Basically your speaker/s was/were faulty or your connections were poor or intermittent causing the output transistors to blow. These devices are extremely sensative and will not tolerate any short circuits or intermittent connections applied to them. You`ll probably find that you`ve only blown the transistors in one channel which are quite cheap on Ebay if you`re handy with a soldering iron. I`ve just repaired one recently and the transistors to the sub had blown, they were 2SB778 and 2SD998, they cost me £5.00 for the pair but I insisted that I take a look at his car wiring before I returned the amp back to the customer. I found that the sub cable was routed through the rear hinged seat where it had chaffed on the hinge causing a short circuit which would have resulted in another pair of transistors blown If I hadn`t have checked it before re-installation.

My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen


Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

Rubber smell and slight smoke


a rubber smell?? the best thing you can do is diagnose it properly by blocking it up high enough of the ground and let it smoke then slide yourself under there and see where it originates ... check for witness drip marks on the exhaust first??

Oven smokes and smells like burning plastic


This happened with my oven, happened twice to the same (newer) oven actually. The smell and smoke occurred both with the oven and with the use of burners on stove top. Turned out it was the main line cord which had a split. The first repair they replaced the thermol block and all the bolts holding it into place (for a total of 9 parts) the second time (about a year later) the repairman replaced the line cord and said that it probably should have been done along with the first repair. The smell coming from the oven before the repair was a toxic burning wire or burnt plastic smell. There was also smoke if the oven was left on long enough. The repairman said that the amount of heat to "cook" the connection on the line was at a fairly dangerous level. It was recommended to me by the fire inspector (who was in my unit for annual condo inspections) that it was unsafe and to have it repaired immediately. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

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
