Hi my name is Stephen I have a 1991 mercury capri xr2 turbo. The battery just recently died in it I replaced the battery. Now all my power is going to my headlight motors. I have know power to my ignition and when I pulled my fuses to the lights I tried to start my car and the steering column smoked slightly. Please help

fix the shorts in the steering column first, power has shorted out and is going the wrong place now
