Question about 1990 Honda CRX
While driving I notice smoke coming from the steering column. After I turned the car off I couldn't find anything that was warm. I tried to resart the car and the switch was dead as well as the dash. The battery was good and the headlights worked.

This seems to be a somewhat common problem (search for intermittent starting problem), which i've had many times, including last week. I've had battery cables, clamps, ignition switches, and keys replaced over the 5-6 times i've brought it in for the issue. This week was the first time they've actually replicated the issue though.
They found a dead spot on the commutator? within the starter motor. Replacing starter motor & solenoid switch. Hopefully should solve it for good. We'll see. I pick it up tomorrow.
As many times as i've dealt with this, i finally traded communications with BMWNA to see if they had anything documented (TSB or SIB etc) but not much came of that. However they did call my dealer which i think got their *** in line.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck
