The blower fan resistor on a 1997 escort is located on the blower fan itself, behind (underneath) the front passenger side glove compartment. If you lay on the floor you will see a circular shaped black plastic compartment. This is the blower fan.
The blower fan resistor is the part which the two blue electrical connections are. It should be removable with I think it is 2 10mm bolts with a socket. There is often in this vehicle year a number of issues with moisture/corrosion on these connectors. Wiggle the connectors, clean them off and put on some silicon dielectric grease and often that will get your fan working again.
Blower motor located at the passenger side under the dash. Probably the blower motor but you need to check the blower motor resistor and the plug to the resistor. A common cause is the plug tends to melt & short out.
The heater blower on a 97 Ford Escort station wagon is a small electric motor about 5 inches in diameter and it has a squirrel cage fan on the end of the motor shaft.
Many are accessable once you drop the glove box door. I am not sure about yours.
It could be the resistor, if it uses one, it could be the switch, it could be the relay if it uses one, it could be wiring or connectors or if it uses multiple motor windings to control speed it could be the motor. The Blower Motor Resistor Pack is defective. Replace it.
Underneath the wiper motor assy.
Usually when fans stop working it can be contributed to the heater blower motor resistor which is either located in the heater duct underneath the dash or under the hood next to the blower motor.
The most common fault with any blower motors not working is usally the resistor switch which is located in the heater box its self. Richard @ Allander motors
My 97 escort LX sedan has a blower relay located above and to the left of the fuse panel located below the dash next to the door frame. You almost have to be a contortionist to see it since it is located behind the dash panels.
Drop the glove box by pressing the sides one at a time. The glove box will fall open almost to the floor. Looking behind is the blower houseing and to the left of it is the resistor held in by a phillips screw. Remove the plug and screw and resistor. Install in the reverse. Not a hard job at all. Good Luck.
Looking for reset button on a ford 95 escort wagon
The blower motor on my 94 escort LX is under the glove box. I took my glove box out to get more light down there but it was not necessary. There is a black circular plastic cover that is held in by about 4-5 bolts. Just take those out. There are also a blue/black wire and a harness of 4 wires. Just disconnect them by pulling on the plastic tabs. That should be everything. I have water dripping from my motor. I assume that was what killed it. If you have any ideas on how to stop it, let me know.
Yes it is.
No , the 1999 Ford escort wagon is SOHC according to my Consumer Guide book
how do you take off drivers side axle- 93 escort wagon? Kevin

One possibility is your wiper motor is bad. Suggestion- replace it.
my 1997 ford escort wagon 2.0 i put a transmission in it it changes low second but not drive what is the problem
It is possible to put a CD player in a 1997 Ford Escort Wagon LX. The radio models Kenwood KDC-152, Axxera AXD130, and Clarion CZ102 will all work in a 1997 Ford Escort Wagon LX.
Duryea Motor Wagon Company was created in 1895.
There are not any grease fittings on a 1999 Ford Escort Wagon. The vehicle uses sealed bearings instead of grease fittings.
What is the engine size? ............auto or manual?
