Re: 95 ford escort tries to start on its own
Yes, replace the ignition switch in the steering column NOW! There was a
recall, I think, but I forgot which years it covered. Several cars have
burned in driveways, just sitting. A new switch is readily available and
not too dificult a job as long as you have a manual.
