On 1999 ford explorer smelled a burning smell, then all power windows quit, what can it be
it seems likely that you have an electrical issue. If you are not electrically or mechanically capable I would suggest taking it to a mechanic you trust or even better would be a friend that is an electrician that can test the electrical connections and rerun wiring and thereby fixing your issue hopefully, good luck let me know how it works out for you.
I use an 25 year journeyman electrician for problems such as these with my Drag Racing vehicles, well and all my vehicles two boats and a truck and SUV and my daughters camry. HE does alot better than the mechanics and I can usually get it done for a 12 pack.

Hi I have a ford escort 1600 gl 1978 model my probleem is it is leaking oil from its crankseal i did replace it what can be the probleem it still leaks
Hi did you check the condition of the crankshaft when you replaced the seal, were there any signs of rust on the sealing surface of the crank or any scores. Make sure that the oil level is correct and check if there is excess crank case pressure, you can do this by running engine till hot and remove dipstick can you feel pressure at the dipstick hole. Put your finger over hole and remove finger is there a puff of pressure. if there is check engine breather system correct if blocked. If there is pressure and breathing system is good get a mechanic to check it you may have an engine issue. What is the condition of the oil is there any signs of hard /solid oil contamination behind the seal. Use a torch and mirror to check.
Is the oil level correct not overfilled. Are you sure you have fitted the correct size seal. If you have a Vernia gauge measure diameter of crank and diameter of outer seal edge on block. These two measurements are normally printed on the seal, cross reference these measurements and see if they are the same or very close. The external size is normally exact the internal is slightly smaller. But by putting the Vernier in the seal slightly open it and you should have the measurement stated on the seal. When fitting new seal make sure it goes on evenly and do not catch the inner part on the edge of the crank bending the seal in the wrong direction. Also when fitted make sure the distance of the seal is the same all the way round from the edge of the block. Good luck
