I have a 2001 Honda Civic. It is manual transmission and has 113 K miles on it. Recently, it has been very hot here and on a couple of occations when I have driven the vehicle for more than 20 min or I see white smoke coming out of the steering column. Also, it smells like plastic burning. I was worried about this so I opened the plastic covering and found that plastic on some part ( I guess electrical part) was burning (pics attached). I am kind of worried about the airbag as well. I am not sure if that is the only part which was responsible for the white smoke. Any ideas what I should be doing.
Also, I have seen the front headlights behave oddly. Occasionally I see that the only the right or only the left OR both lights work. I dont know if there is any pattern at all. Is this a safety concern? An
have the same problem?
