  • Timing circuit safety belt switch.
  • Dome lamp switches.
  • Safety belt warning indicator switch which is an integral part of the front safety belt buckle end (61203).
  • Ignition switch (11572).
  • Headlamp switch.
The warning chime sounds and the safety belt warning indicator illuminates when the ignition switch is placed in the ON position and the LH front safety belt is not buckled.
Key In Ignition Warning
The warning sounds if the key is left in the ignition switch lock cylinder when either door is opened and the ignition switch is in the LOCK or OFF position.
Don't any of chimes work ?
  • The Headlamp on Reminder Chime Is Inoperative/Does Not Operate Properly
  • Circuits.
  • Fuse junction panel.
  • Warning chime module.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test D .
Let me know ,mite work this out !
Don't

SOURCE: 1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 ford escort zx2 and the back left

If you can still find a replacement left light lens of your 1998 ford escort zx2, you can replace it, of course. Just
take off the mounting screw of the lens, and take off the
defective lens. Then, you can mount the replacement.

Went to start my 99 ford escort and lights came on and chimes as normal went to turn key and heard a little pop sound. Then no lights no start nothing. Please help I'm stranded


if it did this when the starter motor was engaged when this happened then it would be that that is a fault and it has blown the main fuse in the engine bay fuse box. could also of damaged the ignition relay in main fuse box.

My check engine light stays on all the time and my interior lights and lighter don't work


It sounds like you have several different things going on.

For the interrior lights, are you sure that you don't have the interrior light switch on the map lamp assembly turned to the OFF position?

For the cigarette lighter I would unplug whatever it is that has been plugged into the cigarette lighter recently and check the 20 Amp fuse in the Central Junction Box located under the left side of the dash. It is marked "CIGAR"

For the check engine light, you will just have to scan your Powertrain Control Module for fault codes to find out the nature of the problem. Then you must diagnose the system that is failing before any repairs can be made.

I want to disable the warning chime on 95 escort wagon lx


The waring chime is located above the fuse box under the dash, open door with the keys in the ignition, let it chime and follow the sound, it will make it easier to find, then unplug it. Hope this helps.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

ALARM SECURITY SYSTEM FUSE BOX FOR FORD ESCORT


Try the batteries in the keyless remote.Then if those are good on the driver side left kick panel. Is the fuse block. on top to the left there is a row of six fuses. two rows of three there should be a cover for it and on the cover there is a indicator on it for the alrm systems. try fuse first. the if thats not it then in the trunk on the right hand side behind the carpet is a box that is held by two #10 screws. take it off and on the box it has two wiring harneses and a antenna looking cable. try the box afterwords though because they are expensive. form ford they are about 400$ . try salvage yards if still no luck i have 3 systems with remotes.
