The starter would be the type of heavy amperage draw I was thinking of in an earlier post but I don't know if the starter acting up is the cause or just a symptom.Thank you all for your help. The starter was acting up the day before and day the fire happen so does that mean it caused it?
Hey DD6154big update i finally got time to take things off and look at them, the alternator is bad and starter and i found that the big wire from the battery to the starter rubbed a hole in the cover and grounded out by the oil pan so i think that was the cause. so replacing the alternator i was thinking since i have emergency lights and a few more then most lights, would i be able to put a bigger on that puts out more amps or would that just mess things up? my truck does not have ambulance package.
