Suspect a burned-out 'fuse link'--a special section of the wiring that protects the car if certain components short out and overload the wiring (why don't they use fuses to protect these areas you ask, cheaper to use fuse links I say). Anyway, these fuse links may or may not protrude from the wiring harness, and the job of the repair person is to find the burned out link, replace it with a like device plus locate and repair/replace the shorted component. Good luck!

Why is there no power to starter or lights?

What smoked ,the Fuse? SHORT ? what fuse ? Main fuse - explain ? Still no fire ? Doesn't crank , no spark ,what ? Does the starter spin the engine when you turn the key to the start position ? a crank no start condition . or a no crank - no start ! Check fuse F1 80 amp in the under hood fuse box.

91 Ford Mustang what is common wiring problems and starting problem with the starter and heard in a pop under the hood on the driver side n smoke coming from drivers side under hood?

You did not mention what the status of the car was when this happened (VERY IMPORTANT... DO SO NEXT TIME). If you were attempting to start the engine when this happened, your starter may have failed. Starters occasionally shunt and cause this. Try replacing the starter AND starter solenoid. Also, verify that your battery connections are good, and that the battery wires did not have a meltdown. If they are burned, REPLACE THEM as well.

I have a 93 caddy deville 4.9 that wont start i have replaced the starter and when that didnt work i thought must be a bad vat switch so it was changed still no luck im getting 12 volts power to the...

The starter's mechanical 'relay' on a 90's caddy it attached to the starter, it is the solnoid and may be defective. Check your connections and harnesses for the smaller wires going to the solinoid. There probably is a standard electrical relay under the hood in the power distribution center, and it should be marked either in the owners manual or the top of the center lid itself. You can swap it out with another standard relay not needed like your ABS or horn relay to see of this is the problem.
