Many were caused by the blower motor.

What does it say under the Fusebox cover for what fuse #1 controls???
According to the cover, fuse #1 controls the instrument panel, instument cluster check control, onboard computer and brakelights. I did notice that I had had a brakelight alert on the dash a few weeks ago, but on checking, the lights are okay.

I've not had the blower motor on at all.

Not sure if it's related, but I have a leak in the boot when it rains heavily.

BTW, the smoke was coming through the vents and definitely smelled like burning wires. Hoping it's NOT the computer!!!

I will have to dig out the manual and see if I can get the dashboard off....
