Lightbulb 01 smells hot when shut off

I have an 01 Cruiser. I just replaced the tensioner pulley and now the car smells hot and like burnt rubber when I shut it off. The serpentine belt is still in good shape. Maybe a cooling fan issue??? Anybody have experience with this issue?

If it didn't smell that way before the tensioner change, then that's where to start looking for what's causing the burnt rubber smell.
