i recently installed a led light kit into my car interior and after turning it on, it worked for about 5 seconds before smoking, so i took it all back out of the car, installed it on a 12v computer power supply and everything worked fine, the only differences between the two setups are, one was grounded near the fusebox to a spot i grounded my multimeter to while testing for voltages at fuses. the other setup, was grounded right to the power supply. is it possible that a bad ground caused it to smoke?
