1982 Chevy El Camino V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
Jump the old, dead battery and it started; didn't hold a charge after running for 30-40 minutes.
Jumped it again and accicently left the ignition switch on. Smoke came from area near alternator bracket where jumper cable was connected. After that it would not turn over and no lights or horn.
Replaced battery. Now have lights and horn but no radio. No apparent burned wiring and no lingering odor.
Checked some of the fuses and none appeared to be bad.
I have limited experience but can replace an alternator and maybe a starter. Just want to narrow the problem down to deternine if it is something I can do or not.
Thanks for your help. KT
have the same problem?
