Hoping for a diaognonsis so I don't talk to the mechanics with no knowledge. Symptoms: -the other day I would turn on the blinker and my radio lights would blink at the same time. That never happened before, plus I thought I smelled burnt wiring. -Today, samething but then, I stop/start and I had no dash lights. I got worried that I had no lights at all (it's night) got out and, I had front lights and running lights but no brake lights. More smell of burning plastic. -So I go to start it up, starts fine (was going to drive home) but the brakes feel wierd and it won't let me get out of park. I couldn't get it into drive. Phoned a tow truck, while waiting the interior was was stuck on and wouldn't shut off no matter what. _ I got them to tow it to Canadian tire and I unhooked the battery. Its a '96 ford Ranger... well at least I can still drive my big truck.
