You can find a Haynes or Chilton repair manual for this car at Autozone, or your favorite auto parts store, sometimes you can find them at your local library. Inside the book are wiring diagrams and test and removal and installation procedures. Sounds like you have a brake switch problem, it is located on the brake pedal under the dash. I am sure that with the book you can fix this at home. Hope this helps, let me know.

If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the problem is inside the speedometer. Probably a stripped gear.

Both turn signals on my 1998 Ford Escort zx2 don't flash.


The 98 Escort is actually a Mazda 323 with Ford trim. It uses a solid state flasher relay for both turn signals and hazard lights.
The relay is behind the speedometer. My guess is the relay has died.
You can look it up online or check with your local auto parts store to get a visual.

Brake light switch for 1998 ford escort station wagon


Common problem with these cars are that the rubber piece that "gaps" your brakepedal from the micro-switch keeps breaking (they usually have a replacement rubber piece connected on the brake pedal beside it). If your brake lights won't go off because of this, either change-out this rubber gap piece - or, you can just change the gap with a wrench, and not even use the rubber gap piece (this is what I ended up doing on a couple of my escorts).

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


Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

1998 ford escort wagon light in shifter console out.


If just the shifter light is out then it is not the fuse, the top plate of the shifter just pulls off, on some models there are 2 screws, the bulb is below that top plate.
