If you had smoke in the car, something had shorted and your fortunate that fire was not a result. It is hard to say what it was. Has there been anything aftermarket added, like a stereo, alarm, or something that could have played a part in causing this type of problem?

I know it was something electrical that shorted out because it had that smell thats why I pulled as soon as I could, there is an after market stereo system but that has been installed on the car for who knows how long. Although it may put be putting alot of strain on the car`s electrical system because I have noticed before after I had been playin the stereo for a while, while driving after I turned the car off something smelled like it was burn I just though it was my old amp. Could this really cause my car to completely not start at all?
