Question about 1995 Ford Escort

1 Answer

1995 escort lx, electrical problems.

I have a 1995 escort lx, 4cylinder 1.9L. I have had the battery and alternator checked. The battery, a dura start, is producing more cold cranking amps than what the label says it should. After I park it for the night, and come out in the morning, the battery, a dura start, is completely dead. The battery light stays on above 1000 rpms when the car is warmed above the C on the temp guage. It also stays on when its above 1500 rpms when the car is freshly turned on. Also, the orange driver shaped light blinks twice when i shift into passing gear. Some accasories, like rear defrost, turns the light off ONLY when not in park. Im a novice car guy, so I have no idea. Thanks for you're time.

Battery wont stay charged

The voltage regulator is, I believe, built in to the alternator on your escort-some cars have them in a different location. So, although the alternator has checked out as working, was the voltage regulator function checked? Another possibility would be loose or corroded connections, most commonly at the battery, but also at any wires that connect to the alternator. I just had a problem w/ my Ford pickup-good battery and alternator, then I found a plug in wire on the alternator has a gasket to seal out grime and dirt, it was torn and the connection was badly corroded at all the contacts. Cleaned up the connection, and everything is fine. Hopefully it's as cheap and easy to fix as mine was. Let me know how u make out. Good luck.
