Answers :

Bad erarth connection, very cvommon. Firstly check the main ground from the car battery to the car body, then check the black earth wire from the back light clusters to the inside of the boot floor. ensure they have good contacts and have not corroded etc.
\015\012Also the light cluster boards on these escort corrode, you may need to remove the back light cluster and clean it up ensure all the bulbs are the correct ones, a wrong bulb can also cause this fault as the earth connection is contacting another.
\015\012there is also an earth from the car battery to the gearbox and another 2 going to the starter and the altenator.
\015\012Hope this helps
