Most likely the higher amp fuses allowed a shorted circuit to contune to function which overheated some wiring and burned the insulation causing the smoke. Yes, you probably will need to replace some wiring. But, first the shorted / overloaded circuit needs to be identified and repaired.

Do you still have the problem ? If so, try disabling the ABS completely (electrically) by disconnecting the 50 amp breaker and remove the ABS controller. You should have brake power restored and be careful as the brakes will lock now if you apply too much foot pedal pressure. I hope this helps.

Vauxhall astra radio keeps switching on and off on its own


I had this problem for the last 2 weeks, didn't think much of it, but recently the car radio just turned on and off by itself, it decided to do so whilst the car was switched off and it drained my battery. After doing some tests with the Amp meter and removing the fuses for the radio and infotainment system the amps going through the batter went from about 0.7 to 0.001 (far more accpetable) - so the radio was draining the battery and randomly turning itself on/changing stations and the internal display system had stopped working.

after putting the fuses back in and re-testing the radio worked fine (almost like it had a full reset - no random turning on and off OR changing of radio stations)

the fuse box for my astra was next to the battery under the bonnet (see your car manual - I had lost mine so googled for it)

PAGE (267 or 265)

but it seems yanking the fuses for the radio (FUSE number 35 and 36) seemed to fix it (been a few days and no flat battery) -

It maybe an intermitent fault, in which case i'll have it looked into, but as garages charge an arm and a leg i'd give this solution a go and if your battery is good all you need to do is remove the fuses and put them back after say a minute or so)

Astra home electric grinder


Turn adjustment ring towards fine, until it cannot move, then back towards coarse about 5 numbers, that should give you a good start on the grind.

Check the fuses in the fuse block under the hood. Your clock fuse and radio constant power fuse are combined in this vehicle.
