The dreaded AC/Heat Wiring Harness MeltDown!

2001 Sahara...replaced the compressor last year. Freon is good, fan blows, heat works, AC does not. Literally smelled it burning and found AC wiring harness melted....I heard that when the blower motor gets old/wears out, its common for this to happen...Would hate to spend $100. on a new harness only for it to immediately melt again? Anybody else hear about or experience this? South Georgia heat will be here soon so I'll need the AC to work asap! Thanks!

Any chance you could narrow the location down?
