Have you noticed any thing that doesn't work now or is one of the fuses blown. The fact that you use the a/c shouldn't cause a problem. If a wire got too hot it either melts the rubber insulation or blows a fuse. If should blow the fuse first.

2008 Mercury Mountaineer electrical issues


This is a devious problem which could lie anywhere. So many things not functioning would perhaps be a ground problem. Maybe take some extra care in cleaning the battery terminals, check if the ground wire is connected to the chassis. Do you have rodents in your area? Maybe they nibbled some wire somewhere?

Check transmission fluid. If full then sounds like electrical or internal transmission problem. Any check engine lights on? If so get codes pulled from vehicle computer.

Smoke coming out of dashboard by the fuse box from a 95 z-71 1500 series


Smoke coming out of the dash by the fuse box sounds like a serious electrical system malfunction to me. I would recommend diagnosis and repair by a qualified auto repair technician before your vehicle burns to the ground.

Sounds like a possible fuel pump problem...When they begin to go bad they will overheat and lock up, then work fine for a while and do the same thing again. By changing the filter you lowered the flow resistance and allowed the pump to work a bit easier but still being bad, it did the same thing again. There are other things that can do this as well, but pump is most common.

Bmw320 td se 1999-2000 model battery warning light came on smoke


Sounds like your water pump is out or siezed momentarily. This would cause your alternator to not charge your battery (hence battery light) and also would explain the water. The smoke would have been caused by the friction from the belt. Does the car still run?

Do not leave the car in the garage without the battery disconnected until you locate the source of the smoke, the best tool to find the smoke's source is your nose, smell the area around the source of the smoke, if you smell a really nauseating smell you found it, then look for signs of burnt wires or burnt components, also look for any oil that may have caused the smoke, but I doubt that was the source, this sounds electrical. I know of no problems for your car that would cause this, so most likely it is not a common problem.
