Battery light Is on and I smell burning wires in my sant? fe. Any ideas?

I would suggest taking to a mechanic at this point. Anytime you smell burning wires, it's not a good sign. You could have a short somewhere that could potentially catch on fire.

I have 2001 ford ecpedition 4.6 with a code p0306 cylinder #6 miss fire but has a burning smell, why?

Chances are it had oil on it @ some point and it now has a small hairline Crack, the easiest way to Check this is to Spry water on it with a bottle Sprayer.You should notice a missfire @ this point when running the Engine and since it it is a coil the Plastic covering will burn and smell also, Check the Wire's to the Spark plugs as these are Probably the original fault.if the Electrical charge is not getting to the Plug then it backs up in the Coil.which will cause it to over heat and crack

Burning smell whenever i pull off, go up steep hills or simply reverse up my drive

1) Check the brake pads all round. If a caliper is sticking (not retracting fully) then the pad will remain in contact with the disc rotor and gets very hot giving off burning smells. 2) If you have a manual transmission it could also be that your clutch is at the point of failing. A slipping clutch is indicated in gear the engine races irrespective of the the car accelerating along with a smell of burning.

The burning rubber smell may be a slipping belt; as the belt slips it will literally overheat to a point it has a burning smell (it will not burst in to flames though) The belt I would expect, given you issue, is that of the power steering pump. If the pump is beginning to sieze (not wanting to turn) the belt may begin to spin on the pump pulley. Curious if you have any noise of the belt slip, typically a high-pitched squeal? If the belt is slipping it should have a glazed or shinny look to it. In writting I come to think that just the belt itself may be old/worn, not to proper tension and causing the issue. In short if this is the issue it may be as simple of replacing the belt and put to proper tension or poosibly the power steering pump has begun to fail. The attached image may help
I hope this may have assisted you,

I have no power to the the radio

You will have to chase your power wire back to the fuse panel and/or the battery itself. The burning smell was more then likely the main power cord burning up. Replace it and it should all work well.
