No turning signals

more than likely the turning signal module is shorting out and needs to be replaced or the harness connecting to it is shorting out hence the drain.. To stop the drain remove the indicator fuse and relay from the fuse box under the hood. This will also prevent an electrical fire and get this looked at asap. from a trained professional... I would also recommend you remove the negative battery terminal.

Heater not working on two highest settings

If you mean that the fan\'s two highest speeds are not working, it is probably the resistor pack. The resistor pack looks like this:1_9_2013_12_58_17_am.jpgThe back side of the part is inserted into the blower assy - only the black plastic portion with the therminals is visible when installed. This part typically sells for less than $20 and is easily replaced with common hand tools in 30 minutes or less. Below is an overview of the heating / cooling blower assembly:1_9_2013_1_13_18_am.jpgAccess to the resistor pack is usually from under the dashboard on the passenger side. You may end up being in an uncomfortable position in order to gain access to the switch and wiring harness plug. Make sure that you note the orientation of the part on the blower housing by marking it prior to removal or by photographing it with a camera or the camera application in your cell phone. This will help ease installation of the new part.I hope this helps and good luck!

I have no heat unless the car idles for

Before even trying a new thermostat, try blocking air flow past the radiator and engine area with some cardboard in front of the radiator. If your temp. gauge shows below half all the time, try a hotter rated thermostat, one that stays closed just a bit longer. Say your t-stat is rated at 190 degrees, get one that is rated at 193 degrees- do small raises to avoid overheating-and in the summer, you may want to go back to the lower rated t-stat.. A parts store or Ford dealer could help you pick an optional thermostat. To replace, drain enough coolant from the radiator so the level in the engine is below the thermostat housing. Take off the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing. remove retaining bolts or nuts from the housing, any other obstructions, and pull the housing off, replace thermostat, clean the gasket mating area on the housing and the engine block, use a new gasket and fit all back together. Careful not to overtighten the t-stat housing bolts: the torque specs would be small-about 15-20 foot pounds of torque-just snug them down good-you can always go back and re-tighten a little if you see a leak. So, all back together, refill coolant and overflow tank, run engine with radiator cap off till engine is hot, and thermostat opens-this will helpyou bleed air out of the system. When thermostat opens, coolant level should drop a little. Shut off the engine, top up radiator and overflow tank as necessary, and replace radiator cap. Check for leaks.

1991 ford escort battery keeps dying

Check and clean and tighten all battery, starter, and alternator connections. Also the battery and engine to chassis grounds. Did you have the battery " load tested" as a good test requires? Take the battery out and have it charged up. If the alternator is good, you should not have any more problems. But if you need a jump after a few days to start it, then either the alternator or the battery is just not up to par. Have the alternator tested while on the car and running. Good luck.
