Smoking dashes...

> "What the @#$%%", says I and then I start to smell smoke. Ohh SH*T! 

For years, I've made it a point to leave the ground terminal on the battery 
loose enough so that I can pull it off without any tools.  In the case of my 
Ur-Q and 200q, this also means leaving off the screws that hold the rear seat 
bottom in place as the battery's under the seat.

This way, when the smoke appears, I can cut power to the whole car 
immediately, then take my time to figure out what's wrong.  Not a perfect 
solution but effective and cheap...
