On the wall of the car under the hood there is a block with 2 wires going to it. One of the wires sort of reddish is a single wire from the block then has a splitter and splits to two wires. Between the block and the splitter on the single wire is where the smoke came out.
When you say replace the wire is it the wire and the splitter also? What would it be called that i can replace it?
So there are no fuses in the circuit to deal with?
