    Lol. Thank the previous owners. I had to almost rewire the whole car when I got mine. Good luck man. Download the FSM from nicoclub and follow the electrical troubleshoot.

    Just my 2c here:
    before doing what MFNchip said, go under the dashboard and then under the car (wherever the smoke was coming from) and try to identify all the burned/crossed/naked wires.
    use some electrical tape and isolate everything (including bare wires that are not burned but might have the slightest chance of touching some grounded piece of metal)
    then do what MFNchip said

    Sounds like a mess. You are going to have to dig in and figure out what wires shorted or burnt out and why. Is there any evidence of an aftermarket stereo system or amplifier? Thats usually the cause.

    PAha bad stereo wiring . Maybe like a 16 gauge speaker wire to power the amp off the back of stock cd player then power to the rca jack from the back left speaker. Then when it ducking melts and shorts the accessory wire to ground and they go through rewiring everything back wrong in the process pull the battery cables for a couple days so the codes go away and put it up on Craigslist . Thats how I got mine. Best money I ever wasted. Love this thing.
