years ago i worked on a car where the driver died in it, and it sat with the carcass in it for months. obviously everything in the car was permeated with human death smell. the only way i was able to cure it, was to clean it out as best i could, and then take a pan of water on a hot plate with mothballs in it. it'll usually clear up any odors that might be present. it's an old trick, but it should still work. mothballs in a pan of boiling water will eliminate just about any obnoxious smell from a car's interior. i've used it during remodeling old homes too and it works for that application too.
