first off, history on climate controller. blower only works between 2 and 3 speed setting. must hit perfect for blower to turn. replaced resistor and did not fix problem. replaced blower motor, same. replaced climate controller with salvage piece, same. lived with it for years. recently started smelling burning electrical inside passenger compartment. was really bad. then one day on start attempt, turning key to first position, had normal electric (interior lights, windows and all). as soon as i turn ignition, lost all power to everything and it didnt come back. no interior power and of course no start. disconnect and reconnect of battery cable gave me back my interior power but repeated same outcome with ignition attempt. pulled blower resistor, left connected, and connected battery, no key. porcelain became very hot, could barely touch it. replaced again, same problem. any ideas?
