What happened?

Most likely a power connection was shaken loose by the rumble strip. Or a partially poor circuit was shaken violently enough it shorted fully and blew a main control fuse. I would check fuses in the underhood fusebox for power (not just that they dont look blown, a multimeter or test light should be used). There is a Body control module that is triggered by the 10a ECU-IG fuse (look in your manual) and if its fuse is blown, then it cant activate the MAIN POWER RELAY, which is...the relay that powers much of what you dont have (lighting, windows, shifter, etc).

Unless you are experienced and have diagrams and locations, this could be more than the average bear can handle, Id recommend referring it to a qualified professional who has access to the wiring diagrams, component locations, plug pinouts, and can go straight to the common points. But you could try checking what I just gave you...and pray for luck.

2004 Ford Escape. When the car is in drive or reverse, the radio is on but I can hear the sound. When it is in Park, everything is fine.

go to radio shack and see if you can buy a noise filter for the radio. i did this years ago and it worked fine. the reason why you can hear it in drive is there is more spark under power and therefore if a plug wire etc is bad you will hear it!!

Check serpentine belt. It may be broken.
If all belts are in good shape and tensioned properly have the car looked at by a mechanic for troubleshooting.

Powersteering, radio, windows won't work

Hello and thanks for using FixYa!, the problem with your sable is that the transmission range sensor needs to be replaced, back in 1996 and 1997, the circuitry internal to the sensor caused an interference with several other systems in the car, including the radio, power steering and power windows. Have the sensor replaced and it will need to be adjusted, so it is best done by a ford dealer who would have the proper alignment tool.

Power steering

quite often ford steering pumps make noise, but if it is hard to steer, the fluid is probably low. First check underneath to see if there is a puddle, if there is then find and fix the leak. next, start it and get it to normal op. temp., while idling, pull the pump plug/ dipstick, check the level, add fluid if necessary. Steer the wheels back and forth a time or two, then check the level again. Double check underneath, visually inspect for puddles/wet spots. does the problem change after these steps? Theres not likely any water in it, therefore freezing isn't likely. Hope this helps.
