Question about Ford Escort
There two things to be aware of,
1 the condition of your battery, if it is more than 5 years old it could be the main problem
it can maybe no longer hold any change, (check battery condition, see if there is a little window on the top, if it is any colour than green it could need replacing, this is the first thing to change as the second maybe expensive but not needed.
2. your charging system is not working e.g. the alternator, (generator) and need replacing.
use jump leads or a slave unit to get your car started or use a change unit and charge your battery for a few hours, let it charge for a while and see if the red charge light is on while the engine is running, (it looks like a battery block with positive and negative symbols -+ if this stays on it means you battery (no matter what condition it is) is not getting a charge(suspect point 2). if this light is off and you experience the same problem again after your battery changed from a slave unit or from another car then suspect point 1.
i hope this was useful
