Burn smell in cab

Hey guys, something weird has happened to my truck! It has been a balmy -45c here this last week and I have had no issues until last night. I started my truck to let it warm up and upon entering the truck I could smell a slight burning smell in the cab. It almost smells electrical but it defiantly is not that, I also notice a little humming sound even at idle which I have never herd before.

I was thinking it could be my heater blower motor going, but even turning the heater off I can still hear the humming.

Any ideas?

The blower motor would have been my first thought as well, but since you turned it off and the condition remained, I don't know. Maybe alternator? Just a guess.

BTW - I noticed the IBEW logo in your avatar. I assume you are a member. I was a member of CWA for over 20 years, until I got into management. I miss those days those.

Do you have the supplemental heater system?

No heater system..

So, tonight I use the command start to start the truck and boom it fires up and stays running for the 15 minutes the command stays on for. I got out and now I have no power what so ever. No interior lights, no dash lights and I cant even start the truck.. DEAD. I still smelt the burning smell on the passenger side, I guess I will have to get a hold of Ford tomorrow and get it towed over.

I hope they don;t come back with some BS saying my tuner or lift caused the issue Wish me luck guys.
