Re: Whats going on now?
if it was still smoking when the key was in the "on" position maybe it was the coil wire, or the main power wire coming into the harness. but if there was a short in that wire i figure it would've popped a fuse, whereas the starter wire wouldn't.
will, if you saw smoke something melted. pull the connectors off the firewall and start inspecting the harness. i think you'll be able to see where the problem is. and get a multimeter and start investigating, you'll find your dead wires.
