The burning smell was probably a fusible link that burned up. On the passenger side of the engine compartment near the firewall, there's a box that contains six fusible links. One of them is probably burned up; by looking at each one, you should be able to see the bad one. Disconnect the battery and use a multimeter to find the short to ground. You can download a copy of the FSM for your car from this site:

The section EL.PDF contains the wiring diagrams that you'll need for finding the short.

It's been awhile, but IIRC, a Z31 has the fusible links at the positive battery cable like this:
