my car just cranks and cranks and just wont start and after trying to get the car to turn over smoke began coming out from around steering column
My first guess would be that your fuel pump is shot and you over heated your starter motor. Spray some start fluid into your throttle body and crank it over. If it fires up, you'll know that the pump is gone.
im thinking its the fuel pump and as i was trying to start up the ignition wire got hot and started to melt
You should only be cranking it for 15 seconds at a time. Then let it cool down for a few minutes. You're definitely overheating the wiring in the steering column by cranking it excessively. This will lead to expensive repairs!! HTH. - Jim
