Hi, I have a Mercedes C class coupe 2003, recently when I start my engine the electricity in the car is not working, such as the dashboard light and electric windows, the indication light, the radio, and the head light's auto light sensor is not working neither. I need to turn off the car and start again, sometimes it will take me five or six times to have the electricity back again. Please let me know the reason. The fuse is alright, I have also changed a SAM unite. The problem is still there.

I pulled the center console out of my 1997 Ford Explorer XLT (the console with the tape deck, clock, radio etc.). Attached to this console is the 4X4 Selector. Now my 4X4 doesn't work and some interior and exterior lights (dome light, underhood light) and the power windows don't work. Any ideas what I did wrong (it isn't a fuse I checked ALL OF THEM) and if it is the electrical, how much it will cost to fix? Thanks
