Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
Look for the starter solenoid, usuall on the passenger fender. use a thick gauge wire to cross over from the starter wire (blue/red) to the battery wire. If it cranks fine then the problem is with the solenoid. It will need to be replaced. Below is a picture. Your should be similar.

One other thing I've been seeing more in recent years. Check your battery terminals. They should be silver on the inside. If they are the color of pencil lead, scrape them clean. This is lead oxide and it doesn't conduct electricity. And by the way, I don't think a 2001 Escort has a solenoid on the fender any more.
