Question about 1998 Ford Escort
The gauges are not that critical, but with so many things out, the place to start is the fuse box. Don't just visually check fuses, but use a test light to be sure. After the fuse, the fan relies on a temperature sensor to turn on a relay, that then turns on the fan.
So it could be the relay as well as the sensor.
The sensor is usually on the radiator, and can be tested simply by shorting the 2 leads together. If the fan then goes on, it is the sensor that is bad.
But these all also have ground connections in common.
Make sure the engine ground strap is still firmly attached and not corroded. Clean and grease the battery terminals.
