We had a similar problem and you might wish to investigate the following
Check that the steering column has not created a cascade of (?copper) shavings onto your ignition circuits in the steering column itself (from the power steering assembly in the top of the steering wheel head) - we had this on our 1992 LHD column gear Ducato and it made the glow lamps come on and light up all the time causing overheating and smoking , cleaning the circuits and wiring in there and lubricating the disc sorted it out - after some costly cylinder head removal etc - we learnt the hard way !!!!!
