Thanks for reading. We got socked with close to 80 inches of snow this week outside Buffalo. My 4-door Sahara JK 2011 (manual) was in the driveway during the storm. In an attempt to clear my driveway of snow, I put the Jeep in 4wd high and backed down part of my driveway so I could shovel out. Following my several attempts of “plowing” into the snow with the back of my Jeep, I started seeing smoke filling my cab and I detected a very strong electrical burning smell (my floor mats are out as well as a couple plugs due the water issue I have). Everything appears to work. Our roads are closed so I have not had a chance to test drive my Jeep other than in my driveway.
Any thoughts as to what the smell might be coming from? I also noticed a yellow spots of fluid on the snow (note my radiator fluid is red and my washer fluid is blue). There is lots of snow packed under my Jeep.
