while I was driving down the highway I noticed some smoke coming from the left side of the steering column. this is the only strange thing I've found so far. it looks like the sodder might be melting around that one connection. any tight on this?

Somebody needs a new ignition switch looks like. Luckily they're not too pricy.

If it is discontinued you can get aftermarket available from http://rockauto.com or http://amazon.com or http://ebay.com or pay more at other places online or local parts store. If your just buying the switch the only differences I am aware of is there is one for manual tranny cars and one for auto tranny cars. The manual ones accommodate the steering wheel lock as far as I know.

I would keep an eye on it till you get it replaced. Taking it loose so you can see the other side or inside I would suspect it is shorting out. Which is a fire hazard. Thus the smoke.
