What does it smell like? Has this car ever been in an accident? Do you see any frayed or exposed wires under the steering column? You need to give a little more detail, but I think that somewhere deep inside the heating system there is a frayed plastic edge, and being a 96, the plastics probably doesn't exactly meet today's standard of "flame retardant". Try gutting out the dash and heating pipes. Please provide a little more information so that I can better answer your question. Good luck. :-)
