It's impossible for me to say with certainty what your problem is, but anytime there's smoke from a circuit, it's bacuse the wires have shorted (to ground or each other), or a component has failed.
If your wires shoted, it should've poped a fuse. Otherwise, they would've burned completely and possibly started a fire.
You should take your cluster apart and have a look.
