My blazer has had starting issues for a while. Usually it would crank and run no problem after the second turn of the key. Now, it will try to turn over but has a serious voltage drop when trying to start and will sometimes start after numerous tries, other times not at all. I have a fully charged battery with 665 cca verifed. Replaced all battery cables, checked connections at starter. All good. I have noticed the cable going from battery to starter gets very hot, and the starter also gets hot and will smoke after trying to start several times. Ground wires all appear ok. Verified no problems with neutral safety switch. What am I missing?
