My radio, cigarette lighter and power mirrors arent working i have checked the obvious fuses what else should i check? Wire harness maybe a wire shorting where should i start looking

Definitely not a wire "shorting," but possiblu an open (broken) wire; more likely an open ground wire or corroded ground point.

My dome light and radio do not work. on my 2001 Ford Escape

It almost sounds like an interuption in the security system. Have the vehicle tested by a dealer or qualified mechanic.

When i start my ford escape the radio goes on for about 2 minutes and then shuts off. Then it doesnt work until i shut the car off and leave the key in the ignition. cant figure out what is wrong with it

Check your radio relay. If it has bad contacts, it will cause the radio to shut down; when you turn the key off, it recycles the relay. Your relay may need to be replaced. You could try swapping it out with another relay from the box to give it a quick test. Just make sure you don't disable anything that wouls make your vehicle unsafe.

Power mirrors don't work on a 2000 Ford Escort ZX2. Located the fuse labeled radio, which the manual says is also for the power mirrors, and it is ok.

Take out the mirror switches and spray it with electronic cleaner or electrical cleaner. This is a common problem with power mirrors.

I have a 2001 Ford Escape & the radio (sound & lights) and cigarette lighter will not work. The radio lights come on when I turn my headlights on, but no sound will come out. I have never had...

First thing you should do is check the fuse panel for blown fuses. Odds are it is just a fuse and you will be up and running in no time.

Radio and interior dome lights have no power.

I just had the same problem with my 2001 escape from relacing the radio and wires accidently crossed. I switched both fuses like you said, and got no where...until....I noticed there is a 10 fuse hidden on the far right side of the panel, closest to the brake pedal. The fuse actually runs vertical unlike any of the other fuses which run horizontal, so it is kind of hidden..try that fuse, it should solve your problem, if not then I don't know sorry..
