Electric seats quit working. Replaced fuse the first time, they worked again. Two weeks later neither seat works and fuse does not fix the problem and does not look blown.

2013 still under warranty? Check w/the dealer as it sounds like the electric motor(s) have died, or the body control computer is dead.

2001 Ford 4 door was runningg great turned off went inside an hour later tried to start and it wouldn't turn over, also can't shift automatic in neutral. Tried to jump start thought it was dead...

I'm thinking its the battery. Heat kills batteries. You said it wont jump start. That's a dead ringer for a bad battery. It may have enough juice to power some things, but wont run the starter, or the fuel pump, or the ignition(spark). Try a new battery and let me know!

Elecrical system is dead on 84 subaru gl

You should check the fusible links. You can find them under the hood. They are designed to melt to protect the wiring in the car from over current. They will probably be in a box.

86 subaru gl wagon not firing.

I have the same problem with my 86 GL 4WD. One day it started to turn, and then lost all power. I couldn't even turn on the lights. I have played with the ignition switch wires, and gotten it to fire. I think there may be a short somewhere in the switch or the wires to the harness, but I have not isolated it yet. You might check your ignition switch and wiring...
