1998 Ford Explorer

Computer problem
1998 Ford Explorer 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 165 miles

My " message center" lights, alarms, and all vehicle system monitors stopped working. It started as an occasional malfunction and now won't work at all. The reset buttons also don't work. I can't find any references to the system in the on line owners manual or in my Chiltons manual. Can you tell me what the problem could be and how to fix it. I'm also not even sure if it's a computer problem or an electrical problem.
