Question about Ford Escort
Use a volt meter, connect to the battery before starting the car, voltage should be around 11.5v to 12.5v, then start the car, voltage should be 13.5v to 14.5v, then turn on all electronic devices wipers,lights, hazzards etc. voltage should be the same 13.5v to 14.5v, if it is then your altenator works, if not you should replace it. Let me know if this helps.

Take the car to an autoparts store and most will test the alternator for no charge. Hope this helped.
