Question about 1995 Ford Escort

1 Answer

1995 (N) Ford Escort Mexico 1.6

Both my rear lights, Registration Plate light, Fog Light and Instruments Panel Light don't work unless I click the lights on and off quickly and then they stop working again after a short while. Any idea what the reason might be and what I need to do please?
Also, what is the best engine oil (grade) to use for topping up?
Thanking you in advance for your help!

10w/50 or 15w/60 for oil and replace light switch might be loose inside you could try pulling it apart and bending the metal slides back down just take care to mark the many pieces so you can put it back together

Rear fog lights not working on 2002 a6


First thing to check is the bulbs. The rear fog lights are the 2 bright red lights (a little brighter than the brake lights) next to the licence plate on the back of the car. They are turned on by pulling the light switch out 1 click when the headlights are on.

I found the easiest way to locate the correct wires in the loom is to turn on the lights required and use a circuit tester and splice into the main loom where you have enough wire to play with. Try not to cut the loom as it only causes more problems with bad connections and joins.
Good Luck

My FOrd Escort 1995 failed its MOT because the rear fog light isn't working, the switch, light and fuse has been checked and seem fine, what else could it be?


havent heard of that for a long while -.MOT anyway have you checked for a feed to the switch first as this could be the problem no feed for whatever reason ,if a feed to the switch and remember the dipped headlights have to be on for a feed to be present then if you have a feed its a fault dont the line somewhere but on a uk vehicle this old it could be the light itself has a corroded earth ,?? no dont think so as the fog light is in the back light cluster so the other lights wouldnt work ,check for feed to the switch first ,dipped headlights and ignition on ,then post what you find

Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.

Fog lights


hi from uk the fog lghts? i assume front fog lamps ? the head lights have to be on dipped beam then the fogs will also work but in uk this is so as to prevent fogs only being used (blinding oncoming traffic ) if weather conditions req fogs to be used for poor visibility ? then the side/tail and h/lights must also be on like wise the rear fog light/s operate the same way hope this helps and makes perfect sense ?? all above is assuming bulbs have been checked and fuse/relay and power to each lamp ?
