In aviation, we have a story about letting the smoke out of the box.... Every radio, controller, electrical component has its own black control box. They all sit in a snazzy radio rack, lined up and looking impressive. Each box comes packaged with magic smoke inside. It makes the boxes work. If you let the magic smoke out of the box (while working on wiring?), it will not work. You must remove the black box, send it back to the smoke shop for repacking. They put new magic smoke in the box, and it works again, until the next time you let the smoke out. I may have let the smoke out, on occasion, during my career.

I suppose the same works for letting the smoke out of the dashboard..... Keep this in mind, the next time you smell smoke! Try your best not to let the smoke out!

Sorry for the long dialog, but humor must prevail, or the next thing you know, the gas can and blow torch just appear.....
