There is a flasher unit that controls both the normal indicators and hazard flashers, on a 98 ford escort it is fixed to the base of the indicator stalk switch, if you remove the shroud that covers the switches around the top of the steering column you can see the flasher unit, usually it is black and just plugs in to the bottom of the hazard and indicator switch. The unit should have an ignition supply to it as well as a perm ant supply when the hazard switch is pushed down. Sometimes these switches get sticky contacts so if you bang the switch on and off a few times it can sometimes make the contacts work and then then all the indicators start working again.
Try the "WD40" trick on the Hazard Switch. Use a can with the red straw nozzle and just shoot a little into the area around your hazard switch, then move it up and down, on/off--just generally wiggle it a little bit. On many vehicles (especially FORDS, but others as well) this will allow the switch to fully disengage and return brake lights and turn signals to functionality.
there is a bad connection in your wireing take off the stearing consol and the switch is under there as its an old car now you may need a new switch try swilling it with switch cleaner and look at the wireing it wont take much of a brake in this to stop it working
