Last night when I turned the car off, it smelled like overheating and there was a loud spinning noise coming from the back middle engine area somewhere. Sounds like its around the starter. I disconnected the battery, and soon as its connected again, the spinning noise starts and wont stop. Smells like burning wires or rubber. What is this?

Do you
have the same problem?

And it has a brand new starting motor and alternator. But an old battery.

Have a pro check this out. It could be a bad starter even though it's new or solenoid on starter sticking.
