I have a 99 a4 quattro, recently I got into my car and turn on the lights and smoke came out from underneath the steering columnn, now the dash light are staying on ( speedometer, power outlet etc) and when I turn on the headlights the dash lights go off, I have no idea whats going on, I def do think something blew or grounded due to the smoke in the car

It could be the light switch or its harness has fused together causing the problem. You would need to remove the column cover to check the wiring.
