Does the engine start? If it doesn't then it could be the ignition switch witch can be difficult to get to.

Clicking in the dash board could be a bad hazard warning light switch. Since you have steering column smoke along with it, I would suspect a dirty multifunction switch. Go to www.GAOwnersClub.com for instructions on removal and cleaning.
