It could be the alternator. There are also a host of other things that could be the cause(s). Check the charging system to determine whether the alternator is possibly bad. A quick check is to measure battery voltage with ignition off, then again with engine running. Voltage should increase 1 - 2 volts with engine running. If voltage does not increases, then you certainly have a charging system problem.

My ford escort zx2 serfinteen belt broke car died, pushed car to parking spot, removed belt pices, now car dose not want to start, tested battery, battery good 12.45 , turn key no power to anything


Sounds like a wire was broken by the belt somehow.
You have some fuseable links and large fuses that power the components on the car.
I would look around for a loose wire close to the belt side of the engine, and check the fuses for power.

98 ford escort making grinding noise from engine when trying to start it,but will not start.


May be a bad starter??
May be a bad flywheel??
May be a thrown connecting rod???
There are way too many things involved here to test, if you are a novice I advise you seek the knopwledge of a professional in the end it may save you $$$$ on buying electrical parts that donot solve the problem and once electical components are purchased you cannot return them for money back.
