Ford Escort - 1997 Fuse Box Diagram

Do not place objects or
mount equipment on or
near the air bag cover on the
steering wheel or in front seat
areas that may come into contact
with a deploying air bag. Failure
to follow this instruction may
increase the risk of personal
injury in the event of a collision.
Do not attempt to service,
repair, or modify the air
bag SRS or its fuses. See your
Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer.
AIR BAG SYSTEM
DESCRIPTION
The air bags and their
corresponding warning and
information labels are found in the
following locations:
The air bag system activates in
collisions more severe than hitting
a parked vehicle (of similar size
and weight) head-on at
approximately 20 km/h (13 mph).
This activation speed may vary if
your vehicle is involved in a
collision with something that will
move or deform and according to
the angle of impact. The air bag is
not designed to inflate in rollovers,
side impacts, or rear impacts.
Air bags and air bag equipped
vehicles should be disposed of only
by qualified service personnel
using Ford approved procedures.
The system consists of two parts:
Seating and safety restraints
63
3. Push and hold the thumb
button.
4. Move the gearshift.
If it is necessary to use the above
procedure to move the gearshift, it
is possible that a fuse has blown
and the vehicle’s brakelamps may
not be operating properly. For
more information on fuses and fuse
replacement, refer to
Fuses and
relays
in the
Roadside
emergencies
chapter.
Do not drive your vehicle
until you verify that the
brakelamps are working.
If an automatic transaxle vehicle
gets stuck in mud or snow it may
be rocked out of the spot. To rock
the vehicle out, shift between
forward and reverse gears in a
steady rhythm. Press lightly on the
accelerator in each gear. Do not
rock the vehicle for more than a
few minutes; this could damage
the vehicle.
Do not spin the wheels at
over 55 km/h (35 mph).
The tires may fail and injure a
passenger or bystander.

FUSES AND RELAYS
If electrical components in the
vehicle are not working, a fuse
may have blown. Blown fuses are
identified by a broken wire. Check
the appropriate fuses before
replacing any electrical
components.
Use the fuse puller tool provided
on the passenger compartment
fuse panel cover to replace fuses.
Always replace a fuse with
one that has the specified
amperage rating. Using a fuse
with a higher amperage rating
can cause severe wire damage
and could start a fire.

Even after a fuse is replaced, it
will continue to blow if the cause
of the overload is not identified
and corrected. If a fuse continues
to blow, have the vehicle’s
electrical system checked.
The (POWER WIND) 30A on the
instrument panel fuse panel cover
represents a circuit breaker that
contols the vehicle’s power
windows. The circuit breaker is
located just above the fuse panel
cover. To reset a circuit breaker,
press the reset button.
The (HEATER) 30A circuit
breaker controls the vehicle’s
heater. The circuit breaker is
located just above and to the left
of the instrument panel fuse panel.
To reset a circuit breaker, press
the reset button.
