[DML] Electrical problem

New DeLorean owner here - enjoying the highs and lows of owning the 
car.  I'm not a car guy but I'm learning fast.  I'm not an 
electrician either so I'm hoping for some advice on what I'm sure 
most owners on this list will see as a relatively simple problem:

While driving the car, the radio (original Craig) suddenly went 
off.  From under the power window and defroster switches came some 
smoke (a fair amount) for a half minute or so and what smelled like 
maybe a burning wire.  Now the radio, power window and defrost 
switches and A/C lamps are out.  No other problems with any other 
electrical components and the car runs fine.

I can replace the fuse easily enough (although it doesn't look fried 
to me) but with my limited knowledge, I'm guessing that's not the 
source of the problem but just a symptom.  I did replace the power 
window switches a few days ago and they worked fine but maybe that 
contributed to this problem in some way?  

Before I go in and start mucking around like a spider monker 
disassembling a nuclear device, I'd appreciate any thoughts.
