Question about Ford Escort
You may just have a bad fusible link. This will often cause several of the cars electrical systems like power windows, sunroof, radio etc. to stop working at the same time. It is usually located at or near the battery and built into the cable with a square plastic box that surrounds the cable. Follow the large positive (red) battery cable from the battery connection towards the starter relay. Look for the long separate wires that connect to the starter solenoid or a square fuse box that surrounds the cable. That is the fuse link and has blown due to a current surge condition, the box or insulation around the wires will show bubbling and melting (it's supposed to do that) or it may just have crystallized and gone bad. Basically, it is just a wire or strip of metal connecting the two ends of the cable. Replacement links are available at most auto parts stores. I hope this helps Tim
