My car wont start.
I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. i used the cigarette lighte and smoke came out of the dashboard above the gadges. now the battery light comes on, the speedometer jumps around and when i start it it starts and dies a second later. Its not the battery. the alternater works. Its got gas. and not of the fuses a blown except the cig. lighter fuse i am stumped Please help!!!
I had a 2001 Mercury Sable and smoke came from the dash board on a start one day. Got it running long enough to get down to the ford shop and it turned up that a vacuum hose (?) in the engine area was shot, which caused the smoke. Still don't know what exactly a vacuum hose in the engine is, but it was a $6.95 part--of course compounded with an $80 labor charge.
Are you positive its not the alternator? Have you tried changing the fuse for the cig lighter?

I quit smoking, and I'm going nuts right now! I've been eyeing dog hair, pinestraw, dust, etc. and thinking, "I wonder if I could smoke THAT." Hubby quit, too. With his recent bout of heart trouble and his stay in CCU, his doc told him if he didn't stop smoking, he'd probably die soon....

Why are cigarettes so expensive now days? With the cost of gas prices going up to $3.75 per gallon and the shipping cost for postages on the rise, this explains a part in prices going up.
