Was driving down road and smelled electrical burn. Stopped and removed fuse, when I got home and replaced fuse to duplicate problem A.C. would not come on, burning smell gone. How do I get a.c. working again?

Well it's temping to put in biggfer fuses as the problem gets worse but the size of the fuses are to keep you from burning things up so you've from your probem with a 30 amp smoke test. The raditor fan wire is melted somewhere in the wire harnes to the wire for the trck lock or even key on circirts. the likly place to look is inside the stering collum. It takes the skills of removing the steering whel and the lcok plate and even then thats does'nt have to be where the problem is. You need to look under the dash after you remove the covers and use you nose to smeel for the burnt wiring and open up any thing the smells like it's been hot and anything the appers melted together. once a harness is found melted you need to seragete all the wires in the loom but don't cut the wires justy seaparte them. once you think you've got then all pulled apart so no bear wires touch each other or any meal parts put in the correct size fuses and see if you can connect the battery with out a spark. if you can you may then start checking to see what works and what does'nt.. This all sounds like too much work or too hard to do then you'll need to pay someone theat knows alot about car wiring problems to do it for you. I'll been doing this kind of work for the last 20 years and a'm alawys finding new things that are fried and burnt up. We all charge by the hour to do this work so the most experieced mechanic that works on cars like yours will probly find and fix the problem the fastest. therefore they may charge more per hour but their likly to get it right quicker and it'll stay fixed after they fix it.. This is the most likly kind of work to go sour after it's fixed cause they might miss a circuit that you use and they did'nt try. and as soon as it burns again it's back to the drawing board and if big fuses are use the fire can take the whole car.
check the resistor connector sometimes burns if hvac is left in the same possition all the time. For safty reasons hvac always goes to default witch is defrost. Pop out the glove box and check resistor is right there, also radio and hvac wiring is in the same harness. PS hvac, heating,ventilation,air conditioning. good luck Kirk, fe6fc
Hello sit in side turn key to on position do not crank engine you should hear a grunt sound like grrrrr this is your fuel pump if you do not hear this your fuel pump is not working and will need replaced .The smell your smelling is that of high either spray in your engine.
A major short. I wouldn't use the car. Especially if you smelled a burning smell. because your car can catch fire. This is very rare to happen to a car, but take it to an electrical system repair garage.
Sounds like you may have a vacuum line off or ruptured going to the EGR valve. The burning smell is probably the catalytic converter. When the engine runs rich you will get a sulfur smell that smells sort of like rotten eggs.
relay was stuck. Now you replace the relay and a few burnt fuses and the burnt wiring. You should have fixed this at the first warning sign of a problem...sadly, now you pay the price for not doing so.
