Well, the other day when I went to leave I could not get my car out of park and the brake lights would not work. I did some research and found it could have been the brake light switch so we replaced that. Well we have discovered two wires, a red and a green, that seem to have come out of the harness connector on the switch. I have never been down there before so I am wondering is this the case? Is there usually a red and green wire connected to the harness connector on the brake switch? And if so, how do I reconnect them?

when the a/c runs in my 2003 Ford Taurus water leaks onto the carpet on the passenger side under the glovebox.

My car is not leaking fluid....all the fluids are full. The thermostat does not go past half way to let me know its getting hot. The car starts to smoke on the right passenger side front corner around the belt area.However it happened last week and i have been driving the car no problem till this morning and it was pretty cool outside, and i just started driving.It smells like burning chemical i can't tell if it is rubber or antifreeze.There also was condensation all over the surrounding hoses.No heavy leaks that i could tell on the ground.Also i noticed when i start the car it sounds different kinda like a bent fan ir something out of place especially if i am parked on an incline.Pleas any suggestions would be helpful. I also just had transmission work done (i don't think this would effect it but i'm not very knowledgable about vehiculars(:.
