HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
You dont give alot of information on what shorted out - what component, or where you saw some smoke at, or what happened to believe something shorted out. This is all needed to make an accurate assessment of the problem.
It could be the ignition switch, fusebox, fusible link or any number of things, so the more detail the better I can help
