Re: smoking battery cable
Yes I agree with what they said. The ground wire, or one of the ends are not making a good connection. Like was stated earlier the small body ground is trying to tote the load of the starter and it won't last long that way. Good luck. You might want to disconnect the small wire until you find the problem with the other wire.
