Question about 1991 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Can anyone tell me why smoke would appear from the steering column. It sounds as though a fuse has blown or something has shortened out. Everything still appears to be working as far as I can tell.

The most commin issue is a turn signal switch. The plastic heats up, the contacts pull slightly apart and the amperage goes up, and smoke. Surgery is needed to locate the issue, and this takes special tools and pullers, on your car. Turn signal replacement is kind of tricky, maybe best left to a shop.

Will not start

Look for NAKED or LOOSE wires under dash because something is shorting out cause the blown fuses. Possibly in the "Steering Column" if you truck has TILT Steering. LOOSE PLUGINS could cause this as well GOOD LUCK!

I`ve replaced my steering column and my car won`t start? Do I have to reprogram my computer or something?

Double check the wiring to the ignition unit and make sure everything is still lined up correctly.

My car stalled. I saw that my 25 amp engine fuse was blown. i replaced it and everytime i turn the ignition it will blow my fuse again.does anyone have a suggestion?

Something major is damaged. I suggest putting a circuit breaker in place, for diagnostics, then follow wiring with an inductive Amp meter to locate the problem area.

Where is interior fuse block on 2006 pt cruiser?if it is to left and below steering column,how do you open access panel?

It appears as though the only fuse block is the intergrated unit under the hood nearest the airbox. Remove the cover and everything should be labeled. What kind of problem are you having? Do you have an owner's handbook? Let me know if you need one?

Smoke from 95 Camaro steering column

Where ever there's smoke, there's fire. This could be the multifunction switch arching and burning the lubrication in the assembly. Multifunction meaning, one switch that operates the turn signal wipers, cruise etc.
