  1. This same scenario just happened to my 01 and wanted to chime in, in case someone else runs into this issue and is wondering what is going on. The Burning smell is a Triac on the ECM burning up. It will need to be repaired and also the IACV will need to be replaced. There is a fuse that blows under the hood as well which keeps the engine from firing up. I'm getting my ECM repaired as I've heard that if you buy a used one, it will need to be programmed from the dealer or lock smith cause it messes with the interlock switch not allowing you to start your vehicle. My two .02 cents worth.
