That wire feeds everything but the starter. It's a fusible link on the 99 & up truck and probably is on yours as well. The fact that it smoked again after you replaced it means is you have a serious short somewhere downstream of the wire. You need to track down the short and fix it.

Ok went today to asses the situation I noticed a black coated wire coming from the fss on my ip to a small sensor in the head near the big black hose for the water pump this sensor has two wires connected and the black one was off laying on the motor and when i picked it up it was a little melted and charred is there any power going through this wire when truck is on? I dont have a tester

Yes.
That runs the cold timing advance and the high idle.
It hooks to a temp switch behind the thermostat.
