Question about 1998 Ford Escort
That is a very bad way to test an internally regulated system. The alternator needs the battery to balance the load on the system. You probably just fried something by doing this because it would cause a voltage spike. Check the fuses in the under hood fuse box. The CPS could be unplugged and the fuel pump would still kick on when you first turn the key on so that isn't your issue. It is also possible you fired the computer.
