thought it was the air conditioner- replaced all of that- still did it. turned on the fan for some reason, same thing. grinds to a halt with smoke.

What “grinds to a halt with smoke?” The fan or the vehicle? Either way I think you have a bad fan motor. Get it out of the circuit as quickly as possible.
