Today, I went to re-start my 2002 after driving it for a half hour and then letting it sit for 15 miniutes. When I turned the key, nothing - no power to the starter and the ignition key start smoking and the cover on one of the wires to the ignition switch melted off.
Anyone have any ideas what this might be?
