ah, not sure, it hasnt turned off? even if you try to stall the car (manual?) first thing first get the car shut off, than if i were you id take it to a mechanic to see what you might have burnt out, more than likely a relay, but with electrical shorts it can be much more complicated than a simple relay or fuse.

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
If you haven't already, pull the fuel pump fuse. It can't run with no fuel. Sounds like an ugly electrical problem. The trouble with these problems is they can be something simple or horrible. You won't know until you start. I would start at the place where the smoke came out and check for burnt wires, bundles, etc. Then check all the fuses and relays.

change the HL fuses to 15A and check and replace battery if needed.
