hmm...something like this happened in a car i was working on the other day, but, it was either freon, or radiator fluid, never found out which one, maybe something like that?

ahhhh:runaway::runaway::runaway::runaway:

that is scary...I came home from work one night and went to cut my truck off but it kept tryin to start itself back up and I could hear the starter constantly turning...well needless to say by the time I got the battery cables off they had gotten so hot that they melted the terminal on the battery and even when I got it disconnected the starter kept turning and burning and smoking...I kept thinkin somethin was gonna catch on fire..........no clue where that smoke is comin from though

I am betting your evaporator to your A/C went bad in your dash and the condensed freon is coming out in your truck some thing happened to mine smelled like somthing terrible had to roll the windows down and not drive it for week and a half so it could air out.

I'm starting to like sgtmetal's Freon theory ... That would explain why Chris said it didn't smell quite like a fire ... :thinking:

I've only seen that happen once - many years ago. A pinhole leak in the A/C resulted in a fine mist of (no doubt carcinogenic) stuff that wafted like smoke ...

Waaaaaaaaiiiiiiiitttttttttt a minute ..... :thinking:

Has Chris been doing more interior lighting experiments? He said in this thread less than 24 hours ago:

... that he'd done a 'quick battery test preview' of some LED's he'd picked up ... :doah:
