The motor is cheap at any parts store. Make sure it's not the relay first.

Well let me start with the fan that was in the car looks like I it went to a Honda, right now I'm stuck at a crossroads on how I'm supposed to wire in a factory fan I obtained. The harness is all chopped up and the relay is taken apart, when I run a power wire to the fan and turn the A/c on to make the wire hot the ground starts smoking. Not sure what to do from here I've looked into aftermarket fan controllers and thinking this be my best route instead of some reneck rigging with a toggle switch and some speaker wires directly to the battery

The stock wiring uses a power wire that has a relay to activate it. The power wire is a heavy wire and if you don't use a thick enough wire it will get overloaded and fire is not out of the question.

You need either somebody who is competent for this wiring job, or you need the schematic. I would not use speaker wires for this job.

Hope this helps you
