Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
This car has a Constant Control Relay Module in it I believe. This is where your fuel pump relay is located. It can be expensive if this whole part is bad so make sure to have it checked before buying a new one. There is a fuel pump inertia switch, it may have been tripped. If it is there will be no power to the fuel pump. It should be located umder a small round cover that is below the interior fuse box. (drivers side) Take the cover off and you should see a red button. If it is up then it has been tripped somehow. Push it back down until it clicks. If it was tripped that should fix your problem. Hope this helps.

Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they just stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.
It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.
If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.
