The accessories fuse is fine. Last night, smoke started coming out from the base of the steering wheel column and the whole cabin was filled with acrid smoke.

If it was a short circuit, could it have been because I disconnected the cables inside the sub box in the trunk? Because the subwoofer had stopped working first. What exactly is a short circuit anyway?

Thanks and Likes for please any answers...

You need to open up your dash and find out what actually smoked. Could be important. And google short circuit.

also some information on what type of vehicle it is and what all mods have been done to it (that actually effect the electrical system) would help a lot...
