: Today, I went to re-start the 2002 after driving it
: for a half hour. 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?

: 1972 BMW 2002 Tii (I thought it was running well...)

A shorted out switch ! Replace it.
