Discussion Starter #1
I was driving my fsb this weekend and ran over some railroad tracks, suddenly my starter engaged and made the most gawd awful noise. Pulled over shut down and restarted. Everything was fine for two more blocks where it just died. I got out, lifted the hood just in time to see my negative battery cable melt off of the battery post leaving the clasp still on the post. Not to mention the wires coming from the post and to the solenoid were hot as hell. Found that my starter solenoid mounted on the firewall went bad and it seems to have likely grounded out and screwed my starter. Anything else I should look into aside from a new starter? :banghead

Well the starter is toast. Install going on tonight, then to check everything else from push button start to the battery to make sure it doesn't happen again.
