Big trouble from Charleston. After leaving a glorious day at the park. I turned the ignition switch and a plume of white smoke came out of the defroster/windshield vent. Smelling plastic, I popped off the fuse cover. The source of the smoke was behind the fuse. Switched key off, confirmed no fire.
I took off the cover (which I guess conceals the CCM) and there is a large wire harness.
The skinniest black wire in the harness is burned through. There is no black sleeve as far as my hand can reach behind the board.
The car turns over. But it will not fire...Like there is a fuel restriction. Chug chug chug, like out off gas.
It The gauges all appear normal. All electronics, with exception to an existing sunroof problem operate normally. No fuses are blown.
I turn the key, sounds normal. Fires for the briefest second and stalls out.
So, million dollar question (or 1800 dollar question, parts and labor), how screwed am I?
Thanks for a great forum. Fortunately, I only lurk around, since I have had a pretty decent run here lately. With exception to the incessant light bulb problem.
Thanks again. Have a great weekend,
