I was driving home today from work and smoke started billowing from under the hood, then suddenly my vehicle had no power.
No electrical at all. Everything is dead. The only thing that comes on is the check engine light when the key is turned over.
I popped the hood and jumped out of the car.
When I opened the hood, the negative battery terminal cable was melting and smoking.
The alternator and battery were replaced in the summer.
