HI......
ON your MITSUBISHI 3000gt.
The electronic part that is located on the Passanger side.
at right LOWER of the center console. Is LOCATED the ECM. and TCM...
START your work Disconnecting the battery Terminals. to Eliminate possibles short. in the wiring. or any MODULE.
Remove the cover and see. if the Burn smell is there.
Maybe the ECM.. Can be damaged.
First see if when you turn the Key to RUN Position. The CHECK ENGINE come ON.. If NOT Remove the ECM. and inspect. Check the RELAYS on that Location. Because the FUEL PUMP relay is ATTECHED to the ECM Braket.
and the ECM relay is in NEAR the ECM.

OK.. I hope this can be a initial step to try diagnostic your Vehicle.
Thank you for use fixya.

Any further question let me know. I'm mechanic and have autorepair software on my PC..
..

The fuel pump is in the tank, and should be accessible through an access panel in the hatch, if you look under the carpeting.

It sounds like something else went wrong with the car though - if it simply was fuel-starved, you shouldn't have gotten the smoke/burning smell. There are a lot of electronics in the dash and any one of them could've fried. Unfortunately without taking some things apart, it's going to be very tough to figure out what caused it.

    Glad it helped at least a bit - if you get a chance to get in there inside the dash and explore, post back up and request me and I'll see what else I can do for you.

My charger Wont start. Has new battery. Everything else seems fine. Changed the #9 and 22 fuse. Still wont start


Fuses don't make a burning smell when they blow. Yours is far more serious, something has shorted out and irreparably damaged an electrical component or part of the wiring harness. You need a mechanic, preferably at a dealership who have the diagnostic equipment and vehicle history to know where to look.

Why is my 2003 land rover Freelander burning 20amp fuel system fuses


You have an electrical short in that circuit. The fuse is doing its job, preventing a fire (barely). You need to find where the short is before trying to operate this vehicle again, or you will end up setting it on fire. Look for the burned/melted wires.

White smoke from exhaust and rotten egg smell then engine dies


Are you the Joe Thomas from the Cleveland Browns. I think your right the crank sensor lets it start then it dies a few minutes later. My blazer did this and i replaced the crank sensor and i ran fine again.

300zx started smoking then died out


Sounds to me like you had an electrical burn out or near fire condition. Water may have gotten into an open area like wiring harness or fuse block and caused a short and what you were smelling is the insulation or other plastics burning. I would take the car to a auto electric specialist for diagnostics.

I got in my car this morning and I got about 1/2 block away from the house and I started to smell something. Then Smoke started to come out of the vents on the dash board. I have just replaced a unit that...


I assume you replaced the resistor. Often, the resistor failure is caused by the switch, and replacing the resistor will result in burning up another resistor. Recommend you look at your new resistor and if it's burning up, replace the switch. Let me know if you need any instructions.

For an explanation, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6234839-doesn_t_heater_or_air_conditioner_blow . These are generic instructions.
