Hello nicholsanche,

The only 1999 Ford Escort that I could locate was the ZX2.

What you need is a "wiring harness". The Scosche catalog shows their number Scosche FD16B / FD16 for 1998 and up Ford vehicles. Here is a link to the Scosche product:

Metra also makes wiring harnesses and you can purchase them from www.crutchfield.com. At either Crutchfield or SonicElectronix, you can talk to an audio technician who can look up exactly what harness your vehicle requires. You'll also need some connectors to splice the wiring from your Alpine to the wiring harness. Crutchfield and SonicElectronix sells them also, or you can get them from your local Radio Shack, Lowe's, or even WalMart

You will also need to know the color coding of the vehicle wires. Go here for the '99 Ford Escort.

Hope this helps.
