Where is the power control module on a 1997 ford escort wagon?

PCM / ECU is located in front of the center console.
Remove center console: 
Remove plastic retaining plugs on each side of front of console use a very small screwdriverto lift the center plug.
Move front seats all the way forwarding and remove two back screws on the back part of the console. 
Lift up the front end of the rear part of console and remove two screws that hold down the front part of console, rear of shifter.
Before you can remove the front part of the console the gear shifter must be moved from out of park position, if your car is an automatic. Note: If the battery is disconnected you will need to use the emergency access portin the top of the console. Remove a small cover plug and insert a small screwdriver or ink peninto the hold to release the shift lever out of park. With the shift lever out of the way the console can be removed.

Where is the location of the fuel pump driver module on a 2001 mercury cougar

This module is located behind the interior side trim panel, LH side behind the front seat, below the rear LH side glass. AKA B Pillar trim panel. Access from inside, probably will require removal of the rear seat bottom and even top of seat to remove the panel. it will be the small box in the center of that area once the panel is removed. Good luck!

My reverse lights dont come on...i replaced the bulbs but nothing...

You have a backup light switch that may have gone bad, You need to go to an auto parts store and see what the part looks like and ask them where the location of the switch is , base on the model and type of vehicle you have,it could be located on the steering collum if your gear selector is on your steering wheel, or by your floor shifter if your gear shifter is on the floor between the front seats..

My reverse light not working and I did check the fuse it's ok.

in the area where the gear shifter is located (center console, or on the colum)
there is a switch that this shifter will operate only in reverse to enguage the light in the rear of the vehicle. or you may need to pull the light out anyways to check if its contacts are bad or corroded, as I have had this problem in the past with customers cars. its rarely the shifter switch, most likely its the light . good luck

No turn signals or hazards???

Check the FLASHER unit; the turn signal flasher is mounted in a clip on the right side of the steering column support bracket. The hazard flasher is located in the component center, under the instrument panel, on the right side. Replace the flasher by unplugging the old one and plugging in the new one.

Hazard flasher -->> The Flasher is located: Front seating area, passenger side, under dash, below glove compartment, mounted in fuse panel

Turn signal -->> The Flasher is located: Front seating area, driver side, under dash, mounted on passenger side of steering column

Good luck (remember comment and rated this).

How to replace fuel pump 1991 mr2

You have to drop the gas tank. Its inside the tank and under the car. Which is between the seats. Take the ash tray out, radio bezel, and center console off. (The one between the seats). Then you will see the wiring in front of the gear shifter, and under the radio area. Disconnect all wires. The do the hard lines in the engine compartment. Make sure to disconnect ALL the lines! you dont want to bend or brake them.
