Smoke from steering wheel

I also thought I was going crazy on my way home from work today. there was a bit of smoke coming from the steering wheel. it stopped and when I got home the car seemed fine, I couldn't smell anything odd or see anything and the engine looked fine. I am about to drive 5 mins away and I have to get to work in the morning. is it safe to do so? I am going to call my mechanic in the am.

Smoke from steering wheel


Not a clue but I would take it to a dealer and have it checked. If it ever goes up in flames you do not want to be in the car.

I was driving my 2005 dodge Dakota today and my transmission overheated I let it sit and the overheat warning went off in no time... well half way home my tire literally started smoking and it was coming...


Failure to change your brake fluid every 2 years
Neglect to take the brakes apart once a year to
remove rust,inspect parts & lube things,plain & simple
Now you need new calipers,new rubber flex hoses, &
service the rear as well & flush the complete system
If the trans overheated that may have to come out & be
rebuilt,don't tell me no on the trans I used to own a trans shop
You change trans & power steering fluids every 3 years or less
Why would you drive one mile with a trans warning light & then
smoke from a seized caliper
Also the over heated caliper may have ruined your wheel hubs
Don't mean to be hurtful, but you have to work on vehicles a
couple times a year,take things apart for no reason in most
peoples minds
You should never have has one issue on a 2005 vehicle,
it's neglect,I'm sorry

Steering wheel smoke?


They will find the problem if they take it apart. Could be the airbag, horn, any controls on the steering column. It sounds like it may have some burnt wiring.

Steering wheel locked.. can't move key ...


The key should turn if you turn wheel as much as you can while turning key

Toyota echo steering is very stiff


Look at the amount of power steering fluid in your power steering pump.
If it is low, then add until a normal level.

If you don't know how to check or add fluid correctly get help in doing so.

If this does not help, then have the Power Steering Pump Tested by a mechanic.
