Question about 1998 Mercury Villager
Hopefully,the fuse,or breaker for the windows,and seats,is blown,look for this in the, in car fuse panel.Also check for a seat relay,it should be marked.Check,with a test light ,the large wire going to the seat motor,when activated,for voltage.This will tell you if the motor is bad.The window,is most likely the motor in the door.Now,the dash lights,turn the head lights on,and check,with the test light,for voltage at the fuse.The fuse will be marked,dash,or inst.lps.Touch the test light to the top of the fuse on one side,then the other side.If the test light lights up,on one side only,then the fuse is blown,just replace it.If the dash light fuse will not light the test light,on either side of the fuse,replace the headlight switch.The test light can be purchased at a auto parts store,it is cheap.One end,you clip to a good,known,ground.The other end has a point,this is what you touch the contact you want to test,the light in the test light will light up.I hope this was helpful,if so,please let us know.Thank you.

It seems that there is a short circuit somewhere and you have blown the fuses. Two fuses basically. One for the dash board lights and other for the heavy work, ie, seat and the window. Check the fuse box located under the dashboard near the steering column. If found blown, replace them.

Not entirely sure this will fix it but according to the wiring diagrams i'm pulling up from ford the only thing i can see in common between these circuits is the ground circuit. the ground for all three of these systems is behind the drivers kick panel (which is the plastic panel just in front of the drivers door on the inside of the vehicle) you'll be looking for multiple black wires with a screw or bolt attatching them to the body. make sure the bolt is tight and has no corrosion or rust on it and if u dont see anything follow the wires back a little bit and look for a chaffed spot. i hope this helps, if not you could be looking at multiple problems that may have coincedentally happended together. make sure all your fuses are good as well :)

Check you fuses. There is a 10am in the fuse block in the car for the instrument cluster
There is also a 30 amp main fuse under the hood for the seats. Also there is a relay breaker under the dash that could be the issue.
No way to tell if you had water intrusion that could of shorted something out or there is a short in one of the controls for the seats.
Unless you are pretty handy with wiring diagrams and diagnostic procedures checking fuses is about all you can do. You glove box book has all the fuse locations and meanings.
If a fuse popped there was a reason and it could happen again if the fault is not found
