1st i would make sure the battery cables are clean. the lights will sometimes work and still not start because of corrosion on cable ends. have you tried to boost it also? i'm just trying to cover some issues with you. if you've tried to boost it and still no start, you may have a bad starter. make sure it's in park, shift the gears back and forth, just to be sure.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fix ya.com

1995 Ford Escort Wagon, turn on the key NOTHING happens. No click no dash lights no start.


Buy your battery there is a master fuse link that burns out to protect the systems. It is a smaller section of wire Lighter gauge that burns and separates. feel for it and look for bubbled wire coating.

this could be your problem and is a simple fix. Mike

My 1998 ford escort stop running no lights


start with the battery. needs at least 11 or 12 volts to start the car. By no lights, do you mean nothing, absolutely nothing comes on? no lights on dash when you turn key to on? If so, need to check battery connections. are they both tight and clean? Is battery fully charged? Before you can diagnose the car you musthave a good battery that is fully charged. Then you can try and start it. If it still wont start or crank over you may have a main fuse out that would be under hood near battery.

When i turn the key to start get nothing just lights on the dash had bat and alternator check out ok


This is a VERY common problem with The Escort.
Have your starter motor solenoid checked. You will need to remove the motor to do this.
Good luck with it

I have a vw golf gti. P reg 1996. recently it has


Hi Frank
If as you say....Nothing is happening at all when you turn the key, you appear to have one of two problems. A faulty starter motor--or--- A faulty ignition switch. If you can tap the starter motor while another person keeps the key turned to the start position, and the engine now starts you now know it is a starter problem. When doing this PLEASE MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF GEAR.
If it should start up, or even engage the starter motor while IN GEAR, serious injuries could happen, and I do not mean to your car.
Good luck

I have a escort 1 8 gti and abs lights on dash are on


Could have a bad wheel sensor. You need to have the codes pulled if there are any. Sensors are usually the problem.
