Question about 1998 Ford Escort
There is a good chance that the wire harness to your heater blower fan resistor is damaged from the heat generated from the current flow. Inspect the wire harness at the clip, which is the most common area of where the issues needs to be addressed.
The plastic clips melt and then covers the electrical terminals causing poor connection. The lost of connection will give you the issues you have described and the other area would be the switch is self. A spry of electrical contact cleaner will fix a dirty switch.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck
