Re: 1991 Escort will not start please help
The advice "rtg143" suggested does not apply to your car in UK , obviously different in USA models .Is the battery ok ? Because the lights come on does not mean there is enough power to turn engine . Are you getting power at starter motor ? If you remove starter motor you can test on bench with a couple of jump leads. If ok then a case of checking back to trace fault .Could check earth cable from engine / g/box to body is ok .
