I was driving and smoke started to come from the ventilator it smelled like burned plastic. The gauge from the temperature went down instead of up then I turned it off and when I turned it back up all the gauges did not work. I tried to turn back the lights and gauges started to move but without direction. The temperature light and the oil lights where stay on and the door sound was not normal. I remove a fuse from the lights and I put it back and the car did not wanted to start back up again. And the light from the dashboard stay on but only half.

Ive never seen this before. Usually these cars have cluster problems. The speedo and tach stop working, at which point the car needs a cluster. Did you see any smoke? The not wanting to start maybe be the ignition. Without seeing it, its hard to say.
