I own a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. I was using my car lighter when my car started filling with smoke very fast. I could not breathe. I was getting on the freeway. I used my horn to try to get help, but it did not work, not even the windows. I was very very scared.
I had just met my aunt for coffee. She was in front of me in her car and had no clue as to what was happening to me. I prayed and tried again to see if the windows would come down again. Then I took off my seat belt and opened the car doors and got away from the car.
I found out that a fuse to the lighter melted in the fuse box and set off the horn. Now the darned horn worked and kept beeping and blowing.
Then a man saw I needed help. He made sure the car was safe and opened the hood of the car and opened the fuse box to find the fuse melted and was broken in half. Now the engine light and the service light are on and some other things are going on. It took me some time to get myself together because of what had happened.
I took it back to the dealer to tell them what just happened to me. They did not even care or offer me a glass of water. I asked them if there were any recalls or issues. They said no, and I would have to pay them to see what is wrong.
I am so upset. I need to find a tech in Modesto who can help me. Can anyone tell me why this would happen.? I thank God that I am alive…
Thanks for all your help.
