The Ford Escort is a compact passenger car that has been delivered to markets around the world for 5 generations since 1968. The 4-door sedan assembled on its platform is also known as the Ford Orion. This publication will provide an assignment of Ford Escort (Orion) fuses and relays with box diagrams and photographs for the latest generation, produced in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003. During this period of production, the car was restyled 2 times. Therefore, the version of the box with fuses and relays largely depends on the year of manufacture and the level of equipment.
