We have a t reg escort estate the interior light instrument panel light side lights and back lights have all failed


First check fuses. I don't have the info on which fuse to check. Ford only puts the info in the manual, not the fuse panels. If the fuses are good, then I would go after the headlight switch. It will one or the other.

Where is the automatic transmission dipstick located on a 89 ford escort and why does the gear shift act in its starting, whether or not? ( moving it)


Dip stick comes out of dip stick tube coming from transmission (side of trans) Look real hard on the side of the transmission behind the engine you will see it.

The second issue sounds like a neutral safety switch.

Old m reg escort 16v interior red light on clock stays on - ??


sounds like the clock is wired to the +12v from the stereo instead of ILLUM from the ignition, this light should only come on with the headlights... Connect the wire from the clock bulb to ILLUM on the stereo wiring - I cant find an escort manual so youll have to find which wire is clock power and which one is clock lighting, nedless to say you leave the clock power and ground as they are - just cut the lighting wire and attatch it to the ILLUM for the stereo with a crimp or block connector. ...
tape up everything you leave disconnected.
now the light will only come on with dipped or beam lights, not just all the time on its own.

I'v lost all side lights (including dashboard),but still have headlights/fog/Brake/ ect... checked the fuses all OK, Is there a relay aswl a the fuse? If so, is it in the fusebox, of inline somewhere?...


fuse boxes tent to go faulty on escorts. try manually providing a 12v feed to the dip beam fuse in the fuse box. if the fuse box is faulty then it shuold light up the headlights. columb stalks are also very common on the ford also.

Head lights wont turn off


if you are saying the front side lights are going off but the headlights remain on ? then could you try this ? put the h/lights on main beam mode then whilst on main beam turn off lights if h/lights go off now ? then with lights still off put onto dipped beam with the switch/stick if h/light come on it is most probably the dipped beam headlights relay that has gone faulty as the h/lights have 2x relays 1for dip +1 for main beam if the above does not make any difference ? it may well be the switch assy hope this helps
