SOURCE: wont start

is the earth cable giving a good engine and body contact.does your starter have two terminals and if so are they the right way around?is the battery any good?Is the engine able to be turned over by hand Make sure you have agood 12v supply to the starter solenoid when cranking the engine An engine test probe/light would be of a lot of use for you to do that test

SOURCE: 95 ford escort gt 1.8L wont turn over at all

battery low ,or a cell shorting the person who tested battery most likely done it with a voltmeter ,well this is no good it must be tested with a heavy duty drop tester that tests the output amperage which is the reserve power not the voltage as evan a duff battery can show 12v .fit a new 74amp hr battery and make sure earth connection from battery to engine is ok .grease the terminals and ensure battery clamp is re fitted.when its running and warmed up a bit disconnect battery and if engine stops then altenator is duff ,with engine running at 1500rpm it should continue running with every electrical thingy turned on. Yes i know a lot of mechanics will say you cant do this ,plug the dammed computer in ??well what did we do 40 yrs ago, wait for bill gates to invent windows i dont think so we evan stripped and repaired starter motors and re brushed dynamos and reset the voltage regulator by the above method .

this is a common problem because the ignition switc gets ;oose and in the process could have grounded under the steering column so just repair the wires to the starter motor and instal the new ign switch and you may end up replacing the starter motor also
