I have an 01 ford escort zx2 that I got from my grand father and it's giving me all sorts of issues. Last summer I had a blow out on the driver front the plastic cover on the wheel well had been missing part of the tread came loose and tore up some wires afterward my heater nor air have worked nor the window wipers tried taping the wires up did nothing. Then while I was driving this winter one day on the highway it had started raining out of nowhere my dome lights were flickering car tried stalling I got home and went to work the next morning and it wouldn't start I checked the wires again and noticed when I taped them some of wires were touching metal to metal and some had been torn/ shreaded im guessing by the tire tread which blew a main relay under the hood replaced it and patched the wires with some I found laying around as a temporary fix. This worked about two weeks then one evening the flickering happened again but this time my headlights stopped working and my battery also got hot and bulged out there was no water in the cells and they were smoking then in there was a big surge the lights in my car got really bright and the car started acting like it was out of gas and sputtered till it died I pulled in a parking lot and tried to start the car again it nothing. popped the hood and checked my relays the fuel injection relay was blown I picked up a new battery and a new 30 amp fuse tried starting the car again and it turned over but wouldn't start the relay had also popped a second time. Does anyone having any ideas as to what the heck is going on?
