I have a 2000 Mercury Sable wagon the air conditioner, radio antenna,dash lights and windows do not work. all went out at the same time. what is the problem? could it be a fuse or breaker?
Those are all different circuits, all unrelated, so it definitely is not a circuit breaker which is common to stand-alone circuits, like the power windows which does use a circuit breaker.
I believe it could be a maxi-fuse, one of those large fuses underneath the hood, which act as power distributors going out to many individual circuits. Your ignition switch has one or two of these maxi-fuses that distribute power through the ignition switch. And I believe there may be a maxi-fuse that sends power to the fuse panel.
So check all your fuses under the hood. Pay particular attention to the maxi-fuses. Beyond that, I don't know. A voltmeter or test light would be helpful to check for power at the fuse panel where all the fuses for your inoperable systems are located. With key in the ON position, all the fuses in your fuse panel should have power going to them. The fuse panel is where the fuses for those systems are located, including the circuit breaker for the power windows.
