This has me concerned, every now and then only when stopped. I will see a wisp of smoke coming from the steering wheel at the top where it meets the column. If I feel the area it is not hot. it sets no codes, but definatly smoke. I have noticed 2 or 3 times in the last 4 months. It will wisp out smoke for about a minute and then stop anyone have a clue what causes this? And what should I look for? :o

I've had the same thing happen to mine every now and then. Always did wonder what that was all about. Now I know.

Yes, it's been reported here on occasion. The general concensus is that it's nothing to worry about.

IIRC our guru, bbobynski, has commented on it also. Do a search to ease your mind.

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. - Ludwig von Mises

Hi, My experience to this is that the copper or brass contacts for the

turn signals are getting worn meaning bad contact that will make arcs that burn holes into the hard rubber or plastic around the contact points. After a while those arcs will totally destroy the contacts and isolation- thats what happened to me with a Pontiac

-cost here in Sweden for the turn signal switch was $150.
