P1633 and P0511 even after changing A/C clutch

I have a 2005 Duratec bull and she's up on jacks. I was on my way out of town and I started smelling a faint burnt odor. Never good. Then she started stalling. I pulled over and popped the hood and could see smoke coming from the serpentine belt, near the A/C compressor. While I waited on a tow, everything went dead. When I got home, I replaced the battery, which was right at 5 years old. After researching the forums, I replaced the #18 fuse, which was fried. Then replaced the A/C clutch, which was toast. I made sure the A/C pulley would spin.

Unfortunately, the belt is still smoking and has a bad squeal. But it's no longer stalling. I unplugged the A/C clutch and no change. I've got a shop manual on order. Any suggestions in the meantime?

Well, I pulled the codes before I left for work and there are none! If the codes stay cleared, the only issue is the smoking belt

Both codes could be related to low volts and idle not managed by the PCM. As in the belt caused the low volts and bad idle speed.

As to the belt, be 100% sure the belt is routed correctly. I mis routed a DOHC and it tensioned. But began to squeal when above idle. Usually a mis route will not tension. And it ruined the belt.

Outstanding advice. I'm an idiot. The belt was routed wrong. I routed it correctly and no more squeal or smoke. Fingers crossed that the fix sticks. I'll put everything back together this afternoon after I double-check the air gap. Whew.
