confused Please help! Clueless chick!

I have a 2003 Mustang Convertable and starting about 2-3 weeks ago, whenever I turn on my vents (heat, AC, or regular fan) I have a burning smell that comes though. It almost smells like burning rubber. It hasn't had any work done to it lately. The only think I can think of is about 1.5-2 months ago my ABS light started coming on and eventually when my traction control light lights up they both turn off.

Could the ABS thing have anything to do with the smell? I need to start using my heat soon and can't! :(

Anybody wanna help?

If the cam cover gasket is leaking, even just bit. Motor oil can seep onto the exhaust manifold and cause a burning smell when the fan is turned on.
Check for a cover leak.
Cant explain the ABS.
See a qualified technician.

Can't be completely clueless if your worried about your horse!

I am not familiar with the 2003 wiring, but would suggest checking your wiring to your blower resistors. Smells can be difficult to narrow down to the cause.
