Try cleaning the battery connectors, and then apply die-electirc grease. Probably not making good contact.

This could be two separate problems. Dash and interior lights can be a bad fuse. Second, if the starter cranks over with a new battery, check your electronic fuel pump, and or your kill switch.

Does the Ford Escort use electricity?

Yes - radio, spark plugs, headlights, tail lights, turn signals, overhead light, etc. All of these use electricity from the battery or alternator. If you have a radio with a clock, it uses electricity while the car is off - the battery provides the power. Same thing with leaving the headlights on when the car is off. The battery provides electricity to make them work.
