ROUGH IDLE AFTER SMOKE AND SPARKS UNDER DASH DURING A RESTART

(1990 Ford Aerostar)
in Windsor, CA on January 18, 2011
I was starting the engine and let of the ignition too soon, turned the key again and when the engine started it was at a rough idle and then smoke and some sparks were seen under the dash somewhere or near the firewall. Now the idle is very rough and while it is drivable, I am 5 hours from home and need to leave on Wednesday morning. Any help would be appreciated very much.

i would have this checked immediately. there are plenty of wires around the firewall that are hot. a thurough examination of the harness is required to keep you safe for your ride home.
