Smoke started rising so I immediately turned the key to off. I attempted to start the car at this point thinking maybe it was somewhat like last time. My major problem now was that the car is not starting at all. There are no clicking noises or anything. The power to the headlights and overhead lights is on and bright even when trying to turn the key in the ignition all of the lights stay very bright. The turn signals do not work but yet the emergency lights are working. I checked every blade styled fuse in the fusebox and changed a few just in case including the radio fuse that I had originally connected the lights to. The lights have been completely removed and all of the wires have been taken out. If the problem is one of the larger black boxes on the boards I have no idea how to check to see if these are stil ok and I do not know how to change them. My best guess so far has been that something shorted out the solenoid on the starter. However my knowledge is very limited and I am not really sure if i am in the right area. I have included pictures below of the engine and the battery in hopes that someone could point out where the starter is in this car particularly, as i have not been able to follow the battery wires to it successfully. Thanks, Derrick.
