Though I was going to have a melt down.:banghead: But that was it. I have Know Idea what cause it.:crying2: I'm hopping it was some dust arcing out. I blew it out with compress air. Has not repeated its self so I don't know if I should tear in to it or not. Also with out a manual I don't want to damage anything. Hope I don't get a face full of air bag. I better buy a fire bottle Just in case.

Anyone else have this problem?

What year is it? There is a TSB for my '94 Deville and others of that vintage for this occurance. It's just a bit of grease burning on electrical contacts. My car did it once, scared the hell outta me, and never did it again!

You might see it again, no real cause for alarm.
Just replace the turn signal switch. As mentioned the contacts have seen a lot of use and are getting burned/corroded and the switch grease got hot and started smoking.
A new switch will take care of all the issues.
