I'd just remove it and put it on the correct side (as shown in your other thread) and see what happens. I'm sure it will work regardless of the brand if it's correctly installed. I don't know how you can smell something burning and ask if that is normal. It's not. Do a little reaearch before you start installing things. The consequences of not doing research can be costly.....

Not trying to pass judgement on your skills at all. Just going with what you said. When did you know the instructions and parts were wrong? Before you installed them? You stated in the other thread that it (the skip shift) was for a different car and you plugged it into the wrong switch.
