05 silv both fan fuses blown

it was a normal hot fl day sitting in drive through i noticed a very strong electrical burning smell and neither fan was on even with ac running and temp way above norm it cooled off after very short time driving and when home i discovered both fuses blown i replaced and seems ok for now but i cant figure why both fuses would blow together or at all for that matter the truck has just under 55000 miles and has always worked fine

from the fuse box to the fan mounting area the wires will follow a common path,,,inspect the wires for damage...was this vehicle accident damaged/body repair etc..

Re: 05 silv both fan fuses blown

ohm tested wiring between fuse block and fans checked out ok fans run fine when connected to bat+ individually vehicle has never been wrecked as i have owned it since new everything i can think to check is working normal i just think blowing 2 40 amp maxi fuses at same time along with the smell is odd and i cant figure it out i have also pulled the wires out of the wrap and inspected visually with no signs of damage to wires or connectors

I would inspect under the fuse box...

disconnect connectors for damage/corrosion
