Most likely the multi-function switch... you know, the lever that turns on headlights, works blinkers, and high and low beams, needs replaced.

Headlights went out on a 98 ford escort while driving


if both headlights went out at the same time, check your fuses. because high beams use more power than headlights, they are often on a separate fuse. if fuses are fine, replace the headlights.

Where can I find the electrical specs? the blinkers both stopped working. The hazard blinkers do work.


Any other strange electrical issues? Headlights, blower, wipers?
Its quite possibly the ignition switch. Just had to replace it on my daughter's 97 jetta. She had first the blinkers behaving erratically, then it was random electrical issues after that. At first we were sure it was in the combination switch, or the arms off the steering column that operate the blinkers, wipers etc. Unfortunately, that change didn't fix it. After a bit more research I learned the ignition switch on these creates these symptoms. Changing the switch wasn't very difficult with a diagram and a bit of experience and the part was only about 30.00.
Hope I've helped -Good luck!

Fast Blinker


Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.

Headlight change


Bulb should come out of back of headlamp housing. May need to remove battery if bad bulb is on that side.

Broken rear coil springs on my 98 escort


Its NOT difficult but you would need a SPRING compressor. This tool can be rented from an AUTO ZONE when you return this tool you will get you money back. You just have to compress spring and remove shock absorber and replace in the opposite. Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
