On my 2003 Grand AM occassionally there is a wisp of "smoke" coming from the air bag in the steering wheel. Am I an accident waiting to happen?

Is your turn signal randomly making that clicking sound without actually being lit?

Yes, there is a random clicking noise probably from the turn signal.

What about the "smoke" from the steering wheel? Is htat another symptom of the dirty contacts? I did not see anything about this.

I actually had the exact same thing happen to mine. I saw the whisp's of smoke 3 times. After I cleaned mine out, the clicking stopped, and theres been no smoke since.

I had that recently happen to me and it was actually a short that was causing it.
