Hi, no current was getting to fuel pump. Replaced Integrated Relay Control Module with a used one and car started. Ran fine for a few blocks. However, when I returned home and raised hood there was a bad rubber burning smell. Could it be the Integrated Relay Control Module I replaced was not an exact match to the old module and that is what's causing the burning smell. I remember reading somewhere on the internet that Ford made several modules and you have to be sure that when you replace a module with one that has the same Module Number as the number on the module being replaced. Thanks

Yes, the IRCM MUST be replaced with the same model (i.e., the big letter in the box: J, K, S, etc) orthe electrical system will not operate correctly. I have no idea if the smell has anything to do with using the wrong IRCM.

Antifreeze vapor smells like burning rubber, so check for coolant leak in a place when coolant may drop onto something hot, like catalytic converter.
