Looking to see if anyone has experienced this or has any suggestions.
Been having some issues with my FX50 starting and the battery going dead. I chalked it up to a bad battery (it was pretty old) so I replaced it this morning. Drove it around some today and everything seemed fine.
This evening, my wife went out to do some shopping and when she returned she shut off the car while we unloaded, then I started it back up to park it. Nothing out of the ordinary until I shut it off. I could hear a whirring sound coming out of the engine compartment. I thought it might be a cooling fan or something. I tried to restart the engine and got no response (everything lit up normally, but wouldn't crank, same as before I replaced the battery). I then popped the hood and tried to find out where the sound was coming from. It sounded like it was towards the back of the engine and there was a hot electrical smell. After a minute or so, the sound kinda ground down to a stop and every light in the vehicle when out. Nothing works...no lights, no locks, nothing.
Hopefully it just popped a fuse, but what was causing the fan noise is also concerning.
