Not lightning, lol, stupidity! I've been having problems with my blower motor, and have been jumping 12v to it from fuse block to get it to run. I replaced the HVAC cluster in the dash, but still no fan. So I went to hook up my temporary jumper, and attached it to the ground side. The wire got hot! And all the smoke came out! Apparently that's what blew the 50A BCM fuse.
edit: Oh, man I'm dumb! Last night while I was furiously checking fuses in the dark, I must have pulled the PCM/ECM to check and not replaced it. Discovered that just now while checking fuses again. Put one of the spares in, and *so far* it's running like a champ! Boy do I feel stupid!
