    If the smoke was from an electrical problem, then you'll need to get the vehicle inspected. Once the wiring smokes it is no longer good and needs to be repaired or replaced. The important thing to determine is why this happened, if the problem is bad enough the car can catch on fire, so get it checked out soon!
