I have a Mazda Demio 2006 and 2 weeks ago my son dropped a plastic pen down the central air vent. I tried to retrieve it but it slid right down inside to where I can’t even see it anymore.
I wouldn’t have thought it would cause any damage but yesterday I started smelling a plastic burning smell followed by smoke coming from around the central air vent (at first I thought it was coming from the stereo,)
Could the pen be causing that kind of issue? Or is it likely some other electrical fault issue.
I’m asking because diagnostics will take a long time and expensive. If I can direct them to the problem it will cost less
