2002 Dodge Dakota Question: Hello can anyone help me? Why is my AC wires under dash burning up?

 

Question

I've already replaced the connector, and this
element looking thing that sticks inside the
black box under the dash on passenger side of truck! Just the other day I started smelling a burning smell again, and I reached over, and the wires are burning again! I just got it fixed about 6 months ago, so I'm unable to use air conditioner once again! Also ever since I've had the truck it holds a massive amount of water under the carpet in the passenger side floorboard! I've dried it
out several times, but keeps coming back! I wish I could afford to take it to a shop, but having a disabled daughter that requires alot of seizure medication, and frequent doctor appointments my financial situation doesn't give me that privalage! If anyone can offer some advice I would be greatly.
Thankful! Thanks, and God Bless! DennisGA

    You shouldn't have burning wires if the fuses for the circuits are correct.The fuses should blow BEFORE the fire.check and make sure noones by-passed any safety devices .
