Default factory smoke out of MFS

I have a 2005 convertible turbo pt with 181000 miles on it and was going to town today and the fog light indicator came on I could wiggle the turn signal arm and it would go out. coming home it came back on ,I wiggled it and smoke came out.the fog light has been coming on all on its own for a week or so , so I had ordered a new mfs from rockauto. my question is would this be a common problem with the pt cruiser or would this just be a one off. just curious

thanks for the reply, I'm glad I ordered one last week. the wierd thing was it would only shut off the fog lights with the turn signal selected for a left turn

When i first saw the post "factory smoke out of MFS" i thought, what came factory that has smoke in it on our PTs? and how did it leak out?

But yes its a common issue as there is to much current flowing through those small contacts. I setup my own relays for the wifes 06' to reduce the load. I need to do the same for my 04' one day
