I can only suggest one thing that might work.

Disconnect the battery and leave the car overnight. In the morning put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position and then connect the battery.

If that doesn't work you will need the services of an auto locksmith or the dealer. I hope the price you paid for the car was much reduced because of the missing keychain.

Be carefull!! Too much pressure and you might blow some component. Ten pounds pressure is plenty.Replace the pressure cap anyway with a new one from dealer. don-ohio (:^)

un do the adjustment . remove any retaining screws in the face of the drum. Use a hammer and hit between the wheel studs. hit the drum back onto the axle flange If the brakes have been adjusted off then the drum will spring loose.

it is flashing a Lamp Fault Code to tell you what part of your air bag system is faulty. read the number of flashes - pause - number of flashes. Could be 1 digit code or 2 digit code.

What code is it?

Hi there
A1996 Escort should be a automatic adjustment so there isent any adjustment to do as its only the early ones that had adjustable rods,but look under the car and if you can see a thread on the rod then you can adjust it and the adjustment is 1/8 of a inch or 3MM.

before checking for fuse, look inside the right-hand side of the trunk, under the carpet, on the fender wall. there is a cut-off emergency switch there. see if it needs to be pushed in to reset the power to the fuel pump.

Bad Alternator.
After Starting or Jumping your vehicle: Remove the Negative Cable from the Battery.
If the Engine dies or runs really rough it is a bad Alternator.
The Battery Starts the Engine and runs nominal operations. The Alternator runs the Engine after it is Started by the Battery.
If the Engine does not die or runs really rough after removing the Negative Cable, then you have a malfunctioning Battery.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Do you mean the "Stabiliser bush"?
If so, then most cars have a front stabiliser or antirollbar fitted to the front subframe and attached to the front radius arms by links with bonded rubber bushes in. Some cars have a rear system as well working in the same manner as the front.
The only way to know whats worn, is to run it up on ramps in your drive, get down and dirty, and check the supports and bar ends for a worn bush. If this repair isn't within your skills then farm it out to a good DIY or garage.
