1997 Ford Escort 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 111500 miles
Aye, when it rains it pours. I have just replaced radiator, spark plugs and wires, and new battery. The car has been idling rough for about a month - it seems to up and down especially when sitting at a light. Tonight, after getting new battery yesterday I shut off and locked up, then decided to go back out as I needed something.
Car would not start. No battery turn over (on a new battery as of day before yesterday. I had had trouble with another battery and returned it and got this one. The other battery kept dying and had to be recharged - 3 times in 4 days.)
Pushed the key to lock the door and the lights on the inside seemed to light up and go off and on and then off! Did something short?
have the same problem?
