Q: What type of wiring go In the dashboard of a car?

asked by on

I turned my car on and maybe 30-40 seconds after I did thick smoke starting shooting out from under my dashboard with a burning smell to it, I'm assuming it's wiring considering that I've seen the wiring before and even I who use to work for electronics thought it would be a good idea to get around to covering some wires but never had the time too. Now I don't know if the damage is more than just wiring

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
