    I have a Ford Escord Mexico 1.6 N (1995) Reg.

    My rear lights, registration plate light and Instruments Panel light don't work. Occassionally they do work for a little while and then they disappear again by switching the ligts on and off quickly a few times. Any idea why or any suggestion to what I need to do please?

    Also, what 's the best engine oil to use for topping up?

    Thank you!

    I have exactly the same problem as nokiaguy - I have to switch the light on and off lots of times before the dashboard and rear lights come on.

    Also, I can't make much sense from the posted solution.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Funny story: I had a similar problem until one day, on the way to work, the fuse blew and the dash just wouldn't light up at all. That's when I found out that the dash light fuse is the same fuse that protects the tail lights. It was too dark to drive without tail lights so I replaced the 15 amp fuse with a 20. It blew too. In desperation, I used a 25 amp fuse (stupid!). Back on the road and five minutes later, I smelled burning electrical wires. By the time I found a safe place to pull over the damage was done... but at least it made it easier for me to notice the problem. I waited for dawn.

In the light, I started tracing the problem. This time I started at the back instead of under the dash. I opened the hatch (it's a wagon) and saw it right away. The wire bundle that feeds the rear door had become quite chewed up from opening and closing for 13 years. I had to cut and splice at least a dozen wires and re-insulate them. Everything was fine after that, even my centre brake light(that hadn't been working for YEARS). I only wish I had checked this BEFORE I threw in that 25 amp fuse. Since everything was shorting out in the tailgate, it really heated up some wires under the dash too. Now my power locks don't work. And I blew all but one of the lights in my dash. Now I HAVE to take the dash out to replace those lights. Argh.

So. Check the fuse (I think it's labeled TAIL LIGHT). But REALLY check that wire cluster to the rear door.

2002 Ford Escort gear shift linkage is stuck in park

It's the fuse that is blown which prevent's you from moving the gear from Park to anything else. The fuse box, on a 1995 Escort is on the drivers' side by the break pedal, I'm not sure where your fuse box is. Check the guide to see which fuse is the one for "Stop" and replace it, problem is I'm not sure what causes this and it's driving me crazy because it keeps on doing it. I've gone through so many fuses, there has to be a short somewhere...but I have no idea where.

Ineed a timing diagram for 1995 1.9 ford escort

both the cam gear and the crank gear timing marks should point straight up. if you are replacing your timing belt you may also want to replace your timing belt tensioner and water pump. I have owned several escorts and have learned the hard way that it is a good idea to replace all of these at the same time.
