Question about 1997 Mercury Sable
I had the same problem when I changed out my window regulator. Take the door apart remove lock and make sure the rod is connected to the little white piece on back of the child safety lock not under it or in the bottom of your door which is enabling it not to move at all because it is not connected this will fix your problem make sure not to knock the window pin out of place

Begin by jacking up each wheel one at a time and find which is stuck. Likely it's an emergency brake cable but can also be other things. The smell you got is normal when you are slipping the clutch...not good for it but understandable in the context of the situation. If the clutch is in good shape, It is likely still ok. Once you find the binding wheel then you need to determine why it's binding.

SOURCE: 97 GMC Z71 4X4 Not Locking in
If it's a shift - on - the - fly 4wd, then call your local Chevy truck dealer. There was a recall on the Electronic 4wd on these trucks. (common problem). Try this just for the heck of it. With the truck stopped, put in 4hi/lo, then put it in reverse. Back up slightly, (about 5ft or so) and then put it in drive (or first in a manual trans) and go forward. Did it lock in? If it locks in but won't unlock, try backing up to unlock. Hope this helps.
