I drive a Ford Mondeo MK1, trim variant GLX, manufactured in 1993, powered by 1.6 cmc 16v Zetec E engine.
The car has no air conditioning fitted, only the standard heater blower.
My heater resistor pack failed to work so I disable it in order to be replaced with a new one.
My heater blower system now works in direct mode, without the heater resistor pack mounted.
Today, while I was driving with heating switched on, I felt a burning smell in the cabin and soon I noticed smoke coming through the heater control panel - center control switch, so I turned off the heat.
I would be grateful if you could help me diagnose the failure and suggest possible solutions.
My hunch would be that the problem could be the central control switch failure or a cable behind the heater control panel.
