hi all front wheel manual gear cars have a flywheel ? ,it does sound like a starter motor fault but that wouldnt make the car cut out while on the highway. the best way to rule both your flywheel and starter motor out is to bump start the car that way if it still dont start then it not any of them. if the car starts them im 99% sure it will be the starter motor.

Fuel pump relay was burnt out on mk4 escort rs turbo fitted new one but car still not starting fuel pump is in working order but still not starting


The fact that the relay was burnt, might mean you have a short in the
wiring leading to the fuel pump. Check the wiring under the car to the
back, to make sure nothing cut or damaged it while driving.

Main beam on a series 2 escort rs turbo


check the switch and harness attached to the switch. sometimes the wires come slightly loose in the harness and make a bad connection. this bad connection causes heat and melts the plastic around the wire, making it even looser. eventually it becomes so loose that it makes no connection at all.
