So I have noticed when I start my car (key turned to the start position) if the car doesn't start right away I will see some smoke coming from under the dash.
Over the past week it seems like the starter isn't always getting power, it will try to crank but won't turn over completely. I initially thought this was due to my ignition switch. I replaced that a few days ago and I am still experiencing the same problem.
Up until this morning it would eventually start for me. This morning there was finally enough smoke this morning for me to see where it was coming from.
It was surprisingly a ground wire that connects to one of those circular ground posts under the dash.
It had a plastic brown end to cover the spade on it, that burned first and was probly why there was little smoke initially. Now the insulator wrap is burned away and the wire is black (burnt).
So what would cause this? A blown fuse? A broken relay?
