Fire in my car
My middle console went up in smoke and i
smelt a burnt rubber smell i ripped off the
cover and found tht. Two cables had there
insulation completley incinerated and they
were red hot . wen seperated they cooled
don and wen they touch it sparks. Up . its a
2004 impala 1 of the wires was broken. I
turned my car off and aired it out. I checked
under my hood and nothing. So i turned my
car on and realized my dash lights. Nd my
radio lights were not working but the
warning lights and radio itself were still
working. I made it home safley because i
divided evrywire and placed a towel so it
wouldnt touch while i was driving home . i
jus wanna know if i fix it will it happen again
n will i have to pay alot. .
I have pics idk how to upload tho
It could just be the wire are stripped and they are touching? Do you have an AUX cable in there? Just put electrical tape and tape each individual.
You can email them to me?
Or just copy and paste?
I can email them idk how copy and paste works also. Yes i did have an aux and the wores are not touching now but they were before. When it was smoking. .
I actually had loke those radio transmitter things
Can also be af use is blown out if lights aren't on
I emailed u
An update i had no choice but to drive to work with my car like tht but decided to play w the cables to c which ones caused the spark aftet it sparked my lights on the dash and radio came back on for about 3 mins and went bck out i did it again nd boom lights bqck on for 3 mins. Evrything else is running fine.
Well we know cables are touching I can come take a look? If you want?
