I´m so happy right now. I finaly have a power hatch release in my Scort. I was sad to find out that when I bought this car it had power nothing, even though it was a GT. No power locks, no power windows, and no power hatch release. Well I was at the Junkyard today getting some parts for the fuel injection conversion that my bro and I are doing to his VW Bug, and we just happened to come along a 90 Scort GT with a power hatch release. I snatched that thing right up. Total was $19, can´t beat that. As soon as I got home I put it right in. Wouldn´t you know that the holes are already pre drilled for it, and the wire harness already has the connectors, so it was a 100% plug and play operation. The hardest part was digging behind the glovebox to find the connector for the button. The connector for the solenoind was in plain view after I removed the rear carpet panel thingie. Now I just need to find out if the 1st gen Scort ever came with power locks. I really want those. Power windows I can do without. but if they exsist and I can find rig them up easy enough I just might. Does any other 1st genner have a scort with stock power locks??? Let me know so I can start scouting for some of my own.

i really dont think any 1st gen escort ever came with power windows or locks.
i was dissapointed that my car didnt have a rear wiper, so i went to the junk yard, and bought a wiper assembly. 6 hours later, i had a gash in my finger from a drill cuck, and a working rear wiper. the only thing wrong with it is that the washer nozzle is clogged! oh well

I know there had to be atleast a power door lock option. My 83 Mustang at least has power windows, and power where it really counts, under the hood.

1st Generation Escorts did have power locks. My 1984 GT had them.
