SOURCE: '99 zx2 wiring

I have a 2003 Ford ZX2, and I think I had the same problem before, I think it is a fuse somewhere. I believe that the breaklights and dash lights are connected. My dad is a mechanic and I will check with him.

SOURCE: my car radio stopped working

It takes a nano second to ruin today's electronics. I'd check the fuse for the radio before hitting tha panic button. You may be lucky and only blew the fuse If you are prone to leaving stuff on, I suggest at least once a month you should put your battery on a charger...The alternator can never completely charge a battery...it's designed to maintain the state of charge...not re-charge. This shortens battery life and overworks the alternator. Hope it's only a fuse and if it is a radio, be glad you didn't do more...I've seen everything including the computer get fried!!

SOURCE: 2002 ford escort zx2 camshaft sensor fit a 99 zx2?

Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.

SOURCE: where can i find the timing marks on 1998 ford escort zx2 ?

Hello pamgolmon: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. The 2-0 dual cam engine is a interference engine. This means if the engine jumps time at the timing belt. It will bend the valves. As for the timing marks on the camshafts. Their are no marks to be located. To set the timing marks on this engine requires special tools. This makes it expensive for not only the do it yourself mechanic but also the repair shops also. If the valves were bent you must pull the head for the repairs also.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the only answer to give. Please rate the quality of the answer as this way we know your answer was correct. Please just ask if you need further help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

I have a 99 Ford escort zx2 and the enigne quit while is was driv


This is a common problem for a crankshaft sensor failure. When it fails, the engine can not start since the ECM doesn't know the proper position of the crankshaft to give ignition according to TDC (top dead Center). Therefore it doesn't matter how strong your battery is, it won't fire. The fire is only happens when an ignition happens at the highest compression point when a piston is at top and this is reported by the crankshaft sensor. Have this checked out and replaced. Good luck.
