Question about 1997 Ford Expedition
Sometimse the power windows wont work and the alternator isnt charging when you kill it it wont start with batery power after it asits for a while it starts fine
Your rear brake light switch might need replacing, you can get free advise from any mechanic about that... As for your heater,hows the radiators cooling system flowing and when was the last time you had it checked or serviced for a thorough clean flush. But first of all, check weather you need to top up with water to max level. The coolant level between min and max is concidered ok, but indicating a leak from 1 of the cooling system hoses, you need only to find and tighten the hose clamps .If the reservior level is below 1/2 way, It is recommended to service the radiators cooling system... replacing the thermostat would be an upgrade to elimanate a possibilty, which requires mechnical assistance and obviously as a last resort to have done... replacing any heater relays and blown fuses is a bonus but also a possiblity...a faulty heater tap causes heater problems. Again asking for free mechnical advise for this or some 1 else who can visually check that its working as you adjust the heater temprature switch while checking for leaks and rough operating sounds from the heater motor under the dash port ...checking faulty heater switchs...then theres taking the whole front dash port out to get at the heaters motor, which im sure you probably wont have to do as you mentioned that the fans are working.

If there is power to the big wire that is bolted on to the back of the alternator and no power out of the small wires that plug in to the alternator then it is possible you need to replace your alternator. start the vehicle and check to see if there is 14 volts at the battery while the vehicle is running if there is then the alternator is good if not replace your alternator and charge your battery with a charger to make sure you have a proper charge on the battery.

look under the hood on the passenger side for a broken vacuum line. this is usually a white plastic or black plastic tube. you can splice it together with a small rubber vacuum hose.

no heat is probably low coolant or bad thermostat,although you have fog and smell ! the heating and cooling systems are closed systems the only way the windows fog is the coolant is hot and steams inside the car due to some leak inside the heater core box. as well as the smell being present. Now it is possible that a little leak has occured where the coolant supply or return line connects to the heater core and is running into the car which is running onto the core and creating steam and smell. hopefully it is a easy clamp tighten fix for you.
