Hi my name is***** will be assisting you today

The over heating could be coming form hot coolant spilling on hot engine , as long as smoke was not from fire like a burning wiring harness ?

did you check under hood ?

The instrument cluster and climate control could be as simple as fuse blown, it could be related and it could be not related, we need to check fuses first to know

If my climate control is dead my radiator fan is dead too?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

yes it will be since it gives power to a/c clutch fan , I am assuming the a/c not working now correct ?

check your coolant level are you low ?

we need to know what is that smoke u seen coming from ?
