It means you were working with the power to that system,
when you should have had the fuse out

Check for a blown fuse,maybe you will get lucky

93 suburu imprezz.misses wen warm.


my guess is loose or bad spark plug as it gets hot. you can only guess with so little info
turn on your radio to an AM station an listen to the car statics run as it sparks, does it change in freq as it starts to miss. if yes then the wiring or spark plugs at fault.

Took 2004 9-3 to the Dealer because car was vibrating and misfiring. Dealer replaced spark plugs. 01/19. Took 400 mile road trip 2 weeks later. Car was vibrating, smoking and sparks were coming out of...


I have know by experience that if you cross plug wires you can get an engine extremely hot ive seen it also seen it hot enough to get the exhaust manifolds glowing red if they havent put their hands in it and corrected the problem i would check the firing order to make sure it was correct and that they didnt cross the plug wires.

2000 chrysler 300m wont start tryed charger seen smoke from alt wire now there is no clicking no any thing


Alternator may have an internal short...remove it and have it tested. Also make sure to check the wire that smoked and any other fusible links to make sure they have not burned through and are no longer carrying voltage. Pay attention to wiring when putting it back together...any big sparks etc when re-attaching battery lead indicates you still have a short somewhere.

Radio does not turn on. the clock shows,the light


The memory wire of the radio,(the power for the clock and channel settings) is usually connected to the same circuit as the cigarette lighter. (there is a seperate fuse for radio) Check your cigarette lighter socket for damage or dirt, etc. could be causing the memory fuse to blow. Also check your cig lighter accesories (like cell phone chargers,etc.)

P.S. The backlight is also a seperate circuit (connected to interior light/parking light circuit)

99 cavalier Smoke coming out from under dashboard!


now this may be a long shot... but i had a similar problem on my cutlass. but it wasnt wiring...... it was from the tube running from the head of my engine...... the smell and smoke were coming from hot oil coming out of the crank case vent tube and then being sucked into the air inlet for the heater/ ac.

since a electrical wire's protective cover is petroleum based as is oil.... they smell very similar

Smoke around belt and sparks on Pulley holding belt


Most likely AC clutch assembly. Have it checked & unplug wires to it, if necessary, to use temporarily, so that clutch doesn't engage.

If you facing a little black smoke along with it your engine is running a little rich. Black smoke indicates unburned fuel and this could cause a black stain and leading to test failure
