Question wiring harness

Hello, my name is Kara . I own a 95 Ford Escort 1.9 L and am looking for the main wiring harness, the "instrumental" harness. It goes from the the fuse box to the dash board, my wiring is bad at both the fuse box and the radio. Mine went bad and Ford doesn't make them anymore. My car is all auto (doorlocks, windows, mirrors, seatbelts, etc.) Do you know or have anything that my help? Do you know if there is anything I can do since Ford discontinued a part on a car that is under 10 years old?

Thanks~Kara

My suggestion is to check a local junkyard. The part will be used, of course, but are usually in perfectly usable condition. If you do find it, it should also be much, much cheaper than getting it from the dealer. You should just be able to tell the person running the place the same information you told us (make, model, year, and specific part), and they should be able to tell you if they have a vehicle there that might match.

If you can't find it at any local junkyards, let us know, because there are a few stores that might carry it as well.

oh, I forgot in my first reply, have a very good and reputable mechanic/auto shop, preferably one who specializes in car electronics, take a look at why that harness went bad before you put the new one in. Primary harnesses like that don't simply 'go bad'. Especially where you mentioned that you had problems with/around the fuse box and going to the radio, it sounds like there may have been a major short or surge somewhere.
Also, if you have an aftermarket (not the original) radio, you may want to have the mechanic start there, as there are symptoms in that area, and some of the most common car electrical problems come from improperly installed audio equipment or other permanently installed electronic devices.
