alternator red wire super hot melted
So i had the truck running and was just checking the fluids when i noticed little puffs of smoke coming from the back of the alternator where the red wire connects. then i noticed the rubber that protects the outside of the wire had been melted. so i disconnected both batteries to undo that wire and then the nut and top half of the screw broke off, i guess from the extreme heat. but the screw was actually melted inside of that nut. now i'm guessing a new alternator is en route but what caused that in the first place.
could my sub do that? i have had the sub in the truck since day one and have since done the erg delete and replaced the oil cooler and noticed nothing back there.
