Question about 1994 Ford Escort
ALWAYS start with the simplest thing first, otherwise you will get "taken" at the Parts Stores.
Clean your battery terminals! This is the MAIN cause of not starting. Clean the clamps. Use the tool they sell, or sandpaper.Inspect the ciring for corrosion. Then make sure to re-connect the clamps tighly enough so there is a good connection. (you will not be able to move the cables).
If the vehicle doesn't start, have the battery tested. Make sure you have the correct battery for your vehicle. Different batteries have different sized terminals and different cranking power.
First, try to get a jump to get the car running. If getting a jump won't start the car there is something else wrong. If the car starts, it could be that your battery is too weak to start the car but has enough power to run the lights, etc. It takes a lot of battery power to turn the starter over.
I wouldn't doubt it is one of these two problems.
